We just returned from a long weekend at Laurel Hill State Park with a bunch of extended family. The camera made the trip of course and was brought out any chance I got. Thankfully, there was plenty to shoot.
With almost a foot of snow on the ground and the skies clearing up a bit, I headed out to Ohiopyle with a bag full of camera gear and a tripod. Nothing much to say about this, the beauty of it speaks for itself, much better in person obviously.
This weekend was spectacular for camping, cool at night and warm during the day with a nice breeze. All day the sun shone and the blue sky was dotted with just a few clouds. We spent both days outside running and playing and I even was able to frame a few shots. All in all, a wonderful weekend and a great first camping trip of the year.
Spring is finally here and the temperatures were doing a fine job of rising. Until the weekend of course, when the temps dropped over 20 degrees overnight and frosted the windshield of my car. I gathered up a backpack full of water, energy bars and camera gear and headed out anyway. Having all morning to myself, I decided to hike some trails at Ohiopyle that I haven’t been on before. It was a nice 7+ mile hike that let me scope out the trails and see if there was anything that would be bring me back later in the season for a closer look. The light was a bit harsh, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the foliage wasn’t quite blooming yet. Regardless, it was still a great time. Here are a few of the shots I managed.
