Harkness Park – grove

This is the third and final posting of photos taken at Harkness Memorial State Park in Connecticut. The first is about the beach at the park, and the second about the gardens there.

These photos of the circular grove of trees were taken with a fisheye lens using High Dynamic Range photography, a process where a number of photographs are taken using different levels of light and then combined to preserve a high level of detail. Only the last image was taken with a regular (100mm, I think) lens.

Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest Lyn, She Of Great Taste In All Things But Men, who does most of the photo selection. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.

    • Thank you, but the equipment did all the work! It is an eerie effect, isn’t it? I have to be honest, it caught me for a loop. I wasn’t expecting anything so good!

    • You are very, very kind, thank you! I am surprisingly pleased with the way they came out. Which is to say, “lucky” but let’s keep that a secret between us! 😉

    • That is very kind of you! Thank you! I must admit that I am happy with the way they came out. I look forward to seeing you visit again, soon, please.
