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…

The Power of Water

My soul is calmed in and near water.   It is powerful.  It is soothing.  It is strong.   Water and its force cuts through rock.    The hikes I seek out are in and near water.    Nature is truly incredible.    Its a dance like none other. I found a trail tucked into the countryside…

On the backside

The water was calm and the sun was bright.   In the midst of winter finding a rare day when the winds are calm and the temperatures reasonable.    The draw of water attracts many, but in the quiet of February few were near. I am stepping into a new direction and road trips and water…

Wanderpup @ the beach!

Here’s a dog who thinks she is a person.   There is never a day that you can get out of the house without her running to the door. I can remember my kids always wanting to go for a ride ~ well my kids are grown and gone, Maggie now races me to the door!…

Avalon in February

Life is full of road trips and the winds took me a beach in New Jersey.   The sky was clear and the winds calm for this time of year. The area is usually full of hustle and bustle in season but this day it was empty.   The temperature was just a bit too cold for…

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…

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,…
