First Look Photo: Rarely Seen Animal

November 22, 2017

In Maine, it is said that people can live here their entire lives and never see a rabbit.  The reason for this is simple. Eastern cottontail rabbits, like foxes, are primarily nocturnal. On occasion one might be seen during the day, but that is an extremely rare occurrence.  I found this rabbit on my way into work the other night.

Before the city of Portland paved their roads, the streets were made of brick, and I found a pot hole that revealed this fact clearly.

Ghosting is a great special effect using much slower shutter speeds to blur the action of someone walking.  This one was taken at 1/20 second.

Moss on a fallen tree can be so beautiful, especially in a fern forest.

Here is the current level of the eclipse in Portland.  I just thought it would be interesting.

I love festivals, especially those featuring local restaurants.  The Noonan Family Ranch from Maine has prepared some delectable lamb shish kebabs for the Old Port Festival.

Photo Friday: Majestic Birds

June 2, 2017

This time of the year is perfect for capturing snowy egrets, and one finally got close enough for me to get a great shot.  If you’ve ever tried to shoot these birds, and ended up with a white blob, the secret is to under expose it by one stop; it makes all the difference.

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.
