NYBG B and W

I spent a day in the New York Botanical Garden, Bronx, NY last weekend with the Sierra Photo NY group. We split up and went our own way and met up for lunch and dinner.

This first post in the series of four posts are photographs I either unsaturated parts of or made completely black and white.

High Line Fall

I think we all love the colors of Autumn. Taken on the High Line Park in New York with my Samsung Note 10+. Marc’s captured (two at the end) his with a Samsung Galaxy 10+. These cell phone cameras keep getting better and better. I shot most of mine in RAW which gives more data in the lights to play with in Lightroom.

Fahnestock Flora

I love moss and Lichen. There was plenty there to photograph. Autumn leaves and rushing streams too. I was luck to catch a kinglet with a large grub. I didn’t have me long lens so missed photographing the others I saw.

Fahnestock Scenery

A wonderful trip to Fahnsetock State Park with Sierra Photo NYC. I took so many pictures that I liked that it was hard to choose which ones to post.

It was a cloudy day which made photography a challenge. I wanted to capture the gloomy mood and bring out the colors.

Sam’s Point 1 of 2

I went on a trip to Sam’s Point area in Minnewaska State Park, Cragsmoor, New York in the Shawangunk Mountains with a small group of Sierra Photo NYC members on October 10, 2019.

The weather was delightful and I enjoyed the trip very much. The Ice Caves are spectacular, but the trail is full of stairs and ladders up and downs and requires a lot of exertion.

The light entering into the crevices of the sedimentary conglomerate rocks makes some dramatic photographs.
