The Dorflinger-Suydam Wildlife Sanctuary is set in rural Northeast Pennsylvania at the edge of the historic village of White Mills. On the grounds is also the Dorflinger Glass Museum and you may also visit some of the original Dorflinger factory buildings in the village. But for now, lets look at a tree photograph taken in the Sanctuary.
Steamtown is a treasure chest of railroad equipment and for a photographer an almost unlimited opportunity to take great photographs of restored and unrestored equipment. I have decided to do studies of individual pieces of equipment just for the fun of it! The first series is of Old No. 1.
The Live Oaks on Hilton Head Island are magnificent, but very hard to photograph because of their size. I am experimenting with a semi – fisheye lens on a infrared camera body.
Honey Horn Plantation on Hilton Head Island is the home of the Coastal Discovery Museum and some of the most magnificent trees on Hilton Head Island.
As I left the dock a few days ago, I was amazed to see not one, but two floating train like tows coming down the Intracoastal Waterway. The first was a tug pulling a large dredge and its support materials and the second was another tug pulling the dredge’s pipe. Along with the tugs pulling were smaller push boats helping the lengthy tows around the winding channel.
I have photographed the two shrimp boats that ran aground in Jarvis Creek on Hilton Head Island several times. They could not be salvaged and are now being broken up and hauled away. The Lady Essie was already gone when I made one more trip up the creek to photograph the Dianie. Even with fairly high water, I almost ran aground in this tricky channel, and I only need about two feet to stay afloat. I was however able to get fairly close to the boat. It is a sad sight, the loss of a shrimp boat and the demise of someone’s livelihood.

My study of Fort Pickens Casements began on February 2. I intend to publish this later as a slide show, but right now will just post a single photo until I figure out some new software for slide shows.
The last day I was in New Mexico, I photographed the Rio Grande outside of Mesilla, NM. The River here is not part of the border between the United States and Mexico.
