Pine Meadow Brook

I got called into work this morning around seven for an issue with one of our servers.  I don't normally mind this, but I had been keeping an eye on what was brewing up to be perfect conditions for a landscape photographer.  It was a combination of super saturated greens of spring and a good rain last night so the streams would be running.  It was also quite foggy in the morning.  I was lucky enough to finish my work by eleven and it was still really overcast so the conditions were ideal.  I would have liked more fog when I went out, but I can't complain.  I got these photos all within a half mile of entering the trail near Pine Meadow Brook in Harriman State Park.  I am thrilled with the results.... Especially on a day when I did not think I'd be able to get out with my camera at all.

So keep you camera handy.... you never know when you will have a chance to get great photos and have to be ready.

Now it is time to prep my camera's and charge my batteries.... I am taking a photojournalism workshop hosted by Nick Zungoli and Chris Ramirez at the Hudson Bread Company... Check back Monday night for some of the images.  It should be a fun and educational day.

Keep Makin' Art!

I'm impressed by the way you always seem to get the exposure dead right for the best effects of water. I'll check back. Indeed, I will.

Thanks Dave... All I can say is practice makes perfect. I realized yesterday that I have been to photograph this park and mostly branches of this stream over thirty times. I should be able to make the water move by my own will at this point.
