Tank Hollow (foggy) Trail

This past weekend I went to a new hiking location called Tank Hollow. For those of you living in the NE, you may recall this entire part of the country was covered in heavy fog most of the weekend. I thought it would be a good opportunity to try out my trusty water resistant Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII. I got soaked, the camera got soaked and we both lived to tell about it.

Hopewell Furnace

Hopewell Furnace is a restored iron plantation built in 1771 and is a national historic site located in Berks County, PA. I have always been intrigued by this place. As a young boy, I remember my parents taking me here. I have photographed this place before, but never in the middle of winter. The day was very cold and filled with periodic rain, sleet & snow. Not the ideal conditions for a photoshoot, except that it is great for not having many people in your pictures. All of the images were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II.

Fly Like an Eagle

I made a quick morning run down to the Conowingo Dam on the lower Susquehanna River. I wanted to try out the new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II with the M.Zuiko ED 300mm f4.0 IS PRO paired with the 1.4x Teleconverter MC-14. This gives me the focal equivalent of 840mm. All of the images were shot handheld at a shutter speed between 1/1250 and 1/1600 sec. and ISO’s of 200 to 2500. The camera outperformed all of my expectations.

Graffiti Warehouse

On New Year’s Eve day my nephew, Matt (a new Olympus shooter) turned me on to a place he had visited several times that includes some amazing artistic graffiti. It is an abandoned warehouse that skateboarders frequent. Here are a few shots from the day.
