Fishing Boat On the Ways

I’ve done a lot of photography on Cape Ann. One of my favorite locations to shoot is the Gloucester Marine Railways, which refers to the huge sled-like machine that can pull a multi ton boat of the water. It is on the ways. Which version do you like? Drop me a note at the bottom.

Back to the farm.

If you follow my work on this and other web sites you know I have a strong connection to the Appleton Farms & Grass Rides property in Ipswich and Hamilton, MA. Managed by The Trustees of Reservations it is said to be the oldest continuously used farm in America — established 1638. Closed to the public for a few months due to Clovid-19, Molly and I were happy to return to the re-opened farm. Photos made with new iPhone SE, processed in Adobe Lightroom.

Red Maple Tree Silhouette

The colors this year in Eastern Mass have been on the dull side I regret. But I know I can almost always find a winner in the nearby woods.

White Mountains In Peak Color

Columbus Day weekend means thousands of leaf-peepers invade The White Mountain National Forest, and I have avoided this weekend for years, until now. And, what a reward! I explored many familiar waterfalls, scenic vistas, and easy trails. Equipped with one Nikon body just two lenses, a pouch of filters, and my new secret weapon — a drone— I managed to avoid most of the traffic, get some good shots and met some nice people. Among those was a Brazilian photographer, and an attractive bridal couple getting their “formals” taken on the Tuckerman Ravine Trail.

Please click on the thumbnails to view the shots full-screen. As always, these photographs are available for licensing or purchase as fine art prints.

Mt. Chocorua above Lake Chocorua is the most-climbed peak in the White Mountain National Forest. I’ve enjoyed its fall colors, swam it many times, and once watched the start of a dog-sled race.
Mt. Chocorua and Lake Chocorua were frequent subjects of the 19th century White Mountain School of painters, but never from 400 feet in the air.. The peak at 3490 feet has a bare rocky summit giving it an alpine appearence.
