Apr 11

A decent sunset to end the day.
Sunset - April 11 - Potsdam, NY

The rest of today’s photos will have to wait. I need to go hit the couch after a long day.

Sunset to Moonrise

Feb 9

The sky looked promising from the hole I live in. The clouds were striking and there was plenty of color in the sky. So hoping to get a nice sunset photo I went down to the Morley bridge. Strange how a mile and a few minutes changes things and by the time I got on the bridge the color had faded.

Still it wasn’t a wasted trip since I did get a decent photo of the river. I next tried to get a different perspective on the old Morley mill by walking out on the river ice. That plan too was thwarted. The recent warm weather had foiled my plans. So all I was left with was a shot of the ice and snow from the river’s edge. It looks like I’ll have to wait for summer and wade the river before I can get a photo of the mill from the spot I was thinkinf of.

At least I got a pic of part of the mill. These old gears were removed long ago and left to rust.

Having got my photo fix of the day I went home to upload the photos on my computer. In the process I checked the weather and learned that the full moon was about to rise. Back out I went and just in time. I managed to get a couple of shots before the moon was hidden by the clouds.

Morley Sunsets

Dec 3

December 3, 2008, Sunset photos fresh from the camera.

Grasse River Sunset
From the bridge over the Grasse River in Morley, NY. The Smith dairy farm silos are just visible.

Zooming in the silos are more apparent.

Turkey Tree Sunset

I can’t be absolutely sure but I bet those are Turkeys in the tree. If you think they don’t hang out in trees you’d be wrong. Turkeys will roost in trees.

Silo Sunset

I wanted a better shot of the silos so drove down the road. Glad I did since I got goosed.


These are photos using the Normal Scenery – Landscape mode of my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28. They are the first shots I took at sunset and am happy with the results. I don’t know how well they’ll print out but for on-line use they’re better than good.
