Delfosse Wine Bottles


Delfosse Wine Bottles

On one of our many “wine weekend get-a ways”, Jenny and I visited Delfosse Vineyards in the Hickory Creek Valley on the Monticello Wine Trail. One of the more interesting photos made on that trip was this one that Jenny took with my Canon PowerShot point-and-shoot. She saw a case of empty, dusty wine bottles sitting in the tasting room and snapped this shot. Faber, Virginia. October 30, 2011.

Red Sky at Night


Red Sky at Night

Often times the best light comes “after” the sun dips below the horizon. The sun’s reflection off the clouds creates a soft, warm glow that is even more prominent over water. The silhouetted dock in the foreground gives perspective and helps lead the eye. Albermarle Sound, North Carolina. August 1, 2011.

Sunset over Albermarle Sound


Sunset over Albermarle Sound

One of the advantages of vacationing on the “sound-side” in the Outer Banks of North Carolina is seeing spectacular sunsets like this one. This was the view from our vacation rental last summer. Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. August 1, 2011.
