One of my favorite monuments in a town full of great monuments is
tucked away in a grove of holly and elm trees on the grounds of the
National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC. The twelve foot
tall statue of Albert Einstein, by sculptor Robert Berks, has a rough-hewn
quality that makes it look as it were cut from treebark. To sit there
with Albert is a magical experience.

|Leaf in Ice, from An Ice Storm series, photographed January 18, 2011 by Shannon Finney|
Winter is my favorite time of the year to photograph. The skies are a
hundred different shades of grey, or the brightest, clearest blue when
the sun breaks through. I could hear the icy rain on the rooftop all
through the night, and when I awoke, I found the landscape outside my
door transformed. This leaf seemed to emerge from under
its icy blanket.
