Notch Light

I usually have more fun wandering than overly planning for shoots, and when magical light happens it’s something really special and makes for moments that I forever treasure. This one was just a magnificent scene as a summertime storm rolled through Pinkham Notch with blasting afternoon sunlight making for a silhouetted evergreen landscape within one of New England’s finest alpine areas. It’s a print I will always love.

Pastel Curl

This abstract scene has been a print that I love for the past few years and for me it really summarizes the vibe and beauty of Nantucket Island. The gem of a location that rests about a marathon away from the Cape Cod mainland is all about the ocean and on this cold autumn evening the waters were churning away with a beautiful layering of pastel colors within the clouds.

It will always be one of my favorite places to work and this one will be a picture i’ll always think of when wishing I was back out on the island.

Historic Trails

The old pathways that wind through Minuteman National Park are a sight that I take in often, mostly as a jogging spot but it’s also one of my favorites for making pictures too. They were the lands where the early stages of the Revolutionary War took place and I often wonder how different they must have looked back then. However, even as the years roll by these historic farmlands have grown with vibrant vegetation but they are still the same gorgeous trails and pathways through the lands just outside of Boston.

Foliage Tracks

The fall colors are an obviously popular part of the New England landscape, and while theres so much hype and they bring in all the tourists, i’ll always admit that it sure is a beautiful time of the years. This is a view from above within the historic Crawford Notch area which is a stretch of some of the most rugged terrain in the Northeast and these tracks used to do the brunt of the passenger transit back when the grand hotels ruled the area in a much different era than now.

Switching Seasons

It’s the time of the year where it feels like summer flew by, and from the looks of things in Vermont just a few days ago, fall is here. The colors descend upon the Vermont landscape a bit sooner than elsewhere in New England with the cooler temperatures around the Green Mountain landscape, and this barn and birch tree sure had it all for an early autumn landscape scene. It’s one of my favorite times of the year within the landscape, and catching the scenery while still vibrant but changing at the same time is one of my favorite times for making pictures around here.

Old Red

Barns and farms are just so beautiful in both form and function and they are one of the hallmarks of the New England landscape. Vermont has a whole bunch of them range wildly in age yet almost always have a cool story behind them, they are the essence of a construction that has seen a lot of stuff and made a difference within our local communities as centerpieces of the farmland. This one was shining in all it’s glory in late day sunshine and made for a classic New England scene.

Bike Road

I might be biased as a through and through New Englander, but i’d definitely say that Route 100 is among the greatest scenic drives on planet earth. The landscape is alive and vibrant in different ways all through the changing seasons and makes for a refreshing and energizing cruise whether on four wheels or two.

Rolling Hills

It goes without saying that 2020 has been a year of strange days for our whole planet, and all the time inside and away from people sure made some travel time around New England feel wonderful over the past few weeks. As much as many people think of Vermont for it’s autumn colors I have a profound love for the landscape during the summertime when things feel as alive and as green as scenery can get.

I am excited to be sharing some new print work with some of these magical landscapes from the past few weeks.
