MACRO Magic!

23May14

On a recent trip to photograph some old farms, some branches caught my eye. I was attracted to the way rain drops clinged to them … all in a row. So, after shooting the buildings for a while I decided to attach my 100mm macro lens and play with the branches before they dried. Facing […]

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 […]


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.

While on a recent, South Jersey Camera Club trip to Chincoteague, Virginia one of the highlights for me was photographing before sunrise. The first image below can really be considered a night shot.

We saw something odd hanging out of one our birdhouses a couple of days ago when it was quite hot. We looked through the binoculars but couldn’t make it out so I went outside to take a closer look and found out it was a Northern Flying Squirrel. Since they are nocturnal (rodents) it is […]


My favorite waterfall shots from a recent trip to Smoky Mountain National Park are those shot along Roaring Fork Motor Trail on that first, misty/drizzly day described in the previous post. The greens were astonishing and the moss on the rocks seemed neon and surreal. It was easy to get the silky water effect with […]


Frozen Fun

08Feb12

Catskill Winter Photographers Weekend I Along with the company of 15 participants in last weekend’s photo tour we found no snow … but the ice was nice! I had fun looking for and photographing some of the frozen subjects we found along our way. Bastion Falls (which is below Kaaterskill Falls) looks different every time […]


One of my favorite shoots on our Canaan Valley trip was to a small lake just in time to capture morning’s first light. The sunlight, autumn foliage and reflection came together to create a stunning scene. I couldn’t stop shooting! Aside from the big picture there were many abstracts available in the still reflection. I […]
