Gone to See Iceland 2014 – Winter Photography Workshop. Day 5: South East Coast.
Grass covered unmarked graves surrounding the sod covered Hof church (Hofskirija) in Eastern Iceland. Composite of 3 images taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera and Zeiss 12 mm f/2.8 lens (ISO 200, 12 mm, f/16, 1/20, 1/40, 1/60 sec). Image processed using Google HDR Efex Pro.
Late Winter Backyard Morning Nature in New Jersey.
Dawn colors as viewed from my rear patio door. The snow is nearly knee-deep. It will be a few days before this all melts. Composite of six images taken with a Nikon D810a camera and 14-24 mm f/2.8 lens. The colors in the eastern sky disappeared within a few minutes. Four trees, lots of branches and my last Rhododendron were lost due to the heavy snow and strong winds. During the rest of the day, there were several power glitches. A little after 23:00 the power went out completely for about an hour while the PSE&G crews reconnected some of the neighbors houses.
Backyard Late Winter in New Jersey. Nor’easter Two.
Winter finally arrived with the second nor’easter in a week. This time with lots of snow. The snow started last night. By mid-day it was coming down pretty fast. I was surprised when I had an Amazon Prime – Prime Pantry delivery. In the past, UPS or USPS would hold the delivery if it was snowing. The independent Amazon delivery folks came through. The driver did indicate he was having issues with the GPS on his phone not working, and had to use a map. During the afternoon I heard thunder, and several trees falling. I took these images just before 17:00 while it was still light out. In some places the snow was up to my knees. It will be a while before I can get the car up the driveway. It looks like I lost 3 or 4 trees, and my last Rhododendron bush. I will miss the Rhododendron flowers since they attracted both bees and hummingbird moths. By evening the power was spiking several times. It only went out once, but I did have to reset several devices.
