Macro Monday at Solebury Orchards

A little over a week ago we stumbled across this orchid. The array of flowers & produce is amazing.

Chasing the Light at the Jersey Shore

Last week we did our annual family vacation in Cape May, NJ. The weather was more than cooperative and it was fun spending time with the family. We typically plan one evening at the boardwalk in Wildwood. Unbeknownst to most of the group, I wanted to make an effort to catch the “Golden hour” and the “Blue hour” and, if at all possible, be on the ferris wheel at that time. As luck (and a little bit of planning) had it, I was able to pull it off. All of the images were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M10 & the 14-42mm lens.

The Color of Lavender

Last weekend I traveled to place called Carousel Lavender Farm. During the course of the shoot, you couldn’t help but be hypnotized by the aroma and the sights.  For the macro shots, I used the Olympus micro fourthirds  60mm f2.8 lens. It is a brilliant piece of equipment. All images were taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1.

World War II Weekend – Behind Enemy Lines (post 4 of 4)

Last month, The Reading Airport hosted the 24th annual World War II Weekend. It was presented by the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum of Reading, PA. There were all types of WWII aircraft, vehicles, military personnel and reenactments throughout the weekend. There had to be several thousand attendees. This, of course, creates all types of challenges as a photographer. However, I think I was able to do a reasonably decent job of keeping the spectators out of the images. I decided I would break this post into four series [The Aircraft, The Americans (one & two) and Behind Enemy Lines]. Enjoy!

4th of July Rain Hike

I debated with my self this morning. It was raining – stay inside or brave the elements. I made the decision to grab the Olympus TG-850 and head outside. I wasn’t disapointed.
