This one was an adventure and a half. Weather was perfect... beautiful morning. Only problem that presented was it made for a perfect day for the black flies to come out in a swarming feeding frenzy. So along with this hike/climb being a true physical test, I had to constantly be swatting around like a mad man. Not that it helped much... still got eaten, but I tried. Insects out in parts of NH like that really don't care what repellent you have on. I did spray myself, but those little buggers laughed it off and dined on me all day anyway.
That aside, it was a great hike and climb... tons of rock scrambling all the way up with phenomenal views as soon as half way up. Took a couple hours each way on the steep white dot trail... great hike.
Spring has definitely sprung and away I go! This week checked out Tower Hill in Spring time as opposed to my summer excursion last summer and winter run for Winter Reimagined. Also did a shoot with a few lovely subjects out in Rockport, so it's been a good week out with the camera.
Tower Hill was great as usual.... tons of colorful tulips all over and of course, my main reason for checking it out for Spring, the enormous daffodil field. Keep this great weather rollin!
Almost a couple months since last entry... can you tell I don't like the cold weather of winter? Since the last entry, I did have one pretty cool happening... one of my shots from my January non-profit shoot was selected as the cover photo for a local University magazine as well as a big two page spread shot inside, so I've actually been published!
Now that the weather has started kicking up and Spring is finally making it's way out here, took in a little trip to Greenlawn Cemetery for a lil wildlife shoot.
Obviously I've been in hibernation as per the lack of entries here. I did do one private shoot for a non-profit early last month, but aside from that... fairly inactive with shooting. So the other night I experimented with shoot water droplets again and also broke out my fotodiox studio and tried out some product photography with a few things in my collection.
With this, I'm finally all caught up with my trips... hallelujah! So this one was the "Winter Reimagined" event over at Tower Hill Botanic Garden. A very impressive and large holiday lights display set across a large portion of the grounds. This is one of those rare places that legitimately feels magical to walk through. The lights were immaculately set.... some interesting ones were animated like snow-lights falling off the trees. Then one of my favorites was walking through a portion of the wooded area and seeing nearly the entire woods high in the treetops, twinkling all around... felt like being in some kinda fantasy setting. I only wish they had more, but totally realize what an enormous undertaking it was to create what they did. Very worth a visit.
