The Reward As Orange Fades To Blue.

Winter Light.

The view at 4,802′.

There are 48 peaks on the official list of New Hampshire summits with an elevation of over 4,000 feet. Mount Moosilauke is #10 on that list. “The Moose,” is also the western most peak to be included on the list, and one I had yet to climb.

My reward for the effort, a snowshoe hike on a gorgeous brilliant winter afternoon under a clear blue sky, was to watch the sun as it set over windswept mountains and a moonlit hike back to the car.

As orange,

Winter Sunset, Mount Moosilauke

fades to blue.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Express Yourself

Your Photographs Are You.

Painted Morning

The photographs you make are unique.

No matter the location, they are a piece of you.

Ten, a hundred, a thousand times, regardless of how often a place as been seen through a lens, the pictures you make will be different.

A small part of everything you are, the life you’ve lead up until the moment you press the shutter, will become the photograph.

Find inspiration in others, visit the iconic places, photograph uniquely.

Express yourself.

And So It Begins, 2015.

Blue & Gold And A New Year.

Blue Awakening

While many(most?) were still warm in their beds, the New Year dawned blue and magical along the rocky New Hampshire coast.

This, the first image, in fact the first press of the shutter for 2015, is but a 30 second glimpse of the enchanting twilight.

16°F At First Light Of The New Year.

Soon, blue was overtaken by gold as the sun appeared on the horizon.

The icy Atlantic lapping at my feet, brilliant rays over rocky coast, I eagerly await the year to come.

Dawn Of A New Year, 2015

Wishing all a Happy New Year!

Photography 101: Get Out And Explore.

Along with the first snow comes wanderlust.

Blue Hour In The Land Of Snow And Ice.

Along with seasons first big snow storm came a desire to head to the mountains. A call to get out and explore I would not resist.

The sky at sunset was rather plain, yet the pastels on the horizon as the blue hour set in made for a wonderful evening high in a winter wonderland of snow and rime ice.

Mirror, Mirror.

New Hampshire’s Mt. Chocorua, uniquely doubled in a mirror image created of snow and ice.

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.
