“Two, Gulf of Mexico morning horizons.”


The Gulf of Mexico has two horizons for me as seen from Galveston Texas sunrise December 2016, windy cold. Fort Myer Florida November 2015 sunset, lazily warm. Sunrise or sunset each has a perspective from either coastline as seen in these photos do not reveal the temperature differences.

“Perplexed, zing.”


It is early in the morning a half hour before the sunrises as I walk along a hiking trail to capture photos of mother nature, starting her day. This September morning, the weather is cold and crisp with the brightening sky glowing with streams of light from behind the mountains. My senses are heightened listening to the quiet wrestle of leaves above in the trees, with … Continue reading “Perplexed, zing.”

Stump


The daily word prompts ignite my imagination of times in my life. The word “stump” has me reflecting on the stump-grinder, I rented to remove two tree stumps from my front yard several years ago. After I returned the rented machine, I can honestly say, I should have paid someone because of my wrist, elbows, shoulders, and chest ached for several days. I felt like … Continue reading Stump

Radical Moose Encounter


What would be the radical experiences to capture morning photos of the sunrise at a place called Silver Lake at Brighton Utah, 8000 feet above sea level? I never thought the term wildlife and landscape photographer would describe me but after an encounter with a young bull moose. I can say it applies. As I stood with a jacket, cap, long pants, hiking boots and … Continue reading Radical Moose Encounter

“Pure”


  This morning photos near Corning NY was a wee bit chilly, or down right cold for those who are from Florida. The sun gleamed over the dark green forested mountain into the valley filled with morning mist and fog emanating from grasses and trees. There’s a calmness in the air only punctuated by the tweets of morning birds and the occasional sound of tires … Continue reading “Pure”

“Glass”


The word glass has many definitions around the world, yet, its basic form, glass is a non-crystalline solid with enormously other uses. For me, the word glass immediately brings to mind my attempts to photograph a sunrise or sunset reflecting on a body of water that is smooth as glass. Although I should use the word mirror, I chose glass, because of the smooth texture, … Continue reading “Glass”

“Sky”


  The sky above is also known and described as the heavens. The sky is filled with sights seen and unseen. The sky is the invisible atmosphere we breathe, although polluted in some places we use a mask to filter the sky’s atmosphere. Laying on your back in a green field of grass viewing the sky above filled with clouds. The cloud formations open and … Continue reading “Sky”

“The South”


  Many locations in the US south like the above morning sunrise photo taken in Tavares Fl with morning temperatures in the mid 70’s are considered warm temperate zones, but, mother nature can bring a chill to certain parts of the US South. With hurried excitement, I recently left Southwest Florida to begin my travel blogging nomadic lifestyle when mothers-natures weather decision of cooler temperatures … Continue reading “The South”

“State of Mind”


This week, let your inner world and the outside one converge in a photo. The photos layout of local birds enjoying a cold sunny morning of 47, degrees or 8 celsisu does not reveal my state of mind, which is I’m freezing. I know I should not complain, however, it is the last week of February, in Southwest Florida and soon the seasonal spring breakers … Continue reading “State of Mind”

“Live to Eat”


Some people “Eat to live” while others “Live to eat.” What about you? How far would you travel for the best meal of your life? I have traveled 937 miles, taking about fourteen hours, from my Northern VA home on the East coast to my Midwest home for the tastes of a great meal. I ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, along with water and … Continue reading “Live to Eat”

“The Artist Eye”


Is there a painting or sculpture you are drawn to? What does it say to you? Describe the experience. Every morning sunrise and evening sunset soothes my soul as I attempt to capture the moment with photography. Photographing natural landscapes including wildlife provides experiences that last a lifetime for my artistic eye. WordPress Daily Post Prompt Continue reading “The Artist Eye”

“Because the Night Time is the Right Time”


Are you a night owl or are you the early bird? What’s you most productive time of the day? When do you do your best work? Night time is my time to write and read, usually through the early morning hours. I excel creatively with my writings, and I have discovered my reading addiction excels between two and three in the morning, believing I just need … Continue reading “Because the Night Time is the Right Time”
