Big Beach View

Delta Lake State Park

I wish I could blame the Mother Nature for my lack of photography lately. Although she has contributed with this constant drizzle I have been a little busy (or is the four letter word lazy). Either way, it felt good to venture out last night with the camera. Nothing too crazy, a quick trip up to my old stand-by, Delta Lake State Park for the sunset. Or, what might have been a sunset if a front wasn’t passing through my area.

I promise, the sun was out and shining when I left the house. The ten minute drive saw my hopes for a view of the sun disappear behind the clouds but it did present an interesting big picture view. I worked a few different scenes as the official time for the sunset approached. I was lucky. There was no wind and it created an amazingly calm lake which provided great reflections.

As I was leaving the beach area I stopped to enjoy the view one last time. I couldn’t help myself. The view was begging for a nice panoramic image. In the sand, it only took me a few minutes to level the tripod so I could rotate the head and capture my set. Seven images later I was confident I captured what I needed. Lightroom does a fantastic job merging the images into a single picture. A quick process through Luminar and I had my autumn image of Delta Lake.

Morning Light Art

1000 Islands Harbor Hotel, Clayton, NY

The morning after my friend’s wedding I wandered around the river’s edge before sunrise. My original plan was to spend more time exploring the area but my son was making an unexpected trip home for the day so I grabbed some morning light images and headed home.

I loved the walkway next to the hotel. There was plenty of chalk and anyone/everyone was encouraged to create some art. I tried to capture some of what I found in the morning light. I also wanted to highlight the location of the 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel. It is literally, right at the water’s edge. I’m thinking I need to return for more photography… 🙂

The Annual Pilgrimage

Trenton Falls Scenic Trail

It is that time of the year again! The Trenton Falls Scenic Trail was open this weekend. I know it is generally the same weekend each year but this year feels early. Last year there seemed to be more fall colors in the trees. Anyway, the pictures are pretty much the same… LOL. The views really cannot change much from year to year. Hopefully I am improving as a photographer and I’m able to present a better image each year. I’ll let you decide…
