Interlude While processing my images from the Adirondacks is taking some time … please enjoy this interlude of peak autumn color. These were shot on the 3rd full day of the trip and just seemed to go together because of the colors. The mountain across Connery Pond in the first two images is Whiteface Mountain, […]


Part III – Between Schroon Lake & Lake Placid Our first full day in the Adirondacks was spent around the Schroon Lake area. We woke before sunrise and just as our B&B host had warned us, it was foggy (before we explained to her that we ‘like’ fog). On this particular morning it was so […]


Part II – Warming Up We arrived at our first destination at Schroon Lake in the afternoon, met up with the rest of our group of six and checked into our B&B. We didn’t want to waste any time so we quickly headed out to our first location, which included a short hike to a […]


Part I – Introduction I’m just back from an awesome photography trip in one of my favorite places, the Adirondacks. I shared the adventure with friends and we were blessed with a good percentage of great weather and brilliant fall color.

The Pinelands […]


Last weekend I met some friends before sunrise for a shoot at a nearby spot. We knew the moon would be setting just after sunrise and when we got there it was hiding behind the clouds. It was dark out and I liked the way the bright moon lit up the cedar silhouettes across the […]


My annual ‘Spring Catskills Photographers Weekend & Tour’ went quite well. I was thrilled to see that spring in the Catskills was late and a few weeks behind the fleeting spring colors at home. There were just 4 of us scouting for the weekend tour and we stopped along this meadow. This spot is a […]


Some images just cry out for black & white conversion as did the images below. There was actually very little difference between the color versions and the final images. Hearing that the forecast called for morning fog one weekend not too long ago, I ventured into the pines on both Saturday and Sunday. Having captured […]


The term cliché is used to describe a phrase, expression, or idea that has been overused to the point of losing its intended force or novelty, especially when at some time it was considered distinctively forceful or unique. It is a somewhat common opinion that sunrise and sunset images are subject to this definition. And, […]
