Getting to the Point

I was going to continue with my weather/photography related posts hitting bright sun, heavy overcast, etc. but even I got bored with the thought of reading them. So I’ll get right to the point. Rather than deciding what you want to photograph and hoping the weather will cooperate instead see what the weather will allow […]

Back to the Barn!

I was nosing around this morning at the farm and came upon these two gear still lifes. There are at least a dozen old barns on the farm and each one has stuff hanging on the inside walls- many have stuff hanging on the outside walls as well. The top photo is of a favorite […]

Fog 2

Ok, I seem to be on a roll, a weather roll. Here are some of my favorite fog photos…I couldn’t resist. I love to photograph in the fog because fog wipes out the background replacing any annoying or distracting elements with a magical soft white gauze. Photographing in fog is fabulous. And it’s fun too! Here […]

A visitor in the night

I had a strange and wonderful visitor in the dark last night, a male luna moth. What a wondrous animal! It is about 4″ long and 3″ wide with a white body and tiny red legs. I know it is a male luna moth because like most moths, the antennae are broad and not skinny […]

So I started to think about other surprising weather conditions that I like for photography and I came up with my all time favorite…Rain! I then opened up Lightroom and typed in ‘rain’ in the search keywords field and lo and behold many of my all time favorite photos appeared! What is it about the rain that […]

Horse Barn Swallow

I had a little fun with a pair of barn swallows in the horse barn on the dairy farm where I help with chores. The pair was nesting 20′ back from the big doors and as I watched them I saw that they frequently perched on the old horse tack stored in the beams of the […]

Fog and Forests!

Fog and Forests!

Boy I love fog! As soon as the the clouds descend or the fog envelopes I head for the forest. The combination of fog and forest equals magical photography. The best part of fog in the forest is that the fog wipes out all the background so the forest becomes almost 1-dimensional and thus much […]

Salamanders the right way

Salamanders the right way

So I went back up into the woods and tried again to get some nice pics of salamanders and efts. It has been so dry that it has been very hard to find the little squirmy devils. Needing moist skin, amphibians will go underground when things are dry on the forest floor leaving prying photographers […]

The Passage Bird

The Passage Bird

I was out in my wood shed stacking cords this morning when an unusual birdcall caught my ear and wouldn’t let go. It was loud and emphatic, I mean really emphatic, a mix of slower staccato notes followed crisply by a faster rough trill. Not very melodic but very noticeable if you are near. I […]
