|Cover & October : Giant Guilford Sugar Maple|
|Catsbane Falls, West Chesterfield, NH|
My deadline for the draft design and all the finished pictures is this Friday, or, by the time this article comes out, last Friday. Given the time demands, this week's article must be dedicated to the calendar. I want to share some of my selected images and a few examples of the anxious decisions that are part of each year's calendar creation.
|September : Peecham Sunrise|
|May : Creamery Covered Bridge, Brattleboro, Vt|
With more than ten years of calendars behind me, it is also important to check my archives to make sure that I am not reusing images from previous editions.
|July : Barn Light, Jaffrey, NH|
|November : Forest Deep, Chesterfield, NH|
|Red Tail Hawk|
|March : Peaking Pair, Keene, NH|
I always dedicate the inside back page of my calendars to a thumbnail of the next year's calendar and a list of that year's holidays. The page is also the one place for a portrait oriented image. This year I hope I will be excused for using that spot to remember my wonderful photography companion Nellie. Over the last 13 years Nellie sat patiently at my side as I captured many of my best images, including most in this year's calendar. I know I will be sensing her presence for years to come as I explore the trails and roads of New England.
I have to get back to work. Only a few more days to go.
Again I hope to see you at the Ewing Arts Awards on the 23rd at Keene State College's Redfen Arts Center. It should be a fun time.
