Sat down tonight with some nostalgic tunes from my high school days (think Senses Fail, Finch, and more). Thought about all the fun I used to have jamming out until the sun came up, creating image manipulations and digital paintings. It’s been well over a decade since I got lost in photoshop just creating artContinue reading “The shooting star that destroyed us”
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”
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! DownloadContinue reading “The Salty Beach Tomatoes”
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”

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”
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…”
When humanity fades, nature will begin again.
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”
Late one sunny afternoon in March, while going for a drive, I had noticed some extremely dark clouds rolling in from the west. I made it to Sakonnet Point in Little Compton, Rhode Island, where I waited for the clouds to hit. I didn’t know it at the time, but those angry little clouds wereContinue reading “Stormy Skies over Sakonnet Point”
Spent some time driving around late one night after a snowstorm in southern New England. The snow had ended and sky cleared up just after sundown so all the snow froze on the trees. An absolutely gorgeous night. This was taken right on the border of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, in Adamsville.
Spent some time with some of my Automattic colleagues exploring the Canyon Resort in Park City, Utah. Can’t get enough of the sky, especially when one can experiment with so many different foreground elements.
Spending some time out at Horseneck Beach late one night. Horseneck is a great spot that offers up some great sand dunes with those traditional New England beach fences that I love. Edits: brightness, contrast, color adj., and added noise. Meta: 18mm @ f2.8, 25 seconds, ISO 6400.
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.
Capturing another long exposure at Sakonnet Point in Little Compton, Rhode Island!
Today I saw / heard some of the most severe thunderstorms I’ve ever experienced in my life. I was working on my couch mid-afternoon with the windows open listening to some thunder in the distance. Suddenly a bright flash struck above the building across from my apartment. It was so close I felt a waveContinue reading “After the Storm”
