Searchlight Sunset Searchlight Sunset
"We were at Ocean city, and I witnessed this interesting sight: a beam of light shooting straight up from the sun like a search-light. It was beautiful, and startling. I was told it had something to do with the snow in the atmosphere."
(Photo journalist, Maureen Spagnolo, caught this fantastic sunset in Ocean City, Maryland, in early January, 2011.)
Thy Woods All But Cry With Colour Thy Woods All But Cry With Colour
A wonderful shot vibrant with autumn colors, taken by photo-journalist, Maureen Spagnolo, in Great Falls, Virginia.
Austrian Summer Austrian Summer
Once again
Do I behold these steep and lofty cliffs,
That on a wild secluded scene impress
Thoughts of more deep seclusion; and connect
the landscape with the quiet of the sky

(Words of William Wordsworth capture the feeling of this beautiful shot taken by photographer Jean-Pierre Laurent during his vacation in Austria this summer)
"I Want to Go to There" "I Want to Go to There"
This is a gorgeous shot of the Maine coast in August, taken by Maureen Spagnolo, a photojournalist living in Washington, DC.
"I want to go to there" is a line spoken by Tina Fey from one of our favorite shows, the NBC comedy, "30 Rock".

"Thou spongy lily-livered pigeon egg!" "Thou spongy lily-livered pigeon egg!"
Kazuo, having just completed a class on Shakespeare, decides to test an insult on his brother.

(Photograph by Mike Romani. Sibling kingfishers share a branch in Hoshinaike, Obu, Aichi, Japan. Romani said, "These are two of three recently born babies. I spent ten and a half hours here today as it was perhaps the last day for me to photograph the babies here. They'll probably fly off on their own before I'll be able to return next Sunday. However, there will probably be more babies in July and again in the autumn.")
