It's been windy and/or raining seemingly forever up here. Today was the first of what I would call a typical fall day in the Adirondacks. As the shooting conditions have been subpar for a long time, I was really excited to get up this morning and head out into the field.
The colors are pretty conspicuous now, and I've always wanted to spend some time working with the areas of the highway that were blasted out of rock way back when. There's some really interesting patterns in the rock, and usually some interesting little trees, bushes and that sort of thing that get really pretty in the fall. This spot reminds of the face of an old waterfall, for some reason.
I wanted an ethereal look, so an image overlay (Nikon users may enter here!) seemed appropriate.
Can't wait to see what it's like out there tomorrow...
I am a photo artist and writer whose heart lives in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, regardless of where I happen to be eating my breakfast each morning.
I am owner/director of the Adirondack Photography Institute, an organization dedicated to improving the quality of our lives and preserving our natural spaces through the study and practice of outdoor photography as a creative medium.
Oh yeah, if I'm lucky enough on a given day to have a choice of breakfast venue, that would be the Tamarack Café in Inlet, NY.
