This movie requires Flash Player 9

For our last shoot, we headed to the killer Albany Covered Bridge. What a beautiful location and especially in fall. Just look, here’s just one of the hundreds of trees at the location. It is simply a inspiring place.

And then there is the story of this bridge any my photography. I don’t have a good and not even close great photo of a covered bridge in fall color. And I still don’t! SO, we get to this locale and even though I scouted it out a week ago, with the increased fall color and the clouds overhead at the time, I decided to take a different tack on the bridge. So I went across the bridge and bushed whacked up the river to the spot I thought would be cool. I get there, not so hot. I put on a polarizer, still not so hot. I added a split great; not getting any better. I did a HDR with all of this and that’s when I knew I wasn’t going to get the photo. What you see here is the finishing of just one of the images of the HDR series just to demonstrate that just because you’re in a great location, the stars don’t always align in your favor.

This was a super DLWS with some of the nicest folks. We want to thank our wonderful staff, great participants, the folks of NH who were such grand hosts to a marvelous week. Thanks! And where next? I’m writing this from FL where we’ll be with our NAPP family for a few days working on new projects. As they say, no rest for the wicked and I’m as bad as they get!
