First Look Photo: First Frost

October 19, 2016

This week, here in Portland, Maine we saw the first frost of the season.  I consider that a great time to get a few foliage shots.

Here’s one I got as a result.

Photo Friday: Don’t put the camera away.

December 4, 2015

I will never understand the idea of putting the camera away as soon as all the leaves have fallen, before Winter.  Every season has something different, and beautiful, to offer to every photographer, whether amateur or professional.

If at any time you feel there is a total lack of subjects, just look closer.  The macro world has an unlimited supply of subjects.  Today’s photos show some of the detailed beauty that can be found only by getting a little closer.

These photos were taken with my Canon 7D Mark II, and edited in Adobe Lightroom.  The only exception is the squirrel, which was taken with a Canon SX610HS.

Photo Friday: No Better Artist

February 6, 2015

One of the reasons; and I can say the main reason, I chose nature photography is that I have never seen a painting, sculpture, or the work of any artist that can come close to the beauty nature has given us.  Today’s photographs were taken at the marina behind our home.

During this time of the year, ice forms on the water, and with the rising and lowering of the tides, the ice breaks, and refreezes in very interesting patterns.  These patterns show a beautiful display of texture.

Here then are the two photographs I took this afternoon.

A Matter of Perspective

April 13, 2012

One of the greatest abilities humans have is to see something in a random pattern.  With this picture, I was working in the frozen foods section when I saw what looked like a black and white picture of Casco Bay, complete with rocks, the water, a ship, and an island.  I took the picture, then realized that it wasn’t a picture at all, but a metal plate with frost that had developed in a strange pattern.
