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

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

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.

As mentioned in my last post we spent the second week of July out near the Shenandoah Mtns. The photograph above was taken on our last morning there. I was looking to capture the sunlight coming through the trees at sunrise. The sun was already risen and past the “golden hour”, but because of the mountains I was still able to capture some of the nice light. I also wanted to capture it coming through the trees.
