Winter Images From Skylands And The Surrounding Area
Cheryl DuLong, who works at Skylands, my home on Mt. Desert Island, Maine, keeps me updated by sending photographs that she takes of my property, as well as the surrounding area. Cheryl loves to commune with nature and, because she has a good eye for photography, I like to share her images on my blog. Enjoy!
