Shadow Shot Sunday - The Chapel at Sea Ranch

Pin It




A trip to Sea Ranch to be with the grandboys while their parents had an anniversary outing doubled as an opportunity to re-visit this beautiful little pan-denominational chapel.

While taking the outside photos the sun "came out from behind a cloud", casting the shadows of the hand-wrought spire onto the roof.

To see more shadow shots from other shadow-chasing photographers, check out Shadow Shot Sunday each and every Sunday.

Black Calla Lily in Autumn

Pin It





While the brilliant colors of autumn are making quite a spectacle of themselves outdoors against a clear blue sky, the black calla lily plant I purchased in October is putting on a dazzling display of its own on the sun porch.

Japanese Maple and Clematis

Pin It

Fall colors are ablaze these days on Raven Ridge; from pure yellows to orange, copper and fiery red.
This vignette is comprised of Japanese maple and a white-blooming clematis - a little shy of flowers but quite a prolific grower. I cut it back several times during the summer to keep it from completely engulfing the dwarf maple tree.
