Shooting in the Snow

These tips will help for taking pics in the snow.

The Cross Country Skier

It's that time again.....snow time.  New England is always beautiful this time of year, especially in areas where there are so many winter activities.  There are still many unspoiled areas to enjoy with scenes like this.  I do better at viewing than "doing" - have you tried walking in snowshoes?   Almost broke my neck trying to get started.  Good exercise though.

The Old Barn

This photo was taken along rte. 302 between Lisbon and Littleton, New Hampshire.  I wanted to capture it before the "elements" did anything else to it - like cause it's demise.  It doesn't seem to matter which season you drive by this barn, it always looks beautiful in it's old age.  I'd like to do the same.

More New Hamsphire

This farm in Sugar Hill, NH is one of the most photographed in the area - so sad it is no longer being taken care of.  The squirrel was peeking in the cabin window and seemed to be talking "Hey lady, Are you in there?  We need more peanuts".  I find great joy in feeding as well photographing all the critters in the woods.

New Hampshire

Just a couple nice shots taken in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  One is a cow and bull behind her, the other is a leaf covered bridge close to Bethlehem.  We have been drinking lots of mulled apple cider, as it is harvest time in New England.

Fall Color

This was taken in the Kokadjo area of Maine, close to Moosehead Lake.  Fall colors were stunning in Maine and New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts were lagging behind a little.  The moose were out for rut and were not disappointed seeing a large bull in the distance with the gorgeous scenery behind.

South Padre Island, Texas Sunset

This was taken on the bay side of South Padre Island around 7:00 p.m. August 19th. This was one of the nicest sunsets I've seen since the Virgin Island trip.  People were fishing, boats were floating by, music was softly playing, fish were jumping occasionally and weather was beautiful.  For shrimp lovers this town is the place!

Sarah R.

Taken during the last photo seminar I attended.  This lady, Sarah, was an excellent model and very patient with our group.

Kancamagus Waterfall

This is the Sabbaday Falls area off the Kancamagus Highway, better known as Rte. 112 in New Hampshire. The Kancamagus is famous for it's beautiful scenery all along it, as well as moose that seen quite often.  The highway starts in Lincoln, NH and runs 26 miles to Conway, NH with many twists and turns as it follows the Pemigewasset River.  Fall is this White Mountain area is spectacular.

Yorkie Pup

This baby looks like a stuffed toy. My friend and instructor Trudy Gately and her husband Mark raise these little dogs.  I'd like four, please. 

Scituate Lighthouse

Love this lighthouse; never get tired of taking it's picture.  Located in Scituate, MA and currently lived in.  It was built in 1811 and the first family that lived there had nine children.  Two of these girls left alone one day scared off a British warship that was in the harbor by playing a fife and drum. The history in and around the Boston area is amazing.

Dog Sledding at Mt.Washington

What fun to watch the dog sledding at various places in the White Mountains.  Most of these dogs are from the Muddy Paws Kennel which serves several areas for sled rides.  The dogs seem to really enjoy what they are doing, although I don't know how things work if one needs to stop for "personal reasons".
