Where is Spring?

A few weeks ago I took a mini-vacation and went down to Florida for a few days. I made sure I packed my camera so I could snap some shots of warm weather… just in case spring doesn’t make it to the north east this year!

Promised Land State Park in the Fog

Took a ride out to Promised Land State Park today, there is still about 6-8 inches of snow left on the ground. With the air warming up, a light rain and the snow melting there was a thick fog rolling through the woods and around the lake. Here are a few photos taken around Conservation island. (Photos taken with Google Nexus 5)

At the End of the Rainbow

At the End of the Rainbow

 

When I got home from work today to begin my weekend, I took off my work boots and tossed them aside. When I looked down at them I saw the prism effect of sunset reflecting off the mirror in the hall. If I would have known the weekend was at the end of the rainbow I would have tried to find it sooner!

Mushrooms

Ironic that I hate mushrooms as a food, but find them fascinating to photograph! I just recieved my new Canon EF 40mm lens today and promptly fired up the camera and took some macro shots out in the back yard. With all the rain we had over the weekend, these mushrooms started popping up… figured they were a good starting place for my new lens. What do you think?

Lackawanna State Park

Yesterday I spent the day at the Lackawanna State Park. It wasn’t a particularly nice day, weather-wise, it rained a little and was mostly overcast but still… how bad can a day be when you spend it at a state park? For a little information about the park, I grabbed this right from the park web site:

The 1,445-acre Lackawanna State Park is in northeastern Pennsylvania, ten miles north of Scranton. The centerpiece of the park, the 198-acre Lackawanna Lake, is surrounded by picnic areas and multi-use trails winding through forest. Boating, camping, fishing, biking and swimming are popular recreation activities. From http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/findapark/lackawanna/ Continue reading

Back Yard Time Lapse

Since I got my Canon T3i I haven’t really been using my camera phone. While sitting out in the back yard the other day I was watching the clouds go by on the horizon and thought… that might look cool in time lapse. So, I pulled out my Samsung Galaxy Nexus, fired up the LapseIt Pro app and did a little time lapse photography… enjoy.

Weather is Blowing In

We’ve been lucky here in north east Pennsylvania… it’s been a beautiful 4 or 5 days, weather-wise. According to the weatherman, that’s about to change. It looks like rain for the next few days and these clouds rolling in seem to confirm that. Of course, clouds and old as dirt power poles do make some interesting photographs.

Beer Rings

Sitting outside and relaxing yesterday and decided to have a nice cold beer…. took a sip and got these odd rings in the neck of the bottle. Nothing special, just thought they were kind of cool looking. Taken with a friends iPhone 4S I borrowed for the picture.
