Sunday was too nice to stay inside, so I took Lumen out for a stroll around the Bushy Run Battlefield. I took the Nikon out just in case, and grabbed this pretty cool HDR of the sunlit sky.
As always, Lumen was his rambunctious self.
Took some wildflower shots while I was out. Didn’t see anything terribly profound, but this shot came out alright.
I found myself back in Sherman, New York this weekend. It’s getting to be a more frequent weekend destination for me as I get more and more deeply involved in the Great Blue Heron Music Festival.
This weekend, we went up for the rain day of their annual spring celebration, May Day. But in the typical fashion of Nathan and myself, we went up a day early to see if we could help out. This particular Saturday, the Rockcastles were finishing inoculation of their Shiitake mushroom logs (part of their other business, Green Heron Growers).
As I was traveling through Bedford returning from a Mother’s Day family affair, I wound up at the Flight 93 National Memorial. I had been there before, but there seemed to be a special kind of reverence here on Mother’s Day. Despite the frigid cold and windy day, I got the camera out to snap some photos:
Every year, the organizers of the Great Blue Heron Music Festival in southwestern New York hold their annual May Day party. The purpose is to be sort of a meet’n’greet for the volunteers of the festival. This year, myself, Nathan and DPM are volunteering for the festival, and were very excited about making some friends this weekend. Unfortunately, the forecast was ominous and we got the call from our friend and Queen Bee of Heron, Julie, that the May Day party would no longer be happening. But not wanting the weather to spoil a good opportunity, she invited us up for the day anyways. So before long, Nathan and I were in the Toyota heading north.
