    Sunrise, Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park, Maine

    09.09.09 | Permalink | 3 Comments

    Hey everybody,

    I’m working hard to catch up on my processing, and am beginning to go through images from Maine in June. The summit of Cadillac Mountain, the highest point in Acadia National Park, is a fantastic place to photograph at sunrise. It was completely socked in with fog down at sea level, but I figured there was still a chance of having good conditions up there. I’m glad I made that choice!

    Screw Auger Falls, Gulf Hagas Preserve, Maine

    Hey everybordy,

    It has been a while, I know! I’ve been extremely busy since returning from Maine, and haven’t had much time to shoot or work on the computer! I’m wrapping up with processing my Maine shots, and here’s one I’d like to share with you all. Ian and I hiked the Gulf Hagas Preserve, in the north woods of Maine, on a cold and wet day. Luckily, the cold weather kept the blackflies away. However, the mosquitoes were in full force! This was the first waterfall we encountered, Screw Auger Falls, and it was by far my favorite.

    Puffin Preen, Machias Seal Island, Maine, USA (Or is it Nova Scotia, Canada? Depends on who you ask.)

    Continuing with the theme of posting photos from my Maine outing, here’s a favorite of mine from Machias Seal Island. Ian Plant and I went out with Bold Coast Charters on a puffin tour to the island. We left out of Cutler, Maine and had absolutely perfect sea conditions for the hour long ride each way. Once we got on the island, it was ninety minutes of non-stop shutter clicking. I shot about 2000 exposures! We had excellent conditions with a light overcast cloud cover, and the wind coming from behind us, so I shot tons of portraits, head shots, group shots, and even some flight images that I’m really excited to process.

    Anyhow, I’m tired and don’t feel like writing much at the moment, so I’ll shut up and post the picture :-) That’s all you guys are here for, riiiiight?

    Cadillac Mountain Sunset, Acadia National Park, Maine

    06.14.09 | Permalink | 3 Comments

    Hey everybody,

    I just got home yesterday, and the processing begins! Here’s a shot I just worked up. I had been out birding all day, and the clouds looked pretty bad. I went out to shoot sunset anyways, just in case, and I’d say it was pretty nice. I’m gonna keep this one brief, since I’ll be assisting on my man Joe’s one-day Great Falls workshop in about four hours.

    Hey everybody,

    I lost the power cable to my laptop. I’ll catch up with you all when I get home!

    Maine Day 3: Black-throated Green Warbler in breeding plumage, Acadia National Park, Maine

    06.05.09 | Permalink | 5 Comments

    Hey everybody,

    You know what? I really like doing an entry every day when I’m on multiple day outings. I don’t really like having to try to process images on my laptop, but I enjoy taking the time each evening to write one of these up.

    Anyhow, today was a pretty good day. There was no dramatic light to be witnessed at sunrise nor sunset. All day long, there was a thin layer of high altitude clouds that basically acted as a diffuser for the sun. So, naturally, only one thing was on my mind. SONGBIRDS ALL DAY! I didn’t have the best luck with them today, but the ones that worked were amazing. I found this Black-throated Green Warbler that was a blast to work with. With all honesty, I probably got 5-8 keeper images of him today. Here’s one that was simple enough to process on the laptop.

    Maine Day 2: Sunrise from Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park, Maine

    06.04.09 | Permalink | 2 Comments

    Well, today was a heck of a day! I got up and left at 4:00AM to catch a lovely 4:45 sunrise. I then spent the rest of the day chasing warblers, which was mostly a bust besides one good American Redstart. I also did a good amount of scouting during the day, and found some nice cooperative birds to try and go back to in better light.

    Anyhow, I shot this scene with a GND filter, but I also bracketed exposures to blend when I get home. Regardless, this isn’t my final version of the shot, but here’s what I worked up on my craptop!

    Maine Day 1: Sunset Layers, Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park, Maine

    06.03.09 | Permalink | 5 Comments

    Hey everybody,

    I’ve just completed my first full day of shooting in Maine. It went pretty well, by my standards at least. I went out looking for birds this morning and during a brief cloudy stint this afternoon. The highlight was certainly an extremely cooperative Black-throated Green Warbler. I found tons of spots with tons of different birds for me to go back to. I’m really making an effort to get some songbirds out here, especially with all of the cloudy skies the Maine coast so graciously has to offer.

    Anyway, I got caught up with the birds, and lost track of time. I had been planning a hike for sunset. I hurried from where I was birding to the summit of Cadillac Mountain, and caught the last 15 minutes of a pretty nice light show. I have some wide angle shots as well, but they require a blend, which I’m not equipped to do on my laptop. So, here’s a telephoto shot. Once again, please excuse the laptop processing.

    Bull Moose

    08.21.08 | Permalink | 3 Comments

    I took this photo in early June as well, up in Maine. I was at Sandy Stream Pond, in Baxter State Park, Maine. I had completely overlooked this image, just like the rainbow I posted earlier. I had just written off my attempts at photographing a Bull Moose as a failure. I now feel differently about the matter.

    Rainbow over Sentinel Mountain

    Here’s one from early June. This photograph was taken just outside of Baxter State Park, Maine. I’ve been going through my files and working up the images I overlooked the first time around editing images from the trip. I guess when I first saw this image I didn’t like the fact that the rainbow seems to be split in two.

    There’s a bit of a funny story behind this one. I almost missed this shot because of how hard I hit my head when getting out of my car. I’m clumsy at times…
