Autumn Nature in New Jersey. Sourland Mountain Preserve.
Worldwide Photo Walk 2011. This was my first Worldwide Photo Walk. One of the photo walks just happened to be at the nearby Sourland Mountain Preserve. I saw the note about it a few hours before it started, but was still able to sign up and join the group!
Gone to See America 2008. Moab Utah Photography Workshop with Winston Hall. Day 5: Arches National Park.
Time-Lapse Video of a Hike down Park Avenue in Arches National Park. Winston Hall talked me into carrying a tripod on my shoulders so the Nikon D3 camera would be above my head. We set the camera up with a 16 mm f/2.8 fisheye lens and had it take images every 15 seconds. I used the ~850 images to make a time-lapse video of the hike. This was before the days of the lightweight GoPro cameras. All of the images have been re-processed with Capture One Pro for the new version of the time-lapse video.
Thanks to Jim Batey, I’ve added an image he took of me wearing the Tripod Headcam.
Early Springtime Backyard Nature and A Geology Walk at Rock Mill Preserve.
Several small birds working the bird feeder greeted me in the morning. I switched to a Nikon D4 camera and 600 mm f/4 lens on a Wembly tripod just inside the patio door. The camera is just past the minimum focus distance for this camera/lens combination. Birds captured include: Tufted Titmouse, Black Eyed Junco, Chipping Sparrow, House Finch, American Robin, and Black Crow. Later, in the afternoon I attended a monthly “Sunday Walk in the Park” events. This month the subject was the geology in central New Jersey and took place at Rock Mill Preserve, located within walking distance from my house.
Individual images from the slide shows can be viewed here.
Sunday in the Park at the opening of the Rock Mill Preserve.
Hard to believe that it has been four years since the park opened. My contractor was going to build a house there, but sold the land to become a park as part of the Montgomery Township open-space program. The Rock Mill Preserve park is within walking distance of my house. Images taken with a Leica X2 camera, and the RAW images converted to B&W using Capture One Pro.
