Vermont's Winooski River

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 5 January 2015 in Landscape & Rural.

Just a short walk from our daughter's house in Vermont is the Winooski River. (Winooski is an Indian name for "Onion"). The river is just one of many beautiful scenes that we enjoy while there.

This is a shot that I grabbed the day after Christmas. We had snow on the ground through Christmas Eve, but we awoke on Christmas morning to see bare ground, thanks to a "warm" rainstorm that passed through on Christmas Eve.

Behind the distant clouds are some beautiful peaks of the Green Mountains, but the clouds did not cooperate on this particular photo shoot.

I hope that your New Year was pleasurable and I wish everyone a wonderful 2015.

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
