Clouds over Hyper Humus Marsh Paulinskill WMA Lafayette, NJ September 2021
I’ve been waiting for a dynamic sky to photograph this isolated limestone boulder for at least 2 years. I liked how the small clouds on the left and right sides of the frame lit up a little from sunlight for this frame.
Still my favorite landscape of one of my favorite escapes. I’ve been trying to recreate this shot with a newer camera for about 10 years without much success so far. The fencing and dunes have drifted dramatically since the creation of this image in 2009.
Lisa and I are looking forward to our annual retreat to Cape May in October.
Pileated Woodpecker Pair Denville NJ September 2021
On a recent morning walk around the block in Lake Arrowhead I came across Mr & Mrs Woodpecker spiraling their ways around the base of a tree. In my experience, Pileateds may tolerate a close approach by a stealthy photographer.
This was a challenging shot in order to freeze the action of two moving birds in the shade. This lucky exposure occurred at 1/60th of a second which is a chance occurrence for handholding a telephoto lens.
