In the North


Row Row Row Your Boat

Taken at the docks of Ogunquit, Maine. A beautiful little town. This photograph was featured in the Rehoboth Writers Guild. Art in the Am series in June 2019.

Looking out to Sea

Taken at an art shop on the docks in Camden, Maine. A beautiful little seaport town.

Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse

Located within Acadia National Park in the southwest portion of Mount Desert Island, Maine, marking the entrance to Bass Harbor and Blue Hill Bay.

Wells Beach Maine

Wells Beach is one of our favorite stops along the coast of Maine. The beach is rocky and during high tide, the water is banging up against the breakwalls that protect the town.

Portland Head Light

I took this photograph as we were heading into the Portland Harbor on a cruise ship. It was early in the morning and the sun had risen just a bit before.

Mt. Gretna PA - July 2021


Holly and I took a road trip this past weekend to see our son and his husband. Part of our trip took us to Mt. Gretna where we hiked around the streets and pathways to enjoy the cottages. This was one of my favorites.

Colors of Mt Gretna

This is another example of the cottages of Mt Gretna. Full of color, a large porch, and wooded surroundings.

The Tabernacle

I took this photograph while lying on my back in the tabernacle of Mt Gretna. It was very dark in under the roof covering so I had to crank my ISO to 8063 so that I could capture the image without a tripod. The exposure was 1/10 of a second which is rather slow for a handheld image so I did my best to rest my camera on the brim of my hat. I really enjoy all of the structural elements that were put in place to create this open air building. When looking back at the image I realized that they need to clean the center light fixture. Should I call and tell them?

It's All About the Porch

This is one of the more grand homes of Mt Gretna and it's a classic example of what it means to have a big, open air porch with plenty of space to sit with family and friends. This home is also a great example of balance in architectural design. The left side matches the right side in almost every way.

Forest Floor

This was taken on my afternoon hike with Juni and it is in a small wooded area called Bummies Woods (Baumgartner's Woods) in York, Pennsylvania. We were always told to stay out of here when we were children but, as a child, I couldn't understand why. It's quite a gem of a woods and I believe it is now part of the Penn State York Campus.
