The Flume–8.19.2018

The Flume!  A pretty active day, and some great pics!  No ND filters, but I managed with Fstops, long exposures and ISO

Baby Flume and The Basin 08-14-2018

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.

Sunday Funday–08-12-2018

Every single trail head was PACKED today!  so, instead I found the quiet places.  I guess I will be hiking after work.  !

And there are the keys!  They make a good prop – 8 for the # of assignments and 3 for the # of years I’ve been a PTA. 

I’m working on using my ND filters, so I’m not quite there yet!  Waterfalls here we go later this week!

A wicked cool metal works place in Bethlehem, NH. 

Drive to New Hampshire

Leaving home isn’t ever easy.  I have the advantage of having a wicked wife.  I also enjoy stopping, stretching my legs and taking a few pics.

The drive:

I was on a mission, I wanted some keys..I needed 11 old keys.  8 for the # of assignments and 3 for the number of years I’ve been a PTA… I thought it would make a great prop for photos!

This is how I ended the day.  I unpacked and set up my two keep sakes from home.

Supergirl to remind me I can do anything I set my mind too.  And that Jules loves me to the moon and back and supports me in all that I do.

This, however, how my day began.

Before this I’ve never taken a night photo.  I didn’t have tripod.  I had no clue about the settings.  I winged it!
