Tag Archives: Lynch Park

I’ve decided to do a Playground Series based upon yesterday’s image. 

Hooray! 🙂 

With many neat structures in our area, I’m looking forward to what I might find.

“Rusty Monkey” (Monkey Bars, Child’s Play Structure) Playground Series (#2), Nikon D300, 48mm, F/8, 1/80s, ISO 200, ‘Old West’ Toning Action

So far, I’m thinking the tax dollars set aside for Parks & Rec are in serious need of analysis as clearly the kids are getting the short end of the stick! 🙂

“Chain Gang” (Rubber Tires, Child’s Play Structure) Playground Series (#1), Nikon D300, 80mm, F/6.3, 1/200s, ISO 400, ‘Old West’ Toning Action

With no flowers or critters in sight, I find myself looking at more urban themes lately. 

The large play structure at Lynch Park has certainly seen better days. I’m not sure what wreaks more havoc on the wood and metal – the combined elements of water, wind and salt or the hordes of children who climb on, up, over and through?

Already full of lovely rusted charm, this image received an interesting finish called ‘Old West’ from a neat Photoshop Action Set I downloaded from Pioneer Woman Photography.

Good stuff there. Check it out! 🙂

Another spectactularshow at high tide today.

“The Beach is Closed” (High Tide Waves Crashing Over Sea Wall, Lynch Park) Nikon D300, 18mm, F/14, 1/250s, +0.7EV, ISO 500, Silver Efex Pro ‘Dark Sepia’ Filter, Selective Toning

I was so hoping to have this image in raging color but a blah, overcast sky refused to cooperate!

C’est la vie. 🙂

"After the Nor'easter" (High Tide Waves Crashing Against Lynch Park Seawall) Nikon D300, 50mm, F/16, 1/320s, +0.3EV, ISO 640

What the hell is WRONG with me?

That is the question I should have been asking when I jumped off the sea wall, at high tide after a Nor’easter, to get this shot!

Fact of the matter is, I tried all conceivable angles from atop the wall and nothing was properly capturing the power of the incoming tide. The sight was amazing; the sound, deafening.

So there I was, faced with (really) the only choice. All I had to do was jump. 

Yes, I got completely soaked.

Yes, the water was freezing.

And, YES, it was TOTALLY worth it! 😀
