Exploring a local wildlife sanctuary can be very rewarding and beneficial for our photography. Usually one can find birds and other wildlife that are willing photographic objects, beautiful flowers, or insects of all sorts. My last local photo tour brought me back to the Mass Audubon Broad Meadow Brook Conservation Center and Wildlife Sanctuary in Worcester, MA. The sanctuary is located near Worcester, MA and is a short 55 minutes drive west of Boston. It has lots of trails to explore, a beaver pond, and a butterfly garden at the main building and entrance. I stayed put at the garden and had to pick a lens for my ... Learn More.

Acadia National Park is located in the U.S. state of Maine. It is a 5 hour drive from Boston or 3 hours from Portland, Maine.

Around Herring River - Cape Cod
On our way back in the evening from a bicycling tour around Martha's Vineyard and hoping to bump into the Obamas, I noticed the red boat in the Herring River at an overpass near Harwich, MA. I immediately decided to come back here the next morning knowing that nobody would move the boat if I just get there early enough to work the object. Next morning I fell out of bed trying not to wake everybody else up, jumped in the car and did the 35 minute drive over to the location on route 28. Not that I was going too fast that morning but luckily a fellow driver warned me with his headlights to slow down a little because of a police car checking the speed limit further down the road. All I needed now was to get pulled over in the wee hours and get a ticket. Finally arriving at the location I was relieved that the boat was still there. The sun was already up, partly painting the boat in the glory morning hour light. I often get carried away by certain scenes and start shooting following my instincts instead of analyzing the scene. First I captured the boat directly from the parking lot but then made my way towards the overpass where I kept shooting. I then crossed the bridge and moved closer to the boat incorporating the grass in the front into the composition. At that point I also decided to change my lens range to 300mm lens zooming in more and achieving a narrower, more intimate view of the dinghy. It was a very quiet and windless morning which made it a good day to capture water reflections. Once I got the image I wanted I made my way back towards the overpass. Here I stopped one more time to arrange and capture this additional frame. I now anxiously watch the weather forecast because I will be back for sure on an early foggy morning ... can you imagine the possibilities!

I always love when I find a Floral Photography object that I can easily isolate against an attractive background. Some of my last pictures of this kind I found in the beautiful and inspiring Boston Public Garden. I always had this location on my bucket list but never timed it properly. This time I got it right and tulips in all colors were in full bloom. Overnight rain showers drenched the tulips in raindrops and >>> LEARN MORE

I often visit Memorial Drive to photograph the Boston Skyline as it provides ample views of the city and its landmarks. It is amazing me when city lights and twilight merge as one and an unforgettable magic unfolds - it never gets old! On my last photo trip I went to a photo location that provides one of the best Boston skyline views with the Prudential Center, John Hancock Tower and the famous Citgo sign in Fenway.
The night was beautiful clear night and the light after sunset was incredible gorgeous. Equipped with a GigaPan technology, Canon D7 and a 70-200mm set at 100mm I captured 35 photographs to be stitched in a Boston skyline panorama gigapixel image when I >>> LEARN MORE
