    Footprints in the Sand

    This vintage photograph features the sandy shores and waves of Lake Superior, including Little Presque Isle, as seen north of Marquette in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Visiting this spot, you’ll likely have the beach to yourself, and, if surface temperatures are suitable in summer, the island can be explored by wading waist-deep through water.

  • Water Watches Winter

    Water Watches Winter

    Poetry for Kids (channeling my inner Dr. Suess) 🤪

    The seasonal cold has halted play, and most of the water has gone away. Frozen ’til another day…perhaps, until the month of May. All of the water, that is to say, except a sphere of water so pure, which Old Man Winter failed to sway. So, it remains today, having its way and planning to stay – just one droplet, but that’s okay.

  • Poem in Response

    Poem in Response

    After reading “Golden Pink Gone“, written by the talented and lovely Arizonian poetess, Michele Lee Sefton – wherein her happiness stems from an admiration of beauty and peacefulness (rather than the frivolous), sharing photographs of local sights – I was inspired to write this poem…

    The time you take to share
    With steady gait, to reminisce
    A beauty that’s alive
    Your town, in hues of golden bliss

  • Rocky Landscape

    Water ripples on Richland Creek amidst a rocky gorge embankment, located along the Laurel-Snow Trail in Dayton, Tennessee. It’s one of my favorite places to hike, featuring a diverse array of waterfalls, creekside beauty and tall cliffs.

  • Gems of Nature

    Gems of Nature

    Shallow water laps up onto shore, then recedes back into the lake. Eventually, small common stones become smooth. Seen here in a few inches of water along the coast of Lake Superior, this photograph might be the perfect accent piece you’ve been looking for. To see prints and other items available featuring my photography, you can visit these shops…

    Haiku

    Water with wrinkles
    Natural beauty reflects
    Gems tumbled in time
