The early light of the rising sun reflects off of the surface of the lake. July 16, 2014. 

A ranunculus in my mother’s garden last spring. May 27, 2013. 

In May I went on a mini photography adventure to Lowell, Massachusetts. I love this shot of the light of the sunset reflecting off the bridge late in the dusky evening. May 31, 2014. 

A fly-fisherman at dawn on the shore of Long Pond, in the Adirondack Mountains. July 18, 2014. 

I love the colors in this shot from Boston’s 4th of July fireworks. July 3, 2014. 

The light of the sunset through the trees on my first night camping in the Adirondacks with my mom two weeks ago. July 16, 2014.

It’s been a crazy two weeks of travel since then (home from NY back to MA for one night, to AZ for two nights, back to MA for one night, to NYC for two nights, back to MA for one night, to DC for two nights, and back to MA today finally for two more nights) and I would do nearly anything to be back there again! 

I love the way the droplet of water on the end of the leaf captures the light of the rising sun. July 16, 2014. 

The silhouette of these flowers and their stark black reflections adds even more drama to the reflection of the sunrise on the water. July 16, 2014.

There’s something about B&W that really emphasizes how stunning this scene was. July 18, 2014.

Last week’s campsite on Long Pond, in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York. I wish I were still there…

On my first morning on the lake, I woke up at 4.30am to try to catch the blue hour before the sunrise. The light was unimpressive for quite a while, but it gave me time to identify my framing and once the sun rose the light began to create magnificent reflections on the water, helping me make this image (ripples in the water are due to the fact that little fish were attempting to nibble at my toes as I stood knee deep in the water to line up this frame, and I couldn’t help but twitch after each little fishy-nibble, and therefore moving the water surface).

This moth helpfully landed on this flower while I was lining up the shot. July 18, 2014. 

I awoke before sunrise on two of my three mornings out on the lake this last week to try to capture the morning glow over the lake. The mist was already floating across the lake when I made it out of the tent at 5am on our last morning on the lake, and the fog started to roll in shortly after from above - which completely obscured any sight of the sun, but helped me find this image instead!
