Back at the beginning of 2017, I decided that I would embark on a year-long project, to highlight one photograph each week and supply a short, simple blog about that photo.  The goal was to end with 52 photos that recapped my year of taking photos.  There were a few simple rules, or more specifically, guidelines.  The photo had to be taken during the week.  This was more of an exercise to force me to use my cameras every week, no matter where I was,...

This week finds me back home on Long Island enjoying some winter weather of our own.  A mid-December snowstorm has blanketed the area, creating some nice winter photography opportunities.   When snowstorms hit the island I like to head for the beaches.  The coupling of the coastal beach, traditionally associated with summer and the snowy landscape make for a lovely contradiction that do compliment each other.   The auburn colored sand, the warm light of a rising sun and blueish white of a fresh snow...

The first week of November finds me back home on Long Island and searching for fall foliage photos.  After spending most of October in New England I have become accustomed to viewing foliage at its absolute best.  Even if New England does not have a great foliage year there are still areas that are spectacular.  When I want to find good autumn colors on Long Island I strap my off-road bicycle to the back of my Jeep and grab my camera backpack...

I have finished October as I started it - in New England.  This time in Central Massachusetts.  More Specially, visiting my son at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester.  It was parents weekend and the social activity calendar was busy.  I did find some time on Saturday in the early AM for some landscape photography.  Not being familiar with the area, I hit Google and Google Maps in search of a nearby state park.  The fall foliage was in full...
