“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!

Whaleback Lighthouse

Fort Foster, Kittery, Maine

At the mouth of the Piscataqua River, sits the historic Whaleback Lighthouse, built in 1872 to replace the original light, heavily damaged by storms. It is built of granite, a stone quite common in New Hampshire and Maine, and is not painted. Some say this is the least glamorous of light houses but I actually love the way look as it compliments the natural beauty of the Northeastern Atlantic coast.

Snowy Owls On The New Hampshire Coast, What A Treat!

Snowy Owls On The New Hampshire Seacoast!

Snowy Owls On The New Hampshire Seacoast!

My Office Today!

Snowy Owls on the New Hampshire Seacoast, what a treat! I was traveling from “here to there” and had a few hours to spare so I decided to take the scenic route, wondered if I would be lucky enough to see my first Snowy Owl in the wild. Soooo much buzz in the Northeast photography community about the extraordinarily large and frequent sitings this winter of this beautiful raptor. Serendipity! I hadn’t driven more than 5 miles along the coast of Rye when I spied this beautiful girl sitting on rooftop, observing both the sea and the marshes from her high vantage point. First I slammed the car into park, grabbed the camera and sprinted, fearing she would fly away and I’d miss the opportunity to capture an image or two. With no one home at the boarded up summer home, a few of us brazen photogs decided to invite ourselves into the back yard and there she was … and there she stayed … for two full hours! Maybe longer, but I wouldn’t know, as I eventually had to leave. During that time, however, I was able to return to my car for tripod and photograph to my to my hearts content as she was quite disinterested in the clicking of shutters and chatter amongst the humans below.

Again, I say to Mother Nature … GRATITUDE!

“Superstitious Sunset”

Beautiful and breathtaking scenery, am I right?  This sunset was captured while driving on The Apache Trail. It was once used by the Apache Indians to travel through the mountains and then became a main trail for the stage coach. On our maps today, you will see it listed as “STATE ROUTE 88” and it winds it’s way for 40 miles through the Tonto Forest and the Superstition Mountains of the Greater Phoenix, Arizona area.

The guide books tell you it is a “must drive” journey, as you will see incredible, varied dessert and mountain terrain and drive right by the  impressive Theodore Roosevelt Lake and Hydroelectric Power Dam.  But do not be deceived! No matte what the guide books and tourists tell you it being “bumpy but doable” route,  you had best rent yourself a vehicle with sturdy tires accustomed to off road-ing!   A good … and I mean GOOD … LONG portion of this road is not paved, pitted with deep holes, very bumpy and often only wide enough for one car to pass. The pin turns can be very treacherous and high on mountainside cliffs that are without guard rails that are built to stop a car from careening to certain death if the driver isn’t paying full attention, at all times. Oh and did I mention to plan on taking nearly 4 hours to cross? It is longer than you think when you can only drive 15 miles an hour. To add to the danger there are NO street lights and it is really, and I mean REALLY dark up there! So be advised to make it a morning trip or at least be certain you are at the end of the journey by dusk. And watch out for animals! The Coyotes are plentiful and dash before your headlights and you never see them coming.

This all sounds like a lot of doom and gloom but I offer this advise only to help you to be prepared so that you can actually enjoy the stunning beauty of this drive.  Take my advice and rent the jeep and it absolutely is a “must drive” adventure, you won’t be sorry!

The Colors Of Montreal

The Colors Of Montreal

As I was making my way back to my hotel after visiting the Old City, I rounded the corner and stepped on to Rue St Antoine St W and BAM! I was hit by a joyous wall of brilliant color that is110 meters long and numerous stories high! The iconic glass facade of the Palais de Congress de Montreal is a kaleidoscope of color with 332 colored glass panels and 58 transparent glass panels. Canadian architect, Hal Ingberg created the colored panels by sandwiching colored Vanceva polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer between two panels of glass! Sadly, I was running late and could only capture one quick image as I literally ran by and I made a note to schedule many hours inside this building on my next trip back to this wonderful city.
