Christmas Day 2013

After some cold weather dropping to the single digits in the preceding weeks (well, cold for Boise) Christmas Day warmed to right around the freezing (or melting) point.  Cyndi and I went out for a walk in Barber Park and enjoyed the day.

Maine Coast in Rain and Fog

The day I picked to visit the Atlantic Ocean was a rainy, foggy, wet and cold day.  This made the rocks slippery, the colors vibrant, and the experience brief.

Taunton River Sunset Memories

Across the road from where my parents live, down the hill and through the Gordon Cemetery, is the Taunton River.  It is a tidal estuary.  It is beautiful to visit anytime, but sunset is particularly enjoyable.  On this visit I tried not only to capture realistic images, but also to use this water as paint for my digital canvas.

I admit to some frustration as I look at the incredible wealth of fantastic images existing in today's digital world.  It seems there is nothing new under the sun, nothing that has not been photographed, and everything has been photographed very well.  To create something new is a challenging endeavor, and I'm redoubling my effort.
