On my canoe in the Adirondacks trip last week, my mother and I went on a little excursion behind our site up a boggy river. I couldn’t resist this classic canoe-shot: the bow of the boat pointing ahead towards the waters to be explored. July 17, 2014.

When I posted this pictures on Facebook, I did so under the caption “There was a wedding and it was fabulous.”  It was wonderful to be home in New York’s Adirondack Mountains for the occasion of my cousin’s wedding, looking out at the view of the peaks beyond the tent from the festivities!

My only decent image of the Super Moon last Saturday, from the mountainside in the Adirondack Mountains where we were celebrating my cousin’s wedding! July 12, 2014.

Last August I went on an afternoon canoe in the Adirondacks with my parents - and took this and a few other images before my Canon T2i got rained out permanently. Nearly a year later, today I’m heading on a three day canoe trip with my family armed with my Canon 6D, two batteries, my 24-105 f4 and lens-filters, one “nifty-fifty”, and a 70-300 f4-5.6 for birds. I’m hoping not to get rained on this time (the weather looks clear, knock on wood!) - but I’m equipped with rainproofing if necessary, and am appreciative of the weather sealed quality of the 6D.  August 31, 2013. 

Attended my cousin’s wedding yesterday in my hometown, and it was stunning. July 12, 2014.

Raindrops on a spring flower in my mother’s garden. May 24, 2014.

Dawn on the bay: an inlet off the Piscataqua River outside Portsmouth, New Hampshire, catching the light of the rising sun. July 6, 2014.

Pinwheel-like-fireworks explode over the Charles River in Boston for the 4th of July. July 3rd, 2014. 

I love this shot from Thursday night’s fireworks - theres’s something about the golden sparks that reminds me that fireworks are actually fires (exploding, often colorful fires, but fires just the same). July 3, 2014. 

This weekend I traveled to Portsmouth, NH to visit my aunt, and woke up at 4am Sunday morning to catch some pre-dawn photos on the seacoast. July 6, 2014.

Fireworks from the 4th of July celebration in Boston. For some reason this image makes me think of fire breathing dragons - maybe they’re jet black against a black sky, breaking orange flames into the night?  July 3, 2014.
