Fireworks 1

Boston Pops Independence Day Fireworks!

This was my first time at the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular, and I have to say, I really lucked out. I had a spot right across the river, with a great view of the skyline and the fireworks. I got drenched in the rain, and it took me two hours to get home, but it…

Lemur 6

Ruffled Lemur

Here’s another series of images from the Duke Lemur Center in Durham, NC. When you join the lemurs at feeding time, the ruffled lemurs are the first ones you see. They are bigger than the ring-tailed lemurs, so they eat first. The ring-tailed lemurs try to nab the food quickly and run up the trees before…

Ring-Tailed Lemur

Duke University has the largest population of lemurs in the world outside of their native Madagascar. You can visit the lemurs in Duke Forest during feeding time if you want a chance to get close.  These are the ring-tailed lemurs, though Duke has a lot of different kinds of lemur. You have to walk through…

Baby Hamadryas Baboon

I used to spend a lot of time photographing at the North Carolina Zoo when I lived down there.  It sits on an enormous plot of land and hosts animals from two continents: North America and Africa.  I am always struck by the sheer size of the place.  It tends to be pretty empty in…

Arethusa Falls

Here’s a shot from spring 2013. It is actually one of the first waterfalls I visited in the New Hampshire’s White Mountains. I had reserved my spot at the campsite down the road and decided to try and catch some shots before sundown. It’s a bit of a hike, but well worth it when you…

Bird in Water

Here’s a blast from the past. I caught this guy in 2007 when I was in Elm Park in Worcester, MA. Some kids were feeding the ducks and the geese, and I saw this one hanging around. I shot this with a Rebel XT and Canon’s 70-300 lens. Who says you need top notch equipment…

Fallen Leaves in New Hampshire

Fallen Leaves in The White Mountains

This is my last image from the Cascade Brook Trail in Franconia Notch. This shot came just after peak foliage, where the leaves that had fallen were still very colorful. I really liked the way that they fell on either side of the stream, so I tried to capture it here. Like this:Like Loading…
