The Long Island Autumn colors are at their peak right now. Don't wait to take those photos as we have a short "peak" period and the leaves will soon be gone!

Autumn on Fire Island.

This photo was taken at Watch Hill on the Fire Island National Seashore.

Spent the day at Watch Hill and walked to Davis Park. What a glorious day! The weather could not have been more perfect.

Fire Island has its own colors in autumn. The greens are mostly gone but the brown and crimsons are there. I hope to post some more photos in the next few days. It may have been my last Fire Island visit until springtime!

on the hunt

Each day, mid-morning, this osprey comes to our canal. We often see fish breaking the surface of the water and the osprey knows he can get a quick meal here. He doesn't stay long, maybe about a half-hour, but he "sits" and waits perched on this branch, then swoops down, catches something, and flies away. Wonderful to see, and most times, I just want to watch and not reach for the camera. Some images are just better seen with two eyes!

Rainy Foggy Thursday

I woke up today to a misty, foggy morning. 
Something is so nice about sitting by the window and watching the fog roll by, drinking my morning coffee.........
