It's the year for arriving late to the pinesap party. After years of looking for this unusual flower I found the mother lode in Weare, NH. OMG they were everywhere, but just past their full bloom stage. Darn it. You can bet I won't be late next year.
More from the yard. Everything was shot with the legacy OM 90mm f2 macro except for the amanita. My husband is used to it by now. If I see something, I can't sit still until I shoot it. Sometimes just a new idea about how to shoot something will obsess me until I do it.... Continue Reading →
I took a day off this week to do some spring shooting. It ended up being a pretty perfect day. Overcast and not too hot and it didn't actually rain. It had just done though so the colors really popped. Yeah, I was pretty much surrounded by mosquitoes in the Musquash the whole time I... Continue Reading →

Since I always use natural light, sometimes I have to... Continue Reading →
By now you must know how much I love indian pipe wildflowers and how even though my original project was for one season, I still shoot them almost every time I see them. Usually they bloom in June and sometimes spill over into July. But October? October?! Psyche!! Yes, I did place one of those... Continue Reading →
Lately I have been a bit starved for inspiration. The same-old-same-old just isn't doing it for me. As a result, I shoot less. I'm not bothered by this. Ups and downs are part of my normal. When I do go in the woods I just can't see if you know what I mean. I think... Continue Reading →
