Abby the Great

Abby had ACL surgery in September of ’13 so we were more than a little concerned that she would not be able to hunt again.  We went out on Saturday for a short hunt at Black Meadow in New York’s Warwick Valley.  We put four birds out and she found five – not unusual for Abby, she is always cleaning up after lesser dogs….

A walk through Siena

While in Tuscany this summer we spent a few hours walking around Siena . A spectacular Tuscan hill town, Siena is a wonderful walk through the middle ages. These ancient iron rings are throughout Siena. Used to secure your horse (or other animal) while you did business in town, they are so well used that indents from the ring striking the wall can be…

Birdman at Musée du Louvre

Sometimes the street is a wonderful place. While walking the grounds of the Louvre I encountered this special soul.

Tin Cup

One of my earliest memories is of my grandfather working out by the barn on a hot summer day. He would occasionally stop and walk over to the hand pump by the basin we used to draw water for the cattle, grab an old tin cup that was there and pump the handle of the well pump, running the water until it was cold….

Edgartown Harbor Storm – iPhone Art

Taken from the harbor on my iPhone while on a sailing trip around the island. The power and size of the storm is obvious when you compare the size of the un-landed tornado in the top right third of the image with the Edgartown Lighthouse below and to the left of it (its the little white speck).

Statue of Neptune on the fountain in Piazza della Signoria in Florence, Italy.

Statue of Neptune on the fountain on Piazza della Signoria in Florence, Italy. This was taken about midnight in the Piazza. It was one of those nights when everything seemed perfect – location, light, temperature and the energy in the Piazza.

Faith – Norton Point

There is nothing like black and white on the beach.

Nobska Point lighthouse – cape cod

I have wanted a shot of the Nobska Point Lighthouse from the bay side for some time but never really had good light at the right time of the day. This shot was taken a little after 12PM on a day with good light and low humidity with my Canon 5D Mk3 and EF70-200 using a 2x converter @ 400mm effective. I shot three…

retired silo – chester, new york

The Warwick Valley has many old barns that are no longer in use. These artifacts reflect a lost age in rural farming in New York. Just a few decades ago every town in Upstate New York had several working dairy farms that served the locals and sold milk, butter and often cheese to the larger cities in New York and points south. I would…

K.C.

A sunny day on Martha’s Vineyard’s Norton Point in 2005, sitting under an umbrella watching the kids in the ocean. Direct and defused lighting made this an interesting shot. I converted to Black and White in Silver Efex Pro then cleaned up in Photoshop.
