The summer flowers are struggling to hang on and the colours of fall are quietly taking over the landscape.

We started the evening in a field of Queen Anne’s lace but made out way her neighbour who was full of Goldenrod.

-The vibrant colours so suited these two beauties.

A Midsummer’s Eve

The air was heavy with the promise of rain.

The water gently lapped against the shore.

The perfume of wild flowers mingled with the saltiness of the sea.

Gone was the business of the day and just for a moment time stood still.

Some moments are so beautiful they hurt.

Thanks so much for your kind words Mich. They kindly humoured me and let me take a rare group shot of them altogether.

Leaving the Nest

This week one of my chicks will leave the nest for the first time.

Her leaving will create a gaping hole in my brood.

But while I am sad for me, I am so happy for her.

And can’t wait to hear about the new adventures and stories she will have to tell.

The new places she will visit and the new people she will meet.

And this is good.

The Narrows- My Outdoor Studio

I took a break from the other projects I have been working on this week and took some test shots in my new studio.

My outdoor studio.  The other one; the one that will have four walls and a roof is still in the beginning stages.  We now have a foundation and the walls are starting to take form, but it will be months before it will be ready for photography of any sort.

But just steps away is the prettiest stretch of river with a small fern covered island in the middle of it that I thought might work for taking photographs.   It is a shady stretch of river and has no spectacular sunrises or sunsets over it, but there are times when it feels magical.

The sort of place where wood nymphs and fairies live.

These two ladies obliged me and we spend the magic hour on the river as the sun set.

(Well, they were on the island and I was waste deep in water.)

These are a few of my favourites from our little shoot.

I  think I will like my new studio.
