Snowy Sunset Lighthouse

Yet another image of the much over-photographed Bass Harbor Lighthouse. With Tuesday's two feet of snowfall followed by yesterday's ten inches, I thought the snow might add a bit of interest to this iconic scene.  

I setup for the classic shot of the lighthouse reflection in the tide pool.  After the sun dropped beneath the clouds, I noticed the waves and rocks bathed with golden light. Quickly I moved my tripod to incorporate the snow, waves, and sunset for a better than average scene. To learn how to create images like this, consider attending one of my landscape photography workshops in Acadia National Park.

Autumn's Plush Palette

I looked up during the 15 minute window of scattered clouds as the sky transitioned from cloudy to clear. It was a fun morning exploring this new location near Otter Cliffs and discovering the diversity of color pressing against the blue and white sky.

Dappled Autumn Foliage

Columbus Day weekend and the colors are right on cue. The overcast soft light was favorable for this shot looking up toward the Precipice.  My first day of photographing the autumn foliage this year, hopefully more color to come. To learn how to create images like this, consider attending one of my landscape photography workshops in Acadia National Park.

Supper's Sunset

While eating dinner, I look out the window and see puffy clouds. I don't think, I react - drop the fork, grab the tripod and drive to Jordan Pond. I love living in Acadia National Park (my backyard abuts the park), however this is my curse. I look up and see photographic opportunities all the time. Given all the curses in life, I'll gladly accept this one. On a few rare occasions, I'm rewarded with a sweet dessert! Enjoy. To learn how to create images like this, consider attending one of my landscape photography workshops in Acadia National Park.

Vernal Stream

I had a hunch there was more to photograph, after visiting this stream last year. So last weekend I returned to the area and hiked up and down this stream for three hours before discovering this cascade of small waterfalls. The unnamed stream is located in Acadia National Park and runs along Sargeant Drive in Northeast Harbor. I've only noticed water in the stream bed during the springtime runoff of rain and melting snow. While composing and shooting this shot, I envisioned this would be a black and white image. To learn how to create images like this, consider attending one of my landscape photography workshops in Acadia National Park.
