This is one of the abandoned WWII Observation Towers in Cape Henlopen State Park in Delaware.  There are several of them in the park; this is the only one that is open to visitors for climbing to the top.
I shot with my my iPhone5, then did some post processing in Aperture.

Nothing really special about this shot….I just like it.  Shot near Poodle Beach in Rehoboth, DE with my iPhone5, then did some post processing in Aperture.  I like the bird (seagull ?) on the post in the distance.

Here’s another from my recent visit to Cape Henlopen State Park to view the abandoned WWII Observation Towers.  I shot this from the Gordon’s Pond trail, then rendered the image as a painting in Topaz Simplify

This weekend I had the opportunity to visit Prospect Mountain near Lake George Village in upstate New York.  The weather was really quite overcast, but there was still quite good visibility (they say that, on a clear day, you can see for 100 miles.)  I shot this with my iPhone5, then did some editing in Topaz Adjust.  I like the clouds in this, but overall I’m not super excited by it.   It’s too….I dunno….blue?  I also took a bunch of shots with the Canon 7D, which I will be processing and editing in the next few days.  Stay tuned for more.

I don’t know what it is about this photo….its just a silly picture of a fence.  But for some reason I’m drawn to it.
This is from yesterday’s bike ride in Cape Henlopen State Park.  I shot this with the Canon 7D, then did some post-processing in Aperture 3 and Topaz Adjust 5.

Here’s another perspective of the “Christmas in July” site at the West Virginia campground.  Apparently the owner is an Ohio State fan!

Here’s another view of yesterday’s thorny flower on the weed growing under the deck at the campground.

I found this weed growing under the deck at the West Virginia campground this weekend.  It’s just a thorny weed, but with a nice colorful blossom on top.  
I shot this with the iPhone 5 with the Olloclip Macro lens attachment.  I then did some post-processing in Snapseed on the iPad, then rendered the finished product in ToonCamera.  
After i shot this, I noticed the ant in the frame.  Not to get all philosophical, but I suppose the lesson is that what looks like thorns to us looks like a series of small trees to the ant.  It’s all about the point of view!

A friend recently purchased an ocean-front condo in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.  This is the view from balcony, shot with my iPhone5.

This past weekend was “Christmas in July” at the West Virginia campground.  This is one of the more elaborately decorated sites (not mine!)  I shot this with the Canon G12 (I left the 7D at home).  I had the G12 on a tripod, ISO100, f/8, 6.0s
