Christmas in Zoar, 2010

I realized today that it's been a while since I've posted anything to this site.  Life gets busy and in the way of things sometimes.  So, here's a few images from this years Christmas in Zoar.

Turkey Day in Detroit

Normally this blog features images captured in and around Tuscarawas County, my home in Ohio.  But today I wanted to share some images I took with my brother at a park near my parents house.  The day was rainy and the fog moved in which brought some dramatic, but cool, lighting.

Downtown Dover

The other night, we went down to Dover to watch our daughter march with her middle school band in the annual Halloween Parade.  I've been to Dover thousands of times in the past 13 years I've lived in Tuscarawas County.  It wasn't until the other night that I started to notice "things".  I'm thinking Downtown Dover is going to be the next project on the photo blog.  Stay tuned!

Once more into the Ansel state of mind

Knowing that my window of clear skies are limited this week, I made may way to the Zoar Levee to try and get some images of the Moon rising over the town.  Not know where the moon was coming up, I made my way up and down the levee trying to find the right spot.
I know it looks like I edited the moon to make it appear larger, but that's actually a result of using a zoom lens from a distance.

My Ansel Adams-ish moments tonight

I've been trying to capture to moon rising over a certain area by where I live for a couple years now.  I finally caught it tonight.

The beauty of October continues.

Can't really say much more about this weekend except, I love a warm, beautiful October.  And with lighting like this, can't beat that either.

The National Park that's up the road.

One of the sometimes overlooked gems of Northeast Ohio is the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.  It's a place that I spent a LOT of time at when I was a teenager hiking around and taking pictures with dreams of becoming the next Ansel Adams.  But these days, we only seem to make it up there one a year and it's usually around this time to catch the fall colors.

Magic hour in Zoar

The glowing sunlight of this time of year is almost mind-boggling.  I once again jumped in the car and tried to capture what I could of it.

Sundown in Zoar

It's one of those Octobers where it started off cold, but has gotten beautiful.  After dinner tonight, we went for a walk around Zoar.  No matter how many times I go down there with my camera, I always see something I hadn't seen before.
