Vanderpool, Texas (HDR)


On my drive to Lost Maples to catch some Autumn color last year I passed this river with beautiful red leaves. I pulled over and grabbed this shot. After processing, I thought it lacked a little something…thanks to photoshop –
1) Added a new sky + motion blur
2) Motion blur to river (masked and touched up edges of river)
A fun fall color HDR!

Clinton, NJ – Red Mill (HDR)

From the lovely little town of Clinton, NJ this shot is of the Red Mill.  A famous location to be photographed in New Jersey.  You can find this shot in many photos, painting, calendars…all over!  I grew up only 20 minutes from here and actually never visited until recently!  There is a cute little bridge that overlooks the mill and is great for setting up your shot.  Just over the bridge is a little shopping are with restaurants that overlook the river.   I was lucky to catch it in fall, but I would enjoy seeing this shot with some snowfall!  I bet it would be wonderful!   Its cold in Texas these days..hope its not too bad for you in your neck of the woods!  Enjoy!

Long Valley, New Jersey – The Colors of Autumn (HDR)

I was in New Jersey this past week and the peak fall colors had just passed, but some trees were still bright and colorful.  I was visiting some customers and stopped by Hacklebarney State Park in Long Valley, NJ during my lunch break.  I had not been there since I was in High School…so a trip down memory lane.  I had forgotten how wonderful this place is.  I was hoping to get some fall color shots and was walking down a path and this amazing view was ahead of me.  An instant favorite!  It is now my screensaver on my computer and my IPad.  If you want this version as well…click on IPad Screensaver and you can get it for $0.25! A bargin!  =)   I will update and add lots of new screensavers for IPad’s in the next week.  Look for my post.  Enjoy the fall season!
