Great Smokey National Park

In January of this year, on our way home from celebrating Christmas with the family in Atlanta, we spent a few days in the Great Smokey National Park.  We rented a cabin called Over The Edge and these were the views from the back deck.

On one of our hikes, we saw a huge waterfall and here’s a part of that water fall and of course a shot of my assistant!

New York Botanical Garden Train Show

Last weekend I ventured out to the Bronx and visited New York Botanical Garden. It was my first time at this place and it was so nice that I’m planning to go back in the spring when the flowers are in bloom. There was a Holiday Train Show at the conservatory and was planning on photographing trains but as you can see I ended up photographing miniature NYC landmarks and buildings. The fascinating part of this show was all of the miniature buildings and bridges were made out of plants and plant products. I would suggest for you guys to go check it out but last weekend was the last weekend of the Holiday show. But you should check it out next year. Enjoy the photos!

Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City

I went out to photograph a NYC sunset a few weeks ago. I just love Long Island City and this park because right behind it is the New York City skyline. Long Island City was cute little neighborhood with many great restaurants, local bars and most of all it was only a few subway stops from Manhattan. Here are some of the photos I took that night. Enjoy!!!

Hi there!  I took a lot of photos during the Manhattanhendge event and i thought making a triptych is good way to show several photos at the same time.  In this series you can see the sun cross 42nd Street in NYC.  Enjoy!

Sunset at Mount Desert Island

Nikon D80, 1/30 sec at F/8, 70mm, ISO 400, Singh-Ray 3 Step Reverse ND Grad

Now lets revisit Acadia National Park. This was our third day of camping at MDI and this was taken at the top of Cadillac Mountain at sunset. It was an amazing day, we hiked the Cadillac Mountain South Ridge Trail which started from Blackwood campground, where we were camping, up to the top of Cadillac Mountain. It was about 6 to 7 mile hike round trip. The trail was just awesome, we were hiking at the ridge of the mountain and the views from the trail was just breath taking. One of many good things about Cadillac Mountain was you can hike up to the top or you can drive. After a full day of hiking I went back at sunset to take some photograph. The color of sky was just amazing that whole day. It had been raining the day before and I was so happy to have this wonderful day and the sunset did not disappoint. As you can see from the photo the sky was like a painter’s palette so colorful and beautiful. I did not have to do much post processing on this photo just white balance adjustment and a little bit of tone adjustment. It was just a perfect sunset. I hope you enjoy this photo as much as I did photographing it. Please leave or send comments questions.
