I've been up at camp for two weeks now. The first two weeks I had to work, but I was able to enjoy time with family in the evenings and on the weekends.
On Friday I began my vacation week and a friend arrived for the 4th of July holiday weekend. Since he arrived, we've been very busy photographing stuff. Mostly we've been photographing the Osprey family I watch here, but we also stopped at a few of my favorite barns and my favorite stone chapel. In addition, Justin has been having fun feeding and photographing my chipmunks. For his final night here, we went down to Hague and watched/photographed the fireworks.
We arrived at the beach in Hague early to make sure we got a decent parking spot and a nice spot for viewing. We waited forever and had to deal with a lot of annoying stuff. Eventually the fireworks started and we were really disappointed as they were happening behind these huge trees. We started to leave and I had this feeling that those fireworks couldn't possibly be the ones we had waited for. So we went back to a spot closer on the beach. Thankfully we did as the first set of fireworks weren't the real ones and the real one did eventually start close to 10pm (which was far later than we had anticipated the start time to be). The fireworks only lasted about 15-20 minutes, but they were very nice as they were shot from a barge on Lake George and so all the low ones lit up the water below.
I have over 150 shots to go through, but I took a really quick peak and saw one that I thought was worth sharing.
Have a happy and safe 4th of July!!!
