Five Below

This past weekend I had it in my head that I wanted to photograph some waterfalls in the Pocono region of Pennsylvania. The main reason I wanted to do this at this time frame, was because it would probably be the coldest weekend of the entire year, which should make for some great imagery. In that regard, I think I was right on target. I reached out to fellow photog from the area, Eric Goins. He was kind enough to recommend Resica Falls. It is a Boy Scout camp I had been to many years ago with my sons. When I arrived, it was a balmy -5 degrees Fahrenheit. I wasn’t sure if my equipment or periodically exposed hands would endure. I’m happy to report, both performed very well.  I used the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II and the M.Zuiko ED 12-40mm f2.8 PRO with a 10 stop ND filter. After a couple of hours I knew I shouldn’t push the boundaries too much further. I headed out and treated myself to a much deserved hot chocolate. BTW – As I was leaving the temperature made it up to a warm +3 degrees. So, when someone says No-pain No-gain, I have an even better appreciation for that!

After the Storm

Last week we had a storm here in the North East of epic proportion. In our area we had in excess of 31 inches. We set a record snowfall, based on a 24 hour period. I wanted to get up to the Poconos to photograph in some areas I had been to in the past, but not in the winter months. I wasn’t sure what to expect since they received slightly less snow than we did. I was greeted with some beautiful weather and as such, some amazing landscapes. The following images were shot with long exposures to create the milky effect in the moving water. In all cases, the camera I used was the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II.

Autumn’s Peak

This past week I ventured up to the Poconos with the specific intent of capturing the fall colors. Mother Nature did not disappoint. The vibrancy of the colors this year were some of the best I have seen.
