Early Morning Find

This is a great time of year for taking photographs, the cool mornings provide for fog rising of the water bodies. This past weekend I took a drive down long the Hudson River here in Greene County to find this boat anchored in a small cove. I will be going back to this location and work this subject more prior to owners pulling it out of the water for the winter.

Digital Infrared Images

The look of snow in the middle of summer is called Digital Infrared Photography. Below are images I took over the past few weeks using my Nikon D200 which has been converted to only capture infrared light waves, rendering green foliage white like snow.

Micro 4/3 Imaging

I have had Olympus Micro 4/3 Pen camera system for over a year now but never used it that much. Lately I have been back making images and now using the Pen system more. Here are a few images taken over the last few weeks with the Olympus Pen EP-2 and the kit 14-42mm lens. I have always loved the Hasselblad square format that the nice thing with the Pen system you can set it up to shoot square format images.

PS Even though Copy Right stamp says 2011 they where taken in 2012

iPhone on the Hudson River

I have been spending some time out on a friends boat here on the Hudson River. While on the river I took some images with the iPhone and then processed them using Snapseed iPhone App. The images are not near the quality you would get from a Digital camera like the Nikon D700, but not bad considering they are from a cell phone and then processed directly in the phone.

Tropical Storm Irene close to a year later

We are approaching the one-year anniversary of Topical Storm Irene here in upstate New York. Tropical Storm Irene hit the Catskill Mountain top area with a vengeance on August 28th 2011. It was September 11th I decided to take a trip up to Hunter and Windham area of the Catskill Mountains. It was heart breaking seeing what Mother Nature had done to this area and the destructive force of this storm.

Today I went back to some of the same locations as I was at back last year. These images are from the same location showing the hard work of mankind to restore towns and roadways. It was nice to see things being restored and people getting back to a normal life, but still sad to see areas that homes where totally destroyed that have force families to leave the area.

Life can be tough but events like this make use tougher and bring us closer together to help out our fellow neighbors.
