Two Perspectives

Two different perspectives of the Jesup Path in Acadia National Park from yesterday's visit. With at least three feet of snow on the path - snowshoes are required! I decided to head out a little before sunset to maximize the golden hour. That didn't pan out, the clouds blew through before the sun reached the golden light. Not to fear, the Jesup Path always has interesting photographic subjects. First, taken about three feet from the ground with a wide angle (16 mm). The starkness of the bare trees against the vibrant cloud filled sky compelled me to capture the scene. Second, looking up a tree with a small telephoto lens (85 mm). I really enjoyed the mushroom patterns scattered over the birchbark trunk. There you have it, changing perspective allows for alternative subjects/compositions. To learn how to create images like these, consider attending one of my nature photography workshops in Acadia National Park.
