When Nature Provides Your Vision

Posted on by Kathie Fife

This summer I’ve had an amazing opportunity to explore some of the NH Audubon sanctuaries. This image is from an early morning paddle around Willard Pond. My original vision for the day’s photo shoot was to create a soft image of the loon in a recognizable setting, with the rocks and mountain in the background. […]

Wildlife Tracking: Saying Goodbye to the Snowshoe Hare

Posted on by Kathie Fife

It has been the best winter for tracking. And I think I may be all alone in this sentiment, but honestly, I am going to miss winter. Snowshoe Hare tracks in snow – the last documentation Yes, it was very cold and icy, but we also had great snowfalls, mostly light and fluffy. Shortly after the […]

Wildlife Tracking: The Buck Stops Here

Posted on by Kathie Fife

By this time of the year, early January, the white tailed deer are gathering in deer yards to conserve much needed energy to survive through the cold snowy winter.  On one of my wildlife tracking hikes recently I walked by a deer yard (a place where deer congregate to rest and feed under the protective […]

Photographing Historic Villages on Cloudy Days

I had to look this one up.  I’ve seen it before, but not nearly […]

Why I always have a camera with me

Posted on by Kathie Fife

I always have a camera with me.  In a previous post “Is the iPhone as good as a Pro Level DSLR” I talked about this difference between capturing the moment with professional gear versus an iPhone. In this case, I was glad I had my phone with me. I had just stepped out of my […]

In today’s (June 13, 2013) Sunday paper, The Nashua Telegraph photo editor and writer, Don Himsel created a great story about my work photographing the rare and endangered flora and fauna of NH.  More specifically, the story focused on the state butterfly, the karner blue. I’m so happy with this story because Don Himsel created the […]
