“Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer, and often the supreme disappointment.”  Ansel Adams 

 

 

 

 

Purple Carpet

As I was taking this picture, dark dark clouds were building on the horizon and I was 20 minutes from the car, so I was a little stressed (can't get the little guy wet!) and therefore hurried back. Now I carry a plastic bag with me for just such occasions.  This shot was taken at Five Rivers, which a nature reserve in New York State ... there's something in bloom all summer, a beautiful lake, lots of wild animals if you're patient, and wonderful sunsets (I don't do sunrises!).

Five rivers (nature reserve in New York)

This place is is open year round sunup to sundown and offers many possibilities for nice nature photos. The ones exhibited here are the result of a recent shooting session in August 2004. In this photo, the key element is the wooden bridge which blends nicely in the surroundings while still being the "center" of the picture.
