the road taken

the weekly photo challenge is “the road taken“.

roads

but I say: why take the roads, when you can sail instead?

photo challenge: local

here is my contribution for (last week’s) photo challenge “local“.

this week, share what “local” means to you, and show us where your heart is.

this view greets you at the start of our driveway to our new home. beautiful fall colors.  a warm welcome embrace.

the photo was from a couple years ago, but right about this time of year it is starting to look just like that again.

welcome home.

photo challenge: rare

this may be somewhat of a stretch, but the photo challenge is subject to interpretation… this week’s subject is “rare”.

I’ve chosen a highlight a photo I took of the sunrise over the ocean in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Nikon D70, f/6.3, 1/60 sec

most of my life has been spent in Michigan and I’ve seen hundreds of amazing sunsets on Lake Michigan – and granted you can see the sunrise over Lake Huron, I’m not sure it would compare to watching the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean.  so, for me, a sunrise over water is a pretty rare occasion.

how’s that for Jersey fresh, Baydog?

 

Sunfish sailing at the Dunedin Marina

saw this gorgeous photo of some Sunfish at Dunedin Marina in Florida on Instagram the other day: makes me want to schedule a vacation to Dunedin sometime soon!

(mine is not exactly macro photography, but rather just a random close encounter with a few baby robins in a nest tucked away in the grapevines at my parents’ house).
