Sky Hy, Topsam ME

Happy Sunday!

And for Sunday, an image from this weekend’s Men’s Retreat at Sky Hy Conference Center in Topsham Maine. Formerly a ski lodge with a tow-rope slope, Sky Hy is situated in a range of what are, by any standard that includes the Rockies, medium high hills about 20 miles inland from the ocean. This shot was from the third floor balcony. The hill drops away to Bradley Pond, here seen under another amazing Maine spring sky. As you see, the maples in the valley are not leafed out yet, but a close look will show the red tinge of the flowers. Just before this shot was taken we saw a Golden Eagle soaring over the pond. 🙂

Canon SX20IS at 28mm equivalent. F4.0 @ 1/640th @ ISO 80. Landscape program.

Recovery for the sky in Lighroom. Added Clarity and just a smidge of Vibrance. Blackpoint to the right. Sharpen Landscape preset. Cropped from the top for composition.

From the very small Sky Hy collection.
