My White Whale.

The Gardens in Prescott Park. Prescott Park, located on the waterfront in beautiful Portsmouth, NH is a place I’ve visited and photographed often, really, really often! I’ve photographed there at night. (please excuse the overly intrusive watermark) I’ve photographed there at sunrise. (again with the giant watermark?) I’ve even photographed there in the winter. But… Read More

Love, Hate, and Long Exposure.

My love/hate relationship with long exposure photography. What I love is that when the conditions are right the resulting images can be quite striking. Silky smooth water, windblown clouds creating dramatic streaks of color across the sky, all good stuff that requires long exposure times to capture. But, and here’s the rub, I hate the… Read More

Though it still looks like winter in many parts of New Hampshire, it’s slowly loosening its grip on the land as the days grow longer and… Read More

Distractions Along The Way.

Are We There Yet? Last Saturday my good friend Suzanne (aka Chubby Hiker Chick) and I set out to visit Bridal Veil Falls in the Franconia Notch area of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. The hike was an easy 2.5 mile out and back with a modest elevation gain of only 1100′. The weather was perfect,… Read More

SOOC.

Confessions of a (former) die-hard RAW shooter. Day after day my Fujifilm X-T2 amazes me with the images I’m able to produce, especially the straight out of camera (SOOC) jpegs. Case in point, this wonderful winter scene captured using the wonderful film simulations built into the camera. With my camera set to capture both RAW… Read More
