The reason I bought the property, as well as the reason for the location of the house, is all because of the view of a place I call the Deep Ravine. Admittedly it's not all that spectacular; indeed, it's relatively ordinary as woodland views go. It's a tiny slice of wilderness with just enough drama to captivate me. And since it's mostly wetland along and beyond my property line, there are no signs of humans as far as the eye can see, creating an effective illusion that I have it all to myself.
After living on the property for several years, I've been able to enjoy The View with a full palette of seasonal shades and meteorological moods. Although it's beautiful year round, I think the best time to enjoy it is late April, just before the trees have fully filled out. Hover over an image to see when it was taken; click to enlarge it. Also see May Day and Thanksgiving for annual images to compare.
