Spring—Bang in the Face

“I stuck my head out the window this morning and spring kissed me bang in the face."—Attributed to Langston Hughes

Yesterday, I jumped at the chance to experience spring without the rainfall and humidity that characterized much of the prior week. I took this shot at Flat Rock Brook Nature Center, in my hometown, Englewood, N.J.

I’ve been coming to this 150-acre preserve and education center since childhood, but—as reading Thoreau and taking a photography course have taught me—you can always find something new in all the old places if you keep your eyes wide open.
