As an antidote to all the awful flood pictures that we’ve been inundated with, here are my last few miscellaneous pictures from our vacation in the Catskills…

Here are a few more- some macro shots of the local flora, some of the amazing cloud inversion there was one morning, and my favorite shot of the week…

I’ve started working through some of the pics I took while we were in the Catskills, here are the first few…

…up at the clearing. The sun is trying to break through, but I’m not sure if it will make it. I think it’s a day for some shopping, and some sitting on the porch and reading 😏

Cloud inversion

Cloud inversion

So I went up the hill to the clearing this morning with the dogs as usual, and kicked myself because when I got there there was an almost perfect cloud inversion in the valley below (when the cloud fills the valley but is clear above). I did not have a camera with me, not even my cell phone as I had left it at the house with Jackie where there is wifi (there is no cell coverage here) in case Crisp called- today is the day a film crew from Apple TV is using the parking lot and the buildings back at the church and Crisp is in charge but I wanted someone to be available in case of questions.

So I walked briskly back to the cabin, collected my Sony camera and a tripod, and headed back up (this time with just Faith). When I got back to the top I thought I had missed it as the cloud had risen up to put the clearing in mist, but I did get this shot…

…however the cloud lowered down again and I was able to get what I hope will be some very nice shots. I shot bracketed exposures so they will have to wait until I get back to edit them properly (these are just simple RAW conversions on my Chromebook), but this gives you an idea 🙂
