Good Day in the Mountains

Beautiful winter day in the mountains yesterday: sun and cold, new snow. That’s Camel’s Hump with Mt. Mansfield sticking up behind it in the top photo, as seen from Sugarbush North. Others are both from Sugarbush North. Because of the angle, Camel’s Hump and Mansfield aren’t showing their usual distinctive profiles.

Greetings from the Season

Holiday greetings from the frozen north. For the first time in a few years we’ll have an authentic northern New England white Christmas.  It did rain on top of the whiteness most of today but we have nearly two feet of snow, so it’s still here. It’s going to get cold and snow some more, and that means an old-fashioned Vermont Christmas. Happy Holidays! All the photos were taken within a mile of home. Unless I’m guessing wrong, that’s a rescued greyhound out for a stroll in the top one.

Ski Race Photos at Craftsbury Outdoor Center

If you happen to get to the Craftsbury, VT, Outdoor Center any time this winter, take a look at the photos in the touring center (open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day, all winter). I have an exhibit of 22 16-x-24-inch color prints from some of the racing coverage I did in 2016 and 2017. The photos range from local racers in New England Nordic Ski Association races at Craftsbury to skiers at the world championships last February and March in Lahti, Finland. I tried to capture the action, color and beauty of gliding on snow as well as the emotional and personal side of the sport. Above, the Canadian Women’s relay team after a strong finish in Lahti. Below, US Paralympic sit-skier Andy Soule prepares for a race; Norway’s Marit Bjorgen celebrates after her team won the women’s world championship relay; and Chris Young of Jay, VT, helps his son, Jack, with pole straps before a NENSA race at Craftsbury.

Back on the Airline

Back on northeastern Maine’s Route 9 from Bangor to Calais again last fall for something like the fourth time in 2017. Every time I go, there’s more to see.

Susquehanna River, central Pennsylvania, early October: Fall takes its time arriving, the leaves take their time turning and the river keeps flowing.

Building Hudson Yards

On the job at Hudson Yards, the mammoth West Side development in New York City. You can walk right up to the construction site on the Highline, a few blocks east of the Hudson River. As the developer’s web site says: “Hudson Yards is the largest private real estate development in the history of the United States and the largest development in New York City since Rockefeller Center. The site will include more than 18 million square feet of commercial and residential space, state-of-the-art office towers, more than 100 shops including New York’s first Neiman Marcus …”  etc. There goes the neighborhood.

A joyous Danish/Jewish/Vermont wedding held last summer in a hayfield in Marshfield. What’s with the cutting of the socks in the bottom picture? Ask a Dane!

Hockey in the Field

Never been to a field hockey game until last week, when I watched the University of New Hampshire versus the University of Vermont in Burlington. Intense game. Hard played. Soccer with sticks and a small ball. UVM won 1-0 in double overtime (shot above after the winning goal). Nikon D600, 70-300 zoom.
