When I arrived, I passed a small cascade with some nice color and then walked a bit farther to this cliff edge. I wish I had a photo to show just how big of a drop it is from the ledge but taking this photo definitely required me to abandon any fear of heights. That small patch of yellow was perfectly positioned along the cliff edge and I set about trying different shutter speeds to best capture the rush of water below.
The sun finally came out for two frames and highlighted the small branch in the cliff making for my favorite image of the set. Not a bad way to start the trip.
Then it was off to scout the ponds and I made my way through Newport. Good color facing St Marys Church on the hill over the pond. Otherwise probably peak this weekend. (pic to come)
I finished up by scouting out Jobs pond for the AM shot and then made my way to Island Pond where I caught a bit of light on the one section with color:
Stayed at the Lakefront Inn and Motel. Not a bad spot. Plenty of vacancies. Little in the way of food in town. Here's the room:
Woke up at 6am next morning and walked down the stairs where I had noticed a nice little dock to use as a foreground element. The skies finally decided to cooperate and got some nice keepers:
Then it was a mad dash to Jobs to get there before any color left the sky and I got this favorite:
From there it was on to Long Pond. Still have a few to process from there but I picked this one last night:
I drove by Newark Pond and found some nice fog there to play with:
It's a grey day in MA so will have time to work on some more pix and will update thread when done. It was a fun but tiring 36 hour, 511 mile trip...
You are just lighting it up (not pun intended) this year. Looks like a really productive year for the portfolio, congrats on the great shots!orenphotography wrote:Back home and posting pix to this thread. Hope you like them. Some great color in the NEK - best I've seen in past 4 years. Thanks to this forum for pointing out the best spots.
If it sounds too good to be true, its probably . . . .
Drove 511 miles in 36 hours and took 588 photos to end up with 30 solid images and 11 favorites...that's not too bad
Click on a photo to see it larger then scroll with arrow keys or mouse. If you keep going you'll see Owls Head from last year. I may need to drive up next week and get a shot to replace that one
Can you tell us what camera and lens you use for getting such vivid pictures?
Here it is in the winter:
