In the wake of the ferry...This ferry is leaving the river and is off for Fire Island. The lighting is from the setting sun. The seagulls are chasing the ferry for some fish that will swim through the wake. In the distance, you can see homes on Fire Island. Click on the photo to enlarge and see more detail. This was taken with the Nikon D200 which is an amazing camera!

I don't usually like to post photos of people in the family but my sister is the greatest and I think she gets more beautiful as she gets older...inside and out!
I saw her this week and she is always upbeat, energetic and happy.
She makes everyone around her feel special!
Thanks Sis for being such a wonderful person!!

It was another spectacular sunset.
The sky gets so red-orange-yellow. The water picks up the spectacular colors.
A passing boat adds interest....
Who is that? Where are they going? Did they come out to watch the sun set too?
Maybe they are going home.....

What could be more interesting while relaxing in the backyard?
Each time the parents come into the tree to feed the babies, they chirp like crazy, and stop when the parents leave.
In only a few days they are grown.
It all happens so fast. Life is like that, isn't it.
Just one rose in this bouqet. I think I appreciated it more because of that.
The other flowers were equally as beautiful. Actually they were more colorful, but there was something special about the rose.
People often ask, "What do you want your photography to show?"
I think I want to catch the moment...to catch the beauty that I see at a single second.
It is more difficult that I ever realized. I have so much to learn.
My memory will remember the beauty. The photograph will just help me remember.

This pond is in my neighborhood. It looks different in the four seasons and at different times of day and weather conditions. This photo was taken last night, June 16, 2006.
The sun was setting and the wind had died down.
Click on the photo to see more details.
You can see the other houses and vehicles on the street but from this angle, it could be upstate New York or some foreign country.
No, it is Long Island!

Swim nets are in place for summer. Why are they there? It is a supervised swim area. It keeps the children in one area and keeps out unwanted fish and/or jelly fish. There is a life guard on duty during the day. Like most town beaches, it if for residents only. Sorry!
In the distance you can see Fire Island. The buildings are in Water Island and Davis Park.
I wonder if the nets keep the fish safe from the children?

This is one of the first shots taken with my Nikon D200. This was a very exciting week...a new boat AND a new camera.
The camera is my birthday gift. The new boat was a trade-in on the 28' Wellcraft. It was time to scale down and get a comfortable and sea-worthy Parker.
(See photo below.)
New toys are always fun, regardless of age. I could NOT have done this 20 years ago with little children and all the responsibilities that go with that stage of life.
By the way, Calla Lilies are my favorite flower.
Summer is my favorite time of year and my birthday begins the summer

A 25' Parker, a Yamaha 250 4 stroke engine. And the summer is all before us.
We traded this for our 28' cabin crusier that we were using less and less each year. We decided that we enjoy a smaller boat for the ease of using it to take over to the beach and for some fishing in the Great South Bay.
I think we're going to like this boat. More photos will follow in the next few days.
The canal is actually pretty shallow here. Brown's River was dregdged last fall, but not into the narrower canals. Those big boats do have a problem.
The Great South Bay is relatively shallow. Charts are definitely needed, even for boats that draw just 24 inches. It helps to know the bay.

This photo is from LAST weekend....the beautiful weather began the summer beach season with sunshine and very pleasant weather. This weekend is rainy and a good day to stay in and get some household chores done. I won't be inside once the sun comes out, that's for sure! Hope you all have a great weekend, whatever you have planned!

This is part of the National Seashore and there is ferry service from Patchoque.
In this building, there is an educational nature center and don't forget the walk over the dunes to see and swim in the ocean!
It's a great family beach and there are boat slips for boaters, for day visits or over-night!
There are walking trails, barbeque grills and camping possibilities.
Find out more here...and make a visit this summer!
