Photographing Waterfalls....

In late May I paid a visit to Andover and the West Branch of The Ellis River to photograph waterfalls. Above is one of the photos I took. While there I also filmed a video, for a better sense of the area and to view more photos I took that day, watch the video on Youtube, here's the link: Photographing waterfalls.

Bluebird Visitor...

This past Monday a bluebird was checking out a nest box I set out specifically to attract bluebirds. Now I'm hoping they actually use it to raise some young so I can get better photographs, they checked it out last year but chose not to utilize it. When a pair of chickadees started building a nest in the box, the bluebirds chased them off and the house remained empty.

No Photo But.....

I haven’t taken many photos this summer but I went kayaking on Merrymeeting Bay while I was on vacation back in June. I brought my video camera with me and got the video edited and posted to Youtube the other day. Check it out here: Kayaking on Merrymeeting Bay.

Night Time Sentry....

I came up with the idea to shoot this image last year but before I did I saw a photo like it on someone else's website. I didn't want it to seem like I was copying an unoriginal idea so I never took the photograph. This year I reconsidered because even though it's the same subect, everyone has there own way of seeing things. Last Monday after work I drove to Land's End to take the picture. This is a blend of two images, one with the lens focused at infinity for the milkyway and the second focused on the statue. For the statue I used live view and zoomed in on the head and by lighting it up with my flashlight I was able to see to get a sharp focus. Both exposures were 30 seconds at f2.8, there's a building right behind me and behind the building there was a street light providing enough ambient light to illuminate the statue.

One Of My Favorite Places...

Sabattus River is one of my favorite places to photograph. It doesn't matter how many times I go there I always find something new to take a picture of.

Shine On....

The moon rising over the Cribwork Bridge in Harpswell. This bridge was built in 1927 and is the only one of its kind in the world, the gaps in the stones allow for the ebb and flow of the tides.

Spring Blossom....

Last weekend I took a walk on the Papermill Trail in Lisbon Falls and discovered huge masses of trout lilies but they were unopened. I went back on Wednesday morning thinking they may have started blooming, but again, nothing but buds. The weather has been cool and rainy all week so maybe that has something to do with it. I'll check them out this weekend to see if they're progressed any further. I did find this marsh marigold in bloom.

Unexpected Snow....

Tuesday morning we had an unexpected snow storm enter the area so I went out and took some images of my snow covered daffodils. The snow had melted by the next day.
