06.13.2020 Fungal Fire

A little abstract fungus something on a warm sunny day in New England. Ganoderma tsugae, along with G. lucidum, are herbal mushrooms used for a variety of applications.  I am not an herbalist or a mycologist so that’s all I … Continue reading

05.18.2020 Cascade Swirl

Most of the wider view compositions in this stretch of the brook I have already done several times leaving more intimate portions to be discovered.  I had never noticed this swirl before.  I tried an angle from below but found … Continue reading

The first composition from my shoot at Dean Brook on Friday. Initially this was to be black and white but I decided the combination of colors worked better. It looks quiet and meditative but you heard what it really sounded … Continue reading

04.18.2020 Saturday Splash

On the lower right of yesterday’s waterfall, in a gap on the ridge, the water was making quite a splash.  It’s a chaotic little cascade and I thought it interesting.  Not quite as flashy as the whole cascade but a … Continue reading

Another that got overlooked.  I only made this one exposure and at first glance I wasn’t impressed.  But I decided to follow Michael Scandling‘s lead (if you aren’t following Mike’s posts you are missing some fine work, abstract and otherwise) … Continue reading

03.24.2020 I think it’s Tuesday

I’ve only been in to work on days when nobody else will be around.  Labor distancing, I guess, for almost two weeks.  It’s become so I am not sure of the day any more so have to look down in … Continue reading

03.21.2020-2 Is this it?

Is this the last of this season’s ice images?  It could be.  Spring has arrived and, although we’ve had some notable nor’easters in April, this year seems headed for warmer weather ahead. So this may be the last as we … Continue reading
