Lake Waramaug from Waramaug Rock
Macricostas Preserve, Washington, Connecticut. Gary, Anne and I hiked the loop trail at Macricostas Preserve, right down the road from our house. The fireworks show on the 4th was rained out but this is the place we like to hike to to watch them so we figured we’d get up there anyway. Nice hike and the landscape, while hot and humid was quite photogenic.
I shot both high contrast black and white and RAW with the Ricoh GR and these are RAW files processed in Lightroom. There’s so much more information in the RAW files that’s useful for printing that I have to make sure I keep the GR set up this way even though it’s a bit more cumbersome for processing.
Note, I have to say the new version of Flickr is much improved, they’re finally moving in the right direction with it. Thank god.
