What better way to spend a birthday morning in sub freezing temperatures than hiking at one of my favorite location, Peebles Island State Park in Waterford, New York. I brought my 5D Mark III and my soon to be replaced EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens. Replaced, that is, by a slightly more recent version without (hopefully) the physical issues my $65 version has. Details to come.
It was a delightful morning with the leaves dropping like snowflakes after the first freeze of the season. These are all five file HDR composites made during my walk around the island.
