Sunrise, Sunset

Inspired by watching the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean for several days, I began photographing sunrises and sunsets near Ithaca, NY. Join me in celebrating the rise and fall of our favorite star in this episode 120 of Walk in the Park. Watch it on Ithaca cable channel 13 (and 97.1) on Thursday, 11/26, at 9:00 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday at 10:00 a.m.; and Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2015, at 8:00 p.m. Or watch it here online anywhere, anytime!

Buckroe to Dismal Swamp


Gulls at Virginia Beach

Great black-backed gulls work the surf at Virginia Beach.

In this episode of Walk in the Park TV (#30, Nov. 28, 2012), we return to southeast Virginia, site of the earliest English-speaking settlements in America.  I show you Buckroe Beach in the City of Hampton on the Chesapeake Bay, the first beach I knew as a little kid. What was the unusual hazard discovered on this beach after its sand was replenished in the 1990s?

After a visit to Newport News, we go to Virginia Beach, Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge, and False Cape State Park on the Atlantic Ocean, just two miles north of North Carolina’s Outer Banks. And finally, we follow a boardwalk in Dismal Swamp State Park just over the border into North Carolina, on the edge of one of the largest remaining lowland wetlands in the East.
