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.
Had some trouble coming up with what to post this week. So decided to post this photography from 2019. When I took this the solitude of the one cow grazing, the rest of the herd was about 500 ft to the right, caught my eye at the time.
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.
This photograph was taken on Cadillac Mountain in Maine. The view is NNW and you can see the Porcupine Islands and Bar Island. On the left side you can see Bar Harbor.
This photograph of the Shenandoah Mountains was taken on July 12 in the early morning. This was looking south from a hilltop on the north side of the South Fork Shenandoah River. You can see the steam rising from the valleys.
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.
The above photograph is from Skyline Drive in Virginia. Last year around this time my wife an I took a little trip to Charlottesville, VA for a few days. On our way back we drove through the Shenandoah NP for part of the way home. This photograph was from one of the overlooks along the route.
Photograph of some wind surfers in front of the Delaware Breakwater East End Lighthouse. This was in November 2018, and I don’t think the water was warm enough for my taste. The clouds and the kites provide a lead in to the light house in the middle.
