In 2016 we took a balloon ride near where we live. One of the cool things was that there was another balloon flying with us. While going through old photographs looking for something to post I came upon this one. I cropped it into a 1×1 format and made some adjustments to the photograph and came up with this. The picture was taken around 8:30 am on 15 October. You can see the fog and the some of the fall colors.
Photograph from July 2018 in the Florida Keys. I was down there with my son’s Scout Troop and we were staying on a sailboat as part of our Seabase adventure. Took this photograph at sunset from the sailboat anchored just west of Fleming Key near Key West. The photograph was taken with a point and shoot.
Another photograph from October of the path near my house. This is looking east along the path.
Another photograph from Assateague Island National Seashore, this is on the marsh side. I was interested in capturing the yellow-orange of the marsh grass and the patterns formed by the grass and water. May have pushed the saturation a bit too far.
Another photograph from Assateague National Seashore, this one from the beach. I was looking to capture the pattern of the waves as they stacked up.
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.
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.
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.
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.
