PFA Sunflower

Despite the heat I took loads of photographs at the Planting Fields Aroboretum. This is one of many (more to come). I feel it looks better on its own. I often like to desaturate green.

Koi Tales

When I photographed three Koi swimming in a small pond at the Planting Fields Arboretum yesterday I envisioned making this composite of swirling tails. This is four photographs rearranged. It is digital art.

Bayard Cutting Arboretum

My husband, Marc, and I went to Bayard Cutting Arboretum on Long Island, with two friends yesterday. It was a glorious day for a leisurely stroll and the grounds look lovely at this time of year. In the early evening, we stopped for a fabulous meal at the Jolly Fisherman’s Restaurant in Roslyn on the way back to New York City. It was a lovely day all round, thanks to our friends.

Seabirds at Nickerson

I spent a beautiful day at Nickerson Beach, Long Island, New York on June 17th 2015 with friends to look at seabirds. I took these with my 24-85 mm lens because my Nikon 80-400 mm is still being repaired.
