Night Sky

This was my first attempt at the night sky. I took an awesome nighttime workshop with Mark Bowie thru the Adirondack Photography Institute and he led us to a pond and we photographed from 9-12 midnight.

I got lucky and had my camera pointed towards the north star and got the beginnings of some star trails in this 10 minute exposure.

Blue hour before sunrise

This image was taken in the hours before sunrise, the blue hour. The water was so still, the warm colors of the boat house contrasting against the cool colors of the water, the fog and the dock leading to the boat house just seemed perfect to me. I am not a morning person, but finding and capturing scenes like this makes getting up early worthwhile. This was taken on Mirror Lake in Lake Placid.
