Lakeside

26Jul19

Mountain lakes have a special place in my heart. I’ve heard that ‘water’ is one of the most photographed subjects. When you think about all the ocean, lake, pond, river, stream and waterfall subjects it is probably so. But lakeside is by far my favorite … a place I like to be, and a place […]


Many landscape photographers love reflections and I am one among them. This fall I visited a nearby lake on four different mornings, hoping to capture the scene with the perfect sky. It is a popular spot this time of year with other photographers from near and far. The surrounding slopes are filled with beautiful aspen […]


A recent two-night camping trip with my husband, Brent took us northeast from home. We traveled through four mountain passes and breathtaking Colorado scenery. We stopped at Twin Lakes in Lake County on our second morning, and later decided to camp there. They are some of the prettiest lakes I have ever seen and I […]


Water’s Draw

20Jun17

It was always my dream to live on a mountain lake but as it turns out I am perfectly happy to have some nearby. “I’d rather live on a mountain lake than along the ocean,” I’d say. For me lakes are more relaxing than the sometimes harsh and exposed conditions of the seashore. I do […]


On a recent outing the following lakeside location screamed ‘postcard’ to me. I couldn’t resist the scene at the risk of being ‘cliché’. The low sun lit up the shoreline and peak in a beautiful display of warm, golden light before disappearing behind the opposing ridge, making a wonderful end to the day.


I suppose it is just another number but this post is my 200th and I felt I should make note of it! I started blogging in January 2009 as a way to display my photographs and express my thoughts about photography. Acting as a photo journal; I can scroll through and see where I’ve been, […]


Water Subjects – Part II As pointed out in a comment to my previous post, ‘water’ is the number one, most photographed subject … as a main subject, or component of a composition. I have been thinking a lot about this since my last post. Water not only has an important and interesting human relationship […]


I’ve always considered myself somewhat of an eclectic photographer. When it comes to subject matter, I like all sorts. No matter how far my eye wanders however, it always returns to my first love, landscape photography. I’m thankful to have a variety of locations close to home to explore and satisfy my cravings. The Pinelands […]


Frozen Fun

08Feb12

Catskill Winter Photographers Weekend I Along with the company of 15 participants in last weekend’s photo tour we found no snow … but the ice was nice! I had fun looking for and photographing some of the frozen subjects we found along our way. Bastion Falls (which is below Kaaterskill Falls) looks different every time […]


One of my favorite shoots on our Canaan Valley trip was to a small lake just in time to capture morning’s first light. The sunlight, autumn foliage and reflection came together to create a stunning scene. I couldn’t stop shooting! Aside from the big picture there were many abstracts available in the still reflection. I […]
