What would a river look like drained of it's water? Wonder no more.
Exploring a section of the Ice Age trail in (gasp!) full sunlight! Tips and techniques to get the best images even in direct sun. Plus an old habit saves my gear!
Several weeks ago, I bought myself a kayak. I've wanted one for years, but never bought one. Sure, I'd paddled a couple of times with other people's boats, but never owned one. Now I do it's allowing me a new way to engage with nature and my photography. Here it is - a Wilderness Systems... Continue Reading →
A couple of years ago, when I first saw photos of Royalston Falls in Royalston, MA, I knew I had to go see them for myself. For the longest time I thought they were on the Tully river, but it turns out that the watercourse is actually Falls Brook. Original, huh? Hey, I didn't name... Continue Reading →
I'd been meaning to get back here since the first time I explored this little swatch of conservation land. It contains the middle branch of the Piscataquog river and has some interesting aspects to it like a pond and some defunct bridges. Unfortunately the light wasn't overly cooperative and when the sun came out I... Continue Reading →
Crazy, huh? Spring is so...springy. The two Ws are just irresistible - wildflowers and waterfalls. I've shot these particular falls before, but after a big storm knocked branches and whole trees down so the cascades were a mess. When I saw fellow photographer Jeff Newcomer's recent post about Garwin falls, I saw they were clear... Continue Reading →

It has 3 branches (north, middle and south), runs for 57 miles with little interruption and its name translates from a... Continue Reading →
This year we've had so much rain that the waterfalls are still flowing mightily. Strange for this time of year when most streams, rivers and brooks are quite low. Makes for some fantastic photography though and of course I was out there. This is Mill Brook. Yeah, original huh? There is still a semi-active mill... Continue Reading →
Some from a nearby apple orchard. I particularly liked the juxtaposition of these two. Plus the light was great! Some watery views from my hike up Mt. Hale this past weekend. The light was direct sun and rather harsh and contrasty, so I did the best I could -
This year has been one of seriously heavy rain here in New England. Luckily where I live we escaped serious flooding, but still our rivers, brooks and streams are very high. Good for one thing - waterfalls!! Recently I took a good friend of mine to see some near me and got some decent shots.... Continue Reading →
