Cover Photo Dunes and the Sea This month’s cover photo comes from Susan Ogden. We ran across her photos on-line. Great photographs jump up and catch your attention. Check out her excellent work at She can reached at Susan is a self taught photographer and artist working from her homes in North Western NJ in the summer, and in the Outer Banks of NC, in the winter. She has owned and operated her own seasonal, art, cottage business in NJ for almost 30 years, from her vintage home, every autumn. Her passion is photography, although she paints, and works in inks. She also creates and repurposes pieces she finds in nature or thrift stores! Art has always been her passion and she is finally able to pursue it full time after paying her dues at a real job! wink wink! Susan enjoys being out in nature, hiking and searching the beaches for treasures, reading and working with her camera and art. She is a self-professed edit junkie who enjoys experimenting with new ideas. Susan loves to read, and since she is a night owl, that is how she chooses to relax before calling it a day. She is sometimes found, as she calls it, ~down the rabbit hole~, editing her photos into works of art well into the wee small hours of the morning. 2 Albemarle Tradewinds February 2016
