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.
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 […]
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.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
When I posted about my black & white landscape project, I loaded it up with photos and still had some left over that I wanted to share. So here’s another batch of them. No particular separation; some of these, like the one above, I really like a lot. It just didn’t fit in with the […]
Sometimes projects come about in quiet, roundabout ways. This one first came into existence after I read an article in Outdoor Photographer a couple of months back. It planted the seeds with the usual, “Hey, I can do that” thought. Unlike many such ideas, this one took root. I actually started fostering it, working with […]
I stopped off at Lackawanna State Park last Thursday evening. It was one of those nights when I didn’t have any expectations but rather was looking forward to some quiet time outside. It was a beautiful evening, the air was cool, the autumn colors intensifying, and frankly I didn’t care what images I came home […]
