Paradise Lane Trail, Bear Mountain, Connecticut. Gary and I hiked from Undermountain Trail in Connecticut to the Race Brook Falls Trail in Massachusetts along the Appalachian Trail a few weeks ago (I’m behind in my photo editing).
This was not a good year for mountain laurel and these blooms along Paradise Lane were the best ones we saw on this hike. I liked the way the Ricoh GR made them look in high contrast but these are the GR’s RAWs processed in Lightroom. I liked the extra detail the RAW files gave me.
The color images are done with the Sony RX100 III and show the wonderful colors of this state plant of Connecticut.
