Stars above the Mountains

“If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding Caught in all, the stars are hiding That’s when something wild calls you home” Had the opportunity to do some snowshoeing in the mountains of Colorado yesterday with some friends (my first time!). After a day hike at over 10,000 feet above sea level, we returnedContinue reading “Stars above the Mountains”

Nā Pali Coast on the island of Kauai, Hawaii

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

Kalalau Lookout. The End of the World.

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.”

The National Park Service 100th Anniversary and an overnight hike on Mt. Carrigain

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”

The Salty Beach Tomatoes

A common sight on any New England beach is the beach tomato plant. This is actually an invasive species of Rose (Rosa_rugosa) that originates from Asia, but now occupies just about every beach along the coast of the north eastern United States! The rose hips resemble that of small tomatoes, but definitely shouldn’t be eaten!

Looking into infinity

CALVIN: If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently. HOBBES: How so? CALVIN: Well, when you look into infinity, you realize that there are more important things than what people do all day. HOBBES: We spent our day looking under rocks in the creek. CALVIN:Continue reading “Looking into infinity”

Waiting to be known

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”

Star Trails as the Storm Rolls in…

Over the past week the moon has been high and it’s been bright out – right up until the summer solstice with the full moon last night. Prints can be purchased at Midnight Shift Photography As usual, I took a late night stroll with my camera near the World War II lookout towers at GooseberryContinue reading “Star Trails as the Storm Rolls in…”

Tourin’ the Bayou. An ecosystem in danger.

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.”

Golden Peaks

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.

Atop Mt. Webster

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”

The Mountains are calling, and I must go.

The mountains are calling and I must go. — John Muir One of my all time places to unwind, relax, and enjoy the spectacle of nature. Lovewell Pond in Fryeburg, Maine. Gazing right at the white mountains in New Hampshire.       

What you can touch, smell, see, and hear is less than one-millionth of reality. My exploration of Infrared Photography.

Up to the Twentieth Century, reality was everything humans could touch, smell, see, and hear. Since the initial publication of the chart of the electromagnetic spectrum, humans have learned that what they can touch, smell, see, and hear is less than one-millionth of reality… – R. Buckminster Fuller That’s one hell of a concept, right?Continue reading “What you can touch, smell, see, and hear is less than one-millionth of reality. My exploration of Infrared Photography.”
