View From A Kayak

Sunday, September 19th, 2010:

It was a beautiful late summer day in New Jersey!
We took the kayaks out in the lake.
It was my first time kayaking and I actually loved it! I can't wait to go again...
Beautiful scenery, the trees are just starting to meet Autumn.
The leaves were beginning to change color and some were starting to fall.
Kayaking is quite a good workout, for mind, body and camera!
I stored my camera in a plastic water proof box while I wasn't taking pictures so it didn't get wet.
Good thing too, because every now and then I got going so fast the water started splashing!
It was a great day :)

Fall is in the air!

I love those first days of early September when you start to notice the crisp Fall air coming in! These past few days have been like that and have inspired me to get to work on some fall photos for my Etsy shop. I've just put this photo up for sale and I offer it 8x8 on Metallic paper. I've used the vintage "through the viewfinder" (ttv) effect on this one. I love the oak leaves on the ground with the one maple leaf sticking out, it reminds my of my favorite walking path in the woods. I hope you will enjoy it too!

Walking along the beach one day, we came across the drift doll. Like a piece of old wood, she lay on the sand by the shore, wet and deteriorated, the tide coming in and the tide going out. She had a beauty all of her own, in an eerie way.

The Antique Dolls

These ladies love to go for a ride in the car! In these pictures, they were preparing for an adventurous joyride. They were placed in the antique car once again by the old man, the tall one with the white hair and blue eyes, that's always fussing with the old cars. They don't know why they were chosen for today's ride, the old man has dozens of dolls, but here they were, all set and ready to go. The dolls always play along with what the old man wants. They have no choice...

Bird in a Tie Dye Sunset Sky

This just in.... and listed at Etsy for sale in my shop!! I've offered it on a 4x6 post card print. I've also ordered various sizes on Kodak Professional Supra Endura VC Digital Paper and Endura Metallic papers which I'll be listing in my shop when they come in.

This bird was just making a turn as I took his photograph. The sunset was completely awesome and turned all of the colors of the rainbow! I had to name this picture tie dye because it reminded me so much of when I used to make tie-dye tshirts and sell them in a little surf shop at the shore.

This photograph was taken on the Eve of Hurricane Earl at Belmar, New Jersey USA with a Sony A350 DSLR camera.

Friendship and Sunsets

Tonight's sunset was beautiful and in more ways than one. I was fortunate to spend some time with one of the best friends a girl could ask for.
All friends are special, but some friendships only get better over the years. They stick with you, through the hard times and the fun times.
As the sun dropped below the horizon, the sky and clouds lit up all kinds of pretty colors.
The wind was quite strong, probably leftover from Hurricane Earl.
We're lucky to have the beauty of nature to light up the sky with a nice sunset at night and we're lucky to have special friends to light up your life when you need it :) Thanks, Becky!

Hurricane Earl visits the Jersey Shore

I went down to the beach this afternoon just as the tide was coming in. Hurricane Earl was a Category 1 hurricane and was off the coast of New Jersey. I took these pictures in Belmar, New Jersey, near the Shark River Inlet.

The surf was rough and the wind was blowing the wet, salty air around. The waves were crashing and whitecaps were forming. People had come down to the shore from all over just to see the storm's effect on the beach.

These pictures just don't do it justice. The whole atmosphere was awesome. The people, the birds, the waves and water, it was just awesome!

No swimming flags were posted to prevent people from going in the water. That didn't stop everybody, or the birds.
It isn't often that the waves are this high at the beach in Belmar. I'm glad the storm was so far offshore!

Earl At the Shore

It's Labor Day weekend at the New Jersey Shore and along comes Earl! The good news is he's supposed to be out of here in time to still have a sunny weekend!

The National Weather Service issued a Tropical Storm Warning this afternoon. The hurricane is supposed to make it to this area of New Jersey by noontime Friday. It's expected to be sunny and clear by Saturday!

The sunset was beautiful tonight! The rough surf and the colorful sky really made my day!

"It is better to meet danger than to wait for it. He that is on a lee shore, and foresees a hurricane, stands out to sea and encounters a storm to avoid a shipwreck." Charles Caleb Colton

The Fall is Coming!

It's falling already. Here at the Jersey Shore, the leaves are beginning to turn and fall from the trees. I shot these photos today while on a walk through the woods down by the shores of the Shark River. It was a hot day for the first of September. It was beautiful!
