    The San Bernardino Straits

    In my opinion there is no more beautiful a place as the San Bernardino Straits. This is the water way that carries mariners from the vast Pacific Ocean into the South China Sea. The trip from the West Coast of California across the expanse of the Pacific Ocean takes weeks to...

    Sand And Snow...

    II was at the beach on the coast of Maine in January. Not another soul around, just sun and wind and huge expanse of beach at low tide. In a somewhat sheltered spot where the receding tide had textured the sand, wind had blown snow from a pre-dawn squall into the crevices. The...

    Winter's Silence-

    I visited one of my favorite spots in nature yesterday, hoping to get some good photos of what this rocky gorge looks like in the silence of mid-winter. I wasn't disappointed, but I have come to realize that no matter how well I represent the scene with a photo -or try to...

    A Meteoric Encounter-

    Several years ago, I lived in a small cabin in the woods in central Vermont. Late one crystal clear night, I was returning home from visiting friends, but the driveway up through the field that leads to the cabin had become the consistency of chocolate mousse, thanks to the...

    Nature = Bliss For Me

    I have always enjoyed the simplicity and beauty among nature. When I walk along the nature trail near my house I sit on a park bench in front of the creek and listen. "The bubbling and soft spoken babbles of the creek near me flowing with the streams of life. The little fish...

    This Is Where God Speaks To Me...

    There is a dense, nearly 60 acre stand of red pines on the land owned by my brother in central Vermont, planted as part of a CCC project back in the 50's. A local old-timer tells tales of haying the field that is now home to this plot of trees. Now perhaps 80 feet tall, I always...
