Taken this morning (10/18/19) on Big Slide Mountain by @john_laf3. Winter is here folks. Plan accordingly when hitting the trails especially on higher elevation hikes. If you don’t want to deal with snow stay on smaller hikes such as many of the lower elevation LP9 and similar sized peaks.

In fall, golden hour turns to a mixture of golden yellows, fiery reds, and vibrant oranges as the sun crests over the distant mountains...

The seasons seem to be at conflict. This past weekend was a beautiful one up in the Adirondacks. Sunny skies, crisp air and the first real dose of snow on the highest of the peaks. The trip this time was not for image making, but rather a much needed dose of family time. We did, however, need to make a quick pit stop to photograph the falls along upper Cascade Lake. What can I say, I am a sucker for Autumn colors, waterfalls and snow capped peaks all in the same shot.⁣
⁣
Get out and explore, its a beautiful time of year. But when you head out do try to leave the place better than when you found it.⁣
⁣⁣
Midday shots are tough on the eyes, but the low angle light seemed make it a bit more doable. Thanks, @nikonusa! ⁣
⁣
Cheers.⁣ ⁣

If you had any idea how powerful your thoughts were, you'd never think a negative thought again.
.

What we focus on expands.
Where our attention goes, energy flows.

These may be cliché, but they are for a reason.
.

If you think you are freaking awesome and energetic and magnetic and amazing then guess what?  You're right.
.

If you think you suck and you aren't enough and you aren't ever going to amount to anything and that people are awful then... Well, you're right about that.
.

Our thoughts become things.
Our beliefs SHAPE our reality. 
If you don't like your reality, you must begin with your thoughts.
.

You literally cannot change anything until you change your mind first.

Truly honored today to announce that I have been published on the Slow Photography Movement's blog. In "Land Is a Community to Which We Belong" I go through a bit of my journey and my thoughts on why I do what I do to support the conservation of the lands I photograph. It was such a great experience working with @ernesto_ruiz_photography and I am humbled to share the stage with some of my favorite nature photographers. If you get a chance please drop by https://www.slowphotographymovement.com/ (link in my bio) and share their message, its a refreshing and meaningful take on the purpose and import of nature photography.⁣
⁣
Thank you again for all your support, its been a busy month getting ready for a number of new projects and finalizing the holiday season.⁣
⁣
Best to you.⁣

So I made the decision to cutoff my Saranac 6 Ultra attempt halfway for my safety. We did well all day just didn't quite get to Ampersand in enough time to get up and mostly down in the daylight. I had plenty of leg left but I didn't think my joints could take another steep, rocky and muddy down climb in the dark without risking injury. I am BEYOND proud of our accomplishments today still getting 3 peaks #scarfacemountain #mckenziemountain #haystackmountain, hit 15.5 miles and a little over 4000 feet of gain AND I completed my first night hike... all on only a few hours sleep for both of us. I left it all out there and firmly believe I could have done all 30 miles with just a little more daylight! We had great pace all day, my nutrition was on point (achem, Brittany) and we had a solid mental game dialed in. We suffered some gnarly trail conditions today with greasy mud and even some icy rock climbs. But we were smiles all day!!! Thanks again @brittbritt499 for girl talk, keeping me safe and keeping us moving!! #gohard #knowyourlimits #untilthenexttime #hikeadk #doepicshit #girlgang #comfortablewithbeinguncomfortable

Icing On The Cake

Peak autumn foliage spreads out below the snow-capped summit of Algonquin Peak, as morning fog drifts off the surface of a lake on a cold October morning a half hour before sunrise. Adirondack High Peaks, New York.

Two weeks already. ⁣⁣

With the schedule I maintain as a father of two teenagers, husband, and full-time teacher, nature photography frequently has to wait. I’m fine with that because the times I do manage to get out help to provide balance in my life. ⁣
⁣
When I have a choice of day with one being cruddy weather and the other being sunny skies, I opt for crud. Lots of reasons, actually, but first among them is the potential great color. Other benefits include less bugs, less people, more interesting skies, less contrast, less blown out highlights, a potentially long photo shoot, and the technical challenge of staying warm and dry.⁣
⁣
These Autumn covered hills are a good example of what you can run into. That day was intermittent downpours with light but steady rain in between. The Sun always comes out on the way home, which it politely did. But only after I was thoroughly soaked. This was shot at around 200 mm at f9 for about 1/16s.  On magnification the crispness falls of dramatically because it was shot through several hundred yards of rainfall. I did the best I could in the conditions so it is what it is. Its hard to ask the camera to see more than what your eyes can see. Or to break the laws of physics, light scatters when moving through rain. Little fine detail was visible, but the shapes and textures and gradations of light and color came through. I am good with that, after all its what attracted me to the scene to begin with.⁣
⁣
Get out an explore even when the weather is working against you. By all means be safe, but embrace the crud and you may be better for it!⁣

