Forsythe Landscapes

After an unsuccessful attempt at house hunting in NJ on Friday. We went to E. B. Forsythe NWR in the afternoon. It was a rainy and very buggy. The little specks in the mud are all the shorebirds. Details in next post.

Cottage and Greenhouse

The charming little Pink Cottage, Greenhouses, and Camellia House at Planting Fields arboretum, Long Island, New York.

Planting Fields

It was a lovely day after a hard rain in the morning which helped cool things off. Marc, Paula and I had a leisurely walk through the grounds of Planting Fields Arboretum admiring the flowers and trees.

Cloudy Long Island Beaches

It rained on and off during the morning while we there at Gilgo, Captree, Jones and Robert Moses. I didn’t see many shorebirds. It was fun watching the terns fish and squabble. It’s been ages since I went to the shore and we enjoyed the trip and picnic.

The clouds add atmosphere. I love processing the RAW images in Lightroom to reveal what I saw that the camera could not capture. It’s like magic. The last two are by Marc.

E B Forsythe NWR

We visited E. B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Atlantic County, New Jersey, for a couple of hours before viewing a house for sale nearby.
