I’m Just Gonna Keep Walkin’ ‘til I Find Spring …

“I’m Just Gonna Keep Walkin’ ‘til I Find Spring...”

“I’m Just Gonna Keep Walkin’ ‘til I Find Spring…”

The North American, Virginia Opossum makes it’s home in the state of New Hampshire but not much further north than that. They do not hibernate and must come out of their dens and search for food all winter long. Their coats are rather thin and their tails, ears and feet are bare so they are very vulnerable to frostbite. This far north they rarely live longer than two years. These mammals are marsupials, meaning they are born very small and continue to develop in the mother’s abdominal pouch. They are nocturnal and are not often seen in daylight, so I felt fortunate to come across this one out for a walk in the early morning light.

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.

Silent Departure

While photographing a lone Snowy Owl on the seacoast in Massachusetts, another descended silently onto the marsh … and then there were two! Settling in for a short spell, this new owl seemed content to visit just long enough so that anyone with a camera had the opportunity to capture a few good images … and then, without warning … a silent departure.

It’s funny how the “back story” behind the shot is quite often why I become so attached to an image, even more than the elements in the shot. Picture this,  up and out pre-dawn to meet my shooting buddy and photog extraordinaire Chris Keeley Photography. An hour to the location, temps in the teens. I cant get my winter coat over my arm cast so I was wearing many layers with my husbands heavy duty hoodie over it all, hand wrapped in a winder ski hat (can’t get a glove on) with a heat packet flopping around inside, secured to the cast with a rubber band. Gear was mounted on the tripod so I could maneuver (not very gracefully I might add) with one hand. Had a Starbucks hot grande skinny vanilla latte at my feet, two slow moving and very accommodating Snowy Owls to photograph and grin on my face the entire morning. I love the resulting, image, the great company that was with me when I captured it and the effort it took to accomplish it. That’s a Hat Trick for me 😉
