Thanks Google!!

When I opened up Chrome this morning I found a Happy Birthday on my +Google search!  I did not know they did this, it was a nice surprise and put a smile on my face.

So, thank you to Google for the simple yet often unappreciated gift of putting a smile on my face.

The Night Fisherman

This is a shoot from last summer while vacationing on #LBI  , NJ.  This a jetty by the Barnegat Lighthouse.  The Lighthouse made for some interesting colors in the water.

As I was setting up for this shoot, this guy walked out to the end of the jetty to fish.  For some reason I think he just makes the shoot.  It's amazing how such small details can change a photo.

Walk to the Beach

We are entering a decent cold spell here in the North East and it is making me long for warmer days...

While I am not much of a beach person this photo does help me warm up a bit.  This was taken last summer on LBI, NJ.  I am not too sure if we are going to get back there this year.  I have not been back to the area since Hurricane Sandy and from what I have seen on the news I would have to imagine the area is still a mess.  I hope they are able to get it ready for the summer season, but I have a feeling it is going to take a few years to get it all back to normal...

Flash Gordon's Stump

When I first found this stump I was impressed that a tree could grow like this on top of a bolder.  Well it obviously did not thrive there, but it did get much bigger than I would think.  There was something else about it that I could not quite put my finger on.  Then it hit me.  I reminded me of the stump in the 1980 film Flash Gordon.  I don't completely remember the circumstances of the scene, but I think it had something to do with some sort of bravery test.  A stump monster lived inside and would bite a person not worthy or something.  You would not catch me sticking my hand in something like this...

Bowling Green

This from the southern tip of Manhattan just above Battery Park.  I took this while on a photo walk with +Trey Ratcliff and like 200 other people.  You can see the crowd on the other side of the fountain.

I wish the sky had been a bit more interesting in this direction, but sometimes you have to take what nature gives you.  I really liked how everything seems to be pulling into the urban canyons of the financial district.

Lily Pad Sunrise

This was early one morning at a lake by my house.  I did not realize there were so many lily pads here.  I don't think I ever walked all the way around it before.  Now that I know they are here I need to figure out when they flower and make a return trip. This would be quite a site with a lake filled with flowering lily pads...

Birch Stand

I found this spot while traveling on a dirt road in Vermont.  The birch trees were just about to turn.  Another two days and this spot would be filled with color, but unfortunately I was leaving for home on this day.

The ferns on the other hand were on fire.  Blurring your vision would make this whole place look like it was burning.  It was quite a site.

Enjoy...

Fungus Critters

I took this last month while camping up in Vermont.  I went up there to shoot the foliage, but it was raining most of the time I was there.  The clouds were so low that most of the mountains could not be seen.  It is too bad because the color was quite impressive in spots.

I got a few good images, but it was simply not what I was looking for.  I was only there for 3 days so next time I go I think I will make it a week.  I would probably have a better chance of getting at least one or two good days to shoot.

On another note I finally got a new computer!!!  My old one just could not handle the photo processing any more.  Or maybe I just could not handle processing on such a slow computer.  The one I am working on now I can process photos at least 5 times faster.  It makes it much more enjoyable and since I do enjoy processing photos I am now back in the game.  Looking forward to posting more often now that I can actually finish my shoots.

Bridal Veil Falls

Here is another waterfall.  I have had a thing for them recently.  I think it is almost hard to take a bad shot of one.  This is another one from the Bushkill Falls area.

Well just wanted to upload a quick one before I head out for a camping weekend with my boys and the Scouts.  It might be a bit cold, but I don't see any rain in the forcast.  Should be a good weekend.  I am also taking the camera along for the trip.  Not too sure what kind of shots I will get, but I wouldn't get any if I don't bring the camera :)

Bridesmaid's Falls

This was taken a Bushkill falls in PA.  It is a great place to get some shoots of waterfalls.  I think there is about 6 different waterfalls in a relatively compact area.

It was raining on and off while I was there and I did not have a rain sleeve for my camera.  I ended up cutting a hole in a ziploc bag and tied it to my lens hood.  It worked fairly well, but I now carry rain sleeves with me just in case I get caught out like this again.

With this particular shoot I had to climb over the rail on the path and climb a small hill to an area that was sheltered by over hanging rocks.  I ended up spending some extra time here just to get out of the rain.
