12.1.2015 Hills, Valleys and Monadnock

I enjoy this view of Mount Monadnock in New Hampshire seen from Enfield Lookout in Quabbin Park quite a bit.  I’ve shared a few views in the past and probably will do so again.  The layers of hills between this … Continue reading

08.08.2015 Mount Monadnock from Enfield Lookout-take two

This is more what I was thinking my previous attempt should have looked like.  I’m still thinking that I’d like to get a clear shot with no trees and after the light was over I think I found another perspective … Continue reading

08.03.2015 Mount Monadnock from Enfield Lookout

I posted out of order so this is a Mount Monadnock Prequel, I guess.  Taken one day earlier from a vantage point several miles to the south in Quabbin Park, there is similar light to Sunday’s post and a lot … Continue reading

08.02.2015 Monadnock Dawn

I’ve photographed Monadnock from this viewpoint often over the years.  I’ve only seen it with alpenglow once and this quiet simple view seems to be what I am meant to see.  Some fog in the valleys and a soft light … Continue reading

05.24.2015 Sunrise over Mount Monadnock

Why do I get up so early every day? Well, the main reason is that Murphy expects his breakfast at 4, but I have always been an early riser since I had a paper route when I was young beyond … Continue reading

09.22.2014 Monadnock and North Quabbin

Or maybe it should be the other way.  Either way, this was a surprise this morning and I almost missed it.  When I arrived the sky was already fading and the sun had just popped over the horizon.  Not a … Continue reading

12.19.2012 Mount Monadnock and North Quabbin

At some point I will post a couple of images from my New Hampshire trip in early October, but here are two from October 20.  For a nice change, we had decent foliage this year here in Western Massachusetts and … Continue reading

05.19.2022 Learned a New Trick

In the past I’ve ham-handed my attempts at flare removal.  Some have turned out reasonably okay and others not so much.  I recently learned a method involving an inverted curves adjustment that does a nice job.  Of course, this image … Continue reading

04.12.2022 Why I rise so early

Well, Bentley needing to go out at 3 a.m. has something to do with it but I’ve always got out of bed early anyway. Mornings like this are a reward for being a good dog dad. This is Pack Monadnock … Continue reading

11.03.2021 How Green (and yellow, orange, and red) was my Valley

North Quabbin at Sunrise looking toward New Hampshire and Pack Monadnock Mountain. Our foliage is winding down, but this view up the valley from New Salem Lookout is always a bit later than most of our area for color.  I … Continue reading
