YESTERDAY the fields were only grey with scattered snow,
And now the longest grass-leaves hardly emerge;
Yet her deep footsteps mark the snow, and go
On towards the pines at the hills’ white verge.
I cannot see her, since the mist’s white scarf
Obscures the dark wood and the dull orange sky;
But she’s waiting, I know, impatient and cold, half
Sobs struggling into her frosty sigh.
Why does she come so promptly, when she must know
That she’s only the nearer to the inevitable farewell;
The hill is steep, on the snow my steps are slow—
Why does she come, when she knows what I have to tell?
D.H. Lawrence, Amores. 1916

IN the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!
Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The gray smoke towers.
Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!*

We are on photography tour of our favorite places in Washington, DC and Virginia. The beautiful Great Falls in McLean, Virginia (DC area) is always a wonderful place to visit and photograph especially in summer. It provides beautiful landscapes during any season, stunning color and wonderful for art on canvas, metal and prints. This image processed in HDR is from our last photoshoot and we return this July for another photoshoot to capture its beauty again from other vantage points. If in DC or VA be sure to add Great Falls to your “must photograph” itinerary. _Jacyjoypals
