Workshop Participant’s Photos

  Here is a selection of my favorite shots from the Maine Coast photography workshop I just completed for Santa Fe Photography Workshops in Acadia National Park. We had a really good group of people- enthusiastic, excited and very tolerant of the variable weather. I will be doing this workshop again next year, again with […]

Water Swirls

This water swirl is a classic photo composition that is really easy to do but hard to get a really nice one. While I like this photo it could be better. I’ll critique my own photo for you: Notice that the swirl is a bit ragged looking. This is because the shutter speed was only […]

Happiness in 200′ of Water

Duck Brook is a stream that is about a mile long that drains the beaver ponds at Witch’s Hole in Acadia National Park and runs steeply down to the coast. The first 200 feet of the stream cascades down gently sloping rocks that are covered in dark moss and algae making access  to any part […]

Duck Brook

Duck Brook in Acadia National Park is a favorite stream on mine and has rewarded me repeatedly over the 30 years of photographing it. This year the red maples above the stream had magnificent color so the leaves that came down in the stream were great. This is my favorite photograph from this stream.

Beyond the Fall Cliche

I realize that everyone wants the big beautiful Fall landscape shot but there is more to the Fall than big landscapes. If you look around and look small there are lots of other possibilities for magnificent photos literally right under foot. Looking small and looking away from the expected is especially important if you happen […]

I took this photo with my phone (because it was the only camera I had with me when scouting this trail). I took the class back and lots of people got great shots of the leaves and reflection I am happy to report. Perfect day, no wind, blue sky- all I really needed was a […]

Beaver Pond Sunset

The one and only good sunset we had in Acadia National Park last week we photographed in a beaver pond! I know, not the usual sunset location but the light was really nice and the longer we lingered the prettier the scene became. Here is a sequence of beaver pond sunset shots covering 15 minutes […]

Favorite shot from Maine

Just got back from teaching my Santa Fe Workshops Maine Coast workshop. We had spectacular color this year, as good as I can remember. I wasn’t photographing much and the shots I did take I either took with my phone or my little point and shoot but I managed to get some good ones. This […]

New England Fall Color report- 2

Posted by on Oct 6, 2015 in Articles | One Comment

It’s been about a week and the fall color has progressed but not by much. I took a trip across the mountains a couple of days ago and while there were pockets of color high in the Green Mts there is still very little every where else. This part of the season is what I […]
