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.

Start of Fall

This roadside scene along Route 100 had so many things that I think of when I think of Vermont. A quaint home, maple syrup for sale, a mountain backdrop, and a touch of fall color are all priceless details that make the Green Mountain State shine.

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.

Barn Edge

There is so much to love within the rugged and vintage landscape of Vermont and when I am up there I find myself driving from spot to spot with a limitless availability of spots to explore. The history and tradition of the barns nested on the lands is fascinating as well as pivotal to our history here in the New England area, and while most of the barns have a weather beaten and worn in look to them, it’s precisely why they shine with so much architectural beauty and they have become a staple of the landscape of the area.

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.

Sliding in Stowe

I’ve visited a whole bunch of New England’s waterfalls over the past few years for project work, and Stowe is without a doubt one of my favorite regions for exploring. While Moss Glen certainly changes with the seasons there is hardly a bad time for a visit and it was roaring nicely on this summer morning after a healthy dose of rain the night before.
