Full Moon

I can't say the latest supermoon looked any larger to my eye than normal, but it sure was beautiful.

Saxonburg Christmas Parade

Friday night we went up to Saxonburg to eat Thanksgiving leftovers with the family.  After, we walked down to Main Street for the Christmas parade.  It was a small town event, just like I remembered from childhood, except that it was after dark!  The band's instruments were glowing.  The dance team had lit Christmas wreaths as props.  Every float, bus and fire truck was decked out with lights.  It was a beautiful way to kick off our holiday season.

New Postcard Sets

I've been putting together some new postcard sets for the Wings and Wildlife Art Show this weekend at the National Aviary here in Pittsburgh.  This one is called "Western Animals" and features five of my favorite prints from my time living out in Wyoming.  They are available for $5 at the show or in my shop.

This set is "Pennsylvania Woodlands" and features five of my favorite photos from the state I now call home.  You can find these at the art show or in my shop.

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!  My nephew is joining us this year, hence the four jack-o-lanterns.  Can you guess which mine?

Isle of Palms Sunrise

I got up three mornings in a row to shoot the sunrise when I stayed at the Isle of Palms in June.  Each time was a little different.  This was my favorite shot that included the beach houses that line the shore.

I just added this as a print in my shop.  Find it here.

Moana Character Portrait

I've been taking portraits of my daughter in her favorite costumes.  Here, she is being Moana, and we took it this summer on the Isle of Palms.  Bless her heart, she got up to see the sun rise with her Grammy and me at 5:30 in the morning.  She walked all the way down to the pier, running at times toward the rising sun, and alternately looking for seashells.  Then she tolerated about 15 minutes of this portrait session before she called it.  I needed a nap later that day but she never did!

I love this one from a different day, but even at 8 a.m. the light is so inferior.

Milky Way, Reworked

I liked my Milky Way shot that I took up in the mountains in Wyoming, but I thought it could be better so I reworked it a bit.
