Daybreak

Here's some early shots from the last week or so.  I don't know w hat got into me. Adams pond and the whole world lit up pink the other day, it was so peaceful and fresh.  I could smell the apples from the orchard nearby, too. and less than an hour later it looked like... Continue Reading →

The Birth and Death of a Day

My eyes aren't always turned downwards, finding tiny details to show to the rest of the world.  No, sometimes I pretend I'm a landscape photographer.  Here are a sunrise at the coast and a sunset at a lake.  Unfortunately there were no clouds in the sky for the sunrise, but when I saw the clouds...
