Pennsylvania Elk 2013

We visited Elk County in Pennsylvania the weekend of 9/13 with friends Gary and Kim Amatrudo. We saw a number of elk and we witnessed some pre-rut activity.  The bugling occurred in the morning and evening but it was pretty quiet during the day. 

This bull was quite vocal and seemed to be telling me to stay away from his lady friends.

Until next time

Adams Falls

I have been trying to get some good shots of falls at Ricketts Glen State Park this summer.  It has been difficult because when the light was good because of being cloudy the falls have been filled with people.  It was a pleasant surprise this morning as I was returning from Lock Haven to find teh parking lot at Ricketts empty!  I took the short hike down to Adams Falls and the nice full cloud cover we had this morning provided perfect lighting for doing teh falls without using neutral density filters.  

Shot with a D800 set at ISO200, f8, .6, _1 EC.  Shot live view with 2 second delay on tripod. 

Until Next Time
