Yin Yang :: NH

“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.” – Og Mandino

Now that the weather is warming up, I’ve been spending as much time hiking as I can. Saw this gem on a day trip to New Hampshire. ❤

“As long as I live, I’ll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I’ll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I’ll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can.” – John Muir

A shot from the archives, when we went to Montreal and stopped to take foliage shots along the way. ❤

Tethered :: NH

3 Feb

Another one from the archives. It was a beautiful, foggy sunrise and after I’d taken my grand landscape shots, we wandered a bit to see if anything caught our eyes. The dog was happy just to sniff around while I took photos of this and that.

Suddenly, the dog’s ears perked up and my other half called over to me. “Did you hear that?”

Do photographers EVER hear things when they’re lost in their creative flow? The obvious answer was no.

But, he swore up and down that he caught a glimpse of something BIG in the woods near the pond. And being in moose and bear territory, we decided it was time to shove off.

At least I got this photo. 🙂

It being winter, and all, I figured I should post a photo of some snow. 🙂

Small Business Saturday

28 Nov

Being a small business myself, I’m a big fan of supporting local entrepreneurs. ESPECIALLY this year, where so many people are economically impacted by Covid. So, I strongly encourage anyone shopping this year to consider supporting local artists, authors, musicians, crafters, breweries, etc. in their communities.

Through December 1, 2020, I’m running a 20% off sale on four sizes of paper prints: 8×10, 11×14, 11×16 and 16×20. You can see my landscape gallery here.

  • 8×10: Normally $25, NOW $20
  • 11×14: Normally $33, NOW $26.40
  • 11×16: Normally $34, NOW $27.20
  • 16×20: Normally $75, NOW $60

**Shipping, if needed, will be an additional cost. Custom cut mats available, cost based on print size.**

Want something other than paper? Canvas? Metal? Contact me at seespotsphoto@yahoo.com and we’ll chat!

The day before had been dreary. Foggy. Damp. But eventually, the sun shines again. ❤

A wonderful metaphor for life, eh?

2020 has been difficult for most of us, but I believe it will get better.  Not just with time–though, of course that will be needed–but with a positive outlook, ingenuity, pairing common sense and sound science, perseverance, and with making sure your elected officials consider your needs when making policy.  If you’re unhappy with how 2020 has been progressing, then you need to make your voice heard.  VOTE!

(Or cloud-drenched, in this case. ☝🏻)

I miss traveling.  I miss taking photos worth editing.  My inner gypsy is getting restless.

That time I drove and hour and a half, pre-pandemic, to see a sunset. You can tell this is sunset, right?  Right!!??

Do you think they’ll start labeling time in Pandemic terms?  “The year 2024 PP (Post Pandemic)”
