0416: Too Nice to Be Inside

IMG_8507_01_LR_12

Today I have three groups of fresh images – all thanks to the onset of Spring. It’s just too beautiful to sit here writing so I’ll be brief. The first group are snail shaped fossils found at the quarry this past week. They are generally much harder to find up there (compared with brachiopods – they’re next). So my season of digging and hunting for fossils has begun on a good note!

Next are the brachiopods – again, all (and many more) from the same two visits. It’s easy to forget that all of these squiggly little things, these marine invertebrate life forms lived right here nearly 400 million years ago!

And there was plenty of time to reacquaint with the neighboring woods.

Finally, a reminder – my current show at the Marist College Art Gallery will remain up until Saturday April 25th. If you should find yourself in the Poughkeepsie area please come by. It’s a beautiful show in a terrific space. (The above image courtesy of my dearest friends at Katvan Studio).

Thanks for today’s visit.
