’SDuring an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.

    wow! so much beauty! the colors are amazing ;)

  • Many Thanks Manon! I look forward to this time of year in New England… my favorite time for sunsets. Cloud cover has not been cooperating much lately but on Friday, the clouds, sun and sky came together for the nicest sunset I’ve seen along the river in a long while. ;-)

    Beautiful capture Sylvia. Now I know what that you like colours :-) I like reflections of the sky colour in the water. Regards.

  • Thank you Jan! And yes, you found me out… I adore color. Love this time of year in New England. When cloud cover cooperates, sunset casts such beautiful light on everything. On this day, clouds cooperated nicely and I got to this favorite bend in the river just in time for the sun to reflect everything off the water. With such naturally magic light, I just couldn’t contain it in my camera. ;-)
