Lake Crabtree, NC

without comments

It’s been a little while since I last posted.  I had a bit of change in my day job (the one that feeds my photography habit) that has really cut into my photography.  In addition, my daughter and sons have discovered MineCraft and have monopolized my computer.  However, I am back and the time off has allowed me to refocus, re-energize, and rediscover my love of black and white.  This is a one minute exposure of Lake Crabtree in Raleigh, NC from a recent trip that I took.  Hope you all enjoy!

Lake Wheeler

Family Time

I had a great time with my family on Sunday hiking both peaks of Mt. Joy in Valley Forge National Park.  It was a tough hike as the trail was snow and ice covered, making the trip a little slippery; as a result I think I’m going to invest in some crampons. For those of you who follow me, you know I spend a lot of time in the park.  I love the park and it’s a great asset for the Philadelphia metro area.

Lake Wheeler

I was lucky to get this shot of Lake Wheeler near Raleigh North Carolina recently.  With the rough weather this year and winter vortex, Raleigh was slammed with a lot of snow (a lot by southern standards) the day I arrived.  Many of the roads were closed, as was the park, because roads were covered with ice and snow.  Luckily, there was a great view of the lake close to the entrance, so I parked the car and walked around the gate and set up for this shot.
