Valley Barn, Champlain Valley, Vermont

I've been travelling a bit lately and off again tomorrow morning, but I was able to slip out for sunset last night.  This is from about a half hour after the sun dropped; sometimes it pays to wait around for a little while.

 Thanks for stopping by!

A Slot of Light

The sandstone slots of Arizona and Utah are unique - both from each other and from everything else.  Dropping into one of these from the suffocating heat and blinding light of the desert to find a cool sanctuary of breathtaking light and form is magical.  I never tire of the experience.

Breaking Dawn
Acadia National Park

One of my favorite times to shoot the Maine coast is when low tide and the first light of day coincide.  In the longer days of summer, dawn is way early, ungodly early, especially if I've been staring at the stars the previous night (Acadia is a rare dark-sky location in the east.)  The benefit of this early hour is having the rock and surf all to myself - ahh, the solitude;  except on this morning three enormous cruise ships slipped quietly by in the twilight and into Bar Harbor.  It was more than a little strange. 

Fortunately,  the ships were well past as the sun rose.  Low tide exposes wonderful shapes and textures in the granite.  The challenge is finding an arrangement of light, surf and rock while scrambling in slippery surf line.

Thanks for taking a look, share if you'd like!

Room With A View

It was in the nineties on the day I hiked down to this ruin and the south facing route, baking in the afternoon sun, felt twenty degrees hotter.  But in the shade under the alcove it was comfortable, quiet and peaceful.  It's unclear what this ruin was used for, by whom and when, but its setting tucked into the cliff face is stunning.  I can only imagine what the ancients felt and thought of this space, but I found it awe inspiring and humbling.

Cavallo Bianco, Val d'Orcia, Italy

Val d'Orcia is one of the most enchanting spots in Tuscany.  A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it's home to world-class wines, perfect hilltop towns and a landscape one only expects to find in the work of Renaissance painters.  

Well before dawn, I waited in an olive orchard overlooking the valley where I hoped to capture the day's first light touching the tops of the famous gently rolling hills, cypress rows and classic villas.  In the gentle light of twilight, I was surrounded by the sounds of the campagna waking below me - pheasants cackling from their roost, roosters announcing the day, sheep, goats, rabbits stirring in their pens and this white horse on his morning forage.  It was one of the most serene and peaceful minutes one could imagine.  Wanting to never forget the experience, I closed my eyes in the gentle breeze  for a moment to etch the sounds and smells into my memory.  And when I opened my eyes, this happened.

Sounds cool, Hugh.  Hope you get back east this summer.  My parents have a place in Boothbay and I'm over visiting quite a bit, so maybe we can hook up then.  Winter here has been ridiculous - temps around zero and lots of snow all the time.  I'm off to Moab in a few weeks to help a buddy run a photo workshop.  Can't wait for the desert!

Water From Stone
Vermilion Cliffs National Monument, Arizona

The Paria Canyon - Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness Cliffs Area contains some of the most other-worldly landscapes one could imagine. It takes a bit of doing to find your way back in here as the sand tracks are largely unmarked and any services are non-existent.  But the reward for the effort is awe-inspiring.  I'll never forget the night a spent here sleeping on the desert floor under the Milky Way.

Where It Bends
Zion National Park, Utah, USA

It's finally getting to be spring around here in the northeast and with the change, I can feel the wanderlust rising.  This photo is from last November's travels around southern Utah and northern Arizona.  Even though a big blow stripped Zion of much of its colorful foliage just before I arrived, the two days I spent in The Narrows were great.

This bend in the the river just before the walls tighten up is a pretty popular spot.  The cottonwoods weren't as full as they could be, but they held good color and canyon walls back-lit the leaves with some very cool light.  

Thanks for taking a look.

Fall 'n Reflection
Acadia National Park, Maine

Yep, it's still winter, still snowing and I'm still tired of it.  So I went into the LR time machine in search of warmer weather and anything but white on white.  From last fall in Acadia National Park...

Love the bright and subdued colors. They work well together. I have been receiving weather reports from family and friends from back home (NY & VT) about the snow and ice they have had in the last couple of days and months. But it makes for some beautiful pics.

Introduction

I'm a photographer living in Vermont and shoot mostly landscapes and nature  - but anything else is fair game, too.  I've always loved being outdoors and doing outdoor "things' - hiking, camping, canoeing, fly fishing, bird hunting, mountain biking and the like.  For much of my life a camera was simply a way to remember the occasion and sometimes it just seemed to be in the way.  Only recently has photography photography became one more reason to be outdoors and more and more it has become the reason.  I wish that I had discovered this passion much earlier in life - the things and places I could have shot!
