Moss Glen Falls, Deer Hollow Brook, Granville Reservation, Green Mountains National Forest, Vermont

October 14, 2009

Hey everybody,

Last week, I spent time with Chris Kayler and Joe Rossbach photographing fall foliage in the Green Mountains of Vermont! The color was excellent up there, and it rained just about every day, providing almost perfect conditions for photographing the colorful foliage, rushing streams, and beautiful waterfalls that the Green Mountains are so famous for having.

Here’s a shot I made on a rainy day at Moss Glen Falls. Moss Glen Falls is truly one of the most beautiful waterfalls I’ve had the chance to photograph so far. I spent hours and hours there photographing it from every possible angle I could come up with. Here’s a favorite.

R.B. Ricketts Falls, Ricketts Glen State Park, Pennsylvania

June 16, 2009

Hey everybody,

On my way home from Maine, thanks to the rainy weather, I stopped by Ricketts Glen State Park, in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Thanks to tons of precipitation having come through in the few days before my visit, I was treated to some beautiful conditions. The forest and ground were just saturated with moisture, and the water in the streams was up considerably high. Ricketts Glen is the kind of place where I feel like it’s almost impossible to come up with any good photographs unless there is high water. Below is an image I took at R.B. Ricketts Falls, alongside Glen Leigh.

On a different note, in Shenandoah National Park the White-tailed Deer fawns have been dropping in full force, and I have just got to get up there this week to photograph them!

Frigid Moose Falls, Yellowstone National Park

April 30, 2009

Continuing with my theme of photos taken on that ridiculously long trip of mine, here is a shot I’d like to share with you all. Moose Falls is a fantastic waterfall located in the interior of Yellowstone National Park. I was lucky to have been visiting with family, for this part of the trip. My cousin, Luke, and I took a commercial snowmobile tour on the park’s snowpacked roads. We stopped at a few waterfalls, geothermal pools, and geysers along the way, and this was by far the most photogenic subject. Due to a few 40 degree days, the waterfalls were flowing quite a bit. In the ten [boooo] minutes I spent photographing here, I probably had to wipe my lens dry two dozen times due to spray from the falls and a light snowfall. Anyhow… Here it is.

Snaux above Faux Falls

April 26, 2009

This image was taken upstream of Faux Falls, easily my favorite place inside the Moab Valley. It had snowed a few inches, so I figured it’d make for some interesting photographs. This image is a double processed and blended RAW file. I’ve been feeling like my processing hasn’t been very good lately, so I’m trying to step that up a bit.

West Virginia day trip

January 28, 2009


I took a day trip out to Blackwater Falls and the Monongahela National Forest today. The roads were horrible! I got stuck in the snow multiple times and was lucky to have been able to get out on my own. I guess that’s what I get for driving past a “no snow removal beyond this point” sign. Go figure…

Anyhow, here are two quickly processed shots. The first is of Blackwater Falls, and the second is of hoar frost coated trees near Thomas, WV. Shooting conditions were tough, and I’m not too sure yet of how I did photographically. At least I had a good time!



Lost Land Falls Panoramic, Potomac State Forest, Maryland.

January 25, 2009

Hey everybody,

…the photo processing continues! Looks like weather will prevent me from getting out to Barnegat Light this week. Maybe I’ll try West Virginia if the snow forecast takes a turn for the better… We’ll see. I have to get out and shoot SOMETHING, though.

Anyway, I’ve been having a bit of fun with these autumn panos. Here’s one of Lost Land Falls, from the Potomac State Forest, just outside of Oakland, Maryland. This is an extremely photogenic set of falls and I think I like the 67 megapixel pano treatment here. Let me know if you disagree, though. I’m still not too sure about this one.


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

December 24, 2008

Hey everybody,

Nothing much to say. Just wishing all of you a happy holiday season. Enjoy yourselves. Here’s a shot from last March of Blackwater falls in good ‘ol West Virginny.

Blackwater Falls Winter Overlook

More More More Great Falls!

September 25, 2008

Hey Folks,

Here’s the last of my Great Falls shots for the year. I swear! I won’t have any more mornings to spend at Great Falls until next year. I’m quite excited, actually. I’m just a few days away from beginning a massive photo trip. I’ll be leaving on the First of October, and getting back in Mid-December. I plan to photograph Autumn foliage throughout the Blue Ridge, Wildlife in Texas, and wintry desert scenes throughout the southwest. It’s going to be a marathon, and it’s going to put my dedication to test, but I know I can do it!

Be sure to check back for updates as I plan on updating as much as possible from the road.

Anyways, this photo was taken during the little “group outing” on September 14th. Joe, Chris, Pini, and I all made some quality images in the breaking fog at sunrise.

More More Great Falls!

September 24, 2008

Here’s a photo from one of my many Great Falls outings from this and last month. All morning the clouds looked like they were going to produce more dramatic light than this, but I’ll take it however it comes! Some ambitious work on CS3 really makes a shot stand out from time to time.

More Great Falls!

September 23, 2008

In this post you’ll see yet another shot from one of my many Great Falls sunrises with Chris Kayler. On this particular morning, the sky was fairly overcast, and the color never really came out any more then this. I still think this was a nice scene. It was on this morning that I came across a really attractive bit of lichens on the overlook rocks that I hope to utilize with better light.


September 22, 2008

I’ve been spending a ridiculous amount of time in preparation for a rather lengthy trip this fall and winter. I’ll be photographing autumn foliage throughout the Blue Ridge, Wildlife in Texas, and winter desert scenes throughout Arizona and Utah. My journey begins in the West Virginia highlands, and should wrap up around Capitol Reef NP, Utah. I’ll be out for over two months, and I absolutely can’t wait.

Anyhow, enough about that. This is yet another Great Falls shot from the trip with Joe, Chris, and Pini. I used the backlit fog to my advantage, and composed with a somewhat unique composition (for me, at least.

Great Falls: Take 2

September 19, 2008

I like this version a bit more, now that I think about it.

Great Falls

September 18, 2008

Here’s a shot from a recent outing to Great Falls with Joe Rossbach, Chris Kayler, and Pini Goldman. It was quite foggy on the gorge when we arrived, but it cleared a half hour or so after the sun rose. This is one of the few vertical compositions I tried. I wish the fog broke up a few minutes earlier, but I’m happy with this shot regardless.

Great Falls National Park, VA

August 26, 2008

Here’s a photograph from last week up at Great Falls National Park.  I met up with another photographer, Chris Kayler, to photograph the sunrise. The shooting conditions were pretty nice. The skies were very clear, which was less than ideal, but there was a good amount of mist rising off the water, which is characteristic of this time of year. I showed up a bit late and I think I missed the best light. That’s okay, though, since I have no shortage of days I can go back. I live only 15 minutes away.

Anyway, here’s my favorite shot from that morning. I’ll be heading back a few times this week, so look out for more shots soon. I also had the opportunity to photograph shorebirds in Conneaut, Ohio, so I’ll be posting plenty of those images as well!
