When I read that line, lighthouse imagery immediately came to mind. It also conjured up a verse we use on many of our keepsakes for godparents: For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end. In this case, you’re looking at Portland Head Light on … Continued

Won’t You Please Linger, Autumn?

How I wish the beautiful autumn color would linger just a little bit longer!! Photographing the landscape always seems like a race against time during this especially lovely season.
