October is so beautiful in my home state of New York. This is a country road in my hometown which I photographed in early October. The leaves of the Sugar Maple (Acer saccharum) trees are especially vibrant. As the season continues to unfold, the leaves will turn from yellow to bright orange and red.

I was able to photograph a pink Dahlia over the weekend. The Dahlia is native to Mexico, and there are 42 species of this beautiful perennial plant. This is the first of the Dahlia photos I have edited. I love the layers of petals and the soft, blush pink color.

I photographed these Scottish Highland cattle on an April day in Vermont. These are little ones – look at that fur! Their thick coats allow them to say warm in the cold Vermont temperatures.

I photographed this abandoned white barn and silo in the Southern Tier of New York state. It was a late spring day, and the bright blue sky was dotted with fluffy white clouds. I layered the image with faint textures and script.

This bucolic scene features a herd of grazing sheep on a late summer day in Central New York State. Yellow and purple flowers in soft focus line the foreground, while trees, a hill, and the gray, cloud-lined sky make up the background.

Maple Seed on Emerald and Jade

I took a hike on a weekend in mid-September with my macro lens and captured this single maple seed. The seed is beige and fresh green, and the background is shades of emerald, aqua, and jade green.

Using a macro lens encourages you to slow down and really look around every step of the way. If you don’t, you can miss so much beauty in the tiny details of the natural world.

Woolly Bear

 

Prints available in my Etsy shop here.

I had hoped to capture some late summer blossoms on a hike last evening, but the sun had already set beneath the tree line. I was excited when I spotted this guy, my first woolly bear caterpillar of the season. I shot it with my macro lens open wide, so the head of the caterpillar (at the bottom) is in sharp focus, while the rest of the body and the goldenrod are in softer focus. I finished it in muted tones reminiscent of a vintage photo from the 70s or 80s.

I photographed this seascape at Two Mile Hollow Beach in East Hampton, Long Island in August 2018 while visiting dear friends there. We brought the dog to romp around and enjoyed the sunset.

Vintage Inspired Ferris Wheel in Hot Pink and Cream

I have always suffered from motion sickness, and it seems to get worse the older I get; I even have to watch from the ground as my family rides the Ferris wheel! The silver lining is that I have the opportunity to take photos of them…

This whimsical ferris wheel photo exudes a fun, summer carnival vibe in shades of bright pink and creamy ivory with some rainbow iridescence on the left side of the image.
