Shades Of Green

01Jun14

You just have to love the brilliant greens of spring … too bad they are so short-lived. Going north to the Catskills in the spring helps to extend the bright colors for me. There, spring is usually 2 weeks behind the warming and progression at home. Everything seemed especially green this year … maybe it […]


Spring waterfalls are surely one of Mother Nature’s beautiful gifts. Leading photo weekends in the Catskills of New York State, I’ve spent a lot of time shooting them. The first waterfall in this series however, was shot in the Delaware Water Gap area of Pennsylvania, in early spring. I had been there before but bright […]


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 […]


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 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. We had a lot of fun finding landscapes and interesting buildings along our way. […]


My 12th Time

21Jun13

Looking back through my image folders from the Catskills I figured out that the recent spring Catskills Photographer’s Weekend was my 12th visit. When my friend, Rich became the owner of the Glen Falls House Resort in Round Top, NY years ago I had the idea for the photography weekends, and began recruiting my fellow […]


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 […]


Having been to the Catskills to lead Photo Weekends so often, it is challenging to find something new each time. On this most recent trip I had two of my friends ride up with me, a day early to scout for the weekend tour. The company made it all the more enjoyable and we stopped […]
