The other day I noticed some yellow turn signs on the side of the road near my house. I went online, and found that there would be a 80 mile bike race “Hell of Hunterdon” that would pass my driveway on Sunday morning. The race was scheduled to start at the nearby Elks lodge in Blawenburg. A little after 09:00 I went out with a camera and started taking pictures. I probably should have set up a tripod and automatic shutter because my hands and fingers got really cold.
A deer checking out the large branch that broke off during the last Nor’easter. The branch is larger than I can cut with my battery-powered chain saw. The prediction is for yet another Nor’easter next week.
Gone to See Iceland 2014 – Winter Photography Workshop. Day 6: Golden Circle.
Return from the center of the earth. Fisheye view from behind Seljalandsfoss, a waterfall in southern Iceland. HDR composite of 3 images taken with a Nikon Df camera and 16 mm f/2.8 fisheye lens (ISO 100, 16 mm, f/10) using Capture One Pro and Google HDR Efex Pro 2. For the title, I like the B&W version better than the color one. There are also too many artifacts (purple fringing) in the color version. In either case, it was a difficult shot with the wide range of light, and the constant spray of water from the waterfall. The pathway to the back of the waterfall was covered with ice, and I was glad I had crampons for my boots.
