Amelia Island – Come Walk With Me

Amelia Island – Come Walk With Me 2:

I love to walk…beach, mountains, hills, woods and anywhere where I am surrounded by nature or beautiful architecture with my camera gear in tow ready to capture the beauty of it. I especially love to walk the beach at sunrise and sunset.  Amelia Island is the perfect place for nature walkers (and photographers, of course) for feasts of delights for the eyes and soul.  From the majestic ocean and Intracoastal Waterway views to the glorious sunrise-sunsets, boardwalk waterways and marshes, to the Sunken Forest, Aury Island, Drummond Point Park and Walker’s Landing and more — it’s a little heavenly bit of Eden on earth.


On this year’s Amelia Island photo tour, we spent days walking the trails throughout the island winding through Spanish moss-draped live oaks and palmettos which opened to gorgeous ocean and marsh views.  A gear-laden photog can exhaust themselves very quickly so with Canon5dMII and tripod in tow, I left our gear [that’s it right there sitting on the sand in the middle of the photo] to follow the walk to the open marshes to view its plethora of waterfowl, wildlife, flora and after shooting, we returned and I was glad to see the gators, crocks or a photog wannabe  had not absconded with our gear!

And finally, the anticipation of the “Sunken Forest” that trails down, then winding up to spectacular views of the ocean.  My new favorite private spot on the island. It doesn’t get better than this — sunrise in all its glory!

There’s more to come…watch for new postings. Until then, enjoy the views and if you want a truly enjoyable photography adventure, visit Amelia Island.

Autumn Reflections

Autumn,–the slow name lingers,
While we likewise flag;
It silences many singers;
Its slow days drag,
Yet hasten at speed
To leave us in chilly need
For Winter to strip indeed.*

The Poet’s Song of the Trees

As we travel the hills, vales and lake country, we are inspired to take rest and gaze upon the beauty that lies before our eyes and take in all of its fullness before the invasion of our photography captures bits and pieces to travel back home as a reminder of what we have seen before us. So lovely, so serene, so poetic!

Song of the Trees

WE are the Trees.
Our dark and leafy glade
Bands the bright earth with softer mysteries.
Beneath us changed and tamed the seasons run:
In burning zones, we build against the sun
Long centuries of shade.

We are the Trees
That by great waters stand,
By rills that murmur to our murmuring bees.
And where, in tracts all desolate and waste,
The palm-foot stays, man follows on, to taste
Springs in the desert sand.
