A Walkabout, Cruiseabout and a Driveabout in the Fall

   Hello again, I was just upstate NY in the fall at Bear Mt. and also at a park called Minnewaska, one of my favorite hikes, then back to the Jersey Shore.
   Lets start at Bear Mt Lake where there is an easy trail around the perimeter, with plenty of photo ops.

Bear Mt Lake

Sometimes it’s strange things you see in a photo

The hike around the Lake is almost finished, one more look

Bear Mt Lake

   You ask, How did I get to Bear Mt. A cruise up the Hudson from Manhatten. I will spare you the photos of NY skyline, The Intrepid and the GW Bridge but how many of you know of the lighthouse under the bridge.

Little Red Lighthouse

One of the advantages of a different perspective.

Moving up the river are the Palisades first in Jersey than up a little further in New York. At the base of the Palisades:

   Now we are approaching Bear Mt With the Elk overlooking the Bear Mt Bridge

Looking

Oh one photo on the ride back you just have to look at the waves

Kids will be Kids

         OK lets move west to Minnewaska Lake on a different day and a car ride to take a 5hr or so hike around the Lake and area.

   Just around the corner is the entrance to Minniwaska Lake

  While we are still looking down

     Don’t look down for to long you might miss the sign

Gertrude's Nose

 This was the weather that day with no rain, looking over the Hudson Valley

There I go looking down again

Moss

   You just can’t look down for to long, it could get quite dangerous if you don’t pay attention and walk off the cliffs

Lone Pine

Another look at the valley

   Since this is a photography blog how about some more photos of moss

   The hike is over and on the way back to the car this scene just has to be photographed

Minniwaska Bridge

   Now that were back to NJ lets take a drive around Ocean Township and then down to the Shore. This year the colors are vibrant, very little if any photoshop.

      One thing great about the digital world is the diversity and instant results of changing settings. I shoot with a Canon 40D and I am the kind of person that likes to know everything the camera can do so I can pick and choose my shots, in the next shot wide open very slow on a tri pod.

It's a Mystery

      Little bridges tucked away very indescriminate yet with alot of impact

      Moving along seeing trees with such magnificent color they just take your breath away, soon regain your composure and take a photograph. The next shot was the row of evergreen trees with this maple in full glory

   Talking about a tree in full glory

Maple

       One more beautiful Maple, this time a full mature Cutleaf showing off.  Although the Maple is the main subject, the eye is drawn upward with the Blue Spruce then to the right with the color in the background, the an overall look with the house and how it brings comfort and solice to your heart.

Home Sweet Home

      Down the road just a bit

Down the Road

   Had to put some Oil to this one

   The next day I wake up early, very early and make my way to the shore, it’s a nice, brisk morning standing on the boardwalk waiting for the sun to rise, I’m looking around and there seems to be nice cloud cover, calm and peaceful, I think to myself, self this morning has good potential, wait and see

Jersey Shore Sunrise

   There, can’t get any better, so now I’m feeling real good and since I’m out and about there is a great breakfast place right down the road, and more photographs

   Have to get a Rose in here

      Lunch came and went, then dinner. I wonder what could be framed into this

Potential

      The sky cleared the temurature is surprisingly mild, the sun has just set behind me,
