There are still spots left on my Vermont Crossroads workshop that I am doing in June in my home area in southern Vermont. This year we will have two non-profit partners- the Vermont Land Trust and the Dorset Equine Rescue. We are photographing a brand new property for the Land Trust this year- the Merck […]

Hidden behind the Color

Messin’ around with some pics late last night and look what I found!! There, right in front of me all this time, where some really nice black and white forest images! they had been hiding behind all the wonderful color! Several of the 20 or so pics I turned into b&w in Lightroom where color images […]

Photographing the Forest

Forests are some of the hardest environments to photograph in, at least they are for me. I doubt anyone has taken more pictures in forests over the last 30 years but still I find it an extremely challenging place to find a good image. The problem is that there is just so much stuff going […]

Spring Tulips!

Since it is cold, dreary and miserable here in the Northeast I thought I would post some very Spring tulip pics. These were all taken one morning in the Keukenhof Garden, an internationally famous garden in the Netherlands, I visited a couple of years ago. April is tulip season in the Netherlands so if these […]

Have we all had, by now, just enough of the ‘Hey, look what I did!’ part of photography? We show our friends, we show our family, we show our camera clubbers, we show our workmates, our neighbors, our maids, our butlers, we basically show everyone we possibly can our pictures…and then what? Are we doing […]

Okay, just one more (maybe). This is a shot of the tundra in Denali National Park in early September- the peak of their fall color! There were miles and miles of magnificent tundra- all right under your feet! Of course, there were also grizzly bears and caribou and moose and that terribly distracting towering white […]

This was the perfect day at Crabtree lake in the Oregon Cascades- fresh snow, no wind, soft light and no a soul in sight. I had one of the prettiest places I have ever been all to myself. A week later the access was snowed in so I was lucky to get this shot when […]

There was a time when I spent every April photographing desert flowers in Arizona. I haven’t been back in two decades but looking at this image it makes me want to go back and do it all over again. I took this Globemallow with my Pentax 6×7 medium format camera. It wasn’t very good for […]

Sol Duc Falls in Olympic National Park, Washington is one of my all-time favorite places in the world. It is a ¾ mile hike through a magnificent old forest to get to the falls and there are photographs everywhere. Go there on a quiet, misty day or even a lightly raining day- the light will […]

You all are going to have to suffer through a visual trip down memory lane for a few posts. I am just about done going through my 100,ooo slides I had in my office and in the process of doing so I found some images that I hadn’t seen in a long, long time. The […]
