Falls at the Basin



Was in New Hampshire yesterday so drove to Sugar Hill for some lupines.  What a pity – the fields have a handful of flowers.  It seems the weeds have choked the lupine plants.

On the way back, stopped at the Basin and took a few images with the Sony A7R, 28 – 70 f/3.5 – 5.6.  Did not have any ND filters on hand so used ISO 50, f/22 for a 2.5 second exposure. The A7R has excellent dynamic range – impressed.  Click on the image to view larger.

Looking Back at 2011

2011 was an interesting year in a lot of respects.  Most important and foremost I would like to thank all of you who participated in my photo tours, educational workshops and one-on-one lessons.  I would also like to thank all my photography clients both individuals and  corporations and my sponsors, you have all been fantastic and I look forward to your continued support in the coming years.

I truly enjoyed meeting and making new friends and the process of learning from each other.  The incredible experiences in Florida, Alaska, Colorado, Cape Cod, Maine, and New Hampshire and all the one day trips in and around Massachusetts will never be forgotten.

After many months of planning the 2012 schedule is about ready to be published.  Most significant are the photo tours and workshops to India in February, Florida for another great bird photograpy workshop in March,  Smokeys in the Spring  –  this starts the year.  Keep an eye out for details and more information as we post it in the workshop pages on this blog.

Also planned are a number of one and two day sessions for macro, lighting, composition, Lightroom and Photoshop training.  As always, customized one-on-one programs are also available.

None of this would have been possible without the incredible amount of planning and organizing by my photograpy partner and loving wife – thank you M.

New Hampshire Fall Workshop Report

Overall the workshop turned out great.  Friday was a bit of a disapointment with very little color along the Kankamagus Higway.  The second day we went up North through Bethlehem, Lancaster, Stark and Gorham.  The foliage was good as were the birch trees in Gorham.    Day three was also up North but not as far as the previous day. Most of the time we explored the Crawford Notch area and ended the day in Pinkham Notch.  Columbus day was spent on the Kankamagus which was now in full glory.  What a dramatic change in two days. Speaking to friend and fell photographer who had gone up yesterday – the colors are gone and the trees are brown.  This is the strangest and most rapid change-over I have ever seen.

Here are some images from the trip:

Lupine Festival 2011

June 5, 2011 – Went north to Sugar Hill, New Hampshire for the opening week of a three week Lupine Festival.  The Lupins were in bloom but the invasive weeds are still an issue.  The density of the blooms are not what they used to be years ago.

Here are two images – one a composite of a field of buttercups and the other a female red wing on a lupine.
