6.26.2020–Backyard Sunset

At first, I didn’t think it would be much of a sunset, but I was wrong.

IMG_0881IMG_0882IMG_0883IMG_0884IMG_0885

Had a lot of pinks, and purples, and blue skies. 

IMG_0886IMG_0889IMG_0888IMG_0891IMG_0892IMG_0898IMG_0903IMG_0899

As it got darker, the colors got deeper.

Rhys Adventures–10-19-2019

Long over due post, right! 

IMG_8361IMG_8362IMG_8365IMG_8368

It was a dreary day, but Rhys and I were heading out – we had lunch at Grammy’s and then hit the river trail in Houlton – we had a blast.  I think his pics came out better than mine to be honest.

The day was chilly, but once we started hiking it warmed up and we found the river trail to be a nice hike, more of a walk to be honest.

Emerald Pond/Mt Washington –08-23-2019

Off I went to Emerald Pond.  Had there been more sun I think the photos would have come out better.  I then took a jaunt up Mt. Washington but no views at the top!  Completely clouded over.

Such a cool spot, and there are fish as well, and its deep! Not that I went swimming!

IMG_7437IMG_7423IMG_7424IMG_7432IMG_7434IMG_7436

I could have sat here all day. 

IMG_7452IMG_7440IMG_7441IMG_7442IMG_7443IMG_7444IMG_7450IMG_7451

Such a cool drive, and while it challenges the hell out of my MD, I do it anyway.  A mile from the top it was a solid cloudbase.  I went up and there was not a view to be had!

IMG_7425IMG_7427IMG_7430IMG_7406IMG_7407IMG_7421

I picked up a funko pop figure of the Green Arrow! While I was in Boston.  I took him out of the box – I know, sacrilege, right!  And he came with me to, well, Emerald Pond – Emerald Archer…. Emerald Pond…..

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!

Backyard Perspectives–7-27-2018

Backyard can be fun.  I tend to shoot back there often, since I’ve land and several different perspectives.

I love that I have a potato field to one side, the view of the church on the other, the river just beyond that and the RR Tracks.

An Impromptu dash around the valley for some sunset shots.

My back yard.  Yes, that’s mine.  Simple, yet gorgeous.

Fingers in the sky and abandon doors. 

Perfection.

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)

Driving home can be an adventure of its own.  These are the captures of an evening when the sun sets early and the colors were close to perfect.  All about Shadows and Light.
