Avalanche Falls

A few days in Franconia, New Hampshire, offer a lot of possibilities of places to go especially for hikes.  One very popular place is Flume Gorge in Franconia Notch State Park.  This is a natural gorge with granite walls rising to a height of 90 feet. However, if you plan to visit to get good … More Avalanche Falls

Sugar Hill Sunrise

New Hampshire is like visiting an old friend from college.  You always think back to the good times and think it won’t be the same, but it is, with all the many quirks you remember. Last week I drove from Massachusetts to Littleton, close to the lupines at Sugar Hill, NH.  There is a lupine … More Sugar Hill Sunrise

Relic

It’s funny to think when you look for an interesting foreground element that there may be more history behind it than you would have imagined.

It was going to be a full moon and I wanted to find a lighthouse where the moon rises behind it.  I used The Photographer’s … More Whaleback Moonshine

A Fresh Start

Well, it has been a very interesting week for me!  I have worked in research at the same company for 20 years.  This week I was told my position has been eliminated, thank you for your service.  I feel lighter, with new possibilities to explore.  I spent the next few days out and about around … More A Fresh Start

Numbers

Welcome.  This is my first blog, which is unusual for a 48 year old, I would imagine. I was born in North West England in 1968 (I’ll get to more of that) and moved to the US in 1995. My Mum and Dad gave me some pics (below).  Very fashionable for the early seventies.  I … More Numbers
