Welcome, fall, my second favorite time of year. The air is cooler, the colors are vibrant, and some of our best holidays take place in autumn. What’s not to love?
Sunrise on Rehoboth Beach, Delaware is one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen. During my summer vacation I took sunrise photos almost every morning on the beach and was amazed at the uniqueness of each daybreak. The following unretouched photographs seemed like an appropriate welcome to the new season. I hope you enjoy them.
Summer is my favorite time of year and I’m always sad to see it go. I was lucky to have captured a particularly beautiful sunset while on vacation in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and thought the pictures were an appropriate farewell to my favorite season.
All five of these unretouched photographs were taken within minutes of each other, but from different perspectives. Some were taken from my balcony overlooking the ocean. The others were taken from my balcony outside the front door. A few steps within a time span of only 20 minutes created totally different visions of the sky. A year can be like that too. Each day might be different, but is part of the whole of our lives.
Until next year, summer.
I’m excited to share the cover art for my upcoming contemporary romance release with Boroughs Publishing Group!

Here’s a glimpse of the book:
NATURALLY YOURS by Adele Downs
Who will save a man who saves the world?
Paramedic Mickey Kendall hasn’t slept a full night since his return from Iraq. He rescues victims by day and protects the innocent after dark. Mickey doesn’t do it for glory; he wants absolution, not admiration. He lives by the rule: No personal contact after a rescue. That code meets the ultimate test when Mickey saves a child’s life on a roadside and declines the parents’ invitation to dinner at their upscale restaurant.
Master chef Amanda Greer lives by the principle that delicious food and good company build bridges. When she learns Mickey has refused her business partners’ hospitality, she persuades him to change his mind. The handsome paramedic visits her restaurant and Amanda joins him at his table. Their unexpected chemistry turns kinetic and leads to a passionate kiss.
In Amanda’s arms, Mickey finds relief from the stressors that haunt him, but resists falling in love. When Amanda challenges him to face his demons and accept the love she offers, Mickey arrives at a crossroad. The war-weary paramedic must first save himself to claim the woman who reignites his passion for living and revives his wounded heart.
I visited Ground Zero a few months after 9/11/01 and watched the construction crews clean up. This is a solemn site. I couldn’t smile during the obligatory photo op.
Just got back from a week’s vacation in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. I don’t know how hubby and I managed to book the only week of the summer with a seven-day stretch of sunshine, but we did. I feel like we hit the vacation lottery. The expression, “If you’re lucky enough to visit the beach; you’re lucky enough” should include the addendum, “especially if you have perfect weather.” I’m still in awe of our good fortune.
I took hundreds of photographs during our stay in Delaware and will post many of them as time allows. The edits for my October 7, 2014 release NATURALLY YOURS take priority. I’ll post a cover reveal of the book soon. I have lots more publishing news to share, so stay tuned!
Here is one of the photographs I took on the beach at sunrise with my little Fuji digital camera. This original photo is unretouched and uploaded exactly the way it appears in my card file. I hope it starts your week off right.
September Sunrise on Rehoboth Beach.
Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA was the perfect place to spend a day to celebrate. After turning in my latest manuscript HER CHRISTMAS COWBOY for November 2014 release, my husband and I took a drive to enjoy a relaxing day of beauty and sunshine. We strolled through miles of gardens, ate lunch in the conservatory, and took hundreds of photographs. Here are some of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them.
