Sunrise On A Gazebo

Sunrise On A Gazebo

I took two different shots of the gazebo at Antietam. One from the front and this one. Considering the light I guess I didn’t take them that far apart. If there was a hell for photo editing this image is likely involved. I have edited this image at least 10 times. This is finally the version I settled on. Part of the problem was the light and how the camera metered it. It did some really funky things and I…

Road To Yonder

Road To Yonder

Title came from a comic I read as a kid. Guy walks up to two other guys and asks for directions. One of the men answers and and says ‘It’s yonder’. The man asking for direction leaves. The other man who didn’t talk then asks the man that gave directions if he actually knew where he sent the other man. He replied, ‘Always wondered where yonder is’. This isn’t the most fabulous image I ever took in my life. In…

Dawn Over Silent Cannon

Dawn Over Silent Cannon

This is another one from Antietam Battlefield. Was on the field near the visitor’s center with the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance and the sun just starting to rise. This is another example of an image that was meant for HDR that just wasn’t going to work. HDR just creates too many variables into the image that make it difficult to get a solid, finish image. There are little things that drive me nuts with objects not aligning. Weird…

Follow The Line To Where It Leads

Follow The Line To Where It Leads

I shot this at Antietam Battlefield last year. I was walking along one of the many roads that go through the park and saw this and figured why not take a photo. This image was meant for HDR but when I ran it through the initial conversion using Aurora it just looked awful. I did a quick edit just to see what I wasn’t happy with it at all. I just moved back to Lightroom and reverted to my usual…

The Back Road

The Back Road

I shot this while I was hiking around Antietam Battlefield. There was such a maze of roads and back roads throughout the park you never knew if you were on public land or private land. I’m sure the people who live there are used to people wandering around unsure. I was on the main trail just shooting down this road. I’ll be honest and say I’m not 100% sure about this image. It’s a bit bright. This is a byproduct…

The Bright Path

The Bright Path

I’ll be honest and say I was going to name this the shining path but I believe that is a Communist militant¬†organization from Peru so bright path it is! This was taken at Antietam National Battlefield along some path leading up toward the watch down your see in the distance. The sun was up by that point and it was a nice day out. When I was walking up the path I saw this and thought it would be a…

Where The Road Leads

Where The Road Leads

I shot this at Antietam Battlefield when I was crossing between the various areas in the park. There wasn’t much traffic so I was able to setup my tripod in the middle of the road and take the shot. I need to tell the story of trying to edit this image and why it may not be as good as I like it. I have a scratch disk in an external enclosure. It’s a 512gb SSD and I use it…

Burning The Morning Mist

Burning The Morning Mist

I shot this at the Antietam Battlefield which would not guess looking at the image. Just looks like a field on a farm. In fact you can see a barn in the image. The place crosses public and private land often so you never really knew what you were looking at when you took the image or even when you walked. It is fairly obvious I was in love with the light in this image. Since I shot this several…

Monumental Dawn

Monumental Dawn

I took this at Antietam National Battlefield when I was there last year doing a dawn shoot. The monument in this image is the New York State Monument to honor those from the state that fell. It’s one of the largest in the park and it’s near the visitors center so the one usually seen. I took the photo with the dawn coming up over the hill with the mountains in the background. Just liked the effect. Editing wise this…
