  • After a weeks long bout of bronchitis and only 4 days til the Turkey Trot I decided to get out and run the waterfront. 20mph howling winds and no souls in sight made it a challenge but I banged out 4 glorious miles. At the end of a strong headwind I was greeted by this sculpture. #griffis #outerharborbuffalo #buffaloturkeytrot

Part II ... Now there was a brave hunter named Jeannod, who lived in a village of Uri. In his pursuit of the chamois, this stalwart youth was not afraid to follow this agile animal over the most dizzy precipices and far up beyond the snow line. He did not hesitate to climb the most perpendicular mountain walls, to get a good shot. Hence, he was often compelled to spend a night amid the cliffs and glaciers. 
One evening, while on a hunting expedition, Jeannod caught sight of Silver Wreath as she 
was flitting on her gauzy wings around a peak. At once, he fell in love with her. Happily for him, she was, after several meetings, enamored of Jeannod, and he became her favorite ... ... Silver Wreath soon found out what Jeannod liked most to eat, for while she was a fairy, he was a mortal and had a stomach, and always a lively appetite. He was very particular and rather fussy about the kind of cheese he ate, and he always bought the best that could be found in the market. In fact, he would often walk many miles and spend his last coin to get a cheese of an especially good brand or flavor, no matter at what price. 
The fairy soon found this out about her lover’s taste, and when Jeannod was hungry after climbing the steep rocks, she fed him on a most delicious kind of cheese. He declared no mortal man or woman could make any equal to it, whether in taste, or in nourishment, or in flavor.
-Excerpt from Griffis’ The Alpine Hunter and His Fairy Guardian

  • Milky Way over Griffis
This is my first attempt at Milky Way photography, so I'm still figuring out how to process this type of image. This an image made in the middle of the night during the New Moon (August 2nd). It was a pretty cool experience when I wasn't creeping out over the various wildlife noises - to be safe, I'd call out "Hey Bear!" when some of the noises seemed uncomfortably close... :-O

Image made with my Olympus OM-D e-M1 mk2 with the m.Zuiko 8mm Fisheye Pro lens with the setup mounted on my MeFoto Globetrotter tripod. 15 exposures, each 25s at ISO3200. I then used Starry Landscape Stacker to combine the images and this did a wonderful job eliminating any noise in the sky! Foreground is ISO1600 | 20s | f1.8. Stacked images were exported with foreground mask into On1 Photo RAW 19.6 and I used its Layers functionality to process and combine the images. CC is always welcome!

  • #obviousad 😋If you're an energy drink person ( ahem ☕️), I feel you should know that @7Eleven has a new exclusive option for you! #ad @Uptimeenergy has 38 grams of cane sugar (or zero, if you go with sugar-free), and it tastes like a slightly more orangey 🍊 and less cloying orange soda 🥤 . I actually really like it! As someone who doesn't drink soda very often, it's a nice treat I can use to substitute an iced americano on those days that coffee just makes me want to die (they're rare, but they occur). Drew & I brought some along on our trip to Griffis Sculpture Park and (along with water) they were a great way to keep our energy levels up as we made our way through the park. #UpTimeBloodOrange711
