Grafton Notch–NOT!–09-28-2019

Sunday I decided to head to Grafton Notch in Maine.  Found a shorter trail, looked up the weather (no rain until 5pm) we are good to go!

Firs stop – a bridge!  With just enough color for it to make for a good picture.

Next stop – another bridge!  This one in Groveton!  The sky was crazy!  The light was weird, but it still made for some good photos!

Then I stopped in Stark and look, another bridge!  I find it odd that the church seemed to have horns – just saying.

And more color and one really cool flag planted in the middle of the water and a great reflection.

We just recently purchase the property next door, the one that I began my life at.  The old occupant – left behind some stuff… Including

An old disco ball (a mini)

The first photo below is the view to the west, the next is the view to the east.  They look nothing alike.

I’ve been playing around with more focus, and depth of field, aperture, etc.  Sometimes finding a good subject to practice on is difficult, other times you need to make things up.

And  then, the sky changed.  It moved from dark and foreboding to pink and glorious.

The great thing about being a Traveling PTA – well, the travel! 

I adored New Mexico – vastly different than the eastern side of the US – and I’d go again (I totally want to retire in Alamogordo!)

I love working on perspective – getting down on my belly, back, looking up or down at something.  We typically look at the world from one POV – standing upright and head on.

One of my VERY few cell phone pictures – and HDR’ed in photoimpact – I couldn’t miss out on this really cool looking metal and rope bell hanging there.

This was sort of my “rust” series.  It’s amazing what mother nature does to the world at times.

Sand Beach, Stonington, ME – This has been my BEST selling photo.  I had so many requests via Facebook that I sent along canvas prints – there are great colors in this shot!
