Another foggy morning image of Pennsylvania because I just couldn’t get enough of this magical morning. It was honestly the highlight of my day. For this image, I think I was still on top of the hill when I captured it. I just love seeing the layers of the yellow tree in front, red barn, and then the trees in the background. As soon as I climbed up this hill, I immediately regretted forgetting my drone in the Airbnb. Next time I have to remember to bring EVERYTHING with me.
Happy Friday and have a good weekend! Hope to do some more fall color hunting…
My camera settings for this image is F10 at 1/125th sec and ISO 1600 with my Sony A7II and 70-200mm zoom lens.
Is it just me or is it easier to wake up for sunrise when you’re traveling then it is when you’re home? Before I went to bed, I set my alarm for 5:30 am. I woke up the next morning before my alarm, bright-eyed and ready to go. It was amazing.
I had every intention of visiting Cucumber Falls Waterfall in Ohiopyle State Park but what I did not expect was all this amazing morning fog. I couldn’t help myself. I kept on pulling over every 5 minutes trying to capture it. I was pulling over on the side of the road or turning into little roads along the way. There was one road in particular that looked like it was half foggy and half not so I had to pull over. While I was taking pictures, I noticed a couple walking their two dogs. Turns out one of them was a puppy so I had to wait for them to come closer so I could ask to pet the puppy. LOL. Well, the puppy was 5 months old and so playful. After talking to their owners for a little while, they said that they lived on the property on top of the hill and told me that I should go up there for an even better view.
OMG this was the view from their hill. Long story short, I did not make it to the waterfall. LOL. And this was the gentlemen and the older dog walking by on the road I met them on. That sunrise glow though!

It’s the last day of 2018 and I thought it would be fun to look back on the past year and relive some of my favorite travel moments from the year. It’s interesting because I do something similar to this every year and every year my favorite images are almost always different from others. I try not to let emotions play into the selection but it can be difficult. You’ll see what I mean 🙂
I had a fantastic year of travel and so blessed to be able to experience everything that I did. I’m lucky enough to have visited the Europe, Caribbean and of course different parts of America. So let me know what you think. Click on each image to read the original blog post:
One of my very first drone images from San Diego. Taken around this time last year, I loved being in Southern California in the winter time. I got my drone at the end of 2017 so I was just practicing flying when I took this image. I really didn’t think much of it until I saw that bird fly below close to the water. With the placement of where I’m sitting and that bird, I love how everything lines up. Definitely expect more drone images from me in 2019. I’m hooked!
Like my last couple of trips, I wanted to work on my street photography. I just have so much fun with it and you never really know what you’re going to get. Similar to the trips to Japan and this one to Aruba.
However going through my images, I found that I took a lot more architectural images than anything else. I thought it was interesting, but not surprising. There are so many hills in San Francisco and it made it slightly difficult to walk, but I really enjoyed the different perspectives you would get throughout the city. Whether you’re on top of a hill or on the bottom, nothing really looked the same one block to the next.
So here are a couple of images I took on the streets of San Francisco.
This was taken somewhere in the financial district and purposely left the words “Turkey. For the win” in. That’s for Andrew because he loves turkey. HAHA
Another POV from a crazy hill somewhere in the Mission District I think and I’m pretty sure I was on top of a hill looking down.
This person was taken their dog on a walk. I just love the different textures and framing this one image has. I was happy with it as soon as I snapped the pic.
There were so many people walking around the Financial District with these bags. I stalked them to find out that it was the American Psychological Association and not the American Photographers Association 🙁 Anyways that’s me in the shadow with my huge backpack on.
Thanks for checking out my images and I hoped you liked them. The very top image is very close to that California Street image I talked about last week. I just love that early morning light that’s on the buildings. Also, today’s my birthday! 🙂
Another awesome view of from Twin Peaks in San Francisco. Its fun to bring your zoom lens up there. You never know what compositions you’ll find. I love the layers upon layers in this image. Something you probably won’t see in Virginia. HAHA.