When you try and not let Couchsachraga get the best of you hahaha gotta fake it till you make it. I’m not gonna lie, I loved the infamous Couchsachraga bog...but one wrong step and you’re knee deep in mud haha we made it through though. @brian_hikes_all_day thank you so much for reaching out and doing this hike with me. I had been dreading doing the Santanoni Range and when you reached out and asked to join me on that, man...it’s been such an amazing journey with all the people I’ve met. I can’t wait to share more with everyone! #love #hiking #nature #outdoors #adirondacks #mountains #adirondackmountains #explore #exploreny #hikemore #adkny #exploreadk #adventure #visitadk #choosemountains #hikeadk #hikemountains #hikingadventures #landscapephotography #peoplewhohike #goeast #optoutside #exploretocreate #folkscenery #folkcreative #wildernesstones #iloveny #takeahike #wildernessculture

“A year ago everything was different...And now that I look back, I realize that a year can do a lot to a person...”

This year has been one of a lot of lessons, blessings and new beginnings. Keeping with that theme I am starting another new chapter 📖 I resigned this week from the job I have been with for over 1️⃣0️⃣ years to start a new career path. Change is TERRIFYING but also necessary. ❤️ I hope no matter where you are in your year that you have the courage to start over for yourself.

"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers."
.

Here are some pictures that I never got around posting from this past weekend!!! @shp_strength_v.2 and I hiked Whiteface, our highest mountain yet (4,867') and Ester, which had the worst view yet (4,240'). The fall foliage in the high peak region was at peak, and the photos I took are phenomenal. 🥰
.
.
Sean and I accidentally summited Marble Mountain (not a 46er) as the sun was coming over the mountains. We hit 2 46ers after that, and it took us 7 hours including stopping at each summit. 👌🏼💪🏼

I remember what these mountain tops were like. I remember the views being clouded over by smog. I remember seeing swaths of trees dying. I remember catching nothing in those lakes.  The elevated mercury in our fish and wildlife continue to speak the truth. ⁣
⁣
We should not, can not slide backwards on all the success we have seen in the recovery of the Adirondacks from acid deposition. The recent increase in acidic rain at Whiteface should disturb us. Increased sulfur oxide emissions from coal combustion outside New York state are as much of a threat today as they were in the ladder part of the twentieth century. We know exactly how to make coal burn cleaner, its now just a matter of returning our coal-fired power plants back to the emission levels they had been attaining in recent years. Few among us would like to return to the days when this ecosystem was most impacted.⁣
⁣
This is not a fate we need to accept as a natural extension of progress. But unless we speak up these places we have come to love may start to wither once again.⁣
⁣
If the recent decline in air quality and its potential impact upon the Adirondacks are of concern to you, please consider signing the Adirondack Council’s petition at https://www.adirondackcouncil.org/page/acid-rain-petition-242.html (link in my bio.). If you would like to learn more about this problem first, please take a look at http://nadp.slh.wisc.edu/educ/acidrain.aspx.⁣

Vibrant autumn colors spread out below the snow-capped summit of Algonquin Peak, as morning fog drifts off the surface of a lake on a cold October morning at sunrise. Adirondack High Peaks, New York.

It’s been a wonderful year so far. This decade I have finally felt like I have achieved some sort of control in my life. I am ready for my next chapter and relieved to have found true love in both myself and another person. Everywhere I look I am surrounded by this beauty. Constant change is the only thing that is for certain in my life and I am blessed to feel ready to continue on this journey everyday and to do what I love every breathing moment. I love you @gibbousqueen. Peace.

You can’t see my face in the last pic, but if you could, you’d see the frown @abowm061 and I sported for half this hike, which legit felt like a 180 degree climb for miles. Luckily (and unsurprisingly), the suffering was worth it for the gorgeous skyline views at the top of Whiteface. Esther was a little less satisfying offering a plaque and zero lookout, but at least we’ll never have to hike this trail again to cross Esther off our list (how strategic of us!). At the end of the day, we’re two summits closer to being #adk46ers 💁🏻‍♀️ @adkusa #hikeadk #adirondacks #optoutside #whiteface #esther #fallhiking

We had a wonderful time visiting with @kelhiker this weekend. Hiking, leaf peeping, corn maze, pumpkin ice cream, and sock knitting. It was magical.
