Out to the Foggy Sea Through Barnegat Inlet

Doug, Soc and I went to Island Beach State Park today (Feb. 19, 2014).  It rained all morning and was supposed to clear by mid afternoon.  The rain pretty much stopped but the fog persisted.  We decided to head “down the shore” to Island Beach State Park in hopes of seeing some foxes and that darn elusive Snowy Owl!

No foxes or owls for us.  What we DID get to see was miles and miles of beaches with no one else around.  The waves were crashing constantly causing quite a beautiful ruckus.  I was very surprised to see this fishing vessel heading out to sea shortly before sunset.

A fishing vessel heads out of Barnegat Bay into the Atlantic Ocean in New Jersey.  As seen from Island Beach State Park.

Winter Cranberry Bog #1

This was taken at Whitesbog Village in NJ.  In the foreground are a few blueberry bushes.  Whitesbog is where the blueberry was first cultivated.  Beyond the trees are frozen over cranberry bogs.  In the far distance – a few bogs away- is a red roofed pump house.

I shot this photo the same night as the February Full Moon

Two Plus One

I found these doves hanging out on a wire on Valentines Day.  Looks like that 3rd one is an unwanted guest to me – or maybe she’s their chaperon for the evening.

Lily After The Rain

I love flowers – especially with rain drops on them!  I shot this lily at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, NJ.  I was surprised at all the plants, flowers and even free roaming wildlife I found to photograph there.  I feel old now that I enjoy going to theme parks to take pictures more-so than get on the rides!  lol.

Gnome Home #1

I stumbled upon this possible “Gnome Home” while wandering through the snow covered woods.  I’ve been trying to remember just what it is I enjoyed doing when I was a kid.  One of those things was to wander aimlessly through the woods.  I’d follow paths less taken and discover magical places.
