Spring Rush

22May20

In the mountains nothing calls out ‘spring’ quite so exuberantly as the streams, rivers and waterfalls! Swollen rivers rush melted snow downstream to get to where it is needed. Always careful of my footing it’s exhilarating to stand beside a roaring river, to witness its power, through sight and sound. And waterfalls are in their […]


The waterfalls pictured here are from Spearfish Canyon, in the Black Hills of South Dakota. On this spring day clouds provided diffused light, eliminating harsh contrast and helping me achieve the silky water affect. Located close to one another, it was easy to get to all three falls in one afternoon. I found the vantage […]


Last weekend a kind friend invited me on a photography outing to two locations not easily found. It was a fun time sharing the adventure with seven other photographers. I had seen photos and learned about the first location, Mystic Falls almost a year ago and had been wanting to photograph it since. The directions […]


This post is a continuation of my previous post ‘A Tour Through Time’ since it also includes local spots I shared with my visiting friend. Of course different seasons offer very different opportunities. At the time of year pictured here, snow-capped mountains, fast moving streams and spring greens dominate. Now as the snow on the […]


Iceland I

12Oct14

There is a lot going on right now and processing images from my September 20-30 trip to Iceland has been a bit slow. A little over-whelming, I just didn’t know where to start. Perhaps I needed to let them marinate a little! I couldn’t decide on how I wanted to present them … by day […]


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 […]

Displaying my work this way has been a 1o year tradition, dating back to my digital beginnings in 2003. The pages are easy to navigate by clicking on the ‘first/next photo’ link. […]


Sunday was a shorter day since the end of the tour and check-out was following lunch. We started out at 7:30 am with some sun and clouds with the clouds increasing as the day progressed. We headed to Bastion Falls which is roadside in Palenville. The falls are usually busy with tourists but since we […]


Here are some photos from the Catskill’s Spring Photo Weekend I led from Friday, June 3rd through Sunday, the 5th. We had a great group of 15 and were blessed with cool but sunny Spring weather. I traveled up a day early to scout with our other leader, Matt and came up with a few […]


I could still hear the rushing sound of the waterfalls while working on this collection of images shot at Rickett’s Glen State Park. Here I preferred the horizontal versions as they show not just the waterfalls but surrounding area. In an attempt to provide a sense of place I used a wide-angle lens for most […]
