Winterth�r Estate was built by one of the descendents of E.I. duPont de Nemours, founder of the Dupont Chemical Corporation. This stone house was built in "the woods" as a place for children to play. Inside are miniature chairs and tables and a working fireplace. You can imagine the fun that children had playing here in the early and mid 1900s.

Longwood Gardens is another famous DuPont estate hosting 1,077 acres of formal gardens, both indoor and out. Among all the formality is a playful model railroad set amid numerous flowering plants. I managed to capture the train just as it was coming out of the flowers down the tracks directly towards me.

Federal Hill in Baltimore, MD was at one time an important military vantage point in helping to defend the port of Baltimore. Less then a mile away is Fort McHenry where Francis Scott Key penned the Star Spangled Banner after witnessing the United States flag still flying after an all night battle during which time he was being held prisoner aboard a British Naval vessel in Baltimore Harbor.

If you have ever visited the Civil War Battlefield in Gettysburg, PA, you know how somber a place it is. Thousands of lives were lost in this three day battle that was the pivotal battle in the war between the North and the South. The moon shone strong as dusk settled in, making for a magnificent image that evokes the somberness this place demands.

These two ladies were instructors in a class I took that included a tour of the Gettysburg Civil War battlefield. Seeing them embrace as they looked out over the site of the first day's battle captured the feelings that I had as I too looked over this place.

Fall was the perfect time to capture this old stone mill and spring house. It sits on a small hill among towering oak trees that had recently blanked the ground and trees with warm autumn colors.

The driveway up to the Thomas Farm residence is lined with large, old maple trees. In the fall these trees light up the drive way in fiery colors of burnt orange, red and yellow. The long, straight, tree lined driveway provides the anchor and draws you completely through the scene.

Great Falls on the Potomac River just outside Washington DC is not a single, tall waterfall. Instead, it is a sequence of extremely treacherous cascades. The perspective captured above provides a sense of energy and tension as the water rushes over the rocky terrain. In summer, kayakers flock to this dangerous location to challenge themselves and flirt with death. Every summer people die here.

This lake is man made and in a public park. The trees surrounding the lake come alive with the colors of fall every year. I return here to photograph year after year. It pays to know your own back yard. The fishermen add that human element to an already spectacular view. Can you feel the relaxation they experience being completely surrounded by this as they fish?

This was taken at an outdoor music and arts festival in the Delray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia just across the Potomac River from downtown Washington DC. These girls could not have been more content as they sat on bales of hay licking their ice cream while their parents listened to the band performing on stage.

This hotel is most known for hosting writer Stephen King as he penned the first drafts of his famous novel The Shining. The lesser known fact is that this hotel was built by F.O. Stanley of the famous Stanley Steamer. This image conveys a great sense of place for the hotel's 9,000 foot elevation high up in the Rockies in Estes Park, Colorado.

Newport, Rhode Island is known for the Guilded Age "summer cottages" built by the very wealthy socialites of New York City in the late 1800's and early 1900's to escape the heat of summer in the city. These prestigious estates were built along the cliffs of Newport island facing the sea to afford the owners the cool ocean breezes. The wealthy home owners were not pleased when a walkway was built along these cliffs that allowed "normal" people to see into these homes. The small people along the cliff walk above provide a sense of scale for one of the smaller cottages along the Cliff Walk.

The Stratosphere Hotel Casino and Tower is a well known icon in Las Vegas, Nevada. Rare though is the site of the Tower with snowfall as it snows in Las Vegas a few times per decade. This was taken from my 26th floor hotel window which just happened to be facing the right direction to capture this on morning of December 30th, 2003.
