30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 29

The carriage road around Witch Hole Pond is a nice 3+ mile loop that I enjoy walking in the early evening.  I headed out with both my Nikon camera and my Canon since I was unsure what to expect.  I wanted all my options. … Continue Reading “30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 29”

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 28

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 23

I had two objectives today after work.  I wanted to find the horse statue a camper mentioned stumbling upon when taking a wrong turn on a trail, and I needed to try and get a photograph of the full moon.  Although technically the moon… Continue Reading “30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 23”
