A Stop on the way to Work

Bellamy Harbor Park

The past few mornings have started off with beautiful sunrises. I was getting tired of watching the sky show on my way to work so yesterday morning I stopped at Bellamy Harbor Park to capture some images. I did not have to be to work my usual amount of early. It was a great decision. Starting my day with the camera was definitely the way to go…

The first view is where the Mohawk River meets the barge canal. I was a little early for the morning colors but I really like the lights along the pedestrian bridge and their reflection in the water.  The long exposure also helps create an interesting pattern in the water below the small dam.

The second image is Bellamy Harbor Park proper as the sun starts throwing that color into the sky.  There was slight movement in the clouds which creates the blurred effect in the sky due to the 25 second exposure. 

I could have stayed at the park all morning.  When I got to work there was a better display in the sky with the sun peaking through the breaking clouds.  I know that would have looked good as the backdrop to either of these images.  Maybe this weekend I’ll get lucky…

Fresh Epcot

International Flower & Garden Festival, Epcot

Typically my Spring trip to Walt Disney World is for the International Flower & Garden Festival at Epcot. Not that I use any of the information or ideas I gather while touring around the park when I get back home.  I like to capture pictures of the flowers. Especially after a winter in Upstate New York.

Disney usually pulls out all the topiary and strategically places then around the park. I will say it seemed this year there were fewer topiary to view. I’ve never taken an official count but some of my favorites were missing… 😦

I did have to share this particular image of my buddy Donald Duck at the entrance to Showcase Plaza. I tried to get an angle that included his nephews but I could not maneuver into a good location that minimized the background distractions.
