My iPhone 6 Project: Winter Lake

Lee, Massachusetts

Today's travels brought me to South Western Massachusetts, in the Berkshires to this small lake along Route 20.  As you can see it was right at dusk.

My iPhone Project: Winter Wonderland

Groton, Vermont 

In September 2012 I began "My iPhone Project" which has consisted of a series of Photographs taken only with my iPhone 4 smart phone.  The idea for the project stemmed from a photography exhibit that I attended at the Sharon Arts Center in Peterborough, NH.   

For the past 2+ years I have added to this album from that phone camera.   Today's photograph is the last that I have taken with that iPhone 4.  It has been retired in favor of an iPhone 6.  I will continue the iPhone 6 project documenting the things that interest me as I travel around New England and New York.

Is it Spring yet

It is the day after Thanksgiving 2014, it snowed all day Wednesday and a lot of people- including myself- posted photographs of said snow some of which were creative, some just documentary. 

I'm a life long Vermonter, so snow and ice are all part of living here - but after the magic of the first snowfall has passed, it's just cold.  

Don't get me wrong, if I was in a warm climate I'd complain as well!

My idea of winter is as follows: it can snow from about Thanksgiving until January 15th then temperatures should warm up to 65 or 70 and stay that way until the next fall.  

Now, I have suggested this plan to mother nature for the last oh! 20 years or so,  and we've all seen what kind of pull I've had with her.  She just giggles at me and then it rains.  

So onto the photographs!  We have a tree in our front yard with this great long void in the center.  I have no idea how deep it goes but in recent years squirells have taken to nesting in it.  I've seen as many a 6 at a time running up and down the center of the trunk, chasing each other and playing.   A little taste of spring at the beginning of winter.  ;-)

Out for a walk

Townshend Lake, Townshend Vermont 

This afternoon Nancy and I went out for a walk, I took my DSLR along, and took several images to create this 9 shot stitch. It covers approximately 200 degrees of angle. It was an excellent day for photographs and even better for a walk.  

Imagine what these mountains will be like in a few weeks, 
fall is on the way ;-)

My iPhone Project: Shape, Texture and Colors

Wendell, Massachusetts

I was travelling today in the Wendell, MA area and found 
this giant pile of rocks and debris, over 10 feet tall. It appeared to 
be left over flood damage from Hurricane Irene.  The shapes, 
textures and colors really caught my attention and I made 
this image with my iPhone.

Visitors this afternoon


While outside with the dogs this afternoon I noticed we had visitors, four in all once the dogs went back in the house I was able to get these photographs of them.
