Back hunting the north east...for a week.

Its been a while since I was back in my natural element of PA and NJ hunting trees but I had a limited amount of time to do so this week. I didn't take a lot of measurements but enjoy the photos. A couple are big tree list worthy. Some are just nice shots.

John,
Gorgeous pictures! That silver maple looks impressive. Most of the biggies I see branch in a coppice fashion. That one has a solid truck for a good bit before branching. Your black and white photos are so crisp. It reminds me that I need to do more black and whites.

Thanks Brian. That silver maple was probably in the 17-18ft cir range.
This camera I have now I'm really happy with. Its a sony rx100 I bought off craigslist and is great for someone who enjoys photography but doesn't want to spend thousands or carry around heavy equipment.
