The Roving Photographer


Not quite right

This image – and the others in this post – are almost two months old.  I shot them while out in the kayak, on a trip to Promised Land State Park.  Amid my usual search for birds, I made a point to shoot some landscapes with the intention of adding them to my “Black & […]

Beaver Pond

I was able to get a few new sites in during my time in Vermont; this was the first of them, Beaver Pond, near Pico Mountain.  As you can see, it’s not much of a pond – really just a wet meadow, cut by a pair of creeks.  That’s how it shows up in the […]

Looking for Spring

Although this week marks the beginning of astronomical Spring, you sure can’t tell it from the weather. The temperatures in Northeastern Pennsylvania have been a good 10-15 degrees below normal for the daytime high, with the nights correspondingly colder than normal. To add insult to injury, most days are largely cloudy and windy, more reminiscent […]

Fresh snowfall

Sunday morning finally gave me an actual, cloud-free sunrise, coupled with maybe a half-inch of fresh snow – perfect conditions to get out and shake off some of the cobwebs that keep building during these seemingly endless stretches of cold, bland weather.

Best of 2012

These are my favorite images from the past year. Some are simple, others more complex; most have been seen on here before. It’s easy to forget about good shots from a few months ago, and fulfilling to go back and look through tagged images to re-discover them. Pulling this collection together, I feel better about […]

Simple Clicks – Gettysburg

As I mentioned before, the evening light in Gettysburg was just perfect and I was able to grab an hour or so to really work with the battlefield from a photographic standpoint.  These are a few of the shots that I wasn’t able to fit into the last post, but wanted to share.  Related Posts:Gettysburg […]

Thanksgiving morning in Vermont

A surprising number of my holidays start this way – out in the cold, roving around a lake or through the woods, usually by myself.  And maybe that sounds a little undesirable  but really it isn’t.  There’s something nice about starting the day off peacefully.  And I love being outside at sunrise when the world is […]

Searching for autumn – panoramas

As promised, a few panoramas from my search for autumn last weekend.  The longer I shoot panoramas, the more I enjoy it, the wider view, the greater possible detail that I’m able to capture.  In the one above, I blotched the actual whole-tree version I had tried to shoot – too much distortion.  But in […]

Searching for autumn

Autumn, as a season and as the elements that make it up, is fleeting. Transitory, arriving with subtly until suddenly you realize it’s really here, and then just a couple of weeks later it’s passed, always fading out faster than you remember. Then the hillsides are brown and it’s simply winter, or pre-winter, or whatever […]

Lost in the fog

Spent Saturday morning up at Lackawanna State Park, lost in one of the thickest fogs I can remember having seen in a while. The lost part is, of course, more about my state of mind than any lack of physical orientation, which I figure is a better kind of lost all around. It’s comforting in […]
