Day 7 (7 Jan 2012) Devil’s Hopyard State Park


Today I spend hiking and shooting a few hundred pics (just shy of 300!) at Devil’s Hopyard State Park in East Haddam, CT.  It’s a beautiful area with plenty of trails and a constantly changing scenery.  It was very hard to belive it was January in New England, as it was almost 50F!  This time last year it was 20F.  But it made for a perfect day to get outside and enjoy God’s creation!

This first pic was of water dripping from an icicle.  My next piece of camera gear will be a macro lens (or close up filter or extension tubes) so I can get real closeups.

55 mm, 1/50 sec, f/5/6, ISO 800 (water drop in icicle)

Nearing the end of the hike, I looked up from the ridge line as the sun was setting and saw this:
