Cherry Mountain–7-24-2019

Oh Cherry Mountain!  Nice hike on a very hot day, shady and comfortable hike.  A few steep spots however.  Worth the trek!

IMG_6942IMG_6930IMG_6933IMG_6936IMG_6938IMG_6939IMG_6940IMG_6941

Of course, I hunted out the mushrooms.  As well as how the great shafts of light were hitting the ground.  Never know what you will find and make for a great picture.

Mr. Frog jumped over my boots so I thought I’d take his picture.  He didn’t sit still for very long, however.

The views!  You cannot beat the views, can you?  ‘nuff said.

Wonder Woman! 

I have several trinkets that I carry with me.  Wonder Woman is one of them.  I thought I’d give a nice perspective shot a try. 

Sugarloaf North Trail–07-03-2019

Great hike!  Not super long (3 miles total).

IMG_6502IMG_6496IMG_6497

Can’t say enough about the views.

And the lens ball!  This thing is a heavy lil bugger too.  And the keys make an appearance!

Kingsman Trail to Bold Notch

This was a bit more challenging than I thought it was going to be.  A lot of water crossing and balancing, but a great hike!

As always the views at the top were stellar!  Quiet and peaceful and so worth the 4000 calorie burn!

I got a lens balls and I have been having some fun with it.  Not sure I am in love with it, but I am working towards that!

As always I found mushrooms!  When it takes 3 miles to get up to the views, sometimes you entertain yourself with taking pictures of ‘shrums.

Littleton, NH–06-29-2019

I took a quick walk while antiquing for my sister in law, and took along my Rebel.

Frankenstein Tressels! 6-17-2019

Maybe its just the name, but I do like this place!

IMG_5970IMG_5975IMG_5976IMG_5977IMG_5980IMG_5983

As an aside, one of the worst marked trails ever!

Also a tough hike, not a moderate trail at all, definitely on the hard side!

IMG_5998IMG_5985IMG_5990IMG_5991IMG_5997IMG_5996

I am going to somehow get a night shoot here this summer!  I think it would be sweet!

06-15-2019–VT Road Trip!

Sometimes you do not need a destination.  My goal was to – drive!

I picked a road and drove, heading towards Vermont.  I picked a town.  Literally at random and hit – go!  Lupines!!!

I love playing with perspective and focal points, I’m not great at it, but I like doing it.  Looking at a flower from the ground up is different then when you look at it from above.

IMG_5866IMG_5867IMG_5868IMG_5876IMG_5877IMG_5880IMG_5883

I loved that the clouds were coming in.  The sky is such an interesting place.  Some people love that sold blue.  I do as well, but give me interesting clouds any day!

As I mentioned, I am part of a Facebook Photo Page that does challenges.  Our challenge, if we accepted, I did, was “in the garden”.  So the last two weeks I’ve spent a lot of time looking a flowers Smile

IMG_5932IMG_5933IMG_5917IMG_5920IMG_5925IMG_5931

I saw this out of the corner of my eye and totally brought me to Stephen King’s It!  The old MiniSeries?  Where he is standing there in the swampy area?  I don’t know, I loved it I promptly slapped on the brakes and ventured along the road, down the embankment, and snapped a few pics. 

IMG_5949IMG_5946IMG_5947IMG_5948

Driving around I think in Lancaster?  I saw a trail on the side of the road by the bridge.  Stop I did!  I found this old abandoned factory.  So, in I went!

IMG_5958IMG_5961IMG_5963IMG_5953IMG_5954IMG_5955IMG_5957

The most unlikely stops.  A Jehovah Witness Church.  Great pinks!

Last, but not least – I stopped over in Sugar Hill.  I had scouted this place for some night photography, it looks great in the daytime as well!

05-25-2019

Rhys and mirror ball. 

I gave Rhys my old Rebel, with a simple lens and he came over Saturday to get some pictures in.

The potato field was like a desert and super sandy!  Made for taking fun pics!

08-02-2018–Former church of Notre-Dame du Mont-Carmel

I finally hiked (1000 feet) over to the Musee that was a former church up my road.  I’ve taken many pictures of the place before and do like getting some inside pics ever few years.
