So. Much. Color!

When the White Mountains aren’t so white. It’s pretty obvious that when the early European settlers who arrived in New Hampshire first laid eyes on what are now known as the White Mountains, it wasn’t during the fall. Had they arrived during late September or early October, they would probably have been named the Red,… Read More

Speaking of Black & White.

Seeing in black and white. For reasons I can’t explain, I’ve been on a black and white kick lately. The problem is that I don’t “see” in black and white, never. Rarely am I able to look at a scene and recognize its potential as a black and white image. Sometimes I get lucky and… Read More

I Don’t Do Lighthouses.

Really I don’t. Though these pictures may lead you to believe otherwise, lighthouses really don’t do much for me. Sure they’re pretty, they’re scenic, and they’re about as iconic New England as it gets, blah, blah, blah. Everything a lighthouse aficionado could possibly want. Still, even though there are several quite photogenic lighthouses within short… Read More

Pulled Pork Ruined My Sunset!

There’s not going to be much of a sunset anyway. Normally, in order to better plan and prepare for going out to photograph I pay very close attention to the weather forecast. Especially if it’s predicted that any type of storm or cloudy skies will be clearing out so as the tail end of the… Read More

“The Mountains Are Calling And I Must Go”

That John Muir was on to something. I love these mountains. A Lot. The White Mountains are the reason I stayed in New Hampshire after finishing my enlistment in the Air Force, and they’re a large part of the reason I photograph. The White Mountains are especially magical when they’re, well, white. Yes they are… Read More

Fort Foster ~ Part 1: The Pier

Active from 1901 thru 1946, the fort is now part of Fort Foster Park, and managed by the town of Kittery, Maine. The park is a year ’round favorite with everyone… Read More

First Light, A Little Late.

Happy New Year! My apologies for being a few days late. I was so preoccupied with putting together my end of the year post that I completely forgot to commemorate the beginning of the new one. Continuing a tradition I started over a decade ago I awoke bright and early on New Years Day and… Read More

12, Give Or Take, From The Fire.

2020, a year in through the lens. I know I’m not the only one who’s happy we’re finally putting the dumpster fire that was 2020 behind us. It was a year that started out strong for many of us, then cratered miserably for far too many. Coming through the last year unscathed creatively was no… Read More
