Last July I went back up to Brownfield, Maine to do some camping with friends. The stars were as gorgeous as ever up there. I created a bunch of shots, including some really long exposures of star trails, with a fire roaring at our campsite. It did an amazing job of illuminating the trees inContinue reading “Stargazing in the deep woods”
Spent an afternoon hiking around Ke’e Beach and the Nā Pali Coast on the Kalalau Trail. Incredible sights to be seen as this part of the island is a rainforest
During a once in a lifetime experience, I was given the opportunity to explore the island of Kauai in Hawaii. While there some friends and I made it out to Kalalau lookout on the Northwest side of the island. We stayed just long enough for the sun to set and a brilliant display of stars toContinue reading “Kalalau Lookout. The End of the World.”

As a native New Englander, I’ve spent a decent amount of time in the mountains of New Hampshire, Vermont, and Western Massachusetts. I’ve been hiking and camping since I was just a small kid. Of course, the Appalachian Mountain Range isn’t the tallest or most extreme in the world, but they’re still amazing and IContinue reading “Hiking Joffre Lakes in British Columbia”
A few introductory words… At 30 years old, I’ve had the opportunity to do a bit of traveling in my day. I’ve seen many beautiful places and met some sensational human beings. That being said, I can honestly say that New Hampshire is still one of the most brilliant locations I’ve ever ventured through. AContinue reading “The National Park Service 100th Anniversary and an overnight hike on Mt. Carrigain”

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known. – Carl Sagan Star trail photography really fascinates me. While it looks like the stars are all moving at different speeds, what we’re really looking at is the rotation of the earth on its axis. The axis point is the spot where you can see little toContinue reading “Waiting to be known”
In early December 2015, a few friends and myself ascended mt. chocorua on a relatively mild day (at the base of the mountain anyway). As we hiked up a trail from the kancamagus highway, the temperature quickly dropped as expected! We spent a bit of time in the late afternoon at the summit, the temperature hoveredContinue reading “Sweeping Snow on Mt Chocorua”
During a recent road trip to New Orleans (yeah, I drove from Massachusetts to New Orleans, I know I’m crazy), my friend Phil and I had the pleasure of taking an Airboat tour of a local bayou about 45 minutes south of NOLA. On our trip, our captain who is a local cajun who’sContinue reading “Tourin’ the Bayou. An ecosystem in danger.”
Another shot taken from Mt. Webster in Crawford Notch, New Hampshire. Way down below you can see a railroad bridge that really adds perspective to the altitude of the hike. One of the most beautiful times to see the mountainscape is just before sundown.
Went for a beautiful hike up Mt. Webster in Crawford Notch, New Hampshire. It’s one of the lesser known mountains in the presidential range within New Hampshire. It’s not the tallest peak, but the view from the summit is pretty amazing. The trail we took was part of the Appalachian Trail. The small strips youContinue reading “Atop Mt. Webster”
when you get out on the trails early, it’s a great feeling.
