Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park

My big vacation this year was in Wyoming.  To be more specific it was a week of Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park.  It was a great vacation.  The weather was nice, no rain, and there were lots of wild life.  I was looking forward to seeing Yellowstone but I we got there I realize that I preferred and had more fun in Grand Teton National park.  Here are some of the photographs, let me know what you think by leaving comments or questions.

Fall Foliage

Fall is my favorite season. I love it cause it starts to get cooler and love love the fall colors. I have been traveling up and down the east coast to photograph the fall season. I travelled as far North as Vermont and as far south as Washington DC. I didn’t plan it this way but it worked out that I was in Washington DC early October and I was in Vermont mid to late October. In between I stopped by my favorite area the Hudson Valley. So for this post I have for you photographs from Vermont. Enjoy and let me know what you think by leaving comments and questions.

Sony NEX-7

I bit the bullet and got Sony NEX-7 with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 and 16mm f/2.8. It’s a great camera, its compact with lots of customizable knobs, buttons and wheels. I also love that it has APS-C sensor with 1.5 crop factor. I also have a few gripes with the Sony NEX-7, the bracketing for one was much less to be desired and the low light performance could be better. With all that said I bought the Sony NEX-7 for more casual, family, and all around walking camera, it will not be replacing my Nikon system any time soon. Here are some HDR shots from the Sony NEX-7 using manual bracketing. Let me know what you guys think!

West Hurley Reservoir

I was in Hudson Valley area a couple of weeks ago. I was looking for a new place to photograph and a family friend just bought a house in West Hurley, New York. On the way to check out their country house we drove by this reservoir and I thought it was interesting. I went back the next day around sunset (of course) and took some photos. And here’s what I got. There’s a lot to discover in Hudson Valley and I’m looking forward to the fall colors. Enjoy the photos.

Mount Desert Island

I went back to my favorite National Park in the east coast this past May. Acadia National Park and the surrounding city did not disappoint photography wise. This time around I made sure that I took photos of different harbors in the Island. I didn’t spend much time on Cadillac Mountain like I did in the past. I wanted to photography Southwest Harbor, Bar Harbor and Bass Harbor. I was also trying a new piece of gear in this trip, I recently acquired Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8, this lens did not disappoint. It was sharp and the VR (vibration reduction) was awesome. I hope you enjoy these series of photos as much I enjoyed making them. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me or leave a comment. See you guys soon!
