In some of the frames you can see what appears to be some type of luminescent materials.
At first, I thought it was a side-effect of the filters in combination with the electronic components & programming of the camera... Perhaps a side effect of the lens, or the inner workings of the DSLR which work VERY different than analogue, and use it's own internal calculated "algorithms" to filter what the image SHOULD look like.

But, my daughter kept find these rocks that were covered in a GREEN algae-like substance, and kept showing it to me. I was like: Uh-huh, that's nice... it's just some algae with some worm-like organism on it...

But, the things I'm picking up on the equipment SEEM to be showing THROUGH the water, form BENEATH it, and being refracted but the waves.

I was using a UV filter (one of several which I have) with a star cross-hair filter beneath that. So, I thought well it MUST be an optical effect of THAT, right?

But, the phenomena don't occur in ALL the photos, and ONLY in THAT spot.

Also the green glow shows no signs of the STAR effects on them like the glistening of the water ripple highlights.

I HAVE also heard of a type of algae or plankton that use bio-luminescence that can cause the beach to glow at some times of the year. I just never heard of it this far North.

So... is it bio material?

Or, is it a mechanical effect?

Autumn Tree Tops 2012

Autumn 2012 was a a rather disappointing year for Fall foliage in New England, because it was MOSTLY green, rained and knocked several leaves off just as they were turning, very erratic weather patterns.

It was also a generally warm autumn.

The 1 place that could have some colors, other than GREEN & YELLOW was the Colonial Graveyard near my home. You could actually find ORANGE....

You can't always see good colors up in New England, but some years are utterly amazing! The past 2 years weren't.

 No filters on these frames. I was experimenting with a wide angle fisheye.

Hey, ya never know until you try.

Mostly just focusing on the tree tops with minimal background in the composition.
And, I was experimenting with a Dutch Tilt.

Macro stuffs... mostly just sticking with the presets....
*shrugs* -everyone seems to like these....

A bit more Orange:

The Big Blizzard At Night!

The flash on this one REALLY made this frame look like a snowglobe using my wide angle fisheye lens!

This blizzard was really terrible! I couldn't even stay out in it for very long.

Most of the frames I got, I couldn't even use.

This is it:
