Thanking Our Lucky Stars

Thanking Our Lucky Stars

 

Inspired by Adam Woodworth’s art talk during our SPA Spring Exhibit, I hopped in my car last night (9pm…really?) for a little “Star Chasing” and drove the loop from Alton, NH to Lincoln, then across the Kancamagus Highway and finally south through Barrington, New Hampshire and Home. Why I was completely alone at 1 am at a scenic outlook, high on the Kanc Highway, is rather humorous, if you think about it! I was constantly talking to myself. Mostly because I was spooked by the darkness and all the rustling in the woods everywhere I went. But the ever-present fireflies kept reminding me that there were nicer things in the dark, as well! And the fox kits running here and everywhere up in the White Mountains were my treat of the night. There were huge splashes in the water at my feet in Barrington that made me seriously grateful I didn’t live in the south for fear of losing a limb. However, the coyotes singing amongst the cacophony of bullfrogs and crickets reminded me of just how special a place that “Bog” will always to me.

And isn’t it funny that during my six hour adventure, I find my most compelling image was taken while laying in my very own driveway while attempting to capture a little slice of “Home” for my daughter living some 5,000 miles away. Yes, I now, I know, the odds are pretty good that she was also star gazing in her own backyard, laying under her palm tree and looking up at the very same sky. But the truth is, there will be no other view of the stars such as this. For THIS VIEW is where our Miss Meagan discovered “HER STARS”!

“Today We Welcome The Green”

Spring in New England can often feel elusive after a long, hard winter. This spring has proven to be such in that we have had little in the way of really warm, sunny days. However Spring, mo matter how long in coming, will not be stopped. In New Hampshire the trees have finally dropped their buds and the bright green leaves have exploded on our trees … seemingly all at once! Today we find ourselves welcoming the green! 2014 Pat Corlin Photography All Rights Reserved http://www.PatCorlinPhotography.com

“Waiting For The Grass To Grow”

Here in the state of New Hampshire, our haying season is a fairly short one. We just barely can squeeze in a second cut before the weather gets to cold at night and the grasses stop growing. If we are lucky we may get a stellar third cut and that hay often stays green in the barn throughout the entire winter. This spring is no different. The snows have melted and the grasses have sprouted. We all wait anxiously and “at the ready” for it to reach the right height. Then we begin to pray for  a few days of dry weather to cut it, fork it, dry it, bale it and put it up! Let’s hope this is a three cut summer!

NEW HAMPSHIRE Will Melt Your Heart

NH Will Melt Your Heart

After an incredibly busy week of eat, sleeping and drinking our JTT exhibit opening at the Main Street Art Gallery, I shared the joy of getting out early on Sunday with Chris Keeley of http://www.ChrisKeeleyPhoto.com and Meagan Corlin Brogan of http://www.ShutterForcePhotgraphy.com for some one on one shooting time. Ok, so two on one shooting time if we need to be technical  but it was the first time just the three of us got together to photograph since we traveled to Tanzania with The Giving Lens of http://www.TheGivingLens.com, last July. The climate was definitely different but the comradery was the undeniably the same. Image captured at the Cocheco Falls in Dover, NH.

It is late Autumn in New Hampshire and the peak foliage has passed. The colors are fading and the leaves are dropping and so we begin to ask, what shall we photograph now?!!

It is actually a fantastic time to photograph New England! That which was once obscured by dense foliage is no longer!  The  beautiful barns, covered bridges and rustic structures in the rural regions are much more visible now!

We have an entirely different view of … well … EVERYTHING!  So grab your cameras and your Photo Buddies and get out there and SHOOT!
