Otter Point State Park, OR

If you want secluded beaches and vast open areas to wander on the coast Oregon has it. This photograph was taken last summer on a beautiful July morning. Like nearly all beaches we visited there was no one else there.

Philadelphia Freedom (and lines)

A day trip to Philadelphia had me seeing symmetry and patterns almost everywhere, from the Reading Terminal Market to Macy’s in the John Wanamaker Building to City Hall.

Hunting Frost

The day after Christmas started in dense fog here at the coast with the thermometer reading 31 degrees. I went out to a marsh area just after first light to hunt for frost. Surprisingly there wasn’t much to be found. Here are the best of the morning.

Jim Thorpe Christmas

Weekend getaway to Jim Thorpe PA to enjoy a storybook like Christmas village. No snow here but light rain lit up holiday lights reflected on the streets and storefronts are beautifully decorated for the season. It’s beautiful here.

Winter Enters

Following yesterday’s 65 degree temperatures, snow blanketed coastal Delaware this morning. Fall in the Mid-Atlantic is full of variety, to say the least.

Fall At Trap Pond

Trap Pond

Fall has fallen at Trap Pond where Bald Cypress trees rule the canopy. It was a beautiful morning there today with clear skies, air temperature below freezing, mist on the water and trees in beautiful autumn foliage. A perfect morning.

Myrtle Beach Sunrise

I attended the American Shore and Beach Preservation Association annual conference in Myrtle Beach, SC this past week. Sunrise over the ocean was pretty spectacular Thursday morning. This is a pano stitch made from 6 images taken on my Nikon D850 on my hotel room balcony.

Heceta Head Lighthouse

The Heceta Head Lighthouse, north of the town of Florence Oregon, is a working lighthouse AND a bed & breakfast. Built around 1874 this lighthouse’ name is either pronounced Ha-See-Ta or HECK-ah-Ta according to their website. There is a great pull off on Rte. 101 just south of the lighthouse for photography and enjoying the view in case you find yourself out there.
