Autumn Snowfall


I build these birdhouses using custom license plates that I design and make in my studio. They will never rust. Hang in dappled sun or full shade for happy birds and long lasting colors. The air vents on the sides, under the protection of the eaves, allow air flow through-out. The roof is removable for easy access to clean out old nests.

New England sure is beautiful in its Autumn finery. Add an early season snowfall and feel the magic!

Referred to as the “Halloween Snowstorm”, this one began October 29, 2011, with large flakes, drifting slowly but purposefully to earth. By the end of it, up to 24″ of snow had fallen in some parts of Connecticut (though not so much here by the coast). Trees that were still fully leafed out came down under the weight. What a mess! But for me it began with the beautiful scene you see here. When I saw the flakes coming down against the autumn colors, I headed out with my gear to shoot what I found around town. Stopped momentarily in the dead end of the road where I live, just to read the light, I shot a few frames of the scene looking down the road. Featured on this birdhouse is one of those shots.
