During 2018 I used three cameras: A Canon G9 X, an iPhone SE and an iPhone XR. My iPhone SE served me well the last few years, but I had to replace it in the fall of 2018 because of a defective part (charge port/microphone) and I decided to go with the iPhone XR, which has an excellent camera.
The pictures that I selected for my 2018 top ten were taken in my home town of Easton, PA, New York City and Hoboken, NJ.
I shot these two pictures with my iPhone SE on Sunday, July 22, 2018, while walking over the Fahy Bridge in Bethlehem, PA. The bridge crosses the Lehigh River and connects Historic Bethlehem with South Bethlehem.
In the distance you can the old Bethlehem Steel plant on the right side of the river.
I modified both photos with the HDR Blue Sky filter on the Tonality App.
I set out on my first walk of the new year this afternoon and decided to take a walk down Delaware Canal Towpath. It was certainly a beautiful day, with the sun shining bright. It was very cold today as well, with high temperature only reaching 18 degrees. I really didn’t mind it. This is my third winter in PA since I moved back East from Southern California and I have finally built up my collection of cold weather gear to the point where I feel well prepared for extended period of extreme cold. For this winter a added a pair of Merrell FST Moab Ice+Thermo hiking boots and a Polartec Balaclava. I did not need the Balaclava today, but I carry with me at all times in case I have break it out.
Here is a short video I made on the Towpath, along with a few still shots I took while I was on the trail.
