Happy Halloween

Sure seems as though the adults have "taken over" the whole Halloween thing!

Requirements: young enthusiasm, lack of arthritis and a quality wet suit.

Soon the dreaded seasonal end to Daylight Savings Time will be upon us. Early sunsets and dark afternoons will become the norm as Fall slowly slides into winter. Time to start planning that tropical winter escape!

Alone with the ocean, yet another reason why it's called "fishing" not "catching".

Peak fall color is a fleeting thing on Long Island and the past few days may just have been "showtime" for Mother Nature!

Conflicting Interests

"Fish or Cut Bait?" Fish or shoot photos? Sunrise can the best time to do either creating a joyful dilemma!

Iconic Clock

Shooting natural light indoors is always a fun challenge but the real truth is that it was cold and rainy outside!

Doe Eyed

The locals are reclaiming their beach now that the crowd has left!

"What Sign?"

Rumor has it that this guy was on his cell phone and texting as he drove into the city by himself in the car pool lane.
This shot is almost always a given, the few times I have taken my camera into Grand Central Station it seems like this guy or one of his relatives is perched in front of that sign! :-)

Misty, rainy and very peaceful. Great day to settle in with a good book! :-)

Davis Park Connection

With no access for cars, Davis Park's major mode of transportation must float. The ferry connects Davis to the "mainland" via Patchogue. After Labor day the weekday ferry runs are few and far between with the last departure from Davis at 4pm. If you miss that last ferry and are without a boat, you are spending the night!

Catch The Sun

It's the old "shot while shooting" shot! Looks like another bayside brezzy sunset with lots of beauty to focus on! Life is Good!

Morning Cast

The light of sunrise bathes the beach at Davis park. This whole photography thing really is all about the light! :-)

Surf's Up

A small but dedicated group of Long Island surfers stay true to their passion throughout the "off-season". When the weather turns and the surf gets angry there is always a chance to find one of these hardy souls on a deserted beach somewhere on Fire Island!

Fishing vs. Catching

Always hopeful, surf casting involves alot more casting than catching. For me, the real joy comes from the "being" there at ocean's edge and the possibility of maybe, just maybe...!

Late Reflections

Sunset from a different point of view. The magical light of a setting sun provides a real show for those who choose watch!

September Beach

Talk about "having the beach all to yourself", and the biggest decision of the day is, "just where should I put my chair?" (best in larger view)

If each new day is a gift, this just may be one of the nicest places to receive it. An Atlantic sunrise, certainly worth the minor inconvenience of staggering out of bed in the dark. Life is Good. (best in large view)

Oh Deer

Rent a beach house on the bay and having visitors is an enjoyable reality. This friendly neighbor stopped by the other morning for coffee, or rather to watch me drink coffee. He calmly took in the view as we enjoyed each other's company.

Just Visiting

Wanting a "view" with your meal seems to be universal. (Best in large on image)

Sunset on the Bay

September sunsets to be savored, best viewed from Davis Park. Life is Good!
