Hello everyone! I just got back from a short trip to Morgan County, West Virginia and I can’t wait to share some of the places I visited with you…
My first stop is “Cacapon State Park”
Cacapon (pronounced CaCApon) is a derivative of a Shawnee Indian word meaning “medicine waters”. These waters come to the surface approximately ten miles from Cacapon at the nearby Berkeley Springs State Park. My next stop!
I am talking about walls that talk art!
This time, I wanted to share with you, my recent visit to “Wynwood Walls”, in Miami, FL. Wynwood, is a funky neighborhood, an urban graffiti district. Walls and buildings are full of colors and designs that reflect the extraordinary talent and uniqueness of locals and well known street artists. Also, a great place for street photography!.
A “Heron” moment at the Pond Next Door yesterday..
Pine Glades is a beautiful 6,651-acre natural area that protects a sensitive pine forest and wetland habitat. It is also part of the Northeast Everglades Nature Area (NENA). Great spot for nature photography in Palm Beach County!
Florida sandhill cranes are commonly seen roaming along the pastures. Cool facts…All cranes “dance” with one another, bowing, jumping, running, wing flapping, and tossing sticks or grass. Though most commonly associated with courtship, cranes of all ages may dance in any season. Crane dancing is thought to strengthen the bond between pairs and may also reduce aggression between birds.

Last weekend, I went back to Wakodahatchee wetlands, for a little sunset adventure.
This time, my nieces Amanda and Ale were in town, so I invited them to come with me.
It was late afternoon and stormy. The birds were already perching on the trees and there were a group of black bellied ducks along the boardwalk that were truly performing for us. One of them even posed for a selfie!
The purpose of this visit was to introduce the kids not only to photography, but to nature and most importantly wildlife. My nieces loved it so the visit was successful!
