Covered bridges in winter

Following my (freezing) visit to West Rutland Marsh, I drove out to Proctor and through the old town, past the buildings where I worked summers while in high school and college, and on out the back roads to the Gorham Bridge, one of several remarkable wooden covered bridges in the area. Gorham Bridge has always […]


West Rutland Marsh in winter

  I’ve shared my visits to West Rutland Marsh over the past few years and talked about how wonderful this location is, so unlike any other place I’ve found, with it’s boardwalk out into the marsh itself providing a unique and intimate access to an environment that is almost impossible to reach otherwise.  Even in […]


In the snow

Although my visit to Kent Pond began under an overcast sky, it deteriorated to snow within an hour.  Having tromped through the snow by the boat launch, over the river (creek) and through the woods, I had returned to the Jeep and took a ride around behind the pond, and ended up coming back over the […]


Kent Pond in winter

I drove to Vermont for Thanksgiving this year, timing it just right so that I spent the first four hours of my evening journey covering 2.5 hours worth of highway in the midst of a heavy snowstorm.  Fun times!  (Eventually I gave up and finished the journey the next morning, which was definitely a smart […]


Simple Clicks – Hickory Run in winter

A few from this past winter – early February to be exact.  I drove down to Hickory Run State Park with the idea that the various creeks, or “runs” as they’re called down there, would be particularly scenic amid the ice and snow.  I trudged through quite a bit of deep snow to reach these […]


Simple Clicks – Fresh snowfall panorama

Vertical panoramas are tricky.  You need a narrow area of interest, something that will fit in the short dimension of the final composition.  Perhaps more importantly, you need enough “stuff” to fill all that vertical space, and preferably stuff that is meaningful and worth the pixels.  In this case, the image came about from my […]


Simple Clicks – Twilight

Twilight on the lake, with the ice still there.  This is from about 15-minutes before the photos in my last post, while I was warming up to the scene.  Dropped the camera into Daylight white balance to get this look, which is really pretty true to the scene – it was very blue for a […]


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.

Winter, unexpectedly – panoramas

While shooting my unexpected winter landscapes at Promised Land State Park, I made a few panoramas as well.  No surprise there.  And several of them came out well – I’m very pleased with them, perhaps even more so than the single-frame images, which just don’t capture the feel of this morning the same way. This […]


Winter, unexpectedly

Driving out for my third eagling expedition (where the feeder shots in the last post came from), I was surprised to find the landscape along the highway blanketed in a layer of new snow.  Scranton was bare when I left – we’d had a few flurries overnight but nothing that stuck. But a mere fifteen […]
