About

 Passionate about nature, and the great outdoors. Constantly in awe of the beauty that surrounds us.

Always striving to capture and share all that the natural world has to offer.

Through unique and compelling images I hope to instill in others that same sense of appreciation and wonder.

    • I’ve been slacking when it comes to wetting a fly the last few years. Spending more time behind the camera. I always have my 1 wt rod with me when I’m up in the White Mountains camping though, got to have something to do between the golden hours:-)

  1. What a tremendously gifted photographer you are. I am enthralled by your photos and look forward to seeing more of your posts. Thanks for sharing your creativity and beauty with all of us.

  2. Hi, Jeff–this is, I believe, my first visit to your site, following back your comment agreeing with my suggestion to Cindy (at the Loonybin) to try a square format on her starfish. I have just had a look at your first array of pages and don’t know where to start with my compliments, so I’ll do it here. I am delighted that I did the click and am now looking forward to a much deeper excursion into your vision and your art. I have only rarely signed up to follow a new site on my first visit, but I’m doing it now. I am very pleased to meet you. -Gary

  3. Hello Jeff :) I’ve stopped by to tell you that I have accepted the new challenge involving hands :D and I expect the same from you. I will shoot it this weekend. Btw, the stars on this page are mine ;) ttys

    • Thanks for the stars my lady. I am up to the challenge, in fact the images are already picked out. I may try something tricky with actual human hands this weekend to add to it. Oops, I’ve said too much :-O

    • Thanks Paula!

      Actually there are currently six different images with more in the works. It’s easy to do too.

      Go to Dashboard > Appearance > Header then upload and crop your images. Once you’e saved and published them, select Random: Show a different image on each page.

      Now whenever you click on my blog you will be greeted by a different image. Cool huh? If you are really bored, just keep hitting the home button and you should go through them all pretty quick. Have fun! :-D

    • Sheila,
      I cannot tell you how grateful I am that you think my blog is worthy of any kind of award. With that being said, I have to respectfully decline. I have decided that as honored as I am to be nominated for any of these awards, that I simply don’t have the time to keep up with the requirements of acceptance of this, or any other award. Keeping up with this blog, as well as my entire photography related online presence, has become more time consuming than I had ever anticipated.

      I hope not to offend you, and please accept my sincerest apologies if I have, with my declining of your gracious nomination, again, thank you,

      Jeff

  5. Just wanted to let you know I have nominated you for the Inspiring Blog Award! To see more about the award and this nomination, please visit my post at http://wp.me/p2ekZU-xl.
    I hope this will be welcome news for you. If you prefer not to accept the award, I certainly understand, but I hope you will visit the other nominees, and they will visit you, just the same. All the best!

    • Thank you so very much, it is an honor to receive your nomination. It is with regret that I must decline. It is not that I don’t appreciate it, I do more than you can imagine. It is that I just haven’t the time to honor the commitment that comes with acceptance. I will do my absolute best to visit each and every one of the other blogs you’ve nominated in the next few days. Again, thank you!

  6. I think New England is the best place to take photos in the US, so you’re lucky to live there! I lived in CT for 5 years and have never seen so many beautiful places to photograph than the Northeast. Sure the Southwest (I’m in San Diego) is interesting but photos contain a lot of yellow or brown because it’s so dry – not appealing to me.

  9. Just wanted to let you know I have nominated you for the No Strings Attached-Gratitude Award. I hope this will be welcome news for you. I also hope you will visit the other nominees, and they will visit you. To see more about the award and accepting this nomination (no strings on this one), please visit my post at http://wp.me/p2ekZU-E4. All the best!

  10. Howdy – I just stopped by from The Retiring Sort’s blog, because of the No Strings Attached award nomination. Gotta say, she has good taste! I’ll be visiting again. Maybe I’ll learn something about photography (it’s my fun hobby – but I won’t quit my day job. I’d starve).

  11. Hello Jeff! I see here that you do not accept blog awards as they are far too time consuming, which I now understand, having gone through the steps required to accept my first award. However, I am nominating you ANYWAY for the Very Inspiring Blogger award, as I have been very grateful for your support of my photography. Don’t worry – I don’t expect you to jump through the hoops but hopefully the link on my site will bring you some new traffic.

