The sunset colors were not as intense as had been predicted but the after glow was nice. This is a thirty second long exposure taken from the shore of Suncook Lake in New Hampshire about twenty-five minutes after the sun went behind the mountains on the left side of the shot.

The late afternoon sun painted its glow across the foliage surrounding Campton Pond at the foot of the White Mountains in New Hampshire.

Sun Beams & Clouds
Another image from last Thursday's spectacular clouds. I was hoping for a nice bright sunset when I went to Crystal Lake. I had originally set up farther to the left and was focused on the illuminated part of the cloud rising high above the rest. When I took a walk around to check out other vantage points was when I first noticed the sun showing through on the left side of the scene. That was hidden behind trees during my earlier shots. Though not a bright red sunset, I will take it.
Fishing with Dad
Sometimes the best images are those you don’t plan to take. I came to this location to check out the sunset on Upper Suncook Lake. I wasn’t going to shoot it until I found this duo fishing from the boulders lining the shore.

The late afternoon autumn sun shines brightly on the trees and fading shore grasses on the estuary in Maine. The lack of a breeze on this warm afternoon left the water almost mirror like, catching the colors of the surrounding forest and Snowy Egret fishing in the shadows.
Rest in Color
It always feels odd to shoot a landscape image that includes tombstones. But the color in Smith Meetinghouse Cemetery this past weekend could not be ignored.

Late summer sunrise from atop Acadia’s Cadillac Mountain
Low tide on the Black River estuary brings out several species of water fowl. This early September morning the water was as smooth as glass as this Greater Snowy Egret took flight to escape the harassing nature of a Great Blue Heron that had moved out of the trees.
Clouds on the Pemigewasset River
Clouds and Reflections captured from the Eastside Road Bridge in early October. It had been raining a good part of the day When the clouds started showing signs of breaking up I took to the road in search of autumn colors and reflections. It was so humid on this day my camera lens fogged up when I pulled it from the camera bag. After taking this image I noticed fog was beginning to rise off the water as well.
Clouds on Lafayette
Storm cloud from the morning's rain cling to the summit of Mount Lafayette in New Hampshire's Franconia Notch, part of the White Mountain National forest.
We awoke the morning after Thanksgiving 2014 to the season's first snow fall. It had been seasonably warm that year and most of the waterways were still open in places and a dark depthness upon which the snowscape reflected.
