Lille Mountain–09-13-2019

Does this mountain have a name?  I don’t know, I have looked but never really found it. 

This is a favorite walk of mine and I am going to do some night photography up there one of these days!

The walk up to the overlook begins at the old Parent Pond, where as a kid we’d feed the ducks and there was a small bridge.  The bridge is long gone now, but the pond is still there.

‘Nuff said.

From this vantage point you can see what was once called Lille – a small off shoot village of Grand Isle.  It used to boast a store, garages, and a nice sized camp ground with a pool.  I remember the pool!  I remember folks camping out under the huge pines as well.

Then the walk down was pretty as well – the last photo is one of the many ponds on the way up. 

Please note: this is private property and I have permission to go there.

Archer– 09-13-2019

We adopted Archer when he was 9 months.  He is reliving his “oh my god pain in the A$$” puppy phase.  So when I go home, I try and bring him for a longer walker. This time we made it up the mountain in Lille.

He’s a calm boy outside, inside is a whole other thing!

The monthly drive north – It cannot be prettier this time of year!

Some interesting clouds on the drive up this time around!

The harvest moon!  Full and bright and bringing in the fall weather.

This is Victoria’s fave tree and I’m slowly collecting photos of it and someday I’ll make her a kick ass gift!

Challenge – Framing

This challenge had to do with “framing” your photos.  Using something natural, or otherwise, to block out the focus of what you wanted focused on. 

I am NOT good at it!

But here is what I got.

The least framed one, this sun flair, yet one of my faves, because – well – sun flair!!

This was my first attempted (above) at using something natural to frame what you want to focus on.  Nature isn’t always your friend.  But I left it in the collection as while not good, it does force you to think harder to get better at your craft.

Overlooking the town of – Bath, NH.  Looking thru two trees.  Putting forth a challenge is fun, gives you the motivation to go out and “try” new things. 

Onto the next!
