Simple Clicks – Vermont in black & white

Another little foray into the world of black & white.  Every now and then the mood strikes me.  Or the light looks right, or I feel nostalgic for my old A-1 and some HP5+.  Whatever the reason it’s good to work in a different medium sometimes and amid my scattered shooting, three shots come out […]

Simple Clicks – Quechee Gorge

Quechee Gorge – it’s kind of a Vermont tourist trap, in a very low key, natural way.  The name sums it up – it’s a gorge, a carved slot between the mountains with a river flowing through it.  And people come to see it, stare down from the bridge, hike down to the bottom, sometimes […]

Simple Clicks – VINS raptors

During my Vermont trip we made a quick stop at VINS one afternoon.  VINS – the Vermont Institute of Natural Science – is one of those organizations that does simply amazing work.  They are primarily a bird research and rehabilitation facility, taking in avian species ranging from common songbirds to large raptors that have suffered […]

Simple Clicks – morning in the marsh

Morning in West Rutland Marsh, after some birding.  The locals used to just call this “the swamp” and nobody thought much about it.  But a lot has changed since then, I suspect largely through the efforts of the Rutland County Audubon Society.  Building the boardwalk in the marsh was a huge step forward; on this […]

Simple Clicks – Wild Iris

  Just a simple click of a wild iris growing near Thundering Brook, on the back side of Kent Pond.  I was checking out the boardwalk in the faint hope of spotting a moose somewhere in this more remote area.  The sky had changed to near total overcast, which changed my focus to details.  There […]

Simple Clicks – butterflies

Captured this image a while back along a muddy bank on Lackawanna Lake. These are Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterflies and they are congregating on the mud to collect minerals. It’s the butterfly equivalent of taking a vitamin supplement and is a common behavior. It as a bit of a challenge getting the kayak into position […]

Simple Clicks – pines on the edge of the marsh

Amid working with wildlife, I started shooting some landscapes from the kayak.  It’s difficult for several reasons: carrying & working with multiple lenses, trying to frame shots from an unusual angle, the near-constant motion of the boat.  At this time I had only brought the 75-300mm and 14mm lenses and really, the 14mm was a […]

Simple Clicks – Ducklings

Springtime, baby animals, yeah we’re still working on this theme.  Out on Lower Lake two weeks back, there were over thirty ducklings scrambling around the marsh after their mothers.  They’re such adorable little balls of fluff that I couldn’t resist making a few images.  So enjoy!

Simple Clicks – a simple mix

It’s a simple mix of common birds, but even when that’s all I’m able to find in the field, it doesn’t mean that I won’t still make photos of them.  Each has its own personality and character and far be it from me to scorn almost any critter that’s willing to post in front of […]
