Mailbox, Suspended in Winter

This mailbox photo may become one in a series of photographs – the kind of series where one takes the same shot every season of the year.

We were driving home from a nature break at Devil’s Lake State Park near Baraboo, Wisconsin, when I saw the very mailbox I captured this autumn. It was an easy hop out of the car and a quick shot, especially since I was half frozen from tramping in the park, and the windchill was in the frostbite zone. It wasn’t until I downloaded my photos on my Mac, that I realized the mailbox looks as if I caught it mid-flight, ready to hurtle itself into my camera lens.

    It really looks as if the mailbox is flying through the air – great picture!

    Ulla’s right. The mailbox looks like its hovering in mid-air. Perhaps it’s a haunted mailbox? 🙂

    That is a great shot! I noticed a story in one of the papers in NW Montana this morning where the county is taking no responsibility for mailbox damage from their snowplows. ‘Course the bullet hole…

    lol! That was exactly my thought when I saw this! I was ready to shout “Watch out, Bo!”

    Great shot. 🙂

    It’s wonderful – and a great idea to look at it through the prism of the different seasons.
