Winter Photography Trek with Jim McCarthy

February 18, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Brunswick photographer James McCarthy will lead a photography trek at the Cathance River Nature Preserve that’s inspired, in part, by Thomas Merton’s  poem “Love Winter When the Plant Says Nothing.” Merton would have been the first to admit, I think, that his poem’s title is somewhat facetious. Even in winter, buried under snow, plants are saying something, even if it’s the equivalent of a quiet whisper, “I’m waiting for spring.” Even in winter, then, there’s much to explore photographically in the preserve: green ferns growing from a snow-covered rock; ice formations along the banks of the river; abstract patterns of tree shadows criss-crossing in blue across the white snow; animal tracks in the snow. So I invite others to join me on a walk with our cameras at the ready to record whatever there is to see and love on a winter’s morning in mid-February.

This walk is FREE but registration is required. Please email Andrea at to register.
