End of an Ice Age
On a rainy summer afternoon passing through the Talkeetna Mountains along the Matanuska River, Alaska, we arrived at the entry way to the Matanuska Glacier only to find the roads leading closer to it had been washed out and unpassable. Determined to capture a glimse of the ice I could feel in the summer breeze from a mile away, I ventured in the rain to find a clearing, and within a few minutes of arriving at this spot, the rain cleared over head and settled directly over the glacier for this view. And as I watched the rain rinse the glacier of its grand form and definition, it occurred to me that I was witnessing right there and then, the dimise of an Ice Age.
Milky Way Silo
Once upon a time, there was a farm on this spot. The farming family and their livestock must have seen this view of the Milky Way a thousand times, but now all that remains is this lone silo standing like a monument to the farm and the people it served under this incredible night sky.
County Cottage Life... summertime at the peaceful East Lake Shores of Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada
Clam Pass Beach Pelican Watch.5
Ruling the Roost - the last shot I could take this day before the sunset disappeared is this one of a lone pelican standing watch over the flock. . . so commanding.
Santa Monica Pier Sunset
California is never better looking than as the sun dips behind the horizon and the city lights begin to appear.
Bicycle at the Boathouse
Bicycle at the boat house was taken during the final sunset of Spring 2020; a Spring no one in the world will soon forget. And thanks to a child who left their bicycle on this pathway, I found a positive forecast for the first day of summer... signs of life! I’ve taken many photos of this boat house, but this is my new fav by far.
Fort Myers Sunset
I was honoured to have this photo was featured by Fort Myers Lifestyle Magazine to celebrate Earth Day 2020 while promoting doing our part by remaining in isolation during the COVID-19 Pandemic. https://www.instagram.com/p/B_SSboSjAB5/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
Moon Over the Lifeguard Station
Full moon rising over the Leuty Lifeguard Station, one of Toronto’s most iconic landmarks since 1920. This photo of "the Station" was taken not long after Toronto's Beach Residents celebrated its 100th year anniversary with a plaque commemorating the milestone, as well as safeguarding it as an official historic treasure. Lifeguards based here are credited with saving more than 6,000 lives, and it continues its service still today. In fact, two former lifeguards have been friends of mine and of my family for many years, one of whom raised the funds needed to save and restore the old Leuty, and the other who has recently purchased a copy of this print.
Blue Moon Over Famview
As the second full moon of October rose in the sky above our Prince Edward County cottage farmview, the sun was just setting behind me to create this magical glow on the autumn trees. It felt like nature's version of street lights turning on to signal our time to go home for dinner.
Blue Moon Silo
On this rare occasion of a second full moon appearing in the same calendar month, and here on Halloween, no less, I had to stake my claim or it with the enchanted old silo on our cottage resort in Prince Edward County.
Sunflower Sunset - Prince Edward County
End-of-summer sunset on a sunflower field at Cherry Valley in Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada. While driving through the county on our way home from a last summer-stay at the cottage, my wife wanted to stop for one last ice cream from the local roadside creamery. Pulling into the front of the shop, I noticed a trio of local young teens playfully galloping down the side of the shop and into the vast sunflower field where I had typically only seen corn stalks planted in previous years. The sun was just about setting, so I grabbed my camera from the back of the car and ran down to the field along the path the kids had followed to catch this shot just before the sun disappeared below the horizon. And if you look closely, you'll see the nest of teens huddled just off the beaten path. :D
Until Next Year Cottage Sunset
The cottage season is way too short here in Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada. We brave a long winter that sometimes creeps into spring, longing for the day we can return to our cherished summer cottage resort on East Lake to enjoy the pastoral scenes, the fresh air, and the rejuvenating times on the lake. As the season came to a close for another year, I took this one final photo of the sun setting on our beloved boathouse as a fond farewell until next year.
