12.21.2015 Enfield Lookout Dawn over Quabbin Valley and Mount Monadnock

Sorry for my absence.  I took a blogging break for the past week, but not from photography.  Yesterday morning was a beaut. Have a great week as we approach Christmas and its rare full moon.

11.01.2015 Quabbin Valley Autumn from Enfield Lookout

Continuing the tour of favorite places, here’s two ladder’s eye views of the valley.  I did remember my ladder this time and got the trees separated, mostly, from the opposite shoreline.  In the distance is Mount Monadnock well lit by … Continue reading

10.17.2015 Quabbin Valley from Enfield Lookout at Dawn

I have to break this rut-shooting from the same locations repeatedly.  Well…I am not really serious about that.  Sometimes it takes multiple visits to a location before finding conditions that suit your vision and there is also the likelihood that … Continue reading

09.06.2015 Enfield Lookout at Sunrise

Kind of a misleading title.  Sunrise was a few minutes before this shot, but the park didn’t open until almost 6:30…the sign says that’s when the gates open but they usually are a little earlier.  Also, we are looking north … Continue reading

08.22.2015 Another moody view

Maybe I will start a category of images called “The Moody Views”.  🙂 Thursday’s post seemed to fall flat, so I am expecting this one to not be terribly popular either.  Lots of clouds and fog this morning, but I … Continue reading

08.08.2015 Mount Monadnock from Enfield Lookout-take two

This is more what I was thinking my previous attempt should have looked like.  I’m still thinking that I’d like to get a clear shot with no trees and after the light was over I think I found another perspective … Continue reading

08.04.2015 Enfield Lookout a few minutes later

Light can change rapidly in the early morning.  This west view was made just a short while after yesterday’s image looking to the north.  I liked that the top of the trees were just kissed by the warm sunrise light … Continue reading

08.03.2015 Mount Monadnock from Enfield Lookout

I posted out of order so this is a Mount Monadnock Prequel, I guess.  Taken one day earlier from a vantage point several miles to the south in Quabbin Park, there is similar light to Sunday’s post and a lot … Continue reading

02.20.2011 Fun with Nik Silver Efex Pro

A piece of software I picked up last year is Nik’s Silver Efex Pro for black and white conversions as a plug in for Photoshop.  It is just a super piece of engineering and makes B&W an exciting process. Here’s … Continue reading
