This was my first time using my new camera on an actual trip. If you didn’t know, I’ve been just taking pictures on my iPhone up until now. I bought a Nikon D3300 to learn more about photography. This was my first real camera and I’m definitely enjoying it! If you’re new to photography this is a good camera to start out with, at least for me it was.
let me tell you what happened! I was going to do a road trip in Vermont and Lake George for 4 days. I’ve been to Lake George already, here are the pictures I took with my iPhone. But I was going this time during the fall and with the new camera. Everything went well on the trip, I took probably around 700-800 pictures. Then I got home and went to transfer my pictures onto my laptop. I noticed my cameras memory card was almost full so I decided to click the erase after transfer option to clear my memory card. Everything transferred normally and my memory card was cleared. Then I went online and all of a sudden I get these pop ups. I got a virus that encrypts your files! So I lost all my pictures!! I was able to recover some of the photos from my memory card using a program I found online. I probably recovered 20 pictures and some were duplicates. I’m going to post some of the pictures I recovered here! And I’m going to make another post about the second time I ever went up a mountain (I lost the pictures for my first time).
But morale of the story. Always Have duplicates! Although most of you probably already knew that. I’m happy this happened so soon in my photography journey though and not after a much longer trip further away. I’ll probably go back to Vermont next fall and do it again!
This is in Stowe! Early in the morning
This picture doesn’t capture the true size of this waterfall! I was surprised at how big it was when I saw it. It’s called Moss Glen Falls, its about a 5-10 minute hike from the parking area.
This place is called Rattlesnake Cliffs. About an hour to an hour and a half hike from the parking lot. Great views from the top. It’s closed for a few months in the summer because its a nesting area for falcons, i believe. So check that out before you decide to go.
Such a peaceful lake.
A Storms coming! You can see some rain out in the distance.
Which was your favorite picture?!
