This gallery contains recent works from my journey that may, or may not, make into a more permanent collection. If a piece "stands the test of time" it may move forward. This section gives me an opportunity to display work from recent excursions or events that I have had an opportunity to photograph. You and I can both judge the result!
The next few shots are from the Fuller Gardens, North Hampton, NH. A bit of an experiment with some close up work.
The next 5 shots are from Choate Island, Ipswich, Massachusetts. To the locals, this is also known as Hoggs Island. The property is part of the Crane Estate, and is managed by the Trustees of Reservations. I had never had an opportunity to get out there, so the opportunity to see this place up close was quite a thrill.
North of Fryeburg, Maine, along Route 113, which heads north toward Evans Notch along the New Hampshire border, is one of the most scenic and peaceful areas of the White Mountains. Less people, less travelled, harder to get to…here are a couple shots from last Saturday
The early morning in the mountains can be magical, especially in the fall. The changing light reflects the moods of the mountains, as captured in the attached photos. In the first one the fog refuses to give up the hold on the valley as the sun rises higher in the morning sky. Just down the street from this shot is one of my favorite abandoned barns...I could see the sun way up the road, but the fog hung in there. (I always worry that the barn will be gone the next time I come by as there is a for sale sign on the property.) I have shot the barn many times, in many different seasons. The first shot is in the fog. I waited for the fog to lift for the added shots...
The next 3 shots were taken over several days in early February 2016 after a snow storm and cold spell.
