Directory of Photographs
I have divided my photographs into sections so that the viewer will not be overwhelmed by the many pictures. There are well over one thousand pictures. Pick the category that is of the most interest to you and start there.
Some of these pictures were taken and placed on this site because of artistic qualities. It is a way to express my creativity, but most of the pictures were placed on this site because I want to share some beauty that I have beheld. The pictures of the geese show the beauty of primitive and unconditional love. It transcends artistic qualities and despite the poor quality of the pictures, I have included them and consider them among my best. Updated 06/29/2010
Old pictures Updated 02/15/2010 These are pictures taken with my old camera over a period of the last ten years. Where possible, I will re-photograph them with my new camera and post them elsewhere in this site.

Pictures of stormUpdated 02/15/2010
The storm of February 16, 2010 was the first storm since getting my new camera. I took over a hundred pictures of snow scenes. For a picture to be of real value, it must show something that the viewer has never seen. Or it can show something that the viewer has seen, but with a different point of view. Or the pictures can tell a story. Everybody has seen snow, and most people are sick of it. There are only so many points of view to show snow and they have all been done. So, I have selected seven pictures that show a sunrise over a frozen pond and a flowing brook.
Sunrise after snowUpdated 02/17/2010
The morning of February 17, I took about 60 pictures. I was so sick of snow that I put most of them in the recycle bin. Instead of permanently deleting them, I put them into a folder marked trash. Today, June 18, the temperature is over 80 and suddenly, these pictures do not look so bad. WARNING: Do not look at these pictures on a cold day! If I were making a calendar, I would put pictures like this in July and August. In January and February, I would put pictures of beaches!

After leaving the old railroad grade and the beaver apartment, sometimes I go into town. The road has an interesting optical illusion.

I am submitting a series of photographs of the brook near my home. I thought about different ways to present the hundreds of photographs that show this beautiful brook. I intend to exhibit about a mile of brook during the four seasons of the year. In each section, I will show just a few pictures from each season, so that the reader can see the changes with seasons. In some cases, the pictures did not come out as well as I had hoped. If they are part of the story, I will include them. If I can get a better picture at a future date, then I will replace the inferior quality picture. Otherwise, I will leave it.

This is where I will put pictures of wildlife seen in the nearby woods.
NOTE: I am not afraid of anything in the woods, except maybe the sickness rabies, but I have learned that some people have phobias about various creatures. I am giving warning to those people of what they will find. Updated 08/22/2010

Trees are beautiful. They change color through the year. Most of the time they are green, but sometimes yellow, sometimes red, and sometimes even purple. I have a page dedicated to trees.

Pictures of Native American artifacts
I have found an interest series of cairns and rock piles. They are probably the remnants of a prehistoric settlement.
Rock Piles Updated 04/10/2010
After preparing this page, I did some research. I found an excellent article by Mary Gage at Stone Structures of Northeastern U.S. - Prehistoric - Cairns. After reading this, I understood the significance of the artifacts that I had seen all of my life. I spent all day April 3 looking at objects that I had seen all of my life and understanding them as never before. I have made an initial collection which I hope to improve in the future.
