First snow fall

Today we had our first snow fall of this winter. It was also the first time I've had my camera out of my bag for a while. These are pyracantha berries; the pyracantha seems to grow "wild" around our property:) Photo edited with On1 Photo Raw 2018.

Have a great weekend!

Berkely Springs State Park

The other weekend my wife and I drove over to Berkeley Springs, WV for a tour of Washington Homeopathic Products and a screening of the documentary "Just One Drop" (https://www.justonedropfilm.com/). It started out as a beautiful fall morning with blue skies, white clouds and beautiful leaves on the trees. By the time we got out of the film it was raining:) I did find out about a panoramic location not far from Berkeley Springs that I will be sure to visit again. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Quiet evening at the coast

I figured it's been a while since I posted anything and I should alleviate any concerns that I'd fallen off the face of the earth. I haven't been out with my camera in what feels like a long time. This image is from a couple weeks ago when I was on travel in CA and visited Pescadero Beach state park. I processed this entire image with just On1 Photo 2018 Beta 2. It's an HDR image from a 5 image bracket set. Some parts I like a lot and in some ways it feels soft. Maybe I don't have the export sharpening settings figured out. Anyway, hope your week isn't as crazy as mine:)

Golden Shores

Here is another shot from last week at Pescadero Beach in California. I really liked the rocks in the foreground and tried a bunch of different comps and angles. I think that will be very helpful for shooting similar situations in the future as some of the angles I didn't like much at all:) The yellow glow is from the smoke hanging in the air from the fires in CA and I added a subtle texture to the sky to give it some depth.

Happy Monday!

Twilight's last glow

I headed out to Pescadero Beach last night knowing there wouldn't be much of a sunset because of now clouds. However, once the sun set, the beautiful glow enveloped the landscape ranging from golden yellow to light purple. It was beautiful and by this time I had the beach to myself:) Wishing everyone a wonderful week!

Tree Centered

This fall I only had one morning at Bear Rocks which I'm rather sad about. I'd love a few more mornings up there but that isn't going to happen. This shot was taken a bit after sunrise and I really liked the sky.

I'm definitely looking for feedback on the comp:)

Bear Rocks Colors

Sunrise at Bear Rocks is always a special event. This morning the sun managed to sneak through the clouds for just a few minutes and create some color. I couldn't stay in the area as I had to get back for work.

For this image I used a 5 image bracketed set and #AuroraHDR2018. This is my first image with the new software and I definitely like the merging process a lot better. I pulled these same images into the 2017 version and the colors in the sky were all blown out. In this case it was a much more natural merge. I did have to use it's layers capability to process the foreground separately from the sky. At some point I'll try my current workflow for HDR and see if I like the results better or not.

Have a great weekend!

Sky Blue Pink

I haven't been up to Bears Den overlook in a while so took off Sunday evening hoping to catch a good sunset. Well... not much happened with the sunset until just at the very end when these wispy clouds lit up pink. I did have a very enjoyable time talking to a family that was up there enjoying the rocks and beauty with their kids and their dog:)

Hope you are having a good start to your week!

Golden Calm

Friday morning at Bear Rocks was one of those unique days when the wind isn't howling and moving all the foliage into blurs:) While the sunrise didn't have much color, as the sun rose into the sky it did provide a little yellow complimenting the turning leaves below the rocks. I love this part of West Virginia; the raw beauty is inspiring!

Happy Monday!

Canaan Valley Wildlife Refuge

This past Thursday I drove over to Thomas, WV to attend the unveiling of 14 canvas prints of Tucker County. The event brings together the Tucker County Photography club and the Cortland Acers short & long term care facility. They hold a photography contest and a judge selects the images to be printed. I had an image selected this year and it was great to meet up with other follow photographers and see all the beautiful work enhancing the facility.

After the event I went to the Canaan Valley Wildlife Refuge off of Freeland Rd to shoot the Milky Way. I wasn't sure what to expect and it took a while wandering around on the boardwalks to find this comp. I only processed this in Lightroom and I could probably bring out the Milky Way a little more if I pulled out a few more of the tools in my tool box. I shot this at 5000 ISO and it's a little more grainy than I would like.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!
