My family and I spent Thanksgiving Week at Ocean City, MD. While there we went out to Assateague Island National Seashore, where we hiked some of the shorter trails. Above is a photograph of the building at Ferry Landing taken from the “Life of the Forest” boardwalk. Would have prefered a different sky, but still like that I captured the reflection in the marsh pool.
Going back to the summer in Shenandoah, VA. This is a photograph of one of the trees we saw at the parking areas along Skyline Drive. I like the shapes of the branches and how the side facing the parking area is bare showing the patterns in the bark.
Another photograph from a couple of weeks ago. This is one of the few that I took of the leaves on the other side of the river.
Another photograph from 23 October. This one is of an area that I posted in June, Pond. I had been hoping to revisit it when the time and coloring were different. I had almost forgot about it, but as I was turning up the path I turned back to check it out. I’m glad I did because I think that the fog and partial fall coloring made it worthwhile.
Photograph from a couple of weeks ago. It was a foggy day and damp so the spider webs were wet and created a nice contrast to the background.
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.
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.
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.
Took this photograph last summer. My son and I visited Cedar Point and on the way home we stopped at Cuyahoga Valley National Park. I took a hike down to see Brandywine Falls and take a few photographs. This is from slightly above the falls.
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.
