Vermont Fall Colors

Vermont’s fall colors have been off the charts this 2016. From Stowe to Groton see these photos and video of the autumn wonders.

Shooting Kettle Pond

Kettle Pond is an iconic landscape for Vermont Photography. The best location to shoot is Owls Head Overlook.

Sea Caves in Burlington, VT???

Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t Vermont two states or a country away from the ocean?  You’ve either got to drive up through Canada or speed threw New Hampshire and Maine to see the Atlantic.  Don’t even ask about the Pacific.  So, how did sea caves end up right next to downtown Burlington.  And…

Winter birding in the backyard

Being a snowboarder and photographer brings mixed feelings about snow.  One part of me wants to make more turns in the pow-pow (powdery snow), while the other part is ready for water to flow and animals to come out.  On the weekdays, when a few hours on the mountain aren’t possible, I like to shoot…

Found an ice cave in my backyard

Sometimes adventures are right out the back door.  Blizzard 2015 was fairly weak for us in Vermont (only 6+ inches of snow), but it inspired me to run around the yard with camera in hand. Admittedly, this is not a human-sized ice cave.  If one was a rabbit, one would find this ice stalagmite impressive.  With…

It has been too long

5 years is too long to go between posts.  Much has happened in that time.  I took a job developing technology for the automotive industry in Burlington, Vermont.  And I hate to say that I have been living in this beautiful state taking photos on my iPhone.  What a photography failure I have been of…

Virginia Beach

I was born and bred in Virginia Beach, VA and couldn’t have this blog going without saying something about my hometown.  As it relates to travel, Virginia Beach is an excellent place for getting away on weekends.  The Shenandoah Mountains are only a 4 hour drive West along the Blue Ridge Parkway, Washington DC is…

Shooting in New River Gorge – what worked? What didn’t?

My latest photography trips to West Virginia were taken during the early fall of 2007, so please disregard the date this article was written. West Virginia is one of the most scenic places I’ve ever been to.  You could be standing on top of a mountain, admiring the view, then climb down the mountain to…

The Dragon – an amusement park for sports cars and motorcycles

On route 129 between North Carolina and Tennessee there is what looks like a short bypass on regular road maps, but it is anything but regular.  Innocent victims of these road maps can find themselves confronted by some of the most aggressive drivers the United States can dish out.  These are people who have come…

Smokey Mountains

There is a road between Tennessee and North Carolina called the Dragon which is basically an amusement park for sports cars and motorcycles.  I try to go at least once a year and sometimes I make it twice.  Imagine 318 curves in 11 miles with no driveways or intersections or stop signs.  It is just…

Great Falls, VA

When one thinks of Washington DC, the thoughts typically float around government.  When one thinks of nature in DC, Great Falls is one of those places those places that doesn’t usually come to mind.  Hopefully, you’ll think of visiting it next time you’re there.
