When my Sony projection television died, I figured it would have some interesting optics including a high quality first surface mirror.  The mirror was large enough to accommodate a large sunflower blossom. This gave me a way to capture a view of the sky. In the last photo I was able to get a worm’s eye view of a sunflower.

Good morning, spring is less than a month away. In May of 2006 we visited our daughter when she was running in the Burlington Marathon in Vermont. This photo was taken of the Breakwater North Light in Lake Champlain.

Good morning, I’ve reached back in the archives a bit for this photo of Sacred Heart Church in Greenville, NH.  I have been inside this church many times but never noticed the statue until I took this photo in HDR. I find that photography makes me pay closer attention to details.

The Sky was on Fire

Severe weather was predicted all day, however we were spared any damaging wind and hail. Instead we were given a spectacular light show around dusk here in New Ipswich. It was hard to capture the colors as I saw them. The leaves and sky were on fire.
