I toured the Routes 28 and 28N loop this weekend. Stopped along the Hudson River to read the interpretive signage and look for photo opportunities. These bubbles were formed by the water rushing over rocks, so I tried to capture them "on film." Must've taken over 50 shots, and only about five came out without significant blurring. And look! There's a person in each bubble!
You just never know what you'll find in the woods. Is it a metal toilet? An old hardhat? Perhaps a funky hubcap?
Did you guess this is the inside of a wooden canoe? It was sitting outside a shop in Indian Lake, in the late afternoon sun, just begging to be photographed. I was happy to oblige.
Now, this is what kind of quality close-up (no cropping) you can get with a good macro lens. Yes, I bit the bullet and bought one...the urge was just too strong. But, oh, what a difference it makes! And it would be even sharper if I'd used the tripod. Ditto for the following photos.
