March Ember

I took this photo last March when visiting my brother Tim’s sugar shack in East Smithfield, where he and his family have started a small maple syrup business—Robson Maple. I was there to check out his new evaporator and was struck by the steam and sparks shooting out of the chimney, making a lovely winter scene. A thirty-second exposure was key to capturing the lights so the viewer gets the same warm and cozy feeling their homestead gives me. If you were walking by and needed shelter, you’d feel like you could get it there. And you’d be right.
