On the Canal

Bellamy Harbor Park, Rome, NY

While I was exploring Bellamy Harbor Park the other evening I was able to capture a couple of the barge canal travelers docked for the night. The visitor in the distance on the left is a large luxury yacht from Chicago. The smaller sail boat on the right is from California. Amazing to see the different type of adventurers that explore the barge canal. It also didn’t hurt my image that there was beautiful color in the sky as the sun dropped below the clouds.

There was an attempt to get an ice cream cone last night but the crowds were out of control. Decided to postpone that treat until later in the week. It was then I realized it was about an hour until sunset and the day was still great. I packed up the camera and headed to Bellamy Harbor Park for some images.

It was good to see so many people at the park enjoying the evening. There was a group of people bringing in their kayaks, quite a few people fishing and even more out for a stroll along the barge canal. I wanted to ask if I could grab a pic of the kayaks on the stony landing as I think I could have composed a nice image with the overflow and sunset in the background, but it was three younger girls and I felt awkward approaching them with my camera. I think I missed an opportunity…

Oh well, I did pull out the Lensball and I think I managed to capture a pretty cool image. It helps when there is already a reflection in the water. Even though the Lensball inverts the image, it is hard to tell with the reflection. 🙂

The Inner Sanctum

Monochrome, Dandelion

It felt like forever since I had visited the Old Erie Canal Park in DeWitt during lunch. I definitely needed the visit! Long work days and miserably rainy weather of late left my batteries needing a recharge. I decided to focus on the small detail so I left the macro lens attached, changed into my hiking shoes and headed off down the path through the woods.

Of course, one of the subjects I find would be dandelions. I can’t help myself. The delicate, intricate details draw me in every time. Half the fun is finding the right dandelion to photograph. On this one I wanted to highlight the amazing structure of the dandelion head at the center of the puff ball… 🙂

The grape hyacinths are out finally. I managed to take a little time to go exploring with the macro lens looking for the little floral creations. I came home with a few good finds…
