Photography 101: Treasure

Winter Treasure.

Winter is coming.

Cold winds blow.

The mountains frosted white.

Deep in forest as the cold takes hold, icy treasures glisten.

Changing, new, from day to day on the whims of the stream.

There for the taking diamond white, jewels created of ice.

Photography 101: The Natural World

Beauty and Wonder Abound

Nature is meant to be lived.

Nature and the Natural World is best enjoyed not through a window or a photograph, but first hand and up close.

In order to witness the magic,

Nature needs to be experienced.

New Hampshire Night And The Northern Lights.

There was a storm and then there were lights.

Last Thursday and again on Friday, September 11th and 12th, the sun sent a blast of energy our way in the form of a coronal mass ejection, or CME. While these strong magnetic storms can cause problems for electrical grids, GPS, and radios, what interested me, and just about every other photographer I know, was the light show.

You see these potentially damaging solar storms are also what gives us the Aurora Borealis. otherwise known as the Northern Lights. While much of my photography takes place during daylight hours, the reported potential intensity of the Aurora, and the fact we don’t usually see the Aurora this far south, had me grabbing my camera and heading for the mountains.

I’m glad I did.Spending The Night Under Aurora Skies

White Mountain Poems

I’m quite pleased to announce that the book “White Mountain Poems,” by New Hampshire author Jeffrey Zygmont, will be hitting the shelves very soon. Along with the photographs from three of New Hampshire’s most talented photographers, will be nine of my images, including the one you see on the cover.

Very exciting indeed!

A Beautiful Landscape…

…With A Little Something Extra.

The view of the Presidential Range as seen from the Pondicherry National Wildlife Refuge is one of my favorites in New Hampshire.

Apparently I’m not the only one who thinks so..
