THE STORY BEHIND THE PHOTOS

Perhaps to make up for the brutal Winter of 2013, the Summer of 2014 on the East Coast was particularly beautiful. One weekend was more gorgeous than the next. These images are collection of photos from various locations around the State, including the Jersey Shore and points further north.

The emphasis in these photos is on color and movement. I looked for scenes of great contrast, either temporally such as movement of the clouds or water, or in terms of light, shadow and color. Each photo takes me back to a particular moment when deep inner gratitude and outer beauty coincided.
