Foggy Fall Color

Nikon D7500, 18.0-140.0mm @38.0mm, 1/25 sec., f/7.1, ISO 125

Finally was able to get out and take some photographs. This tree is located near the path by my house. The angle and the fog provided some depth. Did I say that I finally had fog to work with. Without it the background would distract from the tree. Would also like to point out the spider webs in the foreground. I did photograph the spider webs and will probably post them at a later date.

Shenandoah Mtns. B&W

Ricoh Diacord G (Film), 1/250 sec., f/8.0, Ilford HP5 Plus ISO 400

Another photograph taken with one of the film cameras I have inherited. This is photograph was taken on 12 July 2020, the same day and location as “Mountain Morning” was. I did do some adjustments to the exposure and contrast in Lightroom. The camera is a Ricoh Diacord G TLR and uses 120 film. I’ve taken a few rolls with the camera and have become quite happy with most of the results. I’m looking forward to taking some color photographs with it in the future.

Brandywine Falls 2

Nikon D60, 18.0-140.0mm @30.0mm, 1/125 sec., f/5.6, ISO 200

Another photograph of Brandywine Falls, only this time from the middle. I took numerous photographs of the falls and trail leading to it that day and as normal just getting to look at all those photographs. Not sure if my editing does this any good and I obviously blew out the highlights.

Burnside Bridge

Nikon D7500, 18.0-140.0mm @32.0mm, 1/1000 sec., f/4.5, ISO 200

The photograph above is of the Burnside Bridge in Antietam National Battlefield. I took this on Sept. 24, 2019, about a year ago, a lot has changed since then. While most people know this as Burnside Bridge, named after the Union Major General Ambrose E. Burnside. The bridge has two other names, one is “Rohrbach’s Bridge”, after a local farmer Henry Rohrbach who lived nearby. The second name, “Lower Bridge” is in reference to the Upper Bridge and Middle Bridge located further upstream that also allowed movement of freight, animals, and people across the Antietam Creek.

Water Logged

Nikon D7500, 16.0-80.0mm @46.0mm, 1/8 sec., f/8.0, ISO 250

On 30 July I visited one of the local parks in my area in hopes to get some photographs of the man-made falls. While my initial thought was there was no good compositions, I decided to go back and look at them again. I took numerous shots of this log in the water and decided that I liked this one because it seemed to lead the viewer from the shore to the falls with the log in the middle.

Humming Bird

Nikon D60, 55.0-200.0mm @200.0mm, 1/80 sec., f/5.6, ISO 800

We have a few bird feeders in our back yard, and recently two Humming Birds have been visiting. I finally got out the camera to take a few photographs of them. As it was getting late the light was not the best, so I had to up the ISO to hand hold the camera. This is one of the better photographs I took of one of them at the feeder.
