Quite surprised to see a post here again yes, I am not dead…. but still more or less on baby break, I had not dived in 2 years. I had actually sold my entire underwater rig (Olympus XZ-1, Olympus housing and two Ikelite Strobes), so now this time, I not only had to get back to diving, I also had to learn to handle the new gear (after much surfing, I settled on the Sony RX100II, a Recsea housing and ONE Sea&Sea YS-D1 strobe. Unfortunately it shows in the results, which are sub-par, but I am posting them anyway (may the  merciless internet comments commence!)

August weather is variable. Due to the Hudson river, and likely the nearby mountains, there often is an eerie fog covering the adjacent fields.

As usual, feel free to download and share the images to use them for their intended purpose.

 

Shot with the Olympus OM-D EM-5 and Panasonic 14 mm f2.5 lens.

June is when Maine spring really starts! This year is really wet, which is deleterious for outdoor activities but great for our plants. Most of our garden flowers are in full bloom.

 

Hence this month’s image, taken with the OM-D and the 60 mm Macro lens in natural light. As  usual , feel free to use and share for its intended use, download large version by clicking the image.

I admit it is late March, so I am getting this one in just in time. Having still (mostly patchy and dirty) snow on the ground is not very conducive to landscape photography. With the time change we finally have sunrise at a decent time. The ice on the lakes here is almost completely melted, so here we go.

As usual, feel free to share this for its intended purpose as a desktop photo. Click to enlarge, right click to download after. Larger version after the break.
