Ah that famous scene in Pulp Fiction where Vincent enumerates the little differences between the US and Amsterdam. I had a similar experience recently and no, it didn't involve Burger King either. As you've probably gathered by now, I practically live in the woods. It started when I was a kid. No amount of fairy... Continue Reading →
Lickable Light – white balance and how it will make your photos their best!
In the course of a day I look at hundreds of photographs. By participating in Google+, forums, flickr, 500px and other photo communities it's easy to do. One thing that has been getting my attention is that people don't seem to understand white balance and its importance. Mainly I notice it when there is water... Continue Reading →
Not your typical wildflower
Let the microscapes begin! Not the most beautiful or delicate of wildflowers, but one of the first to appear. I went wandering in one of the many nature preserves in Andover, Massachusetts the other day and one section of the swamp was covered with skunk cabbage. I read that they can come up so early...

The Elegance of the Forest
I've been doing a little winter hiking and snowshoeing lately so thought I'd share some shots. The forest is an amazing place to me in any season, but in winter it seems to be draped in finery. This first one I shot today while out in the afternoon. Those shadows are hard to beat. The... Continue Reading →

I go to shoot the falls, but so far no success. The brook however, I manage to get. Shot with the E-30, ZD 12-60mm and... Continue Reading →
How Do I Love Thee October
Let me count the ways - It's been truly wonderful this season. More to come.
While the season is by no means over, the peak color is draining rapidly. A storm came through yesterday that probably knocked a lot of leaves off the trees and so I was even more glad to have gotten out in the days before. Because of my health issue, my fall season was in jeopardy... Continue Reading →
The Hike that Kicked My Ass
The strenuous, but beautiful hike to Mts. Jackson and Webster in the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire.
A few from Seattle
The long walk through Seattle.
Big Sur in Bloom
Back to California we go. This time Big Sur. I've been through Big Sur before on the famous US1 highway that hugs the Pacific coastline. We even stayed at the impossibly posh Post Ranch Inn a few years ago and got to take one of the hotel Lexus convertibles out. Very cool. But it was... Continue Reading →
