During our walk at the Plainsboro Preserve, we noticed this tree with a cloud formation right above it. It looked like a column of smoke coming from the top of the tree. For some reason it just amused me. The feature image was 1 shot, while the one below is a two image panorama.

This is from a previous visit to the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Cambridge Maryland. We like photographing there for Bald Eagles and landscapes. Being close to the coast, you can get some amazing vibrant colors at sunrise and sunset. This is a little after sunrise and the clouds were fantastic. Shot multiple areas along the Wildlife Drive and this is one in a series. (Once I have a chance to get to the others!)

A series of Sunrise and Sunsets from along the Wildlife Drive at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge outside of Cambridge Maryland. The Featured image is along the start of the Wildlife Drive at sunrise.

Usually we go to Blackwater NWR (Maryland) for photographing Eagles, Ospreys and other Birds & Wildlife. Or if we stay til dark, they have very colorful sunsets, being close to the coast. But lately I have been photographing more of the landscapes along the Wildlife Drive. Also gives some practice trying HDR techniques or Panoramas. The eagle population is still growing as many Eagles are returning to the Refuge for the Winter. Next I have to try views along the trails. Usually when I am on the trails I have long lenses with me to capture birds in the trees. At this time of year the Ospreys have left and the Eagles are gaining numbers as many come down from Canada.
The featured image was a 5 shot panorama, over lapping images, shot at 24mm. The next image is a 6 image HDR bracketed panorama image assembled in Photoshop. 3 bracketed exposures for each of the 2 sections, combined in Photoshop. Still trying to get use to CC 2017 Photoshop, from my usual CS6 workflow.

Some different Fall Landscapes instead of the usual Fall leaves. I liked the dried grasses against the Fall Colors.

I am still going through my images from our day at the Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge. Lots of files to adjust and work on, so I am a little behind. Here are a few more.

We went to the Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge in Delaware to see what we could find. Wildlife was usually far in the distance, but the landscapes were great. We still had some Fall color, but the clouds really added to the images. It was a fun day with lots of opportunities for great images.
