About The Rickster

The Rickster

I am primarily interested in the natural beauty of the Mid-Hudson Valley... and the sky above me...For me, a vacation consists of time spent being out in the world around me and letting photo-ops present themselves...

Photography Equipment

I was using a Nikon Coolpix P100 until it came loose from my tripod and landed lens-down... Hello, Nikon Service?? I bought a Nikon L810 (red, to match my car...) and am looking forward to getting back to shooting my world.. I use AVS Photo Editor to do minor enhancement , using Brightness, Contrast, and White Balance to bring the images closer to what I saw. In the future I may get some image manipulation software-(Lightroom comes to mind) and delve into that world too.
