Multiple compositions, like leading lines or S curves, provide an excellent starting point for impactful images. Waterfalls come in all shapes and sizes and can be found anywhere in the world.

The second week of October finds me in Vermont for a second time this month.  This time I am working as a hiking/photography guide for Great Freedom Adventures (www.greatfreedomadventures.com).  That means I will be spending my day hours walking the hills and fields of Connecticut River Valley.  Guiding people from all over the world though the hills of Vermont  is fun and you get to meet new friends.  Most of my guiding is done in the late-morning early afternoon leaving the...
