    These are by a French Canadian photographic artist, Denis Collette. I love his use of color, and his approach to his art. He photographs the area surrounding his home, then uses the photographs as inspiration for these impressionistic creations.

    Inner Light

    End of Autumn

    Ordinary Miracles

    The Blue Spirit of Giverny

    "First, the majority of my pictures are taken on my homeland… I use a similar approach as Thoreau… For me, photography is a metaphysical approach… I don’t decide on subjects… it’s the light who decides… and when my heart says… 'OK Woodsman'… I shoot!!! :))"


  • Nature Claims Some Land..

    "A northeaster (nor'easter) is a winter storm that forms in the mid-latitudes between the months of September and April. Nor'easters travel northward in the Atlantic Ocean, with winds blowing towards the shore along the eastern United States and Canadian coastlines. Because of the cyclonic nature of the storm system, the winds blow in a northeastward direction, affecting long reaches of the coastline while the storm is still far to the south. Nor'easters tend to be very large and move slowly, generating high waves that attack the shoreline for long periods of time. The onshore directed winds accentuate the incoming tide, while confining the excess water at the shoreline during a low tide stage. Because nor'easters move slowly, several tidal cycles can be affected, creating a large coastal storm surge."

    A nor'easter blew thru several days ago. We didn't get the worst of it in NJ, but it was a pretty dramatic storm. I couldn't resist going to see the ocean. It was churned up & lashing the shore...

    The wind had been really strong the nite before. A couple of feet of sand accumulated in some places on the boardwalk...

    Big chunks of this old pier broke off & washed up on the shore...

    There can be a fine line between having an ocean view & being part of the ocean...

    Every time a nor'easter blows thru the coastline changes as the ocean claims the land..

    No matter what the weather there are surfers who'll go out...

    ..and crazy fishermen!

    Peter Pan's Shadow

    "I wasn't crying about mothers," Peter said rather indignantly. "I was crying because I can't get my shadow to stick on. Besides, I wasn't crying."

    "It has come off?"


    Then Wendy saw the shadow on the floor, looking so draggled, and she was frightfully sorry for Peter. "How awful!" she said, but she could not help smiling when she saw that he had been trying to stick it on with soap. How exactly like a boy!

    Fortunately she knew at once what to do. "It must be sewn on," she said..."
