Mount Washington, NH–9-8-2018

Driving up Mt Washington is super fun, and a little scary for someone who isn’t into heights and have bouts of vertigo.

Be ready for wind!  And some of the most gorgeous views ever.

The problem with such views is no perspective at times, so things look flat and while gorgeous, lacks texture.  So, that’s why the keys!  and any other objects I can use to give things perspective as well as a break in the view.

The Flume!  A pretty active day, and some great pics!  No ND filters, but I managed with Fstops, long exposures and ISO

I ended up taking 300 photos, but editing about 80.  Which is a good ratio.

Sunday Funday–08-12-2018

Every single trail head was PACKED today!  so, instead I found the quiet places.  I guess I will be hiking after work.  !

And there are the keys!  They make a good prop – 8 for the # of assignments and 3 for the # of years I’ve been a PTA. 

I’m working on using my ND filters, so I’m not quite there yet!  Waterfalls here we go later this week!

Night Stars and Lilies–8-18-2017

I tried my hand at a few night shots – I need to get a trigger bulb!  No way outta that!  Next investment Smile

Deer Isle/Stonington 2/14/2017

The on thing about the coast, is it’s always changing.  One day the ground is clear, the next 24 inch of snow!

We got slammed and are waiting on more in the next 24 hours.  Go down south they said, it’s warmer they said!

I love these old places, there is so much character here!

When it snows, typically the next day the sky is bright blue and the water is gorgeous as calm.

The colors just started to come in through the hazy clouds as I drove home today, snapped a few pictures.  I’ve gotten into the habit carrying my camera with me. 

Haystack Mountain

My wife, god love her, as I do, isn’t an outdoors person. I am. ATVs, hiking, walking in the woods, going off and finding abandon houses, tramping along the railroad bed. But, I did get her to climb Haystack Mountain! Whooot!

Desert Flowers

Don’t let them deceive you!  These flowers are very small!

But very pretty.  The white sand sticks to the oils of the flowers and in the sunlight looks like star-light, and sparkle.
