My Latest Work

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.

November Sunset

I went out to the point this evening to shoot the sunset with a new camera. It's a Sony Cyber-Shot RX1000 VII. It is small and very compact and I'm hoping it gives me the quality I'm looking for while being very easy to carry around. I'm pleased thus far.

Hard at Work - Street Photography at the Beach

While I was out at the point last evening I saw this photographer working hard for this couple's special moment. She was up and down, back and forth, using an off camera flash as the sun was setting in the sky. I've done that and it's a workout. I just had to capture the moment in my own way. Are you the photographer or are you one of the couple or do you know any of them? If so, I'll gladly give you a high resolution copy of this image.

Blue Skies, Clouds & the Overfalls

Holly and I walked down to the dock area of Lewes today to enjoy the sunshine after the rains. The clouds were just beautiful and they kept changing due to the wind. It has been some of the best fall weather that I can remember. Get out there and take advantage of it while we can.

Lewes Harbor Marina

It's Black Friday and it's an overcast, cloudy morning. No winds yet but it's to be blowing pretty hard this afternoon.

Good Morning Sunshine

Taken during my brisk morning walk with my dog Juni today. With just a touch of clouds and the blues still present in the sky. This is looking SSE from the Canal Bridge on Savannah Road in Lewes.

Run Down

A fresh coat of paint, a little roof repair and, who knows... This property sits along route 1 in Sussex County, DE and I've been wanting to photograph it along with the fruit stand that sits beside it for quite some time. Whenever I go by it just doesn't seem like the right light but, as you can see, I don't have much time to capture it the way that I want before it's gone. There are a good number of these old abandoned homes in southern Delaware and I'm sure that each one could tell some great stories.

Parking Around Back

This is a closeup of the signage on the front porch.

Fresh Fruits & Vegetables

This is the entire scene. Now I want to capture it in a snowstorm.

Lewes Harbor Marina

Taken during my morning walk with Juni. It was a balmy 58 degrees for our walk and it is December 17th. I can not remember such a warm late fall and I just wonder what winter will bring.

Keep Out

A strange scene that caught my eye at Port Mahon, DE.

Do as the Sign Says

A bit of positivity to brighten a cloudy day. Port Mahon, DE.

Beyond Sun

Many times you leave the beach as soon as the sun goes down but it really pays to stick around for a bit and you may be pleasantly surprised with what occurs "Beyond Sunset". This is another photograph from my shoot this evening at the Point in the Cape Henlopen State Park.

My Subject

Juni ends up getting numerous portraits taken when I'm trying out a new camera. This was taken from a distance with the camera all but sitting on the ground and I was using the full zoom potential of 200mm. It will never equal what I can do with my Nikon but I'm pleased with what it is capable of capturing with its small, compact size. Note: I am using the camera in all manual settings with the exception of the auto focus. I'm having fun figuring out how to get the most out of this camera.

The Gull & the Lightship

Taken during our afternoon walk along the docks. The dramatic clouds where the remnants of this mornings rains. They've since moved out of the area and we'll have clear skies this evening.

Thelma Dale & the Angry Sky

The rains were over but the clouds persisted for another hour or so before the clear skies prevailed.

Morning Light & Reflections

We are back to taking our walks through the canal front park where the Overfalls takes center stage. The morning the tide was full and the golden light was adding its warm glow.

Taking It All In

This is from a recent sunset photoshoot at the Cape Henlopen State Park. While shooting I saw this man walking further and further out the sandbar. With each few steps he would stop for a bit and look at the scene. He finally got to the point where the composition was just right. Thus here he is "Taking It All In".

Overfalls in Black & White

Another photograph from our afternoon walk along the docks of Lewes.

The Marina in B&W

This is another take on my photoshoot of the Lewes Harbor Marina.

Still Red, White & Blue

Even though it's in black & white. Port Mahon, DE.

Garden of Good and Evil

I took this photograph in the Park that surrounds the Zwaanendael Museum during a recent early morning walk.

To Let

And it's available... are you? Berlin, MD. iPhone Photography.

Purple Pitcher Plant

Taken from my kayak on Waples Pond. I had to reach out to friends to help in the identification of this plant.

A Time of Reflection

Blockhouse pond in a peaceful state. Taken during my morning walk with with my dog Juni.

On the Broadkill

For my therapy today I went to Milton and spent a few hours kayaking the Broadkill River. When my fishing line got snagged onto a stump and I went back into the back water area to retrieve it, this was the sight I saw. This tree had created it's own little island "On the Broadkill".

Getting in Close

Taken at the same time as when I was tucked back in retrieving my fishing line from its hold on a sunken stump. The plant is an Arrow Arum.

All Decked Out

For the Annual Joe Morris Flounder Tournament. This guy looks like he's ready for a good day on the water.
