A place I like to visit is Pineland Farms in New Gloucestor. They have a wonderful flower garden, it's very accesible and a good place to practice your flower photography. These images were taken last summer and I'm looking forward to going back again.
I took this image a couple of years ago at Reid State Park, it was taken during my favorite time to go to the beach, when no one else is there. This was the morning after a full moon and you can just make out the moon, through the haze, on the top of the photo just right of center. It was a very hot and humid day so later on this beach had wall to wall people on it.
My book is hot off the presses at Blurb! Take a sneak peek and place your order if you're so inclined by clicking on the cover photo above. An eBook version for download to your iPad or iPhone is now available in the iTunes store.
I live in Lewiston, Maine and have for most of my life. I've always had an interest in nature; as a kid I read books by Edwin Way Teal, Rachael Carson, among others, and I used to love studying the Golden Nature Guides. When I got into photography it was natural for me to take pictures of the natural world. A few years ago I got into kayaking and that allowed me to get to places I would never be able to by hiking and of course this gives me more photography oppurtunities. I realized years ago you don't have to travel to exotic locations to get good photographs. I have to admit I'm lucky to be living in a beautiful state with a lot of natural diversity, but I've taken good pictures right in my own back yard and neighborhood.
