Through The Lens 159 – Happy New Year!

Early Morning in the Yard

As usual with the last post of the year, I’d like to share a few favorite images. The image above is from the Wiscasset Waterville & Farmington Railway Museum in Alna, ME. A place I visited for the first time this year and look forward to seeing again. Below is the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad, also a first visit for me and I’m looking forward to visiting again in March to see a rare articulated logging locomotive run:

Hathaway Slough Trestle

Next is Multnomah Falls, located in the Columbia River Gorge:

Multnomah Falls Moonrise

Photographing B-29 Superfortress ‘Doc” was a happy accident and lots of fun:

The opportunity to photograph the battle from within the French Village at Mid Atlantic Air Museum’s WWII Weekend was another highlight:

As was photographing the wonderful reenactors:


Can’t forget Klotz. I had two opportunities to photograph this incredible time capsule:

And as always, I’m still working on editing photos from a few trips. Including a second trip to Klotz, Disney, Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, the Strasburg Railroad and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Hopefully I’ll get those posted soon.

Happy New Year!

Through The Lens 153 – Maroon Bells Twilight

Maroon Bells at twilight from my 2016 trip to Colorado.  I really like the stars that appear around the clouds in this one.

Happy Friday!

Through The Lens 152 – Leatherbark Creek Autumn

Leatherbark Creek

Some fall color along the Leatherbark Creek from the 2015 edition of the Cass Photography Workshop.  Hopefully we’ll get to do this again some day.

Happy Friday!

Through The Lens 151 – Abrams Falls Autumn

Abrams Falls - Autumn

Fall color at Abrams Falls in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  I took this one on a trip a couple years ago.  I hope to get back there in the next couple of years.

Happy Friday!

Through The Lens 150 – Happy Halloween

Since its almost Halloween, I thought I would share one of my favorite photos of the Haunted Mansion Gravediggers.

Happy Halloween!

Through The Lens 149 – Keys

Keys

I was exploring the French Village at Mid Atlantic Air Museum’s WWII Weekend this past June and stumbled upon this little vignette.  With nice lighting, I had to stop and make a photo.

Happy Friday!

Through The Lens 148 – Bombardier

One of the shots from the photo shoot with Doc that I was invited to participate in back in June.  This was a challenging shot to get, involving carefully holding the camera in the air at the top of a monopod and a lot of guesswork on composition.  The unique angle, featuring the bombardier through the window of the B-29 was worth the effort.

More from this shoot on Tuesday.

Happy Friday!

Through The Lens 146 – Hazlett’s Battery Sunset

Sunset at Hazlett’s Battery on Little Round Top, Gettysburg, PA.

Happy Friday!

Through The Lens 145 – Tractor Pull

The antique tractor pull was one of my favorite events at the fair and provided lots of panning practice over the years.  Sadly, they dropped this event a few years back.

Happy Friday!

Through The Lens 144 – Fair Food

Fair Food

I haven’t photographed the Frederick Fair in a couple of years, and the weather may not cooperate this year, so we’ll dig into the archives for one of my favorites from years past.  I was walking back to my car after photographing the midway at night and this food vendor caught my eye. Thought it would look nice in black and white.
