Osprey, Everglades National Park

Osprey in Everglades National Park, Florida, by Anne McKinnell

Every once in awhile I like to go through my archives to see what I missed. Sometimes it's just that I get too many of a particular type of photo at once, and so they don't all end up getting processed at the time. Like when I was in Florida, almost two years ago now, I had an abundance of bird photos. When I started digging through my archives I found some photos I made … [Read more...]

Old Buoys Club

Buoys, Newport, Oregon

I must have had textures on my mind as I strolled through the historic district of Newport, Oregon, this week. This collection of old buoys caught my attention. Please click the image to view a larger version. We have driven through Newport many times but never stopped because it is always so busy in the summer months. Being November this time it was much different … [Read more...]

On The Road Again

Monument Valley, Arizona

♬ Start spreading the news ... we're leaving today ♬ I always think of that song when embarking on a new adventure! I'm glad we're not going to New York though! To all my photo friends on the east coast our thoughts are with you as we watch what you are going through with the perfect storm out there. Now that the November rains have arrived here in BC it's time to … [Read more...]

A Quiet Afternoon in Daytona

Daytona Beach, Florida

Here is another image I dug out of my archives from my trip last year. This is Daytona Beach on a quiet but warm afternoon in December. Please click the image to view a larger version. I understand this place can be a total circus during the Daytona 500 or during spring break or at Christmas and probably New Years and a bunch of other occasions too. But when I was … [Read more...]

Tree Aflame

Driftwood Beach, Jekyll Island, Georgia

I got up in darkness, quickly dressed and gathered my equipment. I'm glad people who stay in RV parks are used to the sound of big trucks starting early in the morning for no one ever comments on my early departures. I drove to the beach and then walked as quickly as I could to the location I scouted out the day before when the sun was high in the sky, its harsh rays washing … [Read more...]

Fall in Virginia

Fall in Virginia

Picking out these unprocessed images from the many images I made on our trip around North America last year, I am reminded of so many places I said I would return to and know I will one day. One of those is the drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway that follows the Appalachian trail through Virgina and North Carolina. Whenever I am travelling I find myself much more … [Read more...]

Reflections of Fall

White Mountains National Forest, New Hampshire

White Mountains National Forest in New Hampshire is definitely on my list of places I want to return to. What they say about the fall colours in New England is true. It's like no other place. I made this image somewhere along the way at a pond whose name I don't remember. I do remember that it was very windy and I wasn't having much luck with my images of the trees. So … [Read more...]

Fall in New Hampshire

Fall in New Hampshire

About this time last year Ray and I were making our way south along the east coast of the United States where the changing colours of fall bathe the landscape in yellows, oranges and reds. The colours were especially intense in the area around the White Mountains in New Hampshire where I made this image, which was left unprocessed until now. Please click the image to … [Read more...]
