I spent a chunk of the last week in April on Cape Cod. On one of my walks down a Bell’s Neck in Harwich I watched about a half a dozen osprey hunt/fish. I took well over 200 photos! The sky was awful – it was cloudy and about noon.
My camera also did a weird thing in its focusing and exposure. I have noticed that occasionally some settings will seem to change randomly. Long and short, the exposures were awful for anything not pointing at the water. The sun did eventually come out and a couple of osprey flew by, so I have a couple of “sunny photos”.

There are many streams and rivers in and around Wilton, New Hampshire. Since Wilton is also on the edge of the bigger hills of southern NH, there are several waterfalls.
Just a few miles from my house there is a very pretty falls that everyone knows about and visits. Actually, I haven’t been in a few years, but I used to go all of the time. Here is an older photo of it taken in early winter (yes, that is snow).
A little farther out, and just over the border into Mt. Vernon and Milford, is Purgatory Brook with the three main Purgatory Falls, Upper, Middle and Lower, plus many pretty smaller falls. Last year I did a post on this beautiful hike. Here is a photo from Monday. Continue reading →
This post is about ducks and things of that nature.
Ducks are pretty common. Mot just that, but there are many types of ducks. The most common through most of the year are the mallards. Everyone knows them. We take them for granted, but they are quite pretty. Here are some mallards, though this is an older photo. Continue reading →
I have not done a photo post in ages. I used to do one a week. I’ve been caught up in other things and actually have over 1000 photos from August 2017 – December 2017 that I have not even looked at. It’s hard to go back, but I decided to go through all of photos I took this winter and early spring. Almost all of the photos were from the last two trips to Cape Cod – last weekend (around April 14) and around March 31.
I decided to do four posts. I will make the links “hot” as I put up each new post.
The next day after St. Mary’s Glacier, we headed north again but this time passed by Boulder and drove to the Rocky Mountain National Park. After a few stops, we did a hike up to Fern Falls. Although the round trip should have been short, the late hour of arrival made it so the round trip hike was over 8 miles/13 km. Continue reading →
I spent a few days in Colorado earlier this month. As I went through all of the photos, I decided I needed to divide them in half. OK, the photos really weren’t since the second half has more, but the days were. (part 2)
On our first full day we went to Boulder. Our first stop was at NCAR, a really high profile weather station. Besides looking around the exhibits, which are aimed more at children, we walked a bit outside.
We then went into town and shopped for a while. We then stopped at Chautuaqua Park for a short walk before heading back to the Denver area. Continue reading →
Since I need to go through all of the photos I took in Colorado and I know I’ll be taking 1000 more photos at the end of the month, so I decided to edit some photos I took the last weekend in July when I was down on Cape Cod. This was a short trip to the cottage, so not tons of photos, but a couple of pretty good ones. Or at least I like them ;)
Not a great photo, but I thought it was cool to see a bunch of seal off of Chapin Beach (in the full photo there are about a dozen others stretched out in a line). Continue reading →
