Seminole Canyon State Park, Texas

Our 4 night stay at Seminole Canyon State Park near Comstock, TX was a spur of the moment decision. Sometimes that proves to be the best way to travel! My idea was to take two days/one night to travel to a new location from… Continue Reading “Seminole Canyon State Park, Texas”

November Edisto Beach Trip III

My last full day on Edisto Beach was a busy one indeed. I embarked on my now regular sunrise walk noticing the very subdued colors this morning. There was a thick cloud cover as I started out but eventually the sun broke through the… Continue Reading “November Edisto Beach Trip III”

October Photo of the Day 10.28.21

Since I’ve been remiss in posting a photo a day since arriving home, I’m posting 3 photographs today! It’s been a busy time this past week weeding and cutting back my perennial beds, unpacking the Airstream and winterizing it temporarily, and cleaning the house.… Continue Reading “October Photo of the Day 10.28.21”

I went forth yesterday with my macro/portrait 105mm lens instead of my wide-angle zoom lens. Using that… Continue Reading “October Photo of the Day 10.15.21”

My season here in Acadia is fast coming to a close. Oh how I’ll miss the sunrises and sunsets across the ocean and sky, the dramatic coastline, the deeply shaded forests and the rocky, exposed summits of this beautiful island! 🙂

My favorite place to view fall color in Acadia is the summit of Connor’s Nubble. Shhhhhh……don’t tell anyone! It is a little out of the way for most people and, therefore, a nice spot for some solitude! I was all alone for at least… Continue Reading “October Photo of the Day 10.13.21”

October Photo of the Day 10.8.21

I drove over to the Ocean Path for sunrise this morning. Parking in the Gorham Mountain Trailhead parking lot, I walked a short distance to a perfect overlook. To my south was Otter Cliffs and, to my north, the Great Head peninsula jutted out… Continue Reading “October Photo of the Day 10.8.21”
