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.
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.
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!
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!
Littleton is a fun little town, with a few places to take a decent picture
CHUTTERS! A huge store filled with: Candy
yes, look my keys!
And a few pictures from home. I love home. And my backyard.
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!
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!
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!
I had some visitors. I’ve been working on camera settings a lot lately.
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.
Fingers in the sky and abandon doors.
I’ve been doing these – “Take as many in five as you can” sessions lately, as I drive home.
Not much difference between the color (above) and the black and white (below)
