One photo a day challenge: Day 160. Spent a little time photographing the trees here in New York. This tree was growing just outside the edge of the forest. In one shot I could compose an image that included the tree trunk, the edge of the forest, and the bright opening of a clearing in the background. I like how the tree trunk is half in shadow on one side. The dark… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 155. I love observing new growth coming in on plants. The way the foliage sprouts and unfurls. Creating new shapes that change over time. The leaves emerge as one color. Then there is a subtle shift in color as they grow and age. Eventually the leaves develop into the green we see on most trees. I am not sure what type of tree this is. I… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 127. Today I returned to a spot I photographed for this project earlier in the year. I wanted to return today because previously the trees had no leaves. Now it is early spring and the leaves are starting to bud on trees. I really like the more subtle shades of green that are present as a trees leaves are just starting to unfurl. If I went… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 113. Today I spent the entire day outside with my hands in the dirt. It was hard work. But it felt good. I haven’t spent that much time working in my yard in a long time. I spent the day transplanting 10 trees from the spots I initially planted them as samplings years ago to their new permanent locations. Big projects like that are not really… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 71. Most of the snow has melted in our area. I wanted to explore down by one of the local streams and see what I could find to photograph. The stream was flowing with all the extra run off from melted snow. All the vegetation that had died back to survive the winter was exposed now. Fallen trees were clear to see. Bare roots. Cracked tree… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 61. I am so happy that spring is getting close. It is finally the time of year, where it is still plenty light out on my commute home that I can stop and create some photos before going home. I stopped down at the trails by Chemung River again. The warm weather had melted a good bit of the snow and I wanted to see how… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 56. A lot of my winter photography has centered around trees. I am not sure exactly what it is that draws me to trees. Is it the contrast between the straight lines of tree trunks and the random sprouting twists and turns of their branches? Is it the wide variety of textures that can be found across different tree trunks or within the tree trunk of… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 54. After a day working in the home office I really wanted to get outside for a little while before sunset. I wanted to go for a hike, but I did not want to spend too much of the fleeting daylight getting there. I drove down off our hill. Across the river valley. Then drove back up the other side of the valley. I went to… Read More

I love running the Red Trail at Tanglewood. It is probably my favorite trail. I am really enjoying this challenge of running it at a fast pace. It is different than most of my runs here.

It wasn’t too long after my induction into the trail running world and meeting a few experience folks in the trail scene that I began to hear about this mythical race called Hyner. The more people involved in the trail scene I met the more I seemed to hear about Hyner. Last year, 2018, most of the people I am friends with that run trails planned to run Hyner. I was not… Read More
