Another After work jaunt! This time I found another set of waterfalls to tramp around.
I was very excited, the mushrooms are popping! Great falls the lower ones are spectacular, and nothing like that sound as well.
The hike after this started to get a bit harder, more rocks, more roots. And a little less sun, which is great for taking pictures of moving water!
With each set of falls, the trail got slightly more difficult, and the falls got prettier. Isn’t that how it always goes?
I sat down and looked over and saw this circle twisting around and instantly it reminded me of a cake, am I wrong??
So a 3 mile hike, due to going off the trail on purpose, and 4 hours later! Tada!
Rock on, dot com!
Sometimes you do not need a destination. My goal was to – drive!
I picked a road and drove, heading towards Vermont. I picked a town. Literally at random and hit – go! Lupines!!!
I love playing with perspective and focal points, I’m not great at it, but I like doing it. Looking at a flower from the ground up is different then when you look at it from above.
I loved that the clouds were coming in. The sky is such an interesting place. Some people love that sold blue. I do as well, but give me interesting clouds any day!
As I mentioned, I am part of a Facebook Photo Page that does challenges. Our challenge, if we accepted, I did, was “in the garden”. So the last two weeks I’ve spent a lot of time looking a flowers
I saw this out of the corner of my eye and totally brought me to Stephen King’s It! The old MiniSeries? Where he is standing there in the swampy area? I don’t know, I loved it I promptly slapped on the brakes and ventured along the road, down the embankment, and snapped a few pics.
Driving around I think in Lancaster? I saw a trail on the side of the road by the bridge. Stop I did! I found this old abandoned factory. So, in I went!
The most unlikely stops. A Jehovah Witness Church. Great pinks!
Last, but not least – I stopped over in Sugar Hill. I had scouted this place for some night photography, it looks great in the daytime as well!
I have done night photography ONCE and it came out rather well. I attempted it again, and fell flat. Why? My tripod didn’t rock. Well, no it DID, it swayed back and forth and I didn’t get many good pics because of the breeze. I have a new one now!
These are the few pics that did come out.
The following day, I went to the Sugar Hill Lupine Festival. I can say I did NOT take a picture of the pizza, but I assure you, it was picture worthy.
Sugar Hill is a small community but it’s gorgeous and friendly.
This was at Hilltop Inn, the owner was sweet, I aske her if I could snap some flowers pictures she said to go right ahead, but I wanted to make sure, finding a stranger laying around on their belly on your lawn can be disconcerting!
My pizza in the making – ‘nuff said
I am part of a photo board on facebook, and I am pair with Shell, from O’ Canada! Our 1st two week challenge was “In The Garden”. A few of these flower photos ended up in the challenge. She is editing hers, I may have to convince her to watermark hers and we can do a blog post.
Rock On, Dot Com – 10-4
