Taking Flight – A blue heron at the Rockefeller Preserve…

Sometimes you just get lucky.  The trip I made to  the Rockefeller Preserve about a week ago was my first in quite a long time.  Those of you who know me know that I have had a rough time with an ongoing ankle problem.  This has been rough because I […]

Bufflehead making waves – The Rockefeller Preserve

Bufflehead making waves – The Rockefeller Preserve

I’ve been struggling with a bout of bronchitis over the past few days.  The enforced “rest” has been frustrating…although productive in its own strange way.  I took the time to learn some new techniques on photoshop… Admittedly, I was working somewhat “passively” since I was really pretty miserable.   But […]

Scenes from winter – Philipsburg Manor

Scenes from winter – Philipsburg Manor

The famous Philipsburg Manor located right across the road from the Old Dutch Church and the Headless Horseman Bridge….Since the manor is part of the Historic Hudson Valley, we don’t think about it in  terms of the dead of winter.  But here it is covered in snow.  I generally think […]

Lighthouse Landing – Some things just look better in black and white

Almost every shutterbug in Westchester NY takes photos of Lighthouse Landing in Sleepy Hollow at some point in their lives.  One can’t argue that there is a dearth of photos on this particular subject.  I guess I’m no exception to the rule because I have quite a few photos of […]

Can two photos of the same subject be entirely different? Yes!

Recently I  was working on a project that had me taking quite a few photos of the same or similar subjects.   In one case, I was trying to capture the Sleepy Hollow Lighthouse with the old Tappan Zee Bridge in the background.  The photo above was the second attempt […]

Vivid Sunset on the Hudson River – Sleep Hollow NY

Lately I’ve been taking a lot of photos along the Hudson River.  The sheer concentration on the Hudson River was due in part to a client who had some very specific requests with the Hudson River as the subject.  And although I have taken many photos along the river and […]

Happy 4th of July – Fireworks Display from Tarrytown & Sleepy Hollow NY

Happy 4th of July – Fireworks Display from Tarrytown & Sleepy Hollow NY

Fireworks are really fun to photograph, if you know what you are doing.  Personally, I love taking photos of fireworks on the water because you get the added benefit of the water reflection which seems to make them extra special.  Sister villages Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow joined forces once again […]

The Sun Sets on the Boys of Summer…

The Sun Sets on the Boys of Summer…

It’s been a week since the beginning of the Labor Day weekend and most of us are back to our old routines.  Although traditionally we celebrate New Year’s in January, September seems to be a point of demarkation and renewal for most of us.  The summer is over, if you […]

Feast for a butterfly…

Feast for a butterfly…

Sometimes something small can be a really big thing.  Because I photograph homes, I guess I naturally tend towards wide-angle photography and large landscapes.  But not always.  Sometimes something small really catches the eye and I go the other way.  I was in a dog park with my two huskies […]

Sunset on the Hudson…

Sunset on the Hudson…

This is a fairly early experiment in HDR.  It was a cloudy night on the Hudson River and the sun was setting.  Clouds and HDR just seem to go together like ham and eggs, so I decided to give it a try.  It was the 4th of July so all […]
