Stairs and gorgeous moving water. A new challenge for me, we don’t have much of that in Northern Maine, I can tell you that!
It’s a great hike, with wonderful views. The one great thing about getting out early is being able to go do these things with no crowds!
I went off the trail for a bit as well, finding different shots, playing with the lightning.
Its far easier to take these pictures than the big grand vistas. They have everything you want, movement, texture, perspective.
These hikes are a good work out, and I get some fabulous pics from it!
and I’m not home and bored!
Driving up Mt Washington is super fun, and a little scary for someone who isn’t into heights and have bouts of vertigo.
Be ready for wind! And some of the most gorgeous views ever.
The problem with such views is no perspective at times, so things look flat and while gorgeous, lacks texture. So, that’s why the keys! and any other objects I can use to give things perspective as well as a break in the view.
It was a fun day, and again, windy!
The biggest problem I face is the crowds! Weekends are impossible to go anywhere, cars are lines along the highway for miles. And the days are growing shorter, so short hops to places are best!
Littleton is a fun little town, with a few places to take a decent picture
CHUTTERS! A huge store filled with: Candy
yes, look my keys!
And a few pictures from home. I love home. And my backyard.
The Tram. A little daunting for someone who has problems with elevation, due to my Meniere’s.
I chewed gum and was fine.
The ride up was pretty easy, I had one young man ask me about my Green Arrow Key Chain, which led to a discussion, later, about if GA could still hit a target in the wind on the top of the mountain.
When the clouds touch the mountains, isn’t that an awe inspiring sight?
It’s a short hike to the “top” of the mountain and to the observation deck. I did do one thing that day, I forgot my keys!
The most difficult part about taking pictures of mountains and clouds? Giving it something to relate it to. Hence trying to include close trees, or the view fingers.
The Flume! A pretty active day, and some great pics! No ND filters, but I managed with Fstops, long exposures and ISO
The area is gorgeous, and a lot of natural beauty.
The flowing water! ‘Nuff Said
I did a total of 5 miles on a Sunday
There is no way to take a good enough picture to show the massive walls of this place.
Of course, much to my wife’s chagrin, my keys showed up!
I ended up taking 300 photos, but editing about 80. Which is a good ratio.
Artist’s Bluff was a moderate hike! But a good one none the less!
Hello New Hampshire!
Let’s get started, shall we? I’m right in the belly of the White Mountains so after work excisions will be the norm.
Learning how to use my ND filter as well as the settings that go along with it. This was my first time out w/the filters.
It was a great hike, not overly hard, but a few places were slippery due to the rain that morning.
Finding ways to incorporate the keys into a scene is fun. And they are making for some fun pictures as well!
I was glad it was an over cast day, this way I didn’t have as many problems using the ND filter.
Just as I was heading out the sky started to clear.
