Rainbow over the salt marsh

We had a little shower go through and create a rainbow over the salt marsh.

Something I’ve always admired

I’ve always admired this idyllic setting along 1A in Ipswich, Massachusetts. I’ve had my eye on this spot for over five years, but never had a reason to shoot it. That changed last Saturday morning. I was afraid that I would return from Europe to find that I missed the show. The sugar maples are doing very well this fall.

Sugar Maple Butter-butts

It has been a while since I’ve shot some birds. Sunday morning I was driving by the Oak Hill Cemetery and found this drop dead gorgeous sugar maple. I just had to shoot it. Cemeteries are great places for fall foliage. There is generally a good deal of space around the trees and there are no power lines in the picture.

There were a good number of Yellow-rumped Warblers flitting around the cemetery.

Arriving in Germany

Wow, on the 11th of October, we flew out of Boston at 10:30 PM and touched down in Germany at 11:00 AM local time on the 12th. I don’t sleep on airplanes, so for me it was like landing at 4:30 in the morning. We got settled into our hotel in Wetzlar and by 1:00 PM (with my body telling me that it was now 7:00 in the morning), we went out for a walk to find something to eat.

Hmmm… what’s on the menu?

A great, spicy Italian pasta dish and a glass of Piedmont Barbara. Hand made fresh pasta and meat sauce. Yah, body it may feel like 7:00 in the morning, but it is after high noon here. Stop whining and get into the local time zone!

Back in the US

I was away on business travel last week, visiting Germany and France. It was a very productive trip. Fortunately we had a little time to walk around. Here is a shot of me in Annecy, France.

On this trip, I decided to not take my big boy cameras. It’s a lot of bulk for business travel. However I did bring along my new LG G3 cellphone.

I’ve had it for about two weeks and we are becoming good friends. Above is a pretty difficult shot because it was taken as the sun was going down. Below is another tough shot of a bakery. There was funky light shining on the stonework and the bright lights from inside the shop. Tough shooting, but the cellphone did a good job. Let’s face it, the G3’s camera has demonstrated quite a dynamic range in this image.

Will the G3 replace my full frame D600? Only on business trips.
