After Work Drive–9-27-2018

Some days I get out early.  Some days far later.  On this day: early.  I sent out to just “take some pictures.”  Most were 5-10 mins photo stops.  Here we go!

The beauty of this area is there is always something to take pictures of. Old buildings, or stone walls, or wicked reflections, or… flowing water….

I drove around towards Crawford Notch. Stop on here and there for more pictures. Caught the sun off some mountains.

Then I made a stop at Silver Cascade (I think that’s the name!) and made a quick jaunt up that, and again, more flowing water!  Then on the way home, I found Fourth Iron camping grounds and stop there before I lost the light.

The Dells–9-19-2018

My coworker, Wendy (Hi Wendy!) keeps giving me some after work suggestions which is great! Today it was The Dells, a series of small tails, literally in the middle of town.

Diana’s Bath–9-13-2018

Another after work adventure!  I had a week of short hours, just low pt load to be honest.  So instead of going home and vegging out, I hit up a few of the places that are packed on weekends.

The drive there was gorgeous!  I stopped into a few places and did a five min photo stop.  Where I take as many pics in five mins as I can.

The Bath is really pretty, the water is clear, as much in NH is, and a wonderful smell of clean for some reason struck me.

The sun was great for taking photos of my keys for my key series here!  Many places because of being on a gorge, etc, it’s a struggle or at least a challenge.

I had to stop, the clouds in the 1st pic are outrageous!

From Littleton to Lille–8-31-2018

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!

The Tram–Cannon Mountain

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!

Damn it.

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.

Working on learning my lens extenders which changes the focus of your lens so you can get closer and do some macro photography.  They aren’t as GOOD as a macro lens, but for now, they shall do!

05-25-2018–Rust and Sky

A few old cars over in PI – my friend, Jamie P, took some of the same cars – his were FAR better!

I messed up on a setting somewhere, I think my f/stop.  But I did get a few good one of the 15 I took!
