Atmospheric Magic In Promised Land State Park

In this video, I am going to take you to Promised Land State Park (PA), an area I have wanted to get to and am glad I finally did. When I arrived at the park the temperatures were 5 degrees F below zero. As I started my hike, the weather was no longer a factor because I was presented with an enchanted beautiful environment. There was a blanket of clouds that created a magical ethereal effect. Between the cold temperatures and the water flowing, the affect that was created was mystifying. I hope you enjoy my journey through the frigid temperatures and to see the result of what I will say is my favorite image to date in 2023. Please check out the video & let me know your thoughts:

OM System: OM-1

Lens: M.Zuiko ED 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO
