New Country – An uncut photographer talk

In this short, uncut video I discuss one of my all time favorite images. New Country is a scene of tranquility inspiring the viewer to feel the limitlessness of the country and understand the vast unseen landscapes.

The black and white image was taken in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah the morning after a storm came through.

Sunset, Wellfleet Harbor
Sunset, Wellfleet Harbor. A little bit of an unusual image for me, but I like how the bright light creates an abstract scene. The individual tips of the grass sparkling in the sun also make it a favorite from this trip.

Framed Canvas Print of Great Island, Wellfleet

Photographic print on canvas, framed

A newly hung print of Great Island in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. It’s a canvas print with a floating white wooden frame that measures 46×28″.

I’ve started using the simple white floating frame on my larger canvas print and thing it sets it off nicely at this size compared to my largest canvas wall prints.

Seascape, Truro

One of my favorite recent Cape Cod photographs, this image from high on the bluffs in Truro has an exciting combination of composition and color.

Ever-changing Clouds in The White Mountains

An image that makes you say wow. That’s what this is for me. The clouds moving across the peaks, the freshly fallen snow on the treetops, and the light filtered by the breaking up of the low cloud cover combine into a photograph with interest.

Cape Cod Wanderings with Endless Light

One reason the landscape of Cape Cod has drawn so many artists over the years is that the unique light comes in endless variations, creating so many opportunities and feelings. Here are a few images from my trip last month that show these variations.

Maritime Illusion

Apparent in these images is the enduring allure of the sea. The potential for encountering an unusual experience like these seascapes drives the attraction. It is fueled by the mystery of what lies beyond.

Sea smoke and snowfall limit view of any reference point and remove our sense of place. The unseen vast distances of ocean generating the waves become the subject of wonder.

I made this photograph of the ocean during Hurricane Sandy last fall. I really like how the  image feels as though it is from a long time ago. It has a real timeless quality.
