I got a new traveling camera today and had to go try it out. I'd been wanting a camera for the car that had more of a telephoto aspect to it so that I could get photos of clock towers and other far off interesting things. I'm happy to say that I think this Nikon L810 is going to do the job nicely.
This stump is usually underwater. It's across the pond and yet the camera picked up every little detail of it.
One of my favorite stone arch bridges. Sometimes I surprise myself with a photograph. I love the reflection that makes the arch look like a complete circle.
The founder of Hillsboro, John Hill, donated a triangle of land with this pound, the cemetery,and buildings in 1769. It is all maintained beautifully.
Up the road is the old schoolhouse, a nice prim & proper New England white clapboard building.
Gray shingles and barn red trim. . . all behind the garden and fruit trees. This is why I wanted this kind of camera. This shot was taken from 2 fields away.
New England cemeteries, granite and the oldest slate headstones, leaning every which way.
Winters can be cold and thrifty residents still heat with wood. A well stacked wood pile means a warm house this winter.
The grass has gone to seed, and I saw red leaves on more than a few maple trees during our afternoon's drive.
I am pleased with the photos my new camera took. It was a great day to be out for a drive -- a nice 15 mile loop from the house.
I hope you've enjoyed a glimpse of what New Hampshire looks like in late August.
