Guest Post at Brian Matiash Photography

If you’re reading this – you need to do both of us a favor.  For yourself, you need to go enjoy the guest post I did over at the blog of fellow photographer Brian Matiash.  For me, please go visit Brian and thank him for giving me such an awesome opportunity to open a new series for him that features fellow photographers in an open forum setting….I had my choice of topics to write about, and it became immediately clear that I had to incorporate Portsmouth as a theme.  This great city is primarily responsible for getting me involved and passionate about photography all over again since buying my first digital camera last year.  I hope you enjoy the post…and more importantly – go check out Brian’s work (it is stunning).  Brian always captures the fascinating textures in everyday scenes that we all take for granted…I’m hoping to host Brian on a photowalk in the very near future – stay tuned and I’ll keep you posted!!

Trap Falls | Willard Brook State Forest

It was a beautiful weekend, and while home in Massachusetts for the day on Sunday my Dad and I decided to go see how Trap Falls was looking.  This waterfall in Ashby, MA near Willard Brook State Forest is usually comprised of three streams of water coming down the rocks.  We timed this visit perfectly, as there was still snow in the area and the recent rains made sure that the falls were much stronger than usual.  I had a great time shooting my first waterfall… looking forward to future adventures.  Video to follow later today.
