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!

Field From Homeland Road

I've been watching this spot for the past several mornings on my way to work, waiting for the right combination of low fog and light. Today was about as close to perfect as I've seen here, so I had to stop. Apparently, I'm not the only person who's been watching. While I was there, at least two other photographers stopped in various nearby spots for their angle on the scene.

There are a couple of other places I'm watching along my drive to work, and I think I'm going to hit them up Saturday morning -- of course, if conditions are right (and safe), I'll always stop for a picture!

All images made with the Fujifilm X10, with mostly light post processing in Adobe Lightroom 5.2.
