The Air Line was once a railroad renowned for its relatively straight course from Boston to New York - "as if by a line drawn through the air." You can still find lumps of coal left over from the steam era. Today the rail bed has been converted to a Connecticut linear park and hiking trail.

At this web site you'll find over 14,000 photos and video clips of the natural environment - plants, animals, and landscapes - taken on the Air Line Trail in eastern Connecticut, from the Fall of 2001 until the present.

"Mates" - First Prize, Connecticut Audubon Society Photo Contest, 2009.


You don't need to leave your room.
Remain sitting at your table and listen.
Don't even listen, simply wait.
Don't even wait.
Be quite still and solitary.
The world will freely offer itself to you.
To be unmasked, it has no choice.
It will roll in ecstasy at your feet.

-Franz Kafka

It's simple, really;
Becoming one with nature.
Look, listen, let go.
