You Can Get there from here… Griswold Point

I had a fantastic last couple of weeks…

Including an amazing Mother’s Day where we got to spend a majority of the day as a family doing exactly what I had hoped we could do… Walking on a local beach at ULTRA low tide with my camera in hand! Which resulted in some shots I am very happy with and very sentimental towards!

Today’s Photo101 Challenge was a pop of color…. Recently while driving the backroads of Vermont near our new vacation home my eye was IMMEDIATELY struck by this through the windshield! My imagination went into full gear. Who could live or work in such a visually striking place??? Obviously an artist!! Better yet, a potter and glass blower!!!

Colorful and Wonderful, joyful!


Today’s Photo101 prompt was Warmth…. Fall may be a time when the air is cooler and the days are shorter, the light shortening but I feel like the warmth that shines through is evident. In the colors of the changing leaves, the sunrises and sunsets.

Photography Bucket List

I feel like the term Bucket List is a bit overused these days but I am not sure what else to call it. Wishlist? Sounds too gifty. Capture list? Sounds to “Big Game Hunter”. So, if anyone can come up with a creative name for a Photography “Bucket” List I would love to hear it…

Here’s a few things I would like to have had the pleasure of viewing “through the lens” (hmmm, maybe I just found the name of my list). Thoughts?

The List:

– The White Cliffs of Dover
– The Grand Canyon
– Arches National Park
– Old Faithful
– A Lava Flow
– a Fly In/Out Migration of birds
– a Hot Air balloon festival
– Inis Mohr (Ireland)
– the rest of ireland
– Yosemite
-OMG…. speaking of Waterfalls (because who doesn’t want to photograph them?) FAROE ISLANDS!

I look at this list and realize it is all totally obtainable… Dream it and make it Happen right?

I recently visited the Salt Flats in Bonneville, so I can cross that one off!
