As I get to know this natural world around me….. It wasn’t too long ago that I didn’t know that the Pine Creek Rail Trail existed. One end of the trail, what I would call the beginning because it is closer to me than the other end, is only an hour away from where I live. And yet it was unknown to me for most of my life until recent years. So… Read More

I live in an area of rivers. So it is surprising to me how little landscape photography I have featuring rivers. Especially compared to other types of scenery I have photographed. This image is a nice combination of two things I don’t photograph enough. A winter scene and a river scene. I like how the sun is trying to power through the clouds on this cold and storming day. The light from… Read More

My photography generally centers around nature. I usually go out of my way to avoid photographing anything man made in my scenic shots. I have been trying to stretch myself lately. Include some structures in my scenes that fit with the type of work I already am passionate about. This image is well outside my normal photography range. But it is almost on par with the amazing scenes of nature. Standing at… Read More

Worlds End State Park is a beautiful location. So many specific locations worth checking out. But it is also worth it to take the time to enjoy a simple forest scene in the park. I love the mixture of colors and subjects in this image. Greens in the foreground and background. The middle of the image is dominated by browns. Trees standing tall creating vertical lines. A small stream at the bottom… Read More

In continuation of what has been a very different running year for me, compared to the last several years, I headed to Wellsboro to run the Green Monster Trail Challenge. This year I planned a running season that focused mostly on shorter races so I could try to feel what it would be like to run faster with more effort put into each mile. My norm for the last several years has… Read More

I love doing new things. I take my passions and direct them at something new and off we go. Exploring new places and seeing new things out in nature revitalizes me. My photography provides me a guide to doing that. Having goals and objectives in my photography inspires me to go places I probably would not have gone otherwise. When the opportunity to photograph the Sharp Top 25k/50k arose I was excited… Read More

There are so many different things to love about running. I love having a goal that I am training for, but it is also great to be done training for a specific goal or race. I try to incorporate as much fun into my training as possible but when you are training for a specific goal or event there are certain things you can and probably can’t do. You do certain things… Read More

I usually have a standing rule. No races in the winter. It’s not that I don’t run in the winter I just like to choose the conditions in which I run instead of running in whatever winter throws at me on race day. The one winter race I remember signing up for prior to this year, the weather ended up being so bad that our whole group that was planning to go… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 338. So happy to get out on the Green Monster Trails today. Great fun going with friend from home to meet up with other friends and run some trails. Getting out in nature. Stopping to take a few photos during a day of running. This is what its all about. I haven’t taken many running scenery photos lately. It makes me so happy to capture the… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 310. Photography is always fun. Photography is frequently challenging. But photography is at its best for me when I am doing something new. And often fore me that something new is exploring some new piece of nature. Today was one of those occasions. Last night I opened up one of my Purple Lizard Maps and I searched out new areas to explore. One of the locations… Read More
