On June 6, 1981, Vermont’s Green Mountains were enveloped in steady, warm rain.  I woke to it pattering against the window of my bedroom, the swirly glass in the hundred-year-old pane blurred further by streaks of water washing down old cobwebs and the tiny bits of last fall's iridescent fly wings that they contained. I glanced out at the distorted world – a view cleaved by leaden sky and indistinct, early-season green, then came down the stairs of the farmhouse where I grew up two at a time. I was a week away from my tenth birthday, and a day...

It’s fun for me to read through it now, nearly 40 years after my first entries, reliving those days I spent pursuing brook trout with my father. The choppy, pencil-printed words detailing the things I found in the woods – rusted maple sap buckets peppered with birdshot scars, skunk cabbage plants bursting through...

The end-all-be-all in astrophotography is Britain's Insight Investment Astronomy Photographer of the Year photo contest, sponsored by the Greenwich Royal Observatory Museum. This is the World Series of night sky photos, the largest of its kind, and this year my picture, Holding Due North, has been shortlisted in the contest. It has "already beaten out thousands of other entries," and secured a place beside some of the absolute best astro photos in the world.  I remember when I began taking star trail pictures - invariably leaving my camera to its remote with incorrect settings that resulted in mornings of viewing...
