Backyard Late-Winter Nature in New Jersey. Three Days to Spring — Daffodils in Bloom.

I’ve been busy at work while trying to get ready for a photography workshop in Death Valley. I did have a chance to photograph the daffodils blooming across the street when I got home. It was actually 79°F outside, and I was able to open windows and let some fresh air into the house for the first time since last year.

My interests include the natural world, wildlife, landscapes, sky, and seascapes, travel, and astrophotography. I look for unique ways of viewing the world and presenting my images. I have traveled to over 55 countries in six continents, often on Semester at Sea voyages. While at home in New Jersey, I spend time on home renovation and expansion of a wildflower garden/meadow.
