Our Daily Bread

My brother bought an old farmhouse on 60 acres in rural Virginia last year. They finally sold their house in suburbia and are now making their “new” old house a home. Last year the fields around the house were planted in wheat in the spring. Jenny and I stopped by one evening just when the sun was laying low on the horizon, casting a golden glow over the wheat field. I snapped several shots, but this one captured the color and texture that made me smile.

I was standing on the dock with my Nikon when this Osprey, with its 9-foot wingspan, glided right above me so close I could see the detail of its fanned tail feathers.

Twilight Swim


Twilight Swim

A lone duck silently gliding across Broad Creek one evening caught my eye as I was relaxing on the bridge of my boat with a glass of wine. I reached for my Nikon and captured the image of this waterfowl isolated by the expanse of blue water that held it.
