You have to walk this trail!!! This is one of the most exciting hikes I have taken. There are so many little surprises to this walk and it is a very easy walk. Okay, there are moments when you get a little winded but for the most part, it is really easy. When you reach the top, you will find breath taking views of New Haven.  I got a little nervous when my eldest son got close to the edge for a picture because it is a 300 foot fall. It will get your heart pumping. This all started with an article my wife sent me “if there are only 5 hikes you ever do in  Connecticut, do these”  Another article shows a trail map which is very helpful. Click here for more info. We went in March which was very nice, but I think once the foliage starts changing in November, I will have to pay it another visit.

 

Today’s snow fall made our yard into a winter wonderland. Of course I have to feed the chickens first. And I love the way the snow sits on my dad’s apple trees, it never gets old.

Living in Westport my whole life I can really appreciate what a great community we have. What better way to celebrate the New Year by having a fireworks display downtown? I purchased my DJI Drone in April and had logged in enough hours, took an online course  for a license and just registered it. The quality is spectacular. I use the drone for real estate, architects, landscape designers and every business that could use an aerial shoot. The learning curve is not big, but I think it takes a lot of confidence to master cool pans and seamless movements.

I visited the  Netherlands with my son and my camera and here are just a few shots. I have a bunch of good tourist snaps riding bikes together, but I thought this is a nice representation of a fun getaway. It has been 10 years since my father passed away and I wanted to show Case, my son, his ancestry and the tree we planted for my father when he passed away.

A client called me and asked if I could take photographs of horses for her. She said her boyfriend was not interested in buying something online and wanted a local photographer to get the shot. I love these challenges!! I had such a fun time shooting the horses. I first went to a farm close to The Patterson Club in Fairfield and the owner came out and yelled at me. I wasn’t in the pen, I was just shooting from the fence. Then she told me I can shoot but I could not use the pictures. After brainstorming with my wife, she told me of an obvious friend who had horses, goats, chickens and even a big pig. It was a very cold day and I lost feeling in my fingers for 4 hours, but I was happy with the results.
