O for a Little Peace

O for a little peace.


The kind of peace that comes…

When you’ve put into harbor, dropped the anchor.


And just for a little while,

For better or for worse,

The day is done.

It’s Good to be Back

When I started this entry today I couldn’t believe it’s been over a month since I last blogged and I have really missed it!

When I get busy, I will often post my photos on my Facebook page, however these have not been making it to my blog!

So starting now I am going to try and blog first, then funnel everything over to Facebook.

In the meantime here is one of my very favorite images this fall.

I was out photographing at Ridgevale Beach, right around sunset.

And I kept hearing two Great Blue Herons “conversing” out in the marsh that’s near the beach.

Suddenly UP they both flew, one chasing the other.

Then, all went quiet.

After a time I spotted one of the Great Blues flying out over the water, against the pinkest sunset sky.

Here is that magical moment…


Autumn Wind in Their Wings

Mill Landing is one of my favorite destination spots when I’m out on one of my walkabouts with the camera.

I love nothing more than coming down the hill late on a fall afternoon, and looking back at Taylor Pond all decked out in golden yellow and russet orange.


I never know who I might see flying right toward me.


Or spot through the trees just upstream…


Scratching for some supper.


It’s a magical place;  the most magical in the fall.

For as the Canada geese wend their way up the Creek to Taylor Pond for the night I always pause…

And I listen —


For the sound of the wind in their wings.  ❤

Snowy Goes Solo at Mill Landing

A lone (GORGEOUS) snowy egret tonight, down at Mill Landing.

Going solo.


I am holding onto every moment we have with these birds, before they leave us here on the Cape in just a few short weeks.

I ADORE these amazing, whimsical, elegant, photogenic birds who visit our little Cape Cod sandspit every summer.

Does it show? 😉

‘Night Snowy!     ❤
