Places to visits and a things you must see while there:
Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, which has 19th-century buildings, a Civil War Museum and John Brown’s Fort, a key site in an 1859 abolitionist raid. The Potomac and Shenandoah rivers meet, known as The Point, offers views of Maryland and Virginia.
The easiest way to explain is with an example. If it’s a sunny day, your aperture is set to F/16 and ISO set to 200, to correctly expose your image the shutter speed needs to be set to 1/200 (the inverse of the ISO number). ISO speed is your camera’s sensitivity to light. A bigger ISO speed means a larger sensitivity. If your camera is more sensitive to light, it takes less light to take a picture bright. Most cameras start out at an ISO speed of 100, and some models go as high as ISO 1600. That’s 16 times more sensitive than the default, meaning you’d need to expose the camera to 16 times less light to get the same picture.
Another example. Let’s say it’s a sunny day, and your camera is set to ISO 400. According to the sunny 16 rule, if you use an aperture of F/16 and a shutter speed of 1/400 s, you will have an evenly balanced image that is neither too bright nor too dark. The rule works great when it's sunny.
"A lovely reminder of how beautiful change can be."
Sharing some old~time elegance, this is one variety of the dwarf lilac. Wanted to tell you some things to think about when photographing flowers.
Sharp focus is important in all forms of photography but in flower Macro photography it is crucial and even a tiny adjustment can have massive implications for your shot as the depth of field is so small. Identify the point of interest that you want to be in focus and then work hard to ensure that it’s as sharp as possible. This can be a real challenge, especially outdoors on breezy days where you’ll probably end up taking a lot of images and relying on luck to some degree! You can improve your ‘luck’ a little by photographing in a more controlled environment like shielding them from wind or just choosing to do your photography on a still day. Happy spring shooting.

When I photograph an old barn I can't help but think ~ the memories the barn holds. How many conversations did the family have in that barn? How many tears were shed over a horse or calf that didn’t make it? How much laughter has that barn listened to over the years? If this barn could talk, it would undoubtedly tell many stories.
You are wonderfully made: Look at the world around you, the infinite detail and creativity. Unimaginable beauty surrounds us every day. You are part of that creation, materializing from the same artist that created sunsets and rainbows. Don't ever allow yourself to think you are anything less than wonderful.
Woke up on Saturday morning, January 23, 2016 to this. Wasn't really surprised about getting snow but will have to say I was surprised about the amount of snow. It was definitely going to be a Netflix day. But I wanted to try to get some winter pictures so I went out with the camera and for a short time got maybe 4 pictures and returned to the house soaked. It wasn't a normal snow day for pictures for sure. The few pictures I took were so blurred from the wind and snow they weren't usable. On Sunday I tried again and had better luck with getting some pictures showing the drifts and height of the snow fall. It really was an amazing amount of snow!
