Trostle Pond & thoughts on color and b&w

  Turns out I shot a lot of photos at Trostle Pond the other morning.  And I was going through them in post, I stumbled upon a situation where I couldn’t decide how I’d best like to see the final product.  For me it happens like this: an image comes up on the monitor and […]


Simple Clicks – Autumn shoreline

View from the kayak a couple of weekends back, looking north up Lackawanna Lake towards Bullhead Bay.  The shoreline colors were just starting and are farther along now. I’ve always loved that high field in the distance, with the few solitary trees.  But I think my favorite part of this photo are those wispy, ethereal, […]


Simple Clicks – Mirror Morning

Mirrored-lake mornings like this are somewhat rare in my experience; the water only gets that intense glassy look now and then.  So I’m always pleased when I’m in a position to enjoy it.  These foggy morning won’t last too much longer now – autumn is nearing its peak and winter isn’t far behind…   Related […]


Simple Clicks – Blackbird in flight

  A morning outing at Fords Pond with Paul; it was the first time we’d been out shooting together in several months and the planets weren’t quite aligning for anything great.  I was shooting the reeds backlit by the rising sun, the fog on the water, and happened to catch this female Red-winged Blackbird in […]


Simple Clicks – Sunrise

A pair leftover from last September, from an early morning when I was on my way to Lackawanna State Park with the kayak.  Coming over the hill towards Bullhead Bay, the sun was lighting both the clouds and fog and I couldn’t help but throw the flashers on and pull over.  I wandered up and […]


Simple Clicks – foggy morning

A few from last autumn, almost a year old now.  I had the kayak out on Lake Lackawanna during a thick morning fog and couldn’t help but be mesmerized by the drifting tendrils and the way the color began to break through.

Cold but worth it

Sunday morning dawned cold and overcast, but after my success with the eagles the day before, I was already up and in the field.  Photography is like a drug and, when the shoots are successful, you want more.  And more.  Even if it means getting up at 0600 on a Sunday and bundling in four […]


Simple Clicks – the frozen marsh

This is one of those scenes I found that simply screamed to be rendered in black & white. Okay, so “screamed” is an exaggeration – it was more of a subtle statement. The frost on the reeds and grass vs the dark tones of the pines and water, it all came together really well. Despite […]


Morning at Kent Pond

Back to Kent Pond two mornings after my first visit, this time with a mind to shoot the pond itself against the backdrop of the Green Mountains – which were looking a bit more brown this particular morning, being sadly free of snow. But the sunrise was decent and the rising light side-lit Pico Mountain […]


Simple Clicks – Chittenden Reservoir Panorama

Just a last capture from Chittenden Reservoir on Thanksgiving morning.  I stopped back on the reservoir beach on my way to the car and shot a series of images hand-held.  An hour earlier, the only sunlit spot was on the very top of the mountain peak; now the light had filled in the whole western […]
