In June, 2012, I decided to end this phase of my project, after four and a half years of early-morning treks to the camera site (left). By autumn, I had expected to be preoccupied with the house we are planning to build overlooking a wooded ravine in southern Maryland. When it's completed, I'll have trees to photograph right outside the living room windows. Therefore this project could resume as early as 2014 with new scenes. I'm already planning camera angles.
