Coe Hall Doors

Some of the architecture and doors of Coe Hall and the Camelia House in 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.

Insects and more at WPR

We drove two friends to Ward Pond Ridge, Westchester County, New York yesterday. It was too hot to walk much. We enjoyed a picnic by Cross River. There were butterflies, dragonflies, other insects, and one snake up a tree. It was resting after having just shed its skin.
