Jones Point Light

This lighthouse is interesting because it is the location of the South Boundary Stone which marks the southern tip of the original surveyed city of Washington D.C. Due to the retrocession of this land to Virginia in 1846, this lighthouse now sits in Alexandria, Virginia.

Capitol Dome

I can’t help it – the dome looks so good. This is a different angle from last week and a closer look at the U.S. Capitol dome here in Washington D.C.

The U.S. Capitol

The Capitol Building looks so nice now that the scaffolding is down. The multi-year repair of the dome is done, and it looks spectacular. Obviously in Washington D.C.

Just Before Dusk in Charleston

I really love catching this time of day in an old city. The lights of the ground floor against a darkening background is one of my favorite things to photograph. This is in Charleston, South Carolina.

Luna Games

Every once in a while I see a sign that just has to be photographed. Nothing else, just the sign. This one is at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York.

Atlantic City Lighthouse

This is the Absecon Lighthouse in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Built in 1854, it is the tallest lighthouse in New Jersey and the third tallest masonry lighthouse in the country. Although deactivated in 1933, it remains a landmark to the city.

New York City Street Vendor

I really enjoyed taking this photo. Dusk was just settling in on New York City, and this street vendor had such a warm glow to it. It was very welcoming on such a cold evening.

Dusk in the French Quarter

I took this shot as dusk was settling in and the lights were coming on in the French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana. It is a magical time of day, and I loved the light coming out of this shop and the ironwork on the building. I used to live a few blocks away from where I took this, and I loved walking through the Quarter every day.

Cape Enrage Light

While the sea was calm and the weather sunny today, I can only imagine what this coastline looks like in a bad storm. And yet through it all, this lighthouse stands its post.

Coquille River Light

Yes, I like lighthouses. I love their uniqueness in design and setting, their beautiful functionality and the history of their keepers. This is the Coquille River Light in Bandon, Oregon.

Cape Blanco Light

This is the beautiful Cape Blanco Lighthouse in southern Oregon. Small but solid, it stoically  keeps its watch as it has every night for 150 years.

Redwood Rays

I probably almost got into an accident when I pulled into this particular grove of redwoods in Redwood National Park in California. The sun rays through the trees were absolutely breathtaking. I have never seen the sun play through the shadows like this.
