Landis Farm Museum

I really enjoy having and looking at a nice simple clean image. I went out to Landis Farm today hoping to capturing a fall image of a farm house I shot this past winter but most of the leaves one the trees had alread fallen down. Also I was hoping to get some late afternoon shadows which really weren't all the lived up to, but what caught my eye was the color here between the hut and the leaves. I shot this in HDR but kept closer to a single shot as much as possible. Hope you enjoy.

Covered Bridge

The other afternoon my wife and I took a visit to County Park. The leafs are just about peak. I've always have been trying to get a good shot in different seasons of this bridge. I think this 6 shot HDR will work. Hope you enjoy.

Condrus State Park

You might want to call this the end of summer. The other day I was shooting a sunset. The one thing I really wanted out of the whole thing was a reflection shot. With the wind and lack of clouds using the lake was almost out of the question. But keeping your eye open for things laying around the area that can lead to a more creative shot is very rewarding. Hope you enjoy.

How do you photograph a sunset? Now what makes a good sunset shoot is clouds for the different colored light. And calm waters for reflection. But sometimes mother nature doesn't always work out the way we want it too. Today I went out to a new location in York county. Obviously by the shot here I didn't have calm waters and no clouds. I'm still working on a few shots. Because one other thing I forgot to mention is the use of things around the area that enhance the shot. Which I did have. Hope you enjoy

Peaceful Stream

The best part of this weather we've been having is the water level's in these small streams. This is another image from Saturday's shoot. I really felt the urge to share just because of how the stream leads the eye. Also the mix of tree's with colored leaves worked well too. I used a feathered edge for effect. Hope you enjoy.

Tucquain Glen

This morning I got together with Ed Heaton for a little creek shooting at Tucquain Glen. Now with all of the bad misty/rainy weather that we've been having it is actually a perfect time to be out. The lighting is soft and diffused. Small creeks have plenty of water and color is a bit more saturated. It actually was a good morning and I think we both came out satisfied with the results. Hope you enjoy.

The Overlook

Well as you can see we're still a couple of weeks away from peak fall foilage in Lancaster County. But patchyness has started to emerge. I was scouting out areas in the southern part of the County for potential peak shots. Looks like this one could warrent a second look. Hope you enjoy.

Fall Foilage Abstract

This past afternoon my wife & I got together with my mom, sister and her kids. No offense to my family but usually I prefer to be by myself. But I won't resist taking my four year old nephew around. Here I used William Neil's abstract technique that friend & fellow photographer Ed Heaton helped me with. Hope you enjoy.

Country Sunset

This is down the road from the spot where I took the "Cornfield Sunrise." I was actually out scouting a spot for a sunrise when I decided to shoot this one. The most important part in this is the way I have the road and fence positioned to lead to the sunset. I don't think I would have shot it without them being there. Hope you enjoy.
