ACROS

Macricostas Preserve, Washington, Connecticut.

We took a short walk up to Waramaug Rock and around the Macricostas loop trail. I knew I’d shot this tree before but I was inspired by an image I saw here on Flickr this morning from Fuzzy Messed Up Panda:

Mine doesn’t have the great bokeh his does but I gave it my best shot, so to speak.

Bear Rock Creek

Bear Rock Creek crosses the Appalachian Trail two miles north of the Connecticut/Massachusetts border in Massachusetts.

I was inspecting one of the two sections I maintain on the Appalachian Trail and since I had my new Fuji X100F with me I decided to try out its ACROS filter on the falling water on this creek.

I’m still getting used to the camera but I do like it and while it’s bigger than the others I prefer to carry on hikes, it’s possible to carry it in a padded bag on one of my pack’s shoulder straps.

These images are almost straight out of the camera; I pulled the highlights down a bit to show more detail in the white water.
