Photograph: Wagon Hill Farm

Wagon Hill Marsh

Took these images while on an early morning walk at Wagon Hill Farm, a conservation area in Durham, New Hampshire. There was dense fog that was just starting to clear as I arrived.

The property also has some community gardens with a combination of vegetables and flowers growing in rectangular wooden boxes. These ornamental Cleome flowers are also called Spider Flowers.

1969 Chris-Craft

This digitally-enhanced photograph of a 1969 Chris-Craft Sportsman antique power boat was taken during the New Hampshire Boat Museum annual vintage wooden boat show, held on the docks in Alton Bay, New Hampshire, a small village at the southern end of Lake Winnipesaukee. This gleaming 22′ boat is amply powered by a 283 Chevy V-8 inboard engine. This particular image will be on display in my On the Water exhibition at the New Hampshire Art Association gallery in Portsmouth, NH during August.

Photograph – Great Bay Boardwalk

Great Bay Boardwalk

This photograph, enhanced with artistic filters, was taken at Great Bay Discovery Center in Greenland, New Hampshire. This is part of the Great Bay National Estuarine Research Preserve where staff promote stewardship, monitoring, and education about the bay. Concerns about water quality, marine habitat health, and access to the bay are foremost for this organization. The Discovery Center facility includes a small collection of well-done exhibits highlighting these themes. The boardwalk in the photograph is part of an easy nature path at the center and brings visitors up-close to the tall marsh grasses and other foliage along the tidal zone of the bay. Birds, including osprey, are often seen here. A print of this photograph, mounted in nice walnut wood frame, is on display at the Seacoast Artist Association gallery in Exeter, New Hampshire, for our Marshes, Dunes, and Tidepools theme show during July 2017.
