A Visit To New York

September 05, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

Labor Day weekend always brings another special holiday for me, my Mom's birthday. This year was a special milestone that I wanted to make sure to share in person with her, so off to New York I go for a quick weekend. She stays in Saratoga Springs for the summer, with my sister. My sister's place is a beautiful historical home that sits on the edge of the Graphite Range Community Forest, over 200 acres of forest for recreation like hiking, biking, skiing and more. We have enjoyed many hikes up in these woods, and have enjoyed the remnants of the old graphite mines that can still be seen today. It is such a gorgeous area to enjoy, I can say this photo really does not do it justice. If you want to learn more about this treasure, visit Saratoga PLAN.

About the photo: Shot with DJI Mini Pro drone, approximately 15 images, carefully stitched together for 3 different panoramic levels, then once again for a solid frame and hand blended to get proper exposure throughout. A painstaiking process that was worth the extra effort to maintain the detail in the shadows of the trees while holding the glowing vibrance of the setting sun.
