Roslyn Harbor on Long Island Sound provides inspiration for talented woodcarver Tom Langan.
Tom Langan's hand-carved gallery sign hangs from a post-and-beam barn. The building is one of many that he built himself on his 1-acre property.
A sculpted family of egrets lines up in similar fashion against Tom's red-barn studio.
Carvings of a great white heron and a pair of egrets tuck into the harbor sea grass. The heads and necks of these sculptures are carved from Russian olive branches.
Tom brings his trademark rich patina to carved-fish weather vanes.
To create the illusion of movement, Tom often displays his work in groupings of three or four shorebirds.
The collection of carved birds looks so real you want to reach out and touch them.
