Another Summer Gone

Another Summer Gone

Today is the first day of Fall. The Autumnal Equinox as they say. Another summer gone. 2013 is nearing it’s end. It has not been a particularly great year for me. Personally and/or in my photography endeavors. I have accomplished some things I had set goals for, others will need to be rescheduled and worked on more next summer. However, I do look forward to getting out for Fall foliage shooting this year. Last year I was still recovering...

Lone Kayak

Lone Kayak

I wish I could say that was me in that Lone Kayak out there. I have been wanting to get one for a long time and just cruise this lake a few times a week but haven’t been able to afford it .. yet. Someday. Today’s photo was taken last weekend when we were out working with the 10 stop ND filter. I had to get a few bracketed shots as well! I was all set up for this shot when the kayak coasted into it. It turned out to be a pretty good...
