A turn in the season

Still a little wintry and grey around these parts, a nasty storm kept me inside on my normal Saturday photo hike day. Fortunately there was enough of a break in the cold and gloom earlier in the week for a short walk. Sunday morning was bright and shiny, a little chilly, but hopefully a turn in the seasons.

Moment of zen

Water neverwhere

Bay skyline


Still wintry

  1. My cat Scruffy is so cute. I can’t wait to hold him soon ;) Loved the set this week- Especially the beach shots. I’m so excited for October now! :)


  2. What a gorgeous pic of the beach! And I smiled at the pic of your kitty. I live with a shutterbug and my iphone – MY iPHONE – is filled with hundreds of pics of our cats taken by my husband. He takes fabulous pictures as well. Shutterbugs definitely have an eye. I would miss the opportunity to take most of these shots because I don’t have the proper “eye” to see them with. Thank you for coming over and visiting my blog and leaving that lovely comment. Best, Rebecca


  3. Your pictures are so vivid and rich.

    I gave you an ABC award! If you don’t do the blog award thing, no sweat, but if you’re interested, drop by jesterqueen to pick it up.


  4. I like the two shots of sea and sky meeting at a dark line. Just wondering is the oil spill damage mostly gone now? I’ve seen a TV ad (paid for by the oil company) promoting the tourism of the gulf.


    • The worst of the spill was more west of us, Louisiana and Texas. The beaches look great. When it happened, we had community cleaning crews out 24/7 and they did a wonderful job.


    • I am from coastal Louisiana. Amazingly, a lot of the oil has been cleaned up. Long term damage is evidenced in the sky high prices for seafood. In my hometown, prices were dirt cheap, since fisherman were eager to sell what was not picked up by big companies. Now, oysters and shrimp are very expensive, and I doubt the quality of what I eat.


  5. I love the sky in that last one. Your cat sure know the good spots in the house! Water neverwhere made me smile, love that one too! They’re all great, as usual!!


  6. Wo ho ho! Now that am done getting distracted by your lovely refreshing header and finding the watermarks …. mmmm. love the moment of zen and the water neverwhere!

    Your blog is always a pleasure to watch for, Tara!


  7. Your kitty looks like my kitty! :-) I show my husband your photos every time. He likes how you place your settings under each one. He has a Nikon D700


  8. I can see a little bit green already!
    In Helsinki the weekend has been SUNNY! a miracle after a long, dark winter….
    Have a good week ahead!
