Seasons Change.

Days grow shorter, night falls cool and crisp,

The landscape becomes awash in color,

A last show of defiance before white.

Autumn in New Hampshire is late this year, not according to the calendar of course, but when it comes to the spectacular fall foliage the region is known for, the north country is only just beginning to change. The conditions for this were set in motion in the spring and carry thru until now. But the color is coming…

Photography 101: Mystery

The Mysterious Path

Life is a path with a beginning and an end.
Around each bend in that path you’ll encounter mystery and choice.
Plan as you may, the journey you intend as you start down the path,
May be far different from the journey you finish.

Days shorten, in the air a chill.

Landscape awash in brilliance.

The waters pass on their meandering journey.

To dream the dream of autumn.

Autumn Hues

A cold wind blows, bringing a chill to the morning air.

Summer’s warmth becomes a pleasant memory as green becomes red and gold. 

The days are crisp, the air is clear, the hillsides dressed in brilliant Autumn Hues.

The question posed on the Daily Post, 

“Changing colors, dropping temperatures, pumpkin spice lattes: do these mainstays of Fall fill your heart with warmth — or with dread?”

My answer.

Warmth, anticipation, excitement, and joy.

Autumn is the most beautiful season. The awakenings of Spring and the comforting warmth and long days of Summer pale in comparison to Fall as the land adorns itself in its colorful best one last time before Winter’s sleep falls across the landscape.

A Room With A View Revisited

Sitting high atop Stairs Mountain overlooking the vast White Mountains of New Hampshire.


One evening last fall I had the pleasure of staying in a most spectacular and spacious room.

A room like no other.

Its walls beautifully decorated in shades of evergreen and autumn gold, with well placed splashes of crimson.

The finishing touch, a border of distant mountains under a nearly cloudless blue sky.

The cost of this room, merely miles underfoot, the reward for a nights stay, immeasurable.

Nature, in all its splendor, is supremely beautiful.

Often more so upon reflection.
