It’s the end of the work day for this trawler and her crew, but the gulls are working hard looking for food. Barnegat Inlet is located at the north end of Long Beach Island, NJ, and is a busy channel for both working and pleasure craft.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.
