Winter Classes Start Early January
Less than 2 weeks ago I returned from a great trip out west. It included an 18-day trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon on dories. I have viewed and edited the first 4 days of my photos along the river. You can get to these, and others I will post in the coming weeks, with the links on the page you get to by clicking HERE.
Here is a baker’s dozen photos from the first four days.
A world apart from Lebanon or Hanover downtowns and located roughly half way between them, Boston Lot is a wonderful place for hiking, biking, birding, and just enjoying a peaceful lake. I took this photo last Friday during an early morning loop through Norwich and Thetford. I then hiked the perimeter of Boston Lot Lake in Lebanon. The fog added to its charm. Some of the photos I took at Boston Lot are in the slide show below.
I checked out the progress of fall foliage color east of Hanover, NH yesterday. Since this area has numerous wetlands, the color is often good early as the swamp maples turn. I took Route 4A east to Cilleyville (Andover) then looped back along Route 4. The colors were well short of “peak” but I got a preview of fall. Here are some of the photos I took yesterday morning within a few miles of Rts 4 and 4A in the towns of Wilmot, Springfield, Enfield, Danbury, and Canaan.
Friday evening, September 6, 2013, I set up my camera to shoot a time lapse of the Milky Way. There were a few more clouds than I hoped, but their motion in the opposite direction as the Milky Way provided a nice effect. I started shooting when the sky was still blue at 8:27 pm and ended at 11:11 pm. The 10 second time lapse video here covers the 2 hour period from about 8:50 to 10:50. You can click the small box at the lower right to see it full frame and then hit Esc to return to normal view.
The ridgeline to the left in the video is Mount Sunapee. The streaks are much more likely to be airplanes or satellites than meteors.
For those who care about such things, the editing was done in Adobe Camera Raw (hosted by Bridge) and the video was created in Photoshop CS6.
