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…

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…

Soft Sand

There is nothing but a simple fence that separates North Carolina from Virginia.    False Cape State Park is one of the only untouched pieces of land that touches the Atlantic Ocean. This stretch of land has rolling soft dunes, open spaces and a trail that runs six miles north to south. I prepared for…

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…

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…

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…
