Tag Archives: Extended Exposure

Fresh Powder

On Sunday the sun came out and we hopped in the car to see how much snow had fallen the day before. We took a drive up on the Tug Hill, stopped by Dry Hill and Sackets Harbor and found some other people who were as excited to get out in the snow as we were. What a beautiful way to end a year full of adventure. We can’t wait to see what 2013 brings!

Waterfall Hunting

Whitaker Park – Upstate New York.

On the heels of purchasing a brand new remote for my camera, Scott, Jackson and I went out in search of extended exposures. We had one miserably failed attempt at star trails before we decided to start with something a little easier, waterfalls. Our search for the elusive waterfall led us to Whitaker Park in the town of Martinsburg near Lowville, New York. After a short walk down a manicured trail we reached the water and began to walk downstream to find the falls. Lush green plant life dotted with wildflowers climbed the rock walls as the sound of rushing water roared in the background. We probably spent 3 hours playing with the settings on my camera, walking in the water and just enjoying our surroundings. This park is a must for any nature lover or camp enthusiast.

Campsites sit sporadically under the tall pine trees which makes entering this park like driving into a movie set.
