Coal-black tree trunks gleaming, as Carl Kurtz, our favorite photographer whose work is featured on the cover of the Berkshire Encyclopedia of Sustainability, explains:
“Evening twilight begins after sunset. Often the wind lulls and if the sky is clear it appears a deep cobalt blue. There is a charm at this period of time as the daylight fades into impending dusk. Listen for the bass notes of the great horned owl and look to the SW for Venus, the evening star.
“The works of nature are an everyday gift that sustains us. Today more than at anytime in past human history, natural systems need our support.”
We join Carl in wishing each of you have a very Merry Christmas!
