Sunshine!

I fill my world with color.   I am left-brained, creative, intuitive and expressive.   I see contrast and can capture rare moments that might pass others by.     My soul is refreshed and renewed in the sunshine and apart of this is my favorite flower ~ the sunflower! I jump at the opportunities to capture pictures…

August morning

The white trail called us forth this morning.   The weather was cooler and no humidity.    This trail embraces and hugs the lake I dubbed as my “happy place”.  Maggie was grateful to be out exploring the scent. The boats all sat waiting for their owners to dance with them on the water.  The fisherman…

Rocks and Bolders

The terrain in Shenandoah National Park is wonderous.   The Applician Trail whines through the park.  Little did I know what I had said yes to when a dear friend asked if I wanted to come.    My mindset was completely different than last summers adventure and I am never one to miss a photo opp!…

The Little Things

Many of us take walks in nature and to accomplish something – whether its to get our daily steps in, or to channel the dogs energy or just to clear our heads, I understand as I have done all of the above.  When was the last time you truly embraced nature and noticed the little…

Lake Time

On a glorious afternoon in August a group of friends gathered for a reunion.   The magic of the water was aparent.   Opening up the doors to the home and stepping out on the deck you were drawn to the water. The abundance of dragonflies danced around us.   This little slice of heaven provided the perfect…

Red Truck

This beauty arrived one afternoon ~ out of no where and no owner was around.    I jumped at the opportunity and grabbed my camera to capture this unique machine.    From a distance the red polish glimmered in the sun. Drawn to the lines and rareness of this find parked across from my home…

Looking UP!

I have always been one to focus forward.   Sitting idle is not in my being.   I always have a to do list, and my head is always down focused on one or many different things.     The word SLOW was not in my world, until recently. I can remember growing up and laying in the…

Rolling Dunes

My heart seeks and searches for adventure.   Finding gems off the beaten path.    The land untouched by development running parallel to the ocean is breathtaking. I had a unique opportunity to explore and climb the dunes.   There was an abundance of vegetation growing on this land and I chose to explore the highs and…

Storm Dance

Far off in the distance you could see it coming.   The dark clouds gaining strength with the rays of sunlight behind.   Standing atop the edge of the cliff I was mesmerized watching the clouds twist and turn, reshaping themselves within minutes. Time stood still as I watched in the quiet of the waning day.   There…

Flowers and Ferns

Wandering through the trails in Virginia, the sounds of the hustle and bustle of everyday life far removed from ear shot.   High in the hills and wandering the Application Trail, I was amazed at the beauty and constantly changing terrain.     The trees were taller and the woods thicker but what struck me is the…

Relics of Ole’

Wandering the west side of Pennsylvania I came upon these beauties that were once in their prime.   Now dis-guarded and long forgotten.  They sit raw and exposed to the elements with no claim of ownership.     Driving through the back roads I road past them only to be called back.   I turned around to capture…

Sunrise

I love the peace and quiet of the mornings.   When the kids were young, I always wanted that first cup of coffee to breathe and set the pace for the day.   Things haven’t changed much and I do love the mornings, whether on my deck or sitting out in nature. This particular morning at the…
