Around the Bend

Around the Bend
Originally uploaded by UpstateNYPhototaker
Going through some photos from this past year, I decided I liked this shot better than I did before. I like how the stream bends out of the frame. I will certainly miss scenes like this when winter sets in up here in Upstate, NY. The November weather has been beautiful but it's coming soon. This stream is the Alplaus Kill in Charlton, NY. It is not too well known but is one of the prettier streams I have been on. Once upon a time it was loaded with eels. Alplaus or "Aalplatts" is a Dutch word for "Place of Eels." The Alplaus was also once home to many mills. The damming of the mills killed off all of the eels and modern technology killed off all of the mills. Such is life.Please check out the gallery below for more photos of the area. Please visit my Zenfolio Gallery if you would like to purchase any of what you see.

Misty Morning

Driving around this morning waiting for football to start, I came across this scene. It looked better in person. I lowered the clarity (softened) on this to try and convey the feeling of how misty and foggy it was. I love this combination of D90 & Sigma 10-20mm. This was taken up near Galway and Charlton, NY (Rural Saratoga County).

Galway Lake, NY in Saratoga County is one of my favorite places to photograph. I have been going to my families camp there for as long as I can remember and my family has been "camping" there for longer than most.

Please visit my Zenfolio page to check out my other photos from Galway Lake and the area. If you are interested you can purchase one of my photos at that site. I also have some postcards made up of the first image at the top of this blog. If you are interested please contact me.

The End of Autumn in Upstate, NY

These are likely my last Upstate NY Foliage pics that I will take for 2009. These were taken on a beautiful November day in Collins Park in Scotia, NY (Schenectady County). All of the above photos were taken with a Nikon D90 and Sigma 10-20mm lens.
