I love snow. Especially when its fresh. There is a quiet that falls over the world when it snows. People stay in, the critters hide away, and once it all settles everything is clean and new. Snow has a magic all its own. Love these images? Stay in touch, like me on Facebook here. To purchase these images and more, visit my Etsy shop here.
A week ago, I sat at my computer complaining about the rain, the wind, the cold. Today I’m snuggled in with a hot cup of tea, watching the snow pile up outside my window. Its hard to believe the “official” start of Spring is only 24 days away. Pretty soon we’ll be seeing blooms in place of berries…
For now, lets embrace the last days of Winter, the fresh, quiet solitude of a snow day, and a warm cup of cocoa. Days like today, leave me wishing for Winter all year long.
Just have to have some of these berries for yourself? Purchase these prints and more online at my Etsy shop! Visit here.
No shoes, no shirt, no problem…
Yesterday was dreary, miserable and frigid. It was as if winter was trying to remind us that its not quite through with us yet. All those chilly drafts wafting through the studio had me wishing for warmer climates, salty air, a sunny beach and clear blue water.
Almost 70 miles West of Key West hidden among one of the largest Maritime preserves in the world, is just the beach I’m dreaming of. Dry Tortugas National Park, is arguably one of the most remote and most beautiful parks in the US. Accessibly only by boat or seaplane, just getting to the park is an adventure.
While a day on the island is satisfying, spend a few nights and you’ll never want to leave. Camping on the island is limited and primitive, but offers its own set of rewards. At the end of each day, when the boats board up, and the seaplanes depart intrepid travelers have a rare and unique opportunity, a National Park all to themselves. Without the interference of artificial light, stars over the water shine bright, and the ocean glows with the life light of bioluminescence. Its a once in a lifetime experience you will want to repeat time and time again.
The “Dry” Tortugas are aptly named for their lack of fresh water. Travelers who plan on spending a night are responsible for their own supplies of potable water and any other supplies they may need. Know before you go…get all the details you need by visiting the park’s website here.

Today is Groundhog Day, and according to the predictions of one plucky Pennsylvanian marmot it looks like those of us here in the U.S. are in store for 6 more long weeks of winter. Admittedly winter holds less charms for me than the warm days of summer, but that’s not to say that it doesn’t have its merits. A few shots to share from coastal walks in winter, days well spent. Six more weeks of winter? It might not be all that bad.
