Majestic

These past few years have been filled with self discovery; and with self discovery comes acknowledging what calms me, what inspires me and who is my authentic self.   Growing up I was a dancer and identified as such.   I never participated in skiing or any kind of organized sports.   But a dog was always apart…

Dance with nature

I have hiked this path many times and it calls to my soul.   Today was different, the snow fell yesterday and the sun was shining through the trees so off we went.   This was an adventure to say the least, tucked back in the woods the pathways were covered with snow and the deeper…

Fairies run free!

Clarity comes when you quiet the brain! Sitting high on the rocks deep within the woods, my heart dances and my brain, the to-do list of the day disappears.   The abunance of the nature that surrounds me fills me with peace.   Regrounding my soul is where I needed to be today!   This time in…

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…

Garden Party

I had the privileged to photograph a bridal shower in the rolling hills of Chester County.     Set in and among horse country.  The sun shining through the trees and added a glimmer of excitement to the air.           No detail was missed.   The tables all sat dressed in dusty blue…

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…

Contrast in the Trees

As a child I don’t remember any fascination with nature, trees or rocks.    As I child we were shipped outside on those summer days to “GO PLAY”.    A backyard filled with a swing set, a healthy dirt pile and open field for softball.  It felt like a chore to go outside in those…

30 Day Commitment

I am committed to posting on this photo blog for the next 30 days to share the abundance of pictures I have taken.   To inspire, to excite you and for you to see the amazing nature that surrounds us! The have been hiking 2-3 times a week and always with the camera.   Who has ever…

Sleeping Beauty

I was walking the beach on a beautiful Sunday morning in the hopes of catching pictures of sunrise when I stumbled upon what I initially thought was a dog.      This sleeping beauty was being protected by his watchman. His back to me, but this magnificent creature knew I was near   He was standing…

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…
