They Tell Me It’s Nice.

Blinded By Disappointment  Have you ever had your heart so set on something that achieving anything less would be a disappointment? That’s how this photograph started out for me. I was heading to Sugar Hill, NH for the annual Fields Of Lupine Festival, where the photographic possibilities are almost endless. Especially if you like lupine. However,… Read More

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says

“Warning, Ice Fall Danger.” From my last trip into Tuckerman Ravine, this sign should get your attention! However, the graphics on this sign, which I missed in the pre-dawn darkness at the base of the trail, made me laugh. Levity aside, the danger is very real. The giant block of blue ice in this photo,… Read More

It’s Not Always About Sharpness.

Sharp lens, blurry photo. Having recently added a Canon 70-200 f/4L IS lens to my camera bag, I needed to go out as soon as I could to test it. Reported to be one of, if not the, sharpest zoom lens Canon has ever made, you might think I’d be out shooting trying to see just… Read More

A Favorite Revisited.

The Pondicherry National Wildlife Refuge. One of my favorite views in all of New Hampshire is this one looking out over Cherry Pond towards Mount Washington and the Presidential Range. Cherry Pond sits on the Pondicherry National Wildlife Refuge in Jefferson, NH. It’s a beautiful place, and if you ever find yourself in New Hampshire… Read More

Weekly “Phoneography” Challenge: My Neighborhood

My “Neighborhood” is large, very large. From my front door, To the lake I live on, To the seacoast, To New Hampshire’s White Mountains, Within an hour or two, in any direction, I can find myself in photographic bliss. A guy with a camera, or iPhone, could do a lot worse.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond

The third time’s the charm, right? On a recent trip to Great Island Commons in New Castle, NH to photograph sunrise I came across this composition and knew the photo I wanted to make. The barnacle and seaweed covered rocks made a great foreground element, the points of rock on either side lead the way to Whaleback… Read More

Sunday’s Hidden Treasure

Livermore Falls, Campton, NH. I’ve always loved the patterns and colors in the ice along the cliff and now I’m finally getting around to doing something with this image. I’m coming to realize that winter might very well be my favorite time of year to make photographs. Original date of capture: 2/6/2010 Camera body: Canon… Read More

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

Reflections,  times three. North American Beaver cautiously checking out the guy with the long glass eye.  Louvers and flames meticulously painted on the hood of a hot rod. Fly fisherman patiently waiting for a trout to rise and take his fly.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

Green,  My first thoughts are of Spring, and new growth. But with Winter rapidly approaching, and the snow that will hopefully come with it, the vibrancy of Spring green is a long way off. However, several of the images below were captured in the dead of winter. For those of you thinking “I’d like to… Read More

Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign.

Since I’m not much of a traveler, I went with an “out-of-place” take on this weeks theme. Walking through the forest you never know what you might come across. For many of you, finding an old car, or what’s left of it, a piece of farm equipment, or even a grave yard, might seem “out-of-place.” Not… Read More
