Hickory Run State Park

Recently I ventured up to Hickory Run State Park. I have not been there in many years and was pleasantly surprised to see that has not changed much. I hiked along the Shades of Death Trail to see several amazing waterfalls. It was a beautiful spring morning which one enhanced my photographic opportunity. All images were taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII and paired with the M.Zuiko ED 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO. The first two images were shot utilizing the Olympus High Resolution mode which creates an 80 megapixel picture.

 

 

Later in the morning I hiked the Hawk Falls Trail to Hawk Falls.

Niagara Falls

As many of you know, I enjoy photographing waterfalls. But, I never photographed the infamous Niagara. Last year I had the opportunity to do so. I was also fortunate to arrange some shots from a helicopter. However, I wanted to schedule my visit during a time frame when it would be the least crowded. So I picked February, assuming it would be extremely cold. Luck would have it, that the temps reached into the 60 + degree Fahrenheit range. The good news was that the preceding weeks were all below freezing and there was still plenty of snow and ice around.  All of the images were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII. Be forewarned, if you view the video clips and you are susceptible to motion sickness, the second clip might cause you some discomfort.

Glen Onoko Falls

Last week I ventured up to the frozen Glen Onoko Falls in Carbon County, Pa. It was incredibly beautiful. But incredibly difficult. Once you went past the first set of falls, the trail turned into a sheet of ice. It would have been almost impossible had it not been for the boot chains I had.

Autumn’s Last Light

I shot these images a couple days ago (before our snowstorm) on a frosty morning in the Lehigh Parkway. I suspect these may be the last ones with color until next year. All images were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII and the M.Zuiko ED 12-100mm f4.0 PRO lens.

Pittsburgh Architecture

A few weeks ago I was invited, on behalf of Olympus, to be a featured speaker for the annual PSA conference held this year in Pittsburgh PA. I was also asked to lead a photo walk. I had not been to Pittsburgh for quite sometime. A favorite aspect of photography for me is architecture. I wasn’t sure what to expect here. I was throughly impressed. There were gems at every turn. I look forward to going back and spending more time with these architectural marvels. All images were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII. The first image was taken by using the “Live Composite” setting on my camera with 4 second intervals for approximately 4 minutes at f/13.

Franklin Hills Vineyard/InVision

A couple of weeks ago I lead a workshop to the Franklin Hills Vineyard on behalf of ArtsQuest for the InVision Photo Festival. We had near perfect conditions and a fantastic group of people. In addition to all of the great photo opportunities, we were able to sample some wonderful wine at the end of the day. All images are shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII.

Fall’s Final Finale 2017

Yesterday I hiked at Jacobsburg State Park in hopes of finding some final colors of the year. To my surprise, there were vibrant colors all over the place. Temperatures in the early morning hours were in the teens. But the sunshine made up for the chill in the air. In addition to the colors, there were ice formations, reflections, fungi and did I say sunshine! All of the following images were shot handheld with the Olympus OM-D E- M1 MkII paired with the M.Zuiko ED 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO.
