Odd things attract me. Here are a few that I captured during the January 8th 2022 photowalk with Sierra Photo NYC.
I photographed these landscapes during the Sierra Photo NYC walk on January 8th 2022. I added skies to the last four to enhance the scenes.
On Saturday January 8th 2022 I joined up with the Sierra Photo NYC group for an afternoon photo shoot. We covered The Lake and part of the Ramble. The highlight for me was a very tame Wood Duck (Aix sponsa) who came so close I had to back off to photograph him. House Finches were at the feeders in the Ramble. Two more posts on this day to follow.
First snow this year at Hudson River Park in Greenwich Village. I was mystified by a string of circular ice cubes (next to last photo). I figured it out: The snow plow treads left them.
Our first snowfall of this winter in NYC was on January 7, 2022. I was excited to go out and photograph it. I antiqued the first one (we live in that building on the corner) and selectively altered saturation in the others. I toned down the color the strong color of the buildings to put the focus on the snow. Only two are straight B&W.
I did sky replacements for blown out white banded skies in these two images using Luminar AI and Photoshop. It is good to be careful to use skies that matches the lighting.
Two photographs from our trip to Bouquete, Panama in 2014.
While I tidy up my archives I paused to make this image.
Shawangunk Grasslands NWR in March of 2021. I reworked and enhanced these two photographs. I haven’t been able to get out to shoot more new ones. The background in the bluebird picture is not the original one.
