Color Explosion Sunset by Beth Sawickie

Color Explosion Sunset

Color Explosion Sunset by Beth Sawickie

It was a cold November day, just a bit before Thanksgiving.

The colorful leaf display of fall had come and gone.

Did I mention it was COLD ? Bone-chillin’ cold.

Bearing the low temps was worth it to get to see this awesome sunset!

I almost missed it though!  I had peaked out the window a bit earlier and saw some pink – nice… but I still didn’t think there was going to be a fabulous display.

Then a bit later I looked outside and – WOW! – everything was glowing pink/orange!

I grabbed my camera, jumped in the car and drove down the road to the bridge – and I caught it 🙂

It was so stunning that I didn’t even realize that I only had a light jacket on and thin pants – not my usual attire for a chilly sunset.

I hope you enjoy it too! (from the warmth of your home).

Signed prints of this stunning sunset are available HERE.

Sunset Stroll – March 18th, 2015

Just a few days before the “official” start of spring here in the Northern Hemisphere and Mother Nature was again reminding us that it ain’t spring yet!

There were gusty winds throughout the day with a little chill on the breeze.

But – wow – once that sun started setting, brrr.  It dipped to under 40.  Cue the red runny nose and frozen fingers.

Beth and Doug March 18th, 2015 - Whitesbog

We decided to go to Whitesbog Village for sunset (one of our favorite places).

Some of the dirt roads there are beat up!  Ruts galore.  Luckily, since everything was still frozen, it wasn’t a mushy mess.  And, we had our 4×4 Tracker with us.

As we got to the old bog area we saw Tundra Swans.  There were Ring Necked Ducks hanging out in the middle of one of the bogs.  All of ’em were enjoying the open water that was terribly hard to find only a few weeks ago.

We drove a bit further passed the first couple bogs and passed several Mallard Duck couples in the shallow areas.

Then the Red Winged Black Birds – we only started seeing one of ’em here and there a few weeks ago – well, now they’re really returning to the area.

So pretty and their song is nice too!

Here’s a pic that Doug got of one of the Red Winged Black Birds:

You can see his feathers were all ruffled up from the almost constant wind.

They were such a delight to see and here.

We also saw Mourning Doves and some other little birds (I’ll have to check with Doug and let you know what they’re called.)

So we got to the spot where we wanted to photograph sunset from. Soc (the dog) was with us and he was anxious to get out of the truck!

I brought my little video camera with me to capture sunset – but I goofed – it ran out of juice! doh! I’m charging it now and will try again soon.

We also got to see a Beaver swimming along.  He always seems to pop out when there is very low light, so the pics aren’t that great.  Here he is:

Here are photos and my interpretations of sunset showing the energy I felt when viewing it:

Deep Cut Gardens Greenhouse - Beth Sawickie

Nature Stroll – Deep Cut Gardens Greenhouse – March 11th, 2015

Someone on Facebook mentioned this greenhouse at Deep Cut Gardens in Middletown, NJ several weeks ago – when it was 25 degrees F and below for long stretches of time.

Greenhouse = warmth, plants, green, color… LIFE!

I just “had” to get there!  Problem was…. along with that bitter cold weather came snow, ice and treacherous roads.

This green house was over an hours drive on unfamiliar roads.  So I waited.

I was thrilled to finally make it here!

Here is a Nature Stroll video showing the many occupants of the 80 degree F greenhouse 🙂

There are no chairs in there… but let me tell you, next winter when I’m chilled to the bone… you WILL find me in this greenhouse, possibly sitting on a smuggled-in lounge chair with a nice glass of iced tea and a favorite book 🙂
