Ahh… back to nature. After a brief trip to New York with my last post, its back to familiar territory for me. The truth is I love shooting cityscapes, but I just don’t get to the city enough to do it, and when I am there, my family really isn’t concerned with what time golden hour is. So as a result, I don’t get much chance to shoot the way I would want to when I’m in that type of environment. I do have a few more shots from New York to share with you, but for now, it’s back to a more natural setting. This shot was taken along the banks of the Susquehanna River in Northern Pennsylvania. I was on a canoe trip down the river, and we were camping overnight along it’s banks. Sunrise brought a beautiful shade of blue and orange to the sky, and I couldn’t resist getting a shot. I didn’t have a tripod because we were traveling light, but I managed to get a decent hand held shot anyway. It was a beautiful weekend, and over the course of our journey, I saw my first Bald Eagle in the wild. Unfortunately, I have no photos of them to share as I was actively paddling when I saw them, but it was still an amazing site to see.
Today was my first day off since the holiday, and I’m completely messed up on what day it is. I do know that while there has been some mild and sunny weather around lately, I ‘ve mostly seen it driving to work. Today, on my day off, it rained. I know, as a photographer that’s no excuse. I should have been out there anyway, but it was REALLY raining, so I took a pass. I guess sometimes even a photographer needs a day off. Anyway, I wish you all the best and I’ll see you soon.
