Still Learning To See

Today is amazing!

Three more images from my current show, “This Amazing World,” hanging at the Central Vermont Medical Center Art Gallery for the next three months.


Fall Colors and their Reflections

The soft light of a warm, misty October evening causes the Fall colors to intensify to the point of saturation.  The still waters of Wrightsville Reservoir is the perfect match.

Technical notes: Pentax *istDS digital camera with the zoom lens at 108 (ISO200 @ 1/350 sec and f6.7).



Reflections at Cady’s Falls #2

One of the benefits of digital photography is the ease with which, when conditions are good, I can make as many exposures as I want. In the days of film photography, a “10-roll day” was both rare and costly. Over the years I’ve been visiting Cady’s Falls, I’ve had two particularly remarkable Fall days when conditions were not just good but were perfect. On September 27th, 2013 I came back with nearly five hundred “keeper” photographs of this stream, not a usual occurrence! This is one that captures the beauty of the day’s subtle grace.

Technical notes: Pentax K-7 digital camera with a Pentax zoom lens at 97mm (ISO400 @ 1/100 sec and f4.5).



Stones in water on limestone, Lake Michigan

I’ve spent a great deal of time on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan. Many beaches are beautiful sand, some clay and others covered in rock. A few, like this one near Charlevoix, Michigan are limestone—nearly flat and strewn with stones of many colors and sizes. When the clear water washes over this place and I’m standing in it with a camera, I am transported!

Technical details: Sony @7 at 150mm and 1/250 at f/5.6 and ISO200


I hope you can find time today to enjoy this amazing world we live in, whether in your backyard, on a walk in the neighborhood, or getting from here to there.
