Dancing With Waves At PHL.

Sunset over a Maine classic. It’s been several years since my last visit to this iconic lighthouse along the coast of Maine. Fortunately, a few weeks back my good friend Nate sent me last minute text to say he had the evening off from work and to ask if I would be interested in getting… Read More

My Beautiful Balloon.

Up, Up, and Away! This weekend the hot air balloons arrive in Pittsfield, New Hampshire for the 38th Annual Suncook Valley Rotary Hot Air Balloon Rally, one of my favorite events to photograph! From the sunrise liftoff, to Saturday evenings Night Glow and the fireworks that follow, there’s fun for everyone, not just us photographer… Read More

Bones.

Graveyard By The Sea. Sand dunes as headstones. The final resting place of some long forgotten creature, mammoth in size, perhaps prehistoric. Its bones exposed as the waves wash over its final resting place. My eye is always drawn to the smooth grey-white surface of driftwood. Cast upon the shore by the last big storm,… Read More

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

Falling In Love, Again.

The Fujifilm XF35mm F2 R WR, a Christmas gift from my wife, is the first prime lens I added to my bag since switching from Canon to Fuji. It’s an amazing lens that’s sharp, compact, has a reasonably fast aperture, super fast autofocus, and it’s WR. That last bit is “Weather Resistant” in Fujifilm speak.… Read More

5:58 p.m.

Saying goodbye to Winter. Yesterday at 5:58 p.m., Spring arrived in the northern hemisphere. As much as I love winter, I’m really looking forward to the longer, warmer days. 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

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

Calm Before The Storm.

With a winter storm bearing down on the Northeast, with as much as 20″ of snow expected in some parts of New Hampshire, Saturday morning looked like it was going to be my only window of opportunity to venture out for a few photographs this past weekend. So with high hopes I headed to the… Read More

Tripods Need Love Too!

Considering how much it cost me, you’d think I might take better care of my tripod, you’d be wrong. Without question my tripod is the most abused piece of gear I own. That is except for the few times a year my tripod gets the love it deserves for serving me so faithfully all these… Read More
