Here are some more pictures I took on our trip to New Hampshire with my Canon EOS Rebel, in the order they were shot. We made quite a few stops on the way up to get many of  these shots. … Continue reading

Rattlesnake Mountain (Tekoa)


1 May 2012:  Tekoa Mountain from General Knox Road.  Taken with the Canon EOS Rebel XS  with kit lens, F-stop 5.1.  Original picture was very dark, so I used photoshop PW actions: lighten, boost , warmer, and quick edge burn.  I love the different shades of color in spring as well as in the fall.

Gratitude Gives Back Project

Coffee table book

I’ve mentioned before about wanting to create some kind of coffee table book of my photos as Christmas gifts for family and friends.  I started that project last evening. But – there are thoughts of another project growing in my mind lately ( I just realized I sound like Galadriel there, Hahahaha), and I need some feedback. Here’s what I’m thinking, for those who are interested  and/or interested in participating –

Gratitude Gives Back Project:

Let’s a few of us collaborate on a photography book. is the service I currently use, but there are plenty of websites that allow folks to submit and share photos and work on projects together. We submit our favorites to the site and pick those we want to have in say, a 20-30 page book including a picture of the photographer(s) and a short bio.  Then, we take orders, and donate an agreed upon percentage or amount to a charity of our choice.  the website will ship the book directly to the customer.  We could pick one charity, or we could each have our own one or two and rotate months through the  year (so depending on what month someone orders the book that’s where the donation would go).  It’s a rough idea-in-progress at the moment; BUT if you like it, and/or want to jump on board – please let me know.

Poetry would be cool to include also!
