While touring the grounds of Lyndhurst the other day, I came across a Victorian cottage in a sea of golden light.  It was late afternoon  – or the so-called golden hour when the light has this wonderful golden glow.  The picture I saw in my head  was so characteristic of […]

Another day, another trip into the polar vortex.  At least we avoided the snow this time.  How cold is it?  Even my Siberian Huskies are not wanting to stay outside very long and this is supposed to be their kind of weather!  Jade and Tundra ran outside tonight, but they […]

Cardinal caught on camera…..

This is probably one of the last gasps of my winter photo collection.  I took it after it was “officially” spring, but it was cold like winter and we were expecting snow. We have been seeing a lot of Cardinals lately on TV. Of course those Cardinals are actually humans […]

Patriots Park in Winter – Blue Streams and Gray Skys – Tarrytown NY

Recently, I’ve been using the gray shades of winter to play with black and white photography and adding a dash of color.  As spring blossoms, I will probably return more and more to true color .  This is another such experiment…For the most part, the colors used  the color reflects […]
