So at last I gave in and bought one of my dream lenses. The only way to see what it could do, was to go out and shoot some pictures. I went to one of my favorite places and tried to capture the sunset.
The Hamptons is a part of the East End of Long Island, USA. It comprises of a group of villages and hamlets in the towns of Southampton and East Hampton, which together form the South Fork of Long Island, in Suffolk County, New York. The Hamptons form a popular seaside resort and one of the historical summer colonies of the northeastern United States. So I decided I need to go to the Hamptons to see if I should summer there myself. The verdict is in: I should surely summer here.
Aaah at last we made it to Chicago! Last year my wife and I had a nightmarish airport experience where we never made it to Chicago even after 48 hours. I won’t get into the details of that trip, but this time we made it. We took off on time as well as got back to Jersey on time. The trip was great since it was time spent well with friends who are like family, but the weather sucked. We did manage to get out from time to time when the rain did let up so I managed to get some pictures.
Savannah was established in 1733 on the Savannah River. A strategic port city in the American Revolution and during the American Civil War. Another place off my list of american states to visit. One of the best parts of being in Savannah was the food, the other was watching the sun set over the Savannah river.
Charleston is the oldest and largest city in the U.S. state of South Carolina. It was founded in 1670 as Charles Town, honoring King Charles II of England. I always wanted to visit this place and indulge in the southern food. A few weeks back this dream came true when my wife and I visited Charleston, SC.
We traveled to the southern most tip of New Jersey, this is where the Delaware Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean. This is one of the oldest beach resort areas in America. It was a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of Jersey City. Cape May was amazing and memorable, but the highlight of our trip was sunset beach, the pictures I took don’t do it justice.
I have always had a tradition of going to a new place in the fall of every year, especially to a place which displays all the magnificent colors. Now its grown into something bigger and better where my family and friends join me. This year we decided to go to Rhode Island and we picked the perfect weekend. The weather was perfect and the colors were at their peak. We stayed by the Narragansett bay in a lake house and went around Rhode Island for a few amazing hikes. We were also lucky to be able to attend an amazing jack-o-lantern festival by night at the local zoo. I can’t wait to plan next year’s trip. I am hoping we go to Maine or maybe somewhere in Canada.
