I don’t actually have anything new to share, but wanted to touch base. I haven’t abandoned the site or anything, just due to the whole COVID thing, I haven’t been out shooting. All the restrictions and such weigh a bit on my patience, so ended up not going anywhere for the entirety of 2020. I’m hoping things loosen up a bit this year and maybe I can get out a bit again. Maybe a small trip to get the feel again… feels like an eternity after that horrid year.
In the meantime, I got into investing and back into a little web design. Fully redesigned my old website from the ground up to look a bit more like 2021 and less like 2007… when I stopped. So still keeping busy! Hopefully soon I’ll have some shoots to share again.
A perfect day for my annual run up to New Hampshire to catch the Fall colors show. Last year I did the Kancamagus, ended up with a lot of fog... perfect clear skies this time around! First hit a few stops along the Kancamagus Highway for some views, then over to Artist's Bluff for a hike up the relatively small mountain for some spectacular views of Echo Lake. Then of course back down for a quick walk down by Echo Lake itself to cap off the day.
Thanks to a local city charity, admission to the Aquarium was free this month, so why not take in a visit? Nice ride in and out of Boston on a ferry made for a relaxing day trip. Nothing much ever changes at the Aquarium, but still an interesting visit. Did shooting around a little different this time with just using an 85mm prime.
After doing a mountain hike for the last trip, I figured it was time for a more relaxing one. Looking for new areas to explore, I happened upon this farm out in central MA that looked fairly interesting and it certainly didn't disappoint. A fully active farm complete with hiking trails and something of a nature reserve all rolled into one... couldn't go wrong! Beautiful day, lots of dragonflies around keeping the mosquitoes away and not too crowded. Well worth the trip.
The warm weather is finally back, so time to get out hiking! Haven't done Mt. Major in 3 years, so figured I'd see how much my fitness has improved over that time... was not disappointed. Took on the blue trail up for a pleasant hike and rock scramble to the summit. New bug spray worked a charm as I wasn't bit or bothered the whole way. Great views of the Lakes region from up top... some of the best in the area actually and for a quick mile and a half up, quite the "bang for the buck" so to speak.
