Happy 80th Birthday Grandpa!

Rocks and fog

I think seeing my grandpa's excitement of exploring had a lot to do with my connection to nature. Although I didn't realize it when I was younger, I have to thank him for the important role he has played in my photography and spirit. Millerton lake fog and rocks just after sunrise. Happy Birthday to a thoroughly impressive man.

Portrait of a Leaf


I'm a big advocate of learning to enjoy the simple things nature has to offer. Recognition of it's perfection is a spiritual thing indeed. I saw a nice leaf and put it on a black background, opened the blinds and photographed it. I love this leaf like sun loves clover.

Once in a Blue Moon

winter blue moon

Happy new year everyone! This last thursday a blue moon shed some light on the coming year. According to a few things I was reading online, the phenomenon of having two full moons in one month (or a blue moon) occurs on average every 2.7 years. This last time this happened on new years eve was in 1990 and it wont happen again until 2028. A great way to start the new year!
