Gnomes

Entering this magical place you could feel how different it was from the traditional trails.   Maggie bounded through the paths as if looking for something. Happy as always, but exploring all the nooks and crannies.   Then I started to notice the difference in the trees.   There were if you will little doorways.   The hollowed out…

Lines in Nature

Another day into the woods as spring opens around me.   We run through our days without acknowledging what is happening around us.  Today as I stepped forward into the woods I was struck by contrast of the wood to greens.  The growth of spring has exploded around me with buds and baby leaves surrounding me….

Maggie @ the Beach

I love watching children play in the sand.   The freedom of exploration and movement, the delight in their senses well the same can be said for a dog at the beach. Everything is exciting.   The sand, rocks and water all create a delicious field of adventures.   Catch a wiff of a passing dog, remnants of…

Yellow Trail

The day started early and off into on the Yellow Trail I go.   Maggie is loving the smells of spring as we venture forward.  Off to a switch back climb and the calves are starting to wake up.  The green hues of spring are appearing and the sun is bright with the crisp air of…

Kinsey Distillery

I have a fascination with old abandoned building.   I have attempted to explore this distillery for the better part of six months, but the local police and I have been in conversation when I attempted to enter the site.   They watch and protect, whereas I want to explore and capture photographs.   On this particular…

Brrrrr ….

Sub zero temperatures, snow on the branches of the trees.    The lighting was perfect that morning and the sun shown through the trees. The barn off in the distance still had the snow on its roof.   All the animals were tucked away from the weather.    It was way too cold to venture forward…

Water and Ice

The day was crisp and clear as I ventured out.    The white trail was not far from home and the need for a challenge was the plan for the morning. Maggie was only too happy to sniff and explore new directions.  Up over the hill and down ~ today was different as the weather…

Lawn Mower Graveyard

In search of unique and different areas to photograph, I stumbled upon a lawn mower graveyard.    John Deere, Toro, Cub Cadet, Snapper; the names, makes and models were abundant and all set aside for what? I had no idea that there were that many brands of push, riding and industrial mowers.    Set out…

Gray days of January

I need to take my dog Maggie out on a daily basis but man was it a cold January morning.   My dog loves to be off the beaten trail exploring the scents in nature. That day I chose to stay close to home.   And as always, I have my camera in hand.   Boy capturing great…

Rolling along

The sky opened up to the crisp blue that makes my heart sing.    A perfect day to be outside and explore what is so close, but never realized.    The hills of Chester County are an abundance of beauty and trails mixed throughout. I have driven past the parking lot many time and never…

Beauty of the old

Within a short walk I stumbled upon this beautiful old structure.   The vines have grown and covered this masterpiece. I have walked this path many times but never realized the gem that was tucked away.    When everything is dormant this emerged out of the tangled brush.     I love exploring old structures the shapes,…

Beauty in the snow

A lone kayak appeared on the dock.   The lake frozen as winter set in.    A quiet surrounded the grounds.   The benches were covered with snow and a few birds lingered in the brush.   I have never visited the lake during the winter and on this snowy morning I was mesmerized by the beauty. …
