Mountain Laurel on Paradise Lane

Mountain laurel on Paradise Lane

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.

  1. Those are very lovely images of the Mountain Laurel that we saw along Paradise Lane, Richard. Love that bokeh! That was a very pleasant time on our hike that day.

    1. Right Gary, and then things started going slightly askew, first with the injured hiker, then with the rain. Still, it was a great hike. Interesting that neither of us has much in the way of images past the injured hiker: we were booking!
