Seek The Peak

Summit In The Clouds

 

In a little over one months time I’ll again be hiking in support of the Mount Washington Observatory(MWOBS). Seek The Peak is an annual Hike-A-Thon fundraiser for the non-profit weather research facility located atop the tallest peak in the northeast, and home to the “Worlds Worst Weather.” The highest surface wind speed recorded by man, at 231 mph, was recorded here in 1934. No wonder the old summit building is chained to the ground!

As I did last year I’m seeking your support for this world-class research facility. And, to make it worth your while, I’m again raffling off two signed prints as a reward for your support. For each $10 (U.S.) tax-deductible donation made through my personal fundraising page  your name will be entered into a drawing for a signed 16″x24″ print of any of the photos found on my website.

That’s right, you as the winner gets to choose your prize!

But there’s more. For the person making the largest donation*(see the not so fine print below), you will automatically receive a signed 20″x30″ canvas gallery wrap of the image of your choice. Simple, make a big donation, take home a big print, no taking chances your name whether or not will be drawn.

*The not so fine print. The signed print is available to anyone worldwide. Sadly the signed canvas for the largest donation can only be shipped to the U.S. and Canada.

 

Please consider making your donation today.

Thank you, and see you at the summit!

Here’s a slide show of images made during last years hike.

Better Photography Takes More Than A Fancy Camera.

I my latest article for the New England Photography Guild I share a few tips on how to take your photography past the snap-shot and on to creating beautiful and compelling photographs.  

None of the tips involves buying any new gear, except maybe an alarm clock. ;-)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

For those of you who’ve been following me for even a short time you’ve probably realized I rarely do “Inside.” So when it came to photos for this weeks challenge I had to do a little digging for images that fit the theme.

One way or another, loosely or literally, here are my “Inside” shots.

My Winter Photography Isn’t All Grand Scenic Landscapes.

Sometimes it’s the little gems that catch my eye.

Here, in my latest article for the New England Photography Guild, I write about the hidden jewels I find along the way to those wonderful mountain vistas.
