Another year comes to a close. It's only natural to look back at my photographic efforts of the last twelve months. My focus here will be on my successes. Those rare instances when I get it right - in my opinion, of course. This past year was a busy one with lots of travel. A late summer trip to Europe, winter in Key West, Florida and three trips to the Maine Coast. Mix in several trips to other New England...

On this particular outing, the leaves...Read more

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...Read more

My autumn always kicks off with a trip to Vermont's Northeast Kingdom the first week of October. This region located as its name suggests in the very top northeast corner of the state. This region is home to some of the states highest elevations and some of its earliest fall color. The first week of October is usually...Read more
