Photo of the Week: Winter Is Coming

"There's a certain slant of light,
Winter afternoons,
That oppresses, like the heft,
Of cathedral tunes . . . "

—Emily Dickinson, Poem 258

Photographer and CBF's Senior Educator Bill Portlock captured the icy, golden-hour sunset above from Bishops Head, Maryland, several winters ago.

At this time of year when darkness sets in way too early, when slap-happy winds turn your cheeks a ruddy hue, it's easy to hibernate indoors. But don't forget, we've still got lots going on! From member meetings, to advocacy and volunteer trainings, to Christmas tree/wreath sales, to polluted runoff workshops—winter is yet another busy and productive season for us, and we hope you'll come out and join us. See our events calendar for more.      

So bundle up, get out there, and enjoy those winter afternoons
