Warwick Valley

I shot this from one of my favorite Warwick stops – Bellvale Farms Creamery.  Not only has Bellvale ice cream been voted one of the best in the country, they most certainly have one of the best views of any ice cream store in the country.

Abby the Great on Point

Abby had ACL surgery in September of ’13 so we were more than a little concerned that she would not be able to hunt again.  We went out on Saturday for a short hunt at Black Meadow in New York’s Warwick Valley.  We put four birds out and she found five – not unusual for Abby, she is always cleaning up after lesser dogs.  This is a point on a Chukar (Partridge family) near the end of our short hunt.

The picture was taken with my new Fuji X100S at 1/1700, f8, ISO 320, 23mm (fixed).  This is my first experience with the X100S and so far I am very impressed.  The dynamic range in the shot was very high and I adjusted exposure in Lightroom with no noticeable noise or artifacts.  Most of the adjustments for this shot were done in Lightroom with some retouching and blur added in Photoshop.
