Long Valley, NJ – Hacklebarney (HDR)


Summer is upon us and fall is just around the corner! That means cooler weather (depending on where you live), football and wonderful colors. This shot was from last fall at Hacklebarney State Park in Long Valley, NJ. Just a nice quiet late afternoon in the park. Hope you have some great summer vacation plans!

Long Valley, NJ – Hacklebarney Park (Infrared)

The art you can create with an Infrared Camera is endless!   I am always trying to find ways to produce different looking shots with my IR photos.  Thanks to some new unreal and awesome software I just downloaded…onOne Software’s Perfect PhotoSuite 5.5 …did I have a great weekend of processing photos!!  I will get a review complete later this week.  I want a little more time to play around.   The effect in the photo above was thanks to Photo Tools 2.6 (part of the suite).

The photo above is from Hacklebarney Park when I visited in October.  The leaves were in full fall bloom.  I posted an HDR shot of this a few months back. I like this IR version as well!
