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!

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

06-04-2019 – Arethusa Falls

I saw this parking lot a few weeks ago, and I knew after the pictures I saw online I wanted to go there.  I also need to go back for Bemis and Frankenstein Cliffs!

This is a moderate hike, not a lot of mud, you can hear the running water most of the time.  And then you see it.

After clambering around and getting down to the creek, you can scamper right up next to the falls if you are so brave!  I didn’t feel like getting wet Smile

I fiddled with some settings.  And a few things in lightroom – which is STILL a learning curve!

05-30-2019–Lonesome Lake

What a fabulous hike.  Hard as frak!  But a great hike!

IMG_5533IMG_5534IMG_5535IMG_5537IMG_5539IMG_5555IMG_5558IMG_5563

A few smaller “water” areas here, some great wild flowers, some of the steepest inclines I’ve done in a long while as well!

IMG_5567IMG_5570IMG_5576IMG_5584IMG_5588IMG_5590IMG_5592

Just when you think “Okay I’ve had enough!” you come to a flatter area and you see this wicked lil view, but oh, it gets better!

After clambering down to take these, I knew I had to go around “the lake”.  I had my snickers bar and started walking.  Yup, it only got better.

There is a wicked dock (and a place you can stay apparently up above I caught a glimpse of it, but didn’t explore that area).  A mom and a daughter were sitting there, having sandwiches and speaking, what I think, was Korean.  Made me smile, reminded me what it is like for people who don’t speak french when I do it with folks I know.

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!

The Flume–8.19.2018

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.
