Catch up Day - Country Views

Ok, ya got me. I missed a day yesterday. Been very busy taking care of "Lefty" and helping her recuperate, and a day slipped away. So for your visual enjoyment, I'll post two shots today.

One is a horse farm in Gilford, at the top of Cotton Hill. I'd been visualizing it for awhile, and one morning when I woke up, the light just seemed right. So I hopped out of bed, grabbed my camera and drove up the road. There is a feeding shed that just seemed ripe for a shot. Beautiful fall morning with Belknap Mountain in the background.

Shot was taken with a wide angle lens on 11/1/10 at 6:30 am. Exposure: 1/5s; Aperture: f/18; ISO-100.

And the 2nd shot is at my father-in-law's sugar house (at Bolduc Farms) in Laconia. This sugar house is the longest continuously running one of its kind in the US. It has been operating since 1779. That's a whole lotta syrup. If you get a chance, stop by there in the spring and watch the Bolducs in action. They love to explain the process and serve their fresh syrup on pancakes. Mmmm.

Shot was taken with a wide angle lens on 11/14/10 8:12 am. Exposure: 1/32s; Aperture: f/5.7; ISO-160.

Ok, lunch time is over and I'm all caught up. Back to work now...
