Walking the Canal

Old Erie Canal Park, DeWitt, NY

It felt like I hadn’t been there in forever, which, surprisingly was most of the summer. I went for a walk during lunch earlier in the week at the Old Erie Canal Park near work. I was thinking I would be able to find a little autumn color and luckily I hadn’t missed it. The day was absolutely beautiful with the right amount of cloud cover to provide the right light for my images. Truthfully, it was hard to go back to work…

Aerial Clayton

Clayton, NY

My friend Justin has a drone. Lately we have been talking about capturing images with it and how to use it to create high dynamic range (HDR) pictures. He had the opportunity this past weekend to explore the area around Clayton, NY while his wife was busy being a bridesmaid. It’s not as bad as it sounds. He wasn’t a part of all the festivities over the weekend which allowed him to fly around in the mornings. He was there for the important evens.

He let me import all his images into Lightroom so I could show him what can be done with all those exposure brackets he captured. We reviewed all the pics during lunch but last night I went to town and processed a few of my favorites (there are more still to work on). Justin doesn’t claim to be a photographer but he has a damn good eye…

Delta Setting

Delta Lake State Park

A quick, short run up to Delta Lake for the sunset yields a few interesting images. This late in the season the park is mostly deserted which, to be truthful, is how I enjoy it best. The water level is a little low allowing me to walk the shoreline looking for different views. I tried to be a little creative with the last image combining an in focus view with one intentionally out of focus. My attempt at something dreamy
