Nubble Light at Christmas York Maine

Nubble Lighthouse, also known as Cape Neddick Light is located on a small rocky island a couple of hundred feet off shore in York Maine. It's a very popular destination for photographers, especially during the Christmas Season when it is lit up and decorated for the holidays. I visited here late afternoon/early evening this past Saturday. Unfortunately we had cloudy skies to work with.

Snowy Owl Parker River Nat'l Wildlife Sanctuary

Well hello to you! I was out this weekend taking pretty pictures to share with you. Today's photo is one that I took up in Newburyport MA. Now........this is an environmental portrait of a Snowy Owl.......pretty much more environment than portrait as this Snowy was quite a long distance away.

See that white dot????? That's the owl. 

More photos from this weekend will be coming in the next blog post.

Six month old Conor Christmas Photography

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Time is moving quickly and somehow we are already in the Christmas season. How does this happen so fast?

Speaking of the Christmas season, I recently did a Christmas family photo shoot. I'm much more comfortable shooting landscapes and wildlife and all things nature, but every once in a while I will do portraits. It usually causes me stress and anxiety, but this photo shoot was easy peasy because I had an adorable six month old who was happy to cooperate with me and my camera, and he has a very easy going mom and dad who were so much fun to work with.

Here is adorable Conor: (As always, click photos to enlarge)

This one is so precious...........reading a Christmas story in his Christmas pj's. So darn cute!!

Such a beautiful family....

Thank you Courtney, Ryan and Conor for allowing me the opportunity to take your photographs. It was a pleasure.

The Colors of November

Happy Thanksgiving week to you! I can't believe how time is flying by. I know we say that all the time, but this year in particular just blows my mind and I have no idea how it is already the week of Thanksgiving.

We had some color here in SE MA up to about a week ago. Most of it is all gone and stick season is here, but here's a few photos I took about ten days ago of some nice color that I found.

Boston Public Garden and Beacon Hill in The Fall

A few weeks ago......actually the week before Halloween......I went into Boston early on a Sunday morning with some camera club friends. The Fall foliage was a bit behind this year in the Public Garden, as expected with the way this Fall has been going.....but many of the beautiful homes on Beacon Hill did not disappoint and were beautifully decorated.

As always, click photos for a larger view

Some pictures from the Public Garden:

From here, we took a walk up to Beacon Hill:

It was a perfect Fall morning!

Moutain View Dairy B and B Irasburg VT

After a day out shooting in VT this Fall, it was getting to be late afternoon and I didn't have an exact plan of where we would be going to shoot the late day light. I usually like to have a set itinerary, but sometimes it works when you just wing it, as was the case on this particular day.

I decided we would head up to the Mountain View Dairy and Bed and Breakfast in Irasburg. I had done some morning photography at this location in the past, and I knew it had some promise for late day shooting. I wasn't disappointed.

Irasburg United Church, VT

After a very loooong day of shooting, there was one more stop that I wanted to make before we headed home. We were tired. Very tired. I honestly was going to go shoot this by myself. I didn't expect them to come with me......I knew my companions had enough and just wanted to go home to bed. But they insisted that "All for one" or however that saying we all went together to photograph the Irasburg United Church lit up at night.

I heart my friends.......

Full Harvest Moon Sky Over May Pond Barton VT

One of my favorite photography nights from this Fall was spent at May Pond in Barton. I was planning on photographing the full Harvest Moon rising over May Pond, but a cloud cover moved in and I wasn't sure if it would be possible. I love when Mother Nature cooperates with my plans, as she provided a sliver of clear sky just as the moon was cresting over the hillside. What looks like a sunrise is actually a moonrise!

There were some breaks in the clouds as the moon rose higher which allowed some of the clear sky and stars to be seen.

More photos from this night from another location in the next blog post.

Four Corner Falls Jay VT/ River Road Covered Bridge Troy VT

Day six of foliage trip:

Our first stop of the day was to photograph Four Corner Falls in Jay VT. This was a new adventure for me and I was happy to photograph here. It's a short hike down a hilly path to get to the water. The waterfalls and rivers during this time period were all very low due to lack of rain. When we arrived at the water it looked rather ho-hum.....

After a short scramble down again, and a short hike up, this is what we saw:

I can only imagine what this must look like after a heavy rain or in the Spring!

A beautiful reflection on a road side in Jay VT:

We came across this farm.......I'm not sure if this is Troy VT or Jay VT. If you happen to know where this is, let me know!
