Boston Skyline March 19, 2011 Super Moon Night

Boston Skyline

While cleaning up bring to make more room on my Macbook for the upcoming photo tour and workshop to India next week I came across this image.  This was captured about a year ago on the night of the “super moon”.  I am looking forward to doing a lot of night photography and time lapse images on this trip.  In particular the Taj Mahal – we will be in Agra the night after the full moon but hopefully will get some good opportunities.

Mother and Child – Cape Cod Workshop

Going through some of the images from the final day of the workshop I came across this one from Coast Guard beach.  Shot during the midday hours in contrasty light the monochromatic treatment appealed to me.  I took it one step further and applied the antique plate effect from NIK Silver Efex Pro.

Cape Cod – Sunday Sept. 11

Got back late Saturday afternoon after doing my Macro and Close-up presentation in New York but had to do some shooting so decided to go and spend some time at the Cape.  The clouds were not looking good all afternoon but decided to take a chance and stayed for sunset.  This is the result – I guess just like the rest of New England the Cape is unpredictable.

Cedar Waxwing

Cedar Waxwing
500 mm, f5.6, 1/320 at ISO 400

Had planned to go down to Cape Cod today but the weather forecast was not the best so went looking for Waxwings instead.  One from this morning.   Also want to clear a misconception that a few fellow photographers had – the male and female have the same markings – the red tips do not indicate a male bird.

Next stop, Buttonwood Farm in Griswold, CT.  The heat was fairy intense but not as bad as on Friday.  Regret we did not stay for sunset which turned out to be quite good,  may go back this weekend or sooner as the second field was only in bud.

Spring seems to be in the air.  The azaleas are blooming and the maple leaves are emerging.  With the slight rain last night the ornamental maple looked gorgeous this morning. This is a stacked macro of a set of leaves unfurling.
