Hawks, hawks, hawks!

15 01 2010

I’m fascinated by hawks. I truly do not know why… but I find them very beautiful and majestic. On my travels I usually pass a location where two hawks can be found roosting, probably looking for their next meal. When I travel between the Capital District and Long Island I usually see a hawk or two along the thruway or side roads.

The other day, however, was truly unusual! I saw the usual pair of hawks although they were hiding in a different set of trees than usual. I then passed another hawk, this time in flight! And further along I passed two more hawks perched above the landscape!

Five hawks seen in the local area in a single day – a new record for me!

Fall Colors

1 11 2009

I took a walk around the Vischer Ferry preserve this weekend and captured some of the fall foliage.

Some of these are now available as prints or fine art note cards on my website.





Cape Cod Vacation

9 08 2009

We just enjoyed a brief get-away to Cape Cod. Beautiful!

It seems like wherever we go, someone is always fascinated by my camera!

Actually, for people pictures we usually let you clean up first!

Have a safe and happy summer!

My Friend, The Red Tailed Hawk

13 06 2009

I’m always on the lookout for these guys but I seem to never have my camera with me when I spot them!

Happily this one asked me to do a portrait session! This is one of the nicer ones. I had to keep it short because the bird had to fly off to another appointment!





Local author’s photo shoot

4 06 2009

I had the pleasure of working today with local author Jill Peck Vona! She’s working on a new book and needed a portrait for the book’s jacket.

We took a variety of environmental portraits both in her beautiful home and outdoors in her wonderful garden.
