It’s Eagle Season

Autumn is a favorite time of year for me as so much is going on. Beautiful fall colors and best of all, the arrival of the Bald Eagles at Conowingo Dam. With two of my photography classes being offered this week, of course I ‘had’ to get up to the dam beforehand to get the…

The Deer in the Meadow

In my recent stay in Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, my friend and I went in search of White-tailed deer several times. Known to spend time at Big Meadows and the roads leading to the lodge we would troll the roads in hopes of finding one. The past two years that I’ve been, the deer…

A Cedar Waxwing

This week I’ve had the special privilege of having a flock of Cedar Waxwings spend time in my garden. One afternoon I sat inside my photo blind in hopes of the flock landing on one of my water fountains. I could hear them in the tree above me zee-zee-zeeing, but when a few would drop…

Nature as Art ~ Art Exhibit

As an artist photographer, the dream to hold your own private art show seems like finding a beautiful Unicorn. Rare and nearly impossible to achieve, the honor has been bestowed upon me. Beginning on November 2, 2017, it is with great honor to announce my own private art show being held at Gallery 333 in…

Oh Shenandoah

It’s been a warmer year than usual and autumn colors are slow to show themselves. Visiting Shenandoah National Park in my perennial trip with my hiking friends from the Mountain Club of Maryland, I brought a photographer friend and we arrived early to enjoy the scenery. My true reason for visiting was to climb the…

Cedar Waxwings

One of my more favorite birds is the Cedar Waxwing. Usually only hearing their zee-zee-zee high in the treetops, they tend to visit my garden only in early spring. This fall though I’ve heard a small group visit the garden now and again. These masked bandits keep their eyes on me when I’m outside and…

Assateague Island National Seashore

Maryland, my Maryland. A truly unique area where within a two-hour drive we can go from the mountains to the seashore. With the Nation’s Capital just a short drive away as well as Philadelphia, the birthplace of our nation. It’s a wondrous area with endless places to explore. At the end of September, we were…

Autumn Colors

Autumn is beginning and with that lovely colored leaves are starting to fall. Visiting a local park, I picked up a few and brought them home to see what I could do with them. It’s a rather simple thing to do. Using a 100mm Macro Lens with my Canon camera, I staged the leaves in…

Come and Sit a Spell

Come and sit a spell with me. Under the trees and along the canal. The leaves are a-changing and the air is brisk. And while we sit, perhaps the world will pass us by. Distracted and absent are they. It is us that see the beauty of the morn. Hearing the distant thunder of the…

Growing Pains

 I’m not sure about you but I can’t help myself. I tend to collect things. Shoes, boxes, bags, um…camera equipment. And with the camera equipment comes more bags. Storage and portability is probably one of the biggest challenges that photographers face and don’t realize it until they are knee deep with equipment. One of…