    • Thank you, I’m truly am honored. If I only had the time…

      Balance a full time job, a family, and trying to get my photography “career” off the ground, there aren’t enough hours in the day. Then I still need to find the time to actually get out and shoot.

      Thank you again, and I’m more than happy to be of help. My door is always open should you ever wish to ask a question. I find I get a lot out of helping other photographers as others have helped me in the past. I will share anything I know, I have no secrets.

  12. Greetings from Australia Jeff,
    I love reading about your biography as I absolutely love nature, and enjoy reading about other photographers who share the same passion. I lived in the UK for five long beautiful years but unfortunately didn’t get to experience the l;lake districts. Take great care and God bless

  13. Hi Jeff, greetings from Singapore! Your photos are very inspiring and thought-provoking. It feels like I’m really in it. Thanks for sharing such amazing photos!

    • Thank you so much Elina, It’s always humbling to receive such wonderful compliments. When I saw how busy you’ve been leaving “likes” all over my blog I just had to pay your a visit. Of the few images I had time to look at I enjoyed them all. I’ve left your blog open on my browser so I can pay it a proper visit when I get home from my “real” job this evening.

      • I could have just kept on leaving those “likes” on your blog but ran out of time and had to go. Simply wonderful photos! Thank you for your kind reply and visiting my blog, you are more than welcome there any time.

            • I enjoy your photography, in fact I just subscribed, so thank you for making images I want to go see :-) I like the low POV you use in a lot of your photos. One of my favorite ways to shoot is while crawling around on my hands and knees, or even sprawled out on my belly. Now there’s a vision for you :-P

              • Haha, your vision is exactly what I look like when taking photos :D Very often. I feel honoured to have you subscribed to my blog and really appreciate it! Like you said it’s always humbling to hear that someone enjoys your photos.

                • Not afraid to get dirty for a photo, I love it! I have two words for you, “knee pads!” I bought a cheap pair at the local home improvement store, and they always come with me. You may look a little goofy walking through the woods wearing them, but your knees and your pants will thank you for it. :-D

                  • Thanks, knee pads sound like a very good idea :) And a necessity for the future, especially on muddy Autumn and Spring days. I guess after crawling on the ground walking with pads doesn’t look so goofy after all :)

                    • Nope, people likely already look at you funny when they see you sprawled out on the ground, so why not add knee pads to your outfit? If you’re going to look goofy making pictures, I say go all the way.

                      You should see the looks I get from passers by and fisherman when I’m standing waist deep in my favorite water lily spot. :-D

  14. Hi, Jeff! I am inviting you to join this fun photo competition because I think your photographs are great. I also want to see what you can come up with. This is not an award, it is a real photography competition. If you’d like to join, please check out the links on my blog. Cheers! Angie

    • Great! Though I am a little disappointed in the delay. I can’t believe you didn’t drop everything to add me as a friend :-P Now we can whip each other into shape! Love the new gravitar pic, but aren’t those supposed to be on your feet ;-)

  15. awesome photos Jeff…I found your blog through Cee…she has you listed as a favorite blog so thought I’d check it out! I’ve been taking photos for about a year now and find I learn so much from simply visiting and observing!

    • Thank you Heather, and thanks for stopping by.

      That is one of the best ways to learn how to make good photos, looking at a lot of other photos. Looking at other photos, seeing the direction and quality of the light, where the main subject is placed in the composition, are all great ways to learn. And while I would mostly recommend looking at good photos, trying to figure out what makes them good, don’t forget the bad ones too. Being able to see why a photo doesn’t work can help you avoid the same mistakes.

      • welcome Jeff…yes I agree…I’ve researched photography online but find for me simply looking at photos I’m drawn too helps me…I’ve learned a great deal in the last year…I’m not a ‘natural’ but I’m learning,more importantly enjoying myself along the way!

  16. Hi Jeff, – I found your blog over on the Daily Post (portrait vs. landscape article) and it was so good!! I think your pictures are great (should I say stunning?) and I really appreciate your tidbits and tips too – like the recent post about battery back-ups and keeping them warm.

    I look forward to peeking in on your blog this coming year- and best wishes on the Seek the Peak this summer – :)

    • Thank you for stopping by and the kind words. This year my plan is to offer more in the way of tips. Hopefully giving my subscribers a little more than just a few nice pictures.

      I’m very much looking forward to Seek the Peak this year, and hopefully raising as much as I can in pledges.
