Miss Angie II.....

Here's another boat photo from the coastal trip I took earlier this summer. These boats were in Lubec and like the other posts from this trip I also uploaded a video to Youtube that can be seen by clicking this link: Coastal Trip pt. 3.

Here's another image from the coastal trip I took earlier this summer. It was taken in Stonington, Maine at sunset. As I've mentioned before, I took a lot of video of the trip and I even filmed the sequence where I took this photo. You can check out the whole video here on Youtube.

Here's another photo from the multi-day road trip up the coast of Maine I recently took with my friend Mike, photography being our main purpose. The lighting during the day was very harsh and contrasty which makes photography tricky but a lot of times an image will look good in black and white under these conditions. That's what I opted for with this photo. This is Grindstone Point in Winter Harbor. At the time we didn't know where we were but I looked it up after the fact. The hill in the distance is Acadia National Park. I also shot a lot of video and if interested you can check it out here: on Youtube

Aurora...?

I went out last night attempting to photograph the northern lights and this is what I got. I couldn't see anything with the naked eye but the camera picked up those light colored swirls in the upper right. They could be clouds for all I know, but at least I got a shooting star in the center. Fort Kent in far northern Maine would've been the place to be to get some good images.

Cold Stream Falls....

I recently spent a weekend hiking and camping in my van in West Forks, Maine. It was the new moon weekend and the objective was to do some astrophotography but unfortunately the clouds moved in making that a no go. I was with my friend Mike and we ended up climbing Coburn Mt. and hiking into Cold Stream Falls, which you see in the photo above. I also shot a video while I was there and it can be seen on Youtube by clicking here.

Overnight Camping in My Van....

I recently took a trip north to camp in my van for a night. The autumn colors were almost at peak. Even though I didn’t take any photographs because the weather conditions didn’t quite cooperate, I did manage to shoot some video footage. I did put together a Youtube video that can be checked out by clicking here

Tent by Fire Light.......

Here's another photo from the Seboomook camping trip. This didn't come out how I had envisioned because the next campsite over had a fire going so it lit up the whole area cancelling out the light from inside the tent. Not everything goes as planned.

Off Grid...

I just spent some time in northern Maine on the north edge of Moosehead Lake. I camped out of my van which I recently bought just for that purpose. I stayed in a place called Seboomook Wilderness Campground, it had some amenities but internet was not one of them and I must say I enjoyed it. Being that far north light pollution is almost non-existent so it's an ideal location for astrophotography. This photo was taken near the boat launch where the campgrounds canoes are stored.

A Departure For Me.....

Last Friday marked the 10th anniversary of the creation of this blog. In keeping with it's name every single photograph I've posted in the last 10 years has been taken in the state of Maine. Today I've decided to depart from that at least with this post. Back in early October I took a trip to New Mexico to explore and photograph the Bisti/De-Za-Nin wilderness area. This was my second trip there, going for the first time back in 2016. This area is very remote and you won't run into many people, my kid of trip, it's also a black and white photographers paradise. The interesting rock formations, hills and hoodoos provide plenty of shapes and tones to get very creative with. The two photos posted here were both taken during blue hour, in this case, after the sun had set. I also shot some video and just posted some footage on Youtube. Give it a watch to get a better sense of the place, to give it a view just click here: Bisti Video. Here's to another 10 years of posting to this blog.

Wide Angle Waterfall....

After photographing the sunflowers and corn field, as seen in the previous post, I headed to my original destination. It's the same area I was on Memorial day and this image was taken on Labor day so I book ended the summer at the same location. The water was flowing a little less so I was able to access this particular cascade. With a higher water flow it's tough to navigate the narrow gorge where this fall appears unless you're wearing waders.

Sunflowers and Corn Field...

Earlier this month I took a ride to Andover to photograph the Ellis River by the Cascade Trail. On the way there I passed this scene and had to pull over and grab some shots.

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.
