Red Squirrel perched on a tree branch. Small critters in the woods can be a challenge. They tend to move around a lot. You can’t always get close. You need a long lens. There often isn’t a lot of light to have a fast shutter speed. The animals can hide out in shaddows. There are a lot of obstacles to overcome to achieve a decent photograph of woodland creatures.

I love to camp. My favorite places to camp are ones where the campground itself lends itself to photography. Nice scenic locations. Higley Flow State Park worked out really well for me. Most nights I walked down to the lake to photograph the sunset. I like to experiment and try to incorporate different elements into my sunset photography. I was fascinated by this large tree stump and roots along the lake shore…. Read More

I try to photograph a wide variety of locations. And I try to incorporate a variety of different types of photography into my adventures. Frequently my photography takes me to public parks. Most of the time when I am photographing public parks I try to shoot it in a way that excludes the man made aspects of the park. I like to try to showcase nature most of the time. When I… Read More

I love to explore landscapes. My favorite places to explore are areas that are home to a variety of different types of environments. There is quite a bit to see at the Paul Smiths Visitor Center in the Adirondack region of New York. Wetlands and woodlands. Mountain landscapes off in the distance. Wildflowers and trees. And it is even a nice spot to watch some birds. There are nice trails that will… Read More

After my adventure climbing Saddleback Mountain I still had over a week left in my camping trip in the Adirondacks. My experience on Saddleback had really shaken my confidence in my ability to do this type of hiking. Being in the High Peaks of the Adirondacks was a bit more intimidating than it had been previously. Originally I had planned three big hikes during my first week of a two week long… Read More

I love exploring landscapes. The Adirondack Mountain region of New York is a great place to do that. This is a photo from Buttermilk Falls. I like this image because the actual falls of Buttermilk Falls plays a minor role in the composition. Working my way through the landscape to show the flow of water away from the falls and through the woods. The waterfall itself is only visible among the trees… Read More

As someone who loves to be outdoors there are so many different aspects of being outdoors that I enjoy. There are a lot of simple mundane things to be found in the outdoors that bring me joy. The texture of tree bark. Noticing when the wildflowers are blooming. Sitting in the shade under a tree. But often I crave something different from my outdoors experiences. I often seek some type of new… Read More

My afternoon adventure on my first full day in the Adirondacks turned into an evening adventure because I took a nap in my hammock at camp for longer than I had expected. By the time I convinced myself to get out of camp It was getting to be early evening hours. I enjoy photographing waterfalls. I have a guidebook to waterfalls in the Adirondack region. In the past I have focused on… Read More

My recent trip to the Adirondacks was a making plans and then adjusting on the fly. I like to have a sense of what I want to do on a trip or I tend to feel stuck. I’ll just spend the whole time looking at my guide books and maps trying to figure out what to do and never end up doing anything at all. To avoid getting stuck I like to… Read More

I love a good camping trip. An opportunity to get a little outside our comfort zone. Spend a lot of time outside. Just be out in nature. This trip was a two week long trip to the Adirondacks. For the first week I was camping alone. Then for the second week my wife joined me with our puppy River. Tent Camping Our preferred method of camping is tent camping. All of our… Read More
