Weekend on the Shore

We spent this past weekend on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Saturday was spent on the upper shore, in and around Easton and Oxford, and on the road to Berlin (near Ocean City); Sunday we went over to Assateague, where we spent some time in the National Park (we took the opportunity to re-up our annual parks pass). I haven't had a lot of time to work on the images, so they're presented here "straight." I'll select a few to work on in OnOne Perfect Effects and post them over the next few days.

Saturday's Shots

Most of these are from Oxford, although I poked around a few other little towns as well.

Sunday's Shots

Mostly at Assateague, though I did shoot a few on the boardwalk at Ocean City, and a couple on the drive back to Berlin.

The pictures of the birds are particularly fun, because the Fujifilm X-E1 is just not supposed to be good at that kind of thing, and a 230mm lens is typically far too short to do anything decent with. I'll admit, getting the bird shots was challenging with that camera, but then again, getting good shots of birds is always a challenge!

Sunset on the Shore

On a quick run to Maryland's Eastern Shore. The sunset was remarkable, so we stopped along US Route 50 to take a few pictures.

These were all taken with the little Fujifilm X10, and are pretty much straight from the camera.

From our trip home from the Eastern Shore this afternoon/evening. The clouds were quite dramatic, and the angle of the sun provided incredible rim lighting, shadows and rays.

The images here were all recorded with the camera in my HTC Thunderbolt along Old Ocean City Highway near Berlin, MD, or along US Route 50. The images were uploaded from the phone to my dropbox, and then downloaded into my iPhone 3Gs, where they were each processed using the iOS version of Snapseed. They were then uploaded back to dropbox, and then uploaded to the site.
