This is an old photo— from 2007— and the fact that it’s only 56kb scares me a little— but I think it looks okay…? No major artifacting?
It’s Horseshoe Cove, on Sandy Hook (New Jersey)— which is all but inaccessible at the moment, and probably doesn’t look quite like this anymore. But it’s still a nice scene to think about.

I dunno, clouds are pretty sometimes.

Brrrrr! The weather’s gotten cold again.
(Which is not surprise, seeing as it’s February and all.)
(But the days are getting longer! It’ll be spring before you know it!)

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: ICE ON A SPILLWAY. Because this is a spillway, and that is ice.
(It’s a little creek near Seeley’s Pond, right on the tri-border of Berkeley Heights, Scotch Plains, and Watchung.)

I keep stumbling upon delightful little waterfalls on dreadfully overcast days.
Mostly it’s just been dreadfully overcast recently, but man, why’d I bother asking for a ND filter for Christmas if the weather never lets me try it out?
The photo above was just 2 seconds— I wanted to open up the aperture to try to force some depth of field, but I don’t think there was a lot of depth to be forced.
The photo below was a 10-second exposure. Ten whole seconds! I love that my camera can do that!
Also, note to self: there’s no point in having a functional tripod if you NEVER BRING IT WITH YOU. Silly Josy.

Sometimes all the right elements just come together, and all you can do is watch the results.

Ho hum, another everyday scene from the window of a train.
I love those fiery colors, though. Sunrises are really pretty nifty.

Another scene from the window of New Jersey Transit (circa 2011) (well not “circa,” this photo was in fact taken in 2011).

Well, for better or for worse, we made it through another year, didn’t we?
Here in the U.S., there was a hurricane, and an election, and some senseless killings, and some other stuff.
That sounds awfully negative! Help me out here, SOMETHING had to be good about this year, right?
What will you remember about 2012?

I wish these little falls had a name, but I don’t think they do.
They can be found on a tiny tributary of the Rahway River in the South Mountain Reservation, upstream of Hemlock Falls.
I like photographing waterfalls! They’re clichés, but there’s something to be said for the instant gratification you get when you capture a really cool photo. And it doesn’t always happen, because the light hardly ever cooperates with me and I STILL haven’t bought a ND filter. What’s your experience?
