As the sun lowered itself past the horizon a peaceful calm came over the bay. I could hear the sea birds and waterfowl calling to one another while settling in for the night. The sun painted the sky with a beautiful pastel gradient of color that deepened with every second. I used my 6-stop neutral […]


I ventured out in the snow-covered ‘Pines’ this morning … after a little digging out. I just love what snow does to the landscape … its so different and exhilarating! Winter has become one of my favorite times of the year to photograph. With the sun lower to the horizon in winter we have extended […]


I’ve been hunting for a place where I could use my 6-stop ND filter to capture bubbles in motion and finally found a suitable place while scouting today. Bubbles are a natural occurrence found in Southern New Jersey Pineland’s streams. Prior attempts had been fun practice but the scenes were not quite what I had […]

Water Subjects – Part I Thinking about what types of subjects I am attracted too I would certainly need to include water near the top of my list. I have always loved photographing beside the water whether it’s a stream, lake, waterfall or ocean and I seek out scenes that include water. A moon child, […]


Part VI – The End On the way home my friend and I planned on stopping at the picturesque, red barn we had visited earlier in our adventure. We were also hoping to find and photograph a couple of abandoned houses we saw while following our caravan a few days before. This time the barn […]


Part V – Day Four On our last full day in the Adirondacks we were greeted with a dramatic light show. The fog and colors of sunrise changed quickly from one moment to the next keeping our shutters busy. Whiteface Mountain was exposed only for a short time before it was blanketed by the fog […]


Part IV – Day Three Continued In addition to the spots in my previous post, we visited some barns, a waterfall flume and the top of Whiteface Mountain on our third full day. On our way out of town that morning we went back to a barn we had seen the previous afternoon. Then after […]
