The time is coming… Lens Question!

It’s almost time… It’s almost here.

4-0…. 

2015 is the year I approach I number in age which at one time seemed so very very far away! In honor of my birthday I set myself a goal a number of years ago, inspired by Cheryl Strayed’s book (and now movie) WILD. I will be hiking Mt. Washington in a one day trip before I turn that magical number. My fantastic husband has agreed to hike it with me! He has hiked it before but he   was just young Boy Scout then…  probably feels like a lifetime ago to him!

We’ve been there together before! We traveled the Auto Road on a motorcycle!

New Hampshire 2007

So… I am asking fellow photographers this question. What lens would you bring for this adventure… I am thinking of bringing my 24MM 2.8 and possibly my 18-135 but do I need others? Any advice is requested AND appreciated!

You Can Get there from here… Griswold Point

I had a fantastic last couple of weeks…

Including an amazing Mother’s Day where we got to spend a majority of the day as a family doing exactly what I had hoped we could do… Walking on a local beach at ULTRA low tide with my camera in hand! Which resulted in some shots I am very happy with and very sentimental towards!

One Photo … Two Ways

The way a photo is edited can do a lot to change the feel, mood and general view of a photo! All part of the creative process.

I often like to look at a photo I like two different ways… whether it be a simple edit or drastic differences!!

Below I am posting an image I captured today … created with two very different feels!

Which do you prefer?

Beneath the Rocky Exterior

Sometimes you need to look beyond the rocky exterior to see the beauty within. On a recent local hike up Lantern Hill my husband inadvertently kicked over a larger rock. I looked at it from afar and was wondering what the orange blobs on the bottom of the rock were. Upon closer inspection I discovered the beauty hiding underneath…

I think I am one lucky gal!

You gotta stop and appreciate the world beneath your feet… or boots in this case!
