Glaciers I have known

“Hidden Lake” below Logan Pass, Glacier National Park, Montana















I’ve been thinking about a solo trip I took to Glacier National Park about 10 years ago. There were no more than 25 glaciers to see and identify; a small fraction of the 150 or so glaciers estimated to have inhabited the park about 100 years ago Some scientists are predicting that the number of measurable glaciers in the park will be zero within our lifetimes. To deny the existence of global warming is criminal. Government and business leaders who ignore the warming planet should leave their posts, willingly or not.

The Boston Symphony Orchestra was a frequent client for me in the early 80’s when I was first testing the waters of professional photography. I made this shot from a little window in the stage door, just large enough to position a 300mm lens. Absolute silence was required.

Harry Ellis Dickson was named Associate Conductor of the Boston Pops Orchestra in January 1980, and he was also founder, Artistic Director, and Conductor of the Boston Symphony Youth Concerts, as well as a member of the Boston Symphony’s Orchestra’s first violin section.

Plum Island — Fall afternoon

I’ve been visiting the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge in Newbury, MA since 1980. It’s always the same and different each time. The receding tide is magical. As always, these photographs are available as licensed images for commercial usa, and as custom archival prints for display.

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.

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.

Harvard Square

Here’s a view of moderately busy Harvard Square. Not the charming, rough edged place it once was, but still worth traversing. What is notable about this pic is that it was taken from the offices of Dewey, Cheatham, and Howe, a “law firm” that had a loose connection to Car Talk on NPR.

On this sunny fall afternoon I ascended to the 3rd floor of the building and found the “law office” occupied by an Ophthalmologist, who offered me an eye exam. He was kind enough to permit me to photograph the street below through his window.
