New Jersey / New York state line hike

I went on a hike last weekend with some friends along the border of New Jersey and New York. It was interesting mostly for the numerous steep climbs/descents we had to make and the fact that much of the trail had turned into streams due to the excessive rains from previous days. Also, it was the first time that I got to give my Capture Camera Clip a good work out. Given all the scrabbling up and down rocks that we had to do, having my camera securely mounted to my backpack strap was incredibly helpful. It was instantly available anytime I wanted to take a photo, but completely out of my way when I didn't need it. Unfortunately, there weren't a lot of breathtaking sites to photograph on this trip, but I got a few fun panoramas out of the trip. Take a look here.

Last weekend upstate

We had the pleasure of being invited upstate to spend last weekend with some friends in Ghent, NY. Here are a some of my favorite shots from the weekend. (Some items of note: JR graffiti along the Bruckner Expressway, a Shaker community near Mt. Lebanon, and Kinderhook Farm.)

Photo shoot in the Hamptons and Montauk

I was lucky enough to go on a photo shoot last week to capture panoramics of desolate Hamptons beaches. It was great to get some of the sea air (and cooler temps) in the midst of all this heat we've been getting. Here are two of the panoramics and a few other shots from a Montauk beach that was suffering some serious erosion. (Watch for promos for a new TV show this fall that will feature one of the panoramas)
