11.29.2020 Another view of Mount Monadnock

The distance to Mount Monadnock in NH appears a little more realistic from this spot in Shelburne, MA. A horse is a horse of course, of course. The mountain is the one to the left.  I believe in the center … Continue reading

05.27.2015 The pinks get their due too

After making the image of the Yellow Lady’s Slipper the other day, I found this nice pair of Pink Lady’s Slippers (Cypripdium acaule).  They are more abundant here but also not as easily isolated.  This pair made it a bit … 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

02.23.2015 The Patten Redux w/Nuclear Sunrise

This is a similar but different image from that which I posted back in October.  Again, sorting through files I decided to give this a go as it includes the sun which I had avoided in the previous composition seen … Continue reading

10.15.2014 Subdued View

I mentioned yesterday that I had a spot in mind for sunrise near High Ledges.  This is the spot.  I was there in time, but I am not happy with the images.  For the most part, the sun looks awful.  … Continue reading

10.14.2014 A couple of early views

For the last day of my vacation the weather presented me with the proverbial pea soup of fog.  It was so thick that I almost stayed home and, as I drove through it, I wished I had.  But my plan … Continue reading
