Along the Road: In the Rain


I like taking black and white photographs, while color gives you a "real life" perspective, there is nothing quite like the power this scene represents when displayed in this format.

The color image of this same photograph is below so that you can see what I mean.

Along the Road: Clift in the Rain


28 August 2011 will be known as the day that 
Hurricane Irene passed through Vermont leaving 
in her wake considerable destruction.  
This is what I was able to capture about today.

enormously talented wife Nancy. 

 This time the artists is Jennifer Chasalow VanBenschoten,  
 as you can see she is very a talented.

Me and My Shadow

ISO 400 200mm lens f/8 1/500th of a second

This afternoon while returning home I was traveling on Vermont Route 149 near the New York border, I saw in a field off the side of the road a female deer, she appear to be alone as I got closer I found this was not the case.  It is not to unusual to see deer in this area, even in the middle of the day, what was different was the fact that these two were with her.  A mother and twin fawns, it is rare to see twin white tail deer, many don't survive due to allot of reasons but these two where happy and healthy.  May be a little to adventurous when mother deer saw me she turned and went back into the woods, these two came within 25 feet of me standing on the side of the road.  After taking several photographs I said the them "shouldn't you two go find your mother"  and this is what happened.  

Today was a good day!!!!!!

Cherry Blossom Time

Every year about this time our front yard is on fire with the blossoms from this tree, it is one of the most spectacular sites I have ever seen.    In a couple of weeks if the rain doesn't do to much damage the flowers it will be in full bloom, a better show than fall foliage by far.
