One photo a day challenge: Day 170. It has been a very enjoyable vacation. Sad to see it come to an end. Relaxing, reading, campfires, and our dog. Oh and the sunsets. The sunsets were beautiful. Thankfully our vacation closed out with this spectacular view.
One photo a day challenge: Day 169. Today was a mostly rainy day. We stayed hunkered down at our campsite. When the rain finally relented it was time for a fire. I positioned myself so the woods would be in the background of the photo. I took a few photos to get the composition I wanted. Then I sat and waited for the fire to spit out some sparks. This is the… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 168. Today we spent the day chasing waterfalls. We sought out waterfalls that were close the the road and had easy access. Our dog isn’t as mobile as she used to be. Brynn still loves to get out and explore. So we found ways to get her out doing what she loves. I bought a book detailing how to find a large number of waterfalls in… Read More
One benefit of relaxing and staying in one place on this trip is having multiple opportunities to photograph the same location. Sometimes the same location can look very different at different times of day. Even at the same time of day on different days the location can have a different look depending on different environmental factors. Today I photographed the lake at Higley Flow State Park during sunset for the third time… Read More
The other night might have been the worst thunderstorm we’ve endured while out camping, but today was the rainiest day. It rained on and off all morning. There wasn’t much relief in the afternoon either. Intermittent rains continued. Multiple times I started fires only to be thwarted by the return of the rain. We stayed at camp all day. Trying to make the best of it. Huddled up under our canopy to… Read More
Overnight into this morning we experienced a crazy thunderstorm. Wind, rain, thunder, and lightning. Probably the worst storm we’ve experienced while camping. We stayed dry in the tent. But when we emerged everything in our campsite was soggy. Despite putting everything we left out under our canopy. So we spent the day away from our campsite. We went out exploring the Adirondack region. One place we stopped was Buttermilk Falls in Long… Read More
Today we spent the afternoon down at the lake at Higley Flow State Park. The lake here is apparently connected to a large system of waterways. This large system of waterways appears to have its own tidal system. The water levels were different this afternoon than they were this morning. This exposed rocks, and tree limbs, and sand that previously was under water. It is nice to have scenery that will vary… Read More
We arrived at our campsite out in the Adirondacks. We set up and set out to relax. We don’t really do the sit back and relax thing very well for long periods of time. We stayed at our campsite the entire day except when I walked down to take this photo.
One photo a day challenge: Day 161. I set out to try something a little different today. Using artificial light in my photography has opened up some new avenues. The lights I have have worked out in photographing close up and medium distance photos. Tonight I tried to use the artificial lighting on a more wide angle scenic photograph. The lights worked to illuminate the foreground. Lighting up the tree trunk and… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 160. Spent a little time photographing the trees here in New York. This tree was growing just outside the edge of the forest. In one shot I could compose an image that included the tree trunk, the edge of the forest, and the bright opening of a clearing in the background. I like how the tree trunk is half in shadow on one side. The dark… Read More
