As Spring speeds towards Summer, the Winter birds have gone away, except this eider.  He will soon join the migration away from here.

The northern blue jay is almost identical to its southern relatives, only in a much paler blue.

First Look Photo: Shooting Bugles

May 31, 2017

This week I found a flower I’ve never seen.  It was tiny, purple, and clustered.  I did the usual research and found nothing in the books.  I finally found it on the internet.  It’s a flower called a blue bugle, and it grows wild in England and Ireland, but seems to enjoy the atmosphere of Maine.

Photo Friday: Dramatic Cloud Formations

March 24, 2017

I think I’ve said it before, but I love cloud formations.  In a recent unit in my school they talked about stockpiling images of clouds for use as backgrounds of architecture photography, if the sky is uneventful.  This is what today’s shot is for.

First Look Photo: Moving Forward

December 14, 2016

I’ve never made it a secret that my eventual goal is to be a photographer for National Geographic, however they’re not going to knock down my door with offers if they don’t know I exist, so there has to be some steps taken to get my name out there.  I will never stop with the nature photography, but I also need to get other types of photography in there, if only to teach me some valuable lessons in lighting and composition.

My first step is product photography.  It’s a good market to step into, and it could possibly serve to pay me in the end.

Today’s photo is one of those shots.  It is one of my wife’s go to products, and I thought it would be great photographed in my light tent.

Yes, I know I forgot to remove the fur on top.  lol

Photo Friday: The Last Heron

November 11, 2016

Every Spring we get a visit from migrating herons and egrets, which I enjoy photographing.  These beautiful birds stay through the Summer, and head back South during the Fall, when the weather gets colder.

This week I had the privilege of seeing, what I believe, to be the last hold out, before it leaves for warmer climates.  I left space to convey its lonely state, and the rocks to provide a little balance.  I also love the way the ripples played with its reflection.
