Codorus State Park

On a surprisingly cool summer evening I headed up to Codorus State Park in Pennsylvania to see what shots I could find. I ended up having to wait until the sun set to find anything interesting. But with the nearly full moon rising in the east, I found some interesting looks.

The Importance Of Hindsight

This piece is a continuation of yesterday’s trip to Shenandoah National Park. If you missed it you can read it here. In case you didn’t know, I love water. I am drawn to it so I love waterfalls. But here I decided to try to do something a bit different.

Brookside Gardens: Wings Of Fancy Exhibit

I led a very small group of great people to Brookside Gardens in Silver Spring, MD yesterday. It was just as great as I remembered it having not been there for a few years. Hundreds of loose butterflies in a glass conservatory just waiting to be photographed! I wore my bright orange shirt and at one point I had at least three big butterflies on me including the beautiful Blue Morpho.

Venus Over Neptune or I Left My Heart On The Beach

This is a continuation of the thoughts and themes from yesterday (here). I spoke about events in my travels that seem to be for my eyes only. I usually travel alone or with my collie mix so I try and let my pictures tell the tale of what I see and what I feel. But I find that I needed to turn to blogging in order to tell the whole story or the back story. This picture from Assateague Island is special to me, not because it is a great picture, but because of how I felt when I took it.

Hoodoo You Think You Are

What do you see when you look at your photography? Do you see yourself? I see parts of my own personality in my photography. I tend to be a loner, I have a small but tight circle of people around me. Normally I choose not to include people in my photography, not a fan of  street photography. I love grand landscapes devoid of people. I took this picture in Bryce Canyon at the Amphitheater. These spire structures are called hoodoo. Hoodoo are formed over great periods of time by weather, rain and wind specifically. The top layer of rock is harder than the bottom layers so it erodes slower. This leaves the signature capstone look.
