South American cloudscape..

As winter creeps up and change is on the horizon, I am remembering spring from Argentina and Chile… where the autumn colors were in full bloom. For the next few posts a series of photos from South of the Equator…

…a fall evening on the lake…

Still love sunsets! That will always be one of my most loved times of day!
And because this summer (and fall) have been full of sunsets that I didn’t post photos of (or didn’t even take photos of because… Gasp…. I didn’t feel like taking out my camera) here is one beautiful one from this past fall…

One good thing to look forward to as we approach winter is all the upcoming (although we all know it is actually here!), dramatic and breath-taking winter sunsets!
And I promise I will post them :)!

…Fall in upstate!…

We are so lucky to be able to get out and enjoy nature outside the city (although there are plenty of outdoorphins to enjoy within the city too) as much as we do! Thankfully, in part, to all the wonderful friends we have in upstate New York!
Two of our upstate friends tied the knot this past fall on Brant Lake on a beautiful weekend! Here’s a collection of fall photos from their wedding weekend….

Fall at the lake…

So the LONG hiatus of no outdoorphins has come to an end!

I am back… (and married)! Now that the overwhelming project of planning my wedding is D-O-N-E I can get back to more important things…. Like posting all the photos that I have acquired in the last few months!
Although I will be the first to admit I was an AWFUL photographer this past summer and fall (I blame bride brain).

However I was able to capture a few shots from our Lakeside wedding cottage the Friday before our wedding; the calm before the storm (… no literally it rained… c’est la vie… I still got married :)…


… the light changed so quickly as the sun began to rise…

…Albany, NY skyline…

So I have to apologize.. my blogging has been slacking. But not for a lack of photographs! I have plenty… but trying to grab a free moment at the computer during the hectic holiday season is nearly impossible!
… I will do better :-)…
Here are 2 shots… one is the natural shot of the Albany skyline…

It's beautiful on its own!

…and then I had a little fun playing around with the skyline sunset in Photoshop…

Enhanced...

… My favorite part is how the window light shines through…

Some more autumn leaves…

As I mentioned fall leaves are some of my favorite things to photograph…

and because its so cold out… here’s a little more fall leaves :)…

Central Park Pond on an Autumn day

Hiking is something that I have always loved but now living in New York City it takes on an element of necessity … to keep my sanity for one! 🙂

There’s something indescribable about being surrounded by quiet and nature that makes you feel completely connected to everything and yet around nothing…

With Fall comes Thanksgiving… I just like this photo:)
