Wide angle lenses are generally used for landscape photography. The wide angle lens that I use is a lens by Tamron. If you look in my camera bag you will see a Tamron 18-200 mm zoom lens. The Tamron 18-200mm The fact that the lens can zoom from 18 mm all the way to 200 mm creates a wide range of options for using this particular lens. But for me personally in… Read More

As a photographer I use three types of cameras. I use DSLR camera bodies. Mirrorless cameras are also a tool a frequently use. And for specialty projects I use GoPro Cameras. I use Nikon Cameras I am not a fan of the camera wars arguing over what camera manufacturing brand is the best. I also think we are way past the days of looking at how many megapixels a camera has. Most… Read More

After thoroughly enjoying a beautiful hike at Ricketts Glen (Link Back To Last Post) we opted to follow that up with a day of recovery. What better way to do that then to spend another relaxing day with our dogs down at the lake-shore. We enjoyed our previous trip during vacation that we decided to take another crack at it and see if we could do it even better this time around…. Read More

After a day of relaxation we set out for a hike. After spending a lot of our vacation relaxing we really wanted to do something active. I wanted to go hike somewhere. I wanted to find the perfect hike that captured all the beauty of our area in one trail. There are a lot of wonderful trails to hike in our region. I have favorite places to spend time communing with nature…. Read More

After a couple day’s worth of long drives we decided to try and stay closer to home. But, I still wanted to see some new sights. I thought I knew just how to make that happen.  First up was Stony Brook State Park. I had been there once before, but the trail leading to the waterfall was closed at that time. I wanted to go back and get a good view of… Read More

I talk a lot about wanting to and trying to relax on this vacation, but maybe that is just self-delusion. I did have some goals I wanted to accomplish on this vacation. Visiting New State Parks I wanted to visit state parks that I had not visited before. Since it was supposed to be hot all week I thought maybe it would help to go north. We live on the southern border… Read More

On day 3 of our vacation we went to a location I am familiar with and enjoy but lately never seem to find my way there as much as I would like. We spent the day relaxing near the shores of Tioga Hammond Lakes. This time it was a day for just my wife and I to relax and enjoy. No dogs this time.

The other day I was out creating some photography. My goal for the day was flower and macro photography with some scenic shots mixed in. I used four different cameras over the course of the day. One of which came in handy in a way I was not expecting. When I set out to take photographs and I have a goal in mind, I take the gear I need to create those… Read More

Female Mallard Photograph

Most of the photography gear that I have and use the most are tools that I have had for a long time. I have chosen these particular tools for a reason. I really like the photographs I am able to create with these tools. It doesn’t mean that there are never times I wish I had other tools available to me. For my wildlife photography I mostly use a 300mm lens with… Read More

Baltimore Oriole perched on oak tree in Upstate, New York

One of my favorite song birds has always been the Baltimore Oriole. I don’t know if I like them because I grew up watching and playing baseball and the Baltimore Orioles were a team and one of the most popular players in baseball, Cal Ripken Jr., played on that team but that is certainly possible. Baltimore Orioles are probably one of the more well known species of birds again probably owing to… Read More
