Music Favorites & Influences

Sunrise over Salmon Brook Farm – East and West

I caught the sun rising through the mists over the eastern ridge in late October 2013, and the moon setting in the west, a bit earlier.  The “black lace” effect of the trees reminds me of one of our favorite Ian Tyson songs, Farewell to the North. Ian & Sylvia Tyson were a phenomenal folk duo back in the 60s, leaving a legacy of beautiful recordings behind.
