Last night it was my intention to photograph a meteor shower—as announced by the TV weather people, but the moonlight was overpowering and I think I went out too early. On the way home while passing many homes decorated by large and small Christmas light displays I was taken by the idea of shooting the lights from my moving car. Here are some of the results.
Which one is your favorite?
If you follow my work on this and other web sites you know I have a strong connection to the Appleton Farms & Grass Rides property in Ipswich and Hamilton, MA. Managed by The Trustees of Reservations it is said to be the oldest continuously used farm in America — established 1638. Closed to the public for a few months due to Clovid-19, Molly and I were happy to return to the re-opened farm. Photos made with new iPhone SE, processed in Adobe Lightroom.
Columbus Day weekend means thousands of leaf-peepers invade The White Mountain National Forest, and I have avoided this weekend for years, until now. And, what a reward! I explored many familiar waterfalls, scenic vistas, and easy trails. Equipped with one Nikon body just two lenses, a pouch of filters, and my new secret weapon — a drone— I managed to avoid most of the traffic, get some good shots and met some nice people. Among those was a Brazilian photographer, and an attractive bridal couple getting their “formals” taken on the Tuckerman Ravine Trail.
