Monochro-Mountains

There’s no predicting mountain weather, it can change so quickly. The Tatra Mountains near Zakopane, Poland are no exception. What to do when the weather doesn’t cooperate? No need to put the camera away! There are always good shots to be found. Since the cloudy skies and fresh snow cover made the views naturally monochromatic, I decided to work with it and go for a black and white treatment. Not much beats hiking through deep snow in the mountains with a camera and tripod!

Misty River

20130204-205340.jpg
Here is my favorite Instagram post from last week. The fog looked so nice settling on the small river here in Sterling, MA. I actually had to crawl underneath the bridge to get this shot. Not a whole lot of room under there!

Sunset Bridge

It was very mild in New England today. That plus the fact that my new Tokina 17-35 wide angle lens was delivered today, made it a no brainer to go out and shoot. This is my favorite of the day. I was in the woods mostly, but on the way back to the car the sun was setting so nicely at the top of the hill. I like how the bridge leads the eye right up to the sunburst.

River on Fire – Last Week in Instagram

photo

I have been trying to take at least one interesting photo each day via the Instagram app on my iPhone. Often, it is not convenient to carry around my “big” camera. And of course, as they say, “the best camera is the one that you have with you.”

I might start posting on each Monday my favorite photo from the previous week. This is my favorite from last week. We were on our way to our friends house in NH and the sunset was stunning shades of orange and red. We passed by this little river and loved the way the sunset was reflecting on the water. My feet got wet, but I think it was worth it.
