Tom Elenbaas in Iceland shot on Google Pixel 2 XL

Tom Elenbaas at Gjáin in Iceland, September 2018

In September 2018, when we visited Iceland, we ran into photographer Tom Elenbaas ankle deep in the waters of Gjáin in the south. I took the above photo of him with my Google Pixel 2 XL.

I hadn’t revisited his site in a while but I stopped by today to see the photo he shot while in these waters.

We had a nice short chat after I took this photo and I ended up emailing it to him a few days later. Be sure to check out his fantastic work on his web site.

Dingle Bay, Loch Caragh, Co. Kerry, Ireland – October 2011

Had the opportunity to finally edit these photos from our trip to Ireland 9 years ago. No drones then, all feet.

Lackawanna River American Mink – November 2019

This is a special episode. This is the first time I set out with a specific objective in mind (rather than just exploring or wandering) and I accomplished it!

The animal in the first image is, I’ve now learned more accurately, an American Mink (not a Fisher or Skink as I thought previously). It is in the weasel family and I can’t believe I found him.

Please enjoy this episode. I know I enjoyed recording it.

Edit: In the audio I misidentify this animal several times. I use mink, weasel, skink (which is a lizard) and fisher! Nearly in the same breath! Sorry about that. I had to get back and carefully look through the photos and compare them with what I’ve found online to figure out this was a mink after all.

Seelyville Dam – November 2019

On my way to the pub with a few friends I stopped by a nearby dam to shoot photos. I was surprised that just above the dam was a small marshy area filled with ducks, geese, beavers and birds. I managed to fire off just a few photos before the light faded.

There is one photo of Keenlake Campground’s adorable tunnel that I quickly stopped by to shoot as the sun was setting through it.

Cape Cod – September 2019

Eliza, her mother, and I spent the very last few days of Summer in Cape Cod – whale watching, shopping, and barbecuing.

A narrow pond with a hill in the distance.

Sickler’s Pond to Elk Hill – August 2019

I still have a lot to learn about manually creating HDR images using my drone. This was my first attempt. You’ll notice the sky and foreground are both properly exposed. A nice technique to have when needed.

Raymondskill Falls – July 2019

These loud falls run into the Delaware between Pennsylvania and New Jersey just outside of Milford, PA.

Eliza, sunset – September 2018

I remember this as a gorgeous early fall evening with Eliza and friends.

A small creek runs on the right with a large tree in the distance and some cattails in the foreground.

South Branch Tunkhannock Creek – April 2019

Had a lovely time fishing here recently while the sun set at my back.
