Last weeks trip to the Catskills included Mountaintop Top Arboretum (north of Tanersville) and a short stop at the end of the day at Colgate Lake.

Bayard Cutting and

Last week Paula, Marc and I drove to the Bayard Cutting Arboretum. We had dinner after in at the Flounder Inn in Oakdale, Long Island. It took me a while to process these because I have been busy house hunting, etc.

Local Flora

I processed the Allium two ways to show that color creates a mood. I know the Ailanthus is considered to be a weed tree, but I love it. It shades us from the sun in our 3rd floor apartment.

Japanese Maple

There are lovely little Japanese Maple trees in the small front yards a few blocks away.

Taken with a Nikon D750 with an AF-S Micro Nikkor 105mm f2.8 G ED lens. I photographed with the intent of collection images for composites. I merged multiple images in Photoshop as layers and used masking to create these composites.
