For some reason, I could not get my folks out of my mind today. After driving around for quite some time, I decided to pay a visit to their burial site. I still find it hard to see their names on the stone, even though mom has been gone since 2007 and dad since 2010. I miss them terribly, but know they are with the Lord, and that I will see them again some day.
With daylight in short supply, I was desperate tonight for a shot. The sun seemed to be setting a short line of the horizon ablaze in the distance. I pulled into a church parking lot on Allentown Road, and took this shot. The steam is from the Limerick nuclear power plant.
Having spent most of this holiday weekend working on some much needed painting at home, Daniel and I headed out to see what shots we could find around the Boyertown area. With no success, we headed home. As we passed through Frederick, PA, we could the sun setting over this long abandoned farm on Bog Road (route 73).
Okay, so I'm a sucker for sunsets! Leaving work at 4:30, the sky looked promising, so I drove around the Morwood area to see what "props" I could find. I found this lone old oak tree along Ruth Road, and it was framing the sun perfectly. This was the end result.
Daniel and I made a run up to Pennsburg, PA tonight, as we knew daylight savings time was fast approaching (this will limit our chances to catch sunsets after work). We drove by this beautiful maple tree overhanging the cemetery at St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church and couldn't resist.
You can start to see a little yellow creeping into the maples along Knight Road as it intersects the Green Lane Resevoir. It looks like fall will be early this year. Temperatures are supposed to be in the low 40's tonight!
I don;t know about sailors, but they sure are a photographers delight! Having worked a 12 hour day, I did not have much time to get afield tonight. I got home at 7:21, grabbed my gear and ran out. The red sky caught my attention over this once busy farm.
This is a farm over on North Charlotte Street in Gilbertsville, PA, that we have been wanting to shoot for almost 6 months. This shot is actually taken from the YMCA parking lot. This is also my first stab at HDR.
Today I had every intention of working on a photo of my wife's knick-knacks that she has on an old printing press drawer. An the way home though, my eyes were drawn to an incredible sky. I quickly grabbed my camera at home and ran down the road to catch what I could before it was gone. How can anyone deny there is a God after seeing the beauty of His creation?
This is the epitome of a grab shot! I was late getting out of work tonight, and with Sean's point and shoot camera in hand, I was roaming the countryside when the corner of my eye caught the sunlight through the slats in the barn. I literally stopped the Jeep and grabbed this before some cars came up on me. Taken on Mill Road in Lower Salford, PA.
On my way home from an appointment, I drove over the Green Lane Reservoir, in Red Hill, PA. This is a view from Knight Road, as it crosses the water. The sun looked stunning as it peaked through the clouds.
