Trexler Park – Long Exposures

This past weekend I had it in my head that I wanted to accomplish some long exposures in an area by a beautiful foot bridge in Trexler Park, Allentown, PA. Having been there the week before, I had a pre-conceived plan of how I wanted to approach the composition. The only thing I needed was the cooperation of Mother Nature. She was a bit finicky at the start. But in the end, she came through for me. Note: All of the following images utilized a 10 stop neutral density filter and were taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII paired with the M.Zuiko ED 7-14mm f2.8 PRO.

ISO 64, 10mm, f/16, 60.0 secs.

This next image was taken using Olympus’ “Live Composite” mode. By using this approach, I am able to create a more painterly effect in the sky. This is accomplished by setting the camera to expose every 2 seconds. The total time on this image was 3 minutes.

ISO 200, 9mm, f/5.6, 180 secs

This final image is a shot of an old hunting cabin adjacent to the the foot bridge.

ISO 200, 10mm, f/10, 60.0 secs.

A Very Cold Day at Trexler Park

Yesterday was an extremely cold and snowy day in the Lehigh Valley. I decided I would take the Olympus TG-3 out for a hike in Trexler Park. The camera held up very well. That’s more than I can say for my fingers. I’m ready for spring!

Trexler Park

This past weekend Bo and I visited Trexler Park in Allentown, PA. My dad use to take me here as a kid & I haven’t been here since that time. The park was originally developed by industrialist and civil leader Harry Clay Trexler as a sanctuary for birds and other wildlife. The historic Spring House structure is located here which was built in 1741. The log cabin served as the summer home of the Trexler family.
