Dry Run Falls

Well I've been a bit discouraged with my photography lately.  I've been thinking something is wrong with my camera, come to find out its my lens that's only a little over a year old.  I had it repaired by Nikon and I'm still not satisfied with it. 

I was ready to throw in the towel and call it quits.....well not really but you know what I mean. 

So back to my old kit lens, it's better than the $500.00 one thats a year old...sigh. Isn't that a bummer.

Well enough complaining.  We went on a road trip Saturday. I'm in search of waterfalls in our beautiful state.  You know how I love to photograph waterfalls. 

This is Dry Run Falls in Sullivan County in the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania.

I must go back in the autumn. 














This is an image made at a vista overlooking the Loyalsock Gorge with Loyalsock Creek flowing through it.  The Endless Mountains of PA. 

Wishing you all a wonderful  week.  Stay cool.  It's been so warm here. I'm looking forward to autumn and winter.

I love waterfalls and mountains, too. Thank you for sharing these pretty photos. Autumn would be a great time to return for more photos. Have a nice week.

...I'd be tickled pink if these were mine! I always buy a three years warranty on my cameras, it has paid me back more than the cost.

Nice little waterfalls, and excellent pictures! I'm having similar trouble with the auto-focus on my Nikon lens. So frustrating!

Camera/lens problems can be very frustrating.The waterfalls is gorgeous and I can only imagine how beautiful it would be in fall.

Your Dry Run Falls photos came out great! Long enough exposure to give that silky look to the running water.

I have one lens that I had to send back twice before it worked properly and now a couple of years later it's starting to act up again... Good thing it has a 10 year warranty!

Truly Awesome. Great clicks.

What a shame about your lens, sometimes the old is better than the new.

Well, I for one, have never seen anything wrong with your photography so you must have not posted any of those photos taken with your $$$ lens. The waterfalls shots are absolutely stunning. It is still a goal of mine to get some good silky waterfall shots and believe me, EVERYONE will know about if and when I am successful! :D

These are wonderful photos, as always. I never noticed the quality of your photography declining.

Sorry to hear about your lens trouble! All this technology is a blessing and a curse. Such a beautiful falls, and you've captured them so nicely no matter the lens!
Jeanna said…
Simply beautiful shots, you have one helluva kit lens. I've been very frustrated with my photos too and even got a new camera which I promptly returned. Now I'm debating whether to spend a considerable chunk of change on a newer version or get a new lens for less than half the price.
Your photos are gorgeous and I love the last vista view.

Gorgeous waterfall shots!
I grew up in the mountains of East Tennessee and love your photos. I'm hoping you do return in the fall and post pictures.

I so love these, Felicia. JUst my type of country. Wishing I could just step into them.

Frustrating when you spend lots of $$ on camera gear, only to find it doesn't work properly. Nice waterfall!
Wow.
I bet it will be gorgeous with autumn colors!
Lady Fi said…
What lush countryside and lovely shots of the falls.

I got a new lens too that I am not happy with - must re-sell it to the shop!

Beautiful landscape.

So pretty. I wish I had falls closer to me. I have to drive pretty far for a scene like this.

So sorry to hear about your lens. It is a bummer when equipment doesn't work the way it is supposed to work. However, your photos are lovely and I hope you keep finding amazing places to continue your photographic journey. My mom lives in Pennsylvania. I need to check more of the state (went to Jim Thorpe and loved it).

Nice waterfall photos. I hope you can sort out your lens issue. I had a spot internal to a lens and it drove me nuts for months (where's that sunspot coming from?!)
Denise inVA said…
Frustrating for you but these are wonderful photos Felicia. I have been feeling the same way about my zoom lens lately.
Sharon said…
You got a lovely blur on the waterfall with your kit lens. I just got a new lens (55-200) and I love it except that I can't get a wide angle on landscapes. I'll probably be saving for another lens now . . .
don said…
Sorry for the difficulty. I think NIkon should make it right. Another repair or replacement.
Ida said…
Bummer about the camera lens issue.
Love the waterfall, it's charming and quaint.
Oh my that last shot is just breathtaking.
Blogoratti said…
Lovely photo of the waterfall. When an issues arises with an equipment, it affects everything really. Hope you sort it out eventually. Warm greetings!

Really super images of the falls Felicia, glad to see your frustration with other lens didn't distract you! Have a good weekend ✨
Tammie Lee said…
Your photos are absolutely beautiful.
I am sorry to hear about your lens trouble. I also have this problem and have been resisting sending it in. I really should do it.

Wishing you a cool breeze!

Cameras - a source of wonder and frustration in about equal measure I think.
