Clouds have the potential to add what’s missing from a scene. And, sometimes it’s the clouds that play a leading role in landscape imagery. If not a leading role, they are very often a strong supporting one. For me, clouds can make or break an image. I look for cloud balance when framing. Clouds that […]


Winter In B&W

21Feb23

In the winter I like to challenge myself to produce a few black & white images. Often times the scenes seem monochromatic right from the start. Snow lends some white often contrasting elegantly with other elements in a scene. It helps define the contours of the mountains. Trees also look beautiful in winter, and in […]


Here’s a selection of recent captures I’ve been collecting for this post. It is said that sunrise and sunset imagery is cliché. I ask you … how can anything as beautiful as sunrise and sunset be considered so? If they are cliché they remain enjoyable by many nevertheless. Each day is unique, offering a chance […]


Our winter weather started in November and we still have a couple of months to go. And, according to the weather guy, March is usually our snowiest month. Here are some landscape images from the first half of winter that feature the beautiful snow covered peaks. It’s a continuous cycle. It snows, some of it […]


I’ve had the images in this post on standby. It includes some of the local cabins, barns and mining buildings within my radius. The images were all made in the later half of 2022 and I’ve been saving them, waiting until I had enough for this blog set. Some of these are abandoned, some are […]

I try to keep up with with what I capture by processing and posting what I like. Now I’ll move on to tackling other images from recent captures … some set aside for particular […]


I’ve been busy reviewing and processing more fall images that interest me. As I’ve mentioned before, my blog acts as an archive of my work. Just some of what I post here will end up in my yearly favorites gallery and this is a record of those that do and those that don’t. It was […]


It’s hard to beat driving down back roads lined with glorious autumn color! Fond leaf-peeping memories go back to childhood in Western New York Sate. Coming home from Gramma’s house, who lived about an hour away, we stopped to gather a bouquet of autumn maple branches. It was Mom’s idea that I could take them […]


I haven’t posted many autumn landscapes featuring mountains yet, but that isn’t because I didn’t shoot them! I’m actually a bit overwhelmed (and pleased) by how much I have to go through! As usual the mountain peaks started out bare, and during the first part of October received some snow … a little dusting at […]
