"Hummingbirds" 


This short video recently received the Highly Honored video award from Nature's Best in the international Nature's Best Backyard photography competition.


Late in the Covid Spring of 2020, we discovered a hummingbird’s nest in an apple tree beside our house. A short time later, we noticed a mother hummingbird periodically sitting on this nest. I built a simple photo blind -- a piece of camouflage fabric suspended on a broomstick between a nearby cherry tree and our house. Watching the nest, a pair of small beaks appeared and the mother began to feed. Over time the baby hummingbirds grew with care, attention and feeding by the mother. Twenty days after the beaks first appeared, the first fledgling left the nest, and two days later, the second left.




Heartbeat Lifesharing


My daughter Ashley served as an Americore volunteer at Heartbeet Lifesharing for two years. She grew to love this community, and in 2015 we worked together to teach photography to the “friends”, and to capture a day in the life of this community.  Heartbeet is a Camphill community in northern Vermont that includes adults with developmental disabilities, interweaving the social and agricultural realms for  healing and renewal. Community members live and work together, in extended family households, forming a mutually supportive environment that enables each individual to discover and develop his or her unique abilities and potential.  Adults with disabilities in this community are known as “friends".

Last Ice


Late afternoon on July 24th 2015, we kayak across Aialik Bay, and when the tide was right, we paddle up a small channel and into a series of large lagoons. Entering the highest lagoon at the terminus of the Pedersen Glacier in early evening, we come into what I experience as a different world. Stowing my paddle and retrieving my camera from it’s dry bag, I say to my daughter Ashley in the rear seat, "this is awesome, just paddle…"


Impact of Changing Climate at Aialik Bay, Alaska


Aialik Bay is a exemplary location to see the impacts of warming climate in Arctic regions.  Kayaking this bay and connecting the visual experience with research on changing climate creates a compelling broader perspective.
