February 2017 Wallpaper

I was pawing through my February archives and ran across a series of abstracts of the Assabet River that I shot in 2012.  I don’t normally do abstracts as part of the wallpaper series, but strangely enough I did one last February.  Although shot two years apart the mystery and lightness of these images obviously keeps getting my attention.  I hope they look good on your screens – it really comes to life when it is displayed on a big surface.

Looking forward to Spring…

Happy New Year! January 2015 Wallpaper

January 2015 Wallpaper

Just in case anyone was under the impression that I had a New Year’s Resolution to get these images out on time in 2015…

Last week we had a burst of cold weather that reminded me of a similar frigid January morning in 2009.  The rising sun stirring the river into steam wherever the rays touch the surface creating a magical few minutes that reinforces the old photographer’s adage: bad weather makes for great photographs.
