It’s moments like these that remind you how incredibly beautiful our world can be, and to appreciate the important things in life. ❤️ .

On that note, I’m having a print sale to raise money for a 4 yr old just diagnosed with stage IV cancer. If you’ve ever thought you might want some of my art on your walls, now would be a great time to do it.  🙂

My newest article, a basic guide to star trails came out in Light & Landscape Magazine . If you’ve ever thought you wanted to try to capture the movement between the planet and the stars (on purpose 😋), then you need to read this instructional guide! 📸🌠🌌 This photo is several exposures, stacked for the stars. Some friends and I went to Nubble lighthouse in Maine looking for northern lights , but the kp died down before we got there. Ah well…at least the stars were pretty. ❤️ Taken with a Nikon d810.

Access to clean water is something most Americans take for granted. However, globally there are approximately 783 million people without clean water and approximately 2.5 billion without adequate sanitation. This results in death and disease, impacts food yield, causes conflicts, reduces available time spent on education, promotes gender inequality and holds impoverished communities back. In other words, clean water is LIFE. What are you doing to protect it? 💦

I’ve recently been spending a lot of time under the stars with my camera. There is a peacefulness that comes from just watching the Milky Way move across the sky, reminding us we are just a small part of something infinitely larger than our daily schedules and obligations. If you find a spare moment on any given evening, I urge to look up and find some perspective. ❤️

A few weeks ago, my friends and I (David, Mel and Matt) had the pleasure of met up in the Adirondacks for a few days of fun and photos (if you follow me on the Instagrams or the Snapchats, you probably saw some of the shenanigans and bts posts).

We got one day of fancy light, and (of course) one day of overcast/rainy weather. You know the old saying though, right? When life hands you rainy lemons, make some waterfall-y lemonade! I’m 1000% certain that’s how the phrase goes.

This, btw, is Split Rock falls. On rainy days, there is only…like…two safe spots to shoot from. As you can guess, most of us chose adventure over safety. I’m not saying I was clinging to a slippery cliff…..earmuffs Mom! (*whispers* but I was definitely doing that. Many many many thanks to Matt for making sure I didn’t get dead!)

They say bad things come in 3’s, unless you’re one of the unfortunate few (me) for whom there is no limit to the amount of short straws you can draw at once. That means that like most stressed out Americans, I have a full complement of coping mechanisms.

 

Most of them involve alcohol and eating too much ice cream…er…I mean exercise and wholesome board games. But the best escape is through art! So sometimes when insomnia hits, I’ll take a drive with my camera.

 

This is the sort of magic I come home with….star trails obscured by a cloud bank and light pollution. Lol  At least it was pretty. 🙂

Want more info on how to make star trails?  Keep your eyes peeled for David and I’s next project!  You can sign up for our newsletter to stay informed about that.

Sometimes you drive two hours for a sunset, and end up wading through spring runoff to photograph a waterfall instead. Life, right?

But there is a lesson there (besides a reminder to buy waterproof boots)… Opportunity is all around us, we just have to be open to it.

This shot is a single exposure, taken after the sun went down in a rapidly darkening forest. ( 14mm, 55 second, f/8, ISO 100 ) It was very blue…because blue hour…and color correcting made it look natural, but not better, so I opted for B&W instead!
