Thanks for viewing this Day Trip post. If you aren’t already familiar with my content on this site regarding my Day Trip posts, here’s a quick intro…
I have been into photography for a long time and my primary interest with my camera work is outdoor candid photography which includes nature, wildlife, and people around the lakes in Georgia and Alabama. I bought my first “good” camera in 2016 and using it pretty much solidified my interests in photography. Before then, it was basically just cellphone photography that I did (mostly for fun and because all I had was my cellphone cameras). This site is my “journal” of photography served in the form of my self published digital (pdf) magazines. The magazines start from the very beginning of my photography with my “good” camera (which is Canon’s SX410 bridge camera for those interested to know). Since the magazines are focused on my older photography (for now until I catch up on all the editing of thousands of photos that are going into these magazines) I thought it would be nice to start these Day Trip posts to highlight my more recent photography that would be coming up in later issues of the magazines.
So how this works is with each Day Trip post, I’ll provide the date, maybe a few short paragraphs about my photography on that day and then show you a few photos taken on that date. The photos shown to you in these Day Trip posts are intended to give you an idea of the type of photography I love to do, and to allow you some previews of photography that you will see in MUDPIX MAGAZINE, my self published photo magazine. I think you’ll enjoy the work I have to show you if you love outdoor photography.
So let’s get started with this Day Trip post featuring photos I shot on Sunday, April 28th, 2019 with a few notes about the trip that day.
A note I made on this day (In Google Keep I think) – 2019-04-28-SU @ 6:45 PM – When I woke up this morning I hadn’t planned on logging 115 miles out on the road driving to nearly every location I know on Lake Harding and West Point Lake, but I did. I left home around 9 AM and came back at around 6 PM, and I brought back some cool shots on my Canon SX410. Today’s trip took me to Goat Rock Dam, Bartlett’s Ferry Dam, Poor Boy’s Landing, Valley Park, Veasey Creek Park, Rocky Point Park, Anderson Park, West Overlook, West Point Dam Beach, (I didn’t go to Hardley Creek Park by the dam this time), Eagle View Park, R. Shaeford Heard Park, Long Cane Park, Lower Glass Recreation Area, and finally Earl Cook Recreation Park.
This was one of the best days out on the lake that I’d had for a long time, and I visited more parks on this day than on any other day ever during all of my previous day trips.
I captured a ton of photos that day that will appear in a future issue of MUDPIX MAGAZINE. Take a look at some of the highlights from my day trip on Sunday, April 28th, 2019 below.
