Finally! I've successfully taken on of these cliche shots.

The Importance of Framing – a Hunt vs. a Walk

I rarely have completely unsuccessful shoots or photo walks. Even if I don’t get the particular shot I had in mind, I usually capture something that I would consider a keeper, and frequently come back with an image much better

Adirondack dirt road during the winter around susnet

Weekly Photo Challenge: Resolved

I’m not a New Year’s resolution type of person, so I can’t fulfill this challenge in a literal manner. However, I do plan to hone my technical skills this year, and these shots are representative of that desire. My fancy

Droughts and Silver Mines: A Silver Creek Adventure

One of my friends from high school has a waterfall in her back yard (well, her parents’ back yard, now that she’s moved). I never spent much time at her house, but every time I visited I just wanted to

Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 in Pictures (Waterfall Edition!)

Snow Day: Digging Out of a Rut

After last year and its extremely lackluster “storms,” I’ve been delighted the past day as the snow has continued to fall. However, as much as I like snow, I’m always disappointed when I run out and attempt to photograph it.
