Image of the Day: Wappingers Cemetery

Cemeteries have great trees, so when I'm looking for trees I cruise cemeteries.  The one in the village of Wappingers Falls is lovingly landscaped, overlooking Wappingers Creek.  I took this photo with my iPhone while there was snow on the ground and fog in the air.

What I learned this Weekend

View from Peekskill Train Station of the Hudson River
Took a wonderful class at the International Center of Photography this weekend -- iPhone Artistry, taught by Dan Burkholder.  So this photo was taken by my iPhone on my way in to NYC Sunday morning, and it was processed with various iPhone photography apps.  I learned so many cool things -- more to come!

Image of the Day: Land Fur

The Aboretum in Madison, Wisconsin
What I like about this photo is the softness of the weed rows against the snow.  It looks like fur to me.   This is a color image -- it works also as a black/white photo, but i like the soft purple browns against the graphite.

Image of the Day: Snowbound in Wisconsin

The Arboretum in Madison, Wisconsin
As always, I went to Madison, Wisconsin for Christmas to visit my brother and his family.  As always, very very cold.  And this year it was again a winter wonderland -- they had had a 20-inch snowfall/blizzard a few days before I got there. and the landscape was gorgeous!  The natives are, of course, totally unappreciative of the beauty because they have to shovel snow and they will be living with it for months.  But it really looked extraordinary.  The snow came in almost horizontal so one side of a tree would be snow-covered and the other side bare.  Sweet.
