May 30, 2018

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

First Look Photo: The Last Drop

March 7, 2018

Here’s a shot I took for a challenge on depth of field.  It didn’t make it as the final image, but I still like the result, and the focus on the water drop.

First look Photo: In the Mist

January 10, 2018

Thanks to the sub-zero temperatures, recently, Casco Bay has been shrouded in a mist of sea smoke.  This shot was taken during a temperature of -6.  The mist wasn’t quite so heavy, and looked almost haunting.

First Look Photo: Slow Shutter Speed

November 1, 2017

I wanted to give a waterfall a little more ethereal look, so I lowered the shutter speed to 5 seconds.

You don’t need to have a lot of elements to make a nice photograph, just the right elements.

On my walk home from my new job I cross the Casco Bay Bridge.  This is the view from the Bridge.

I just love how the clouds have a touch of color from the morning sun.

The ducks in this area have made a permanent home in this area, and it makes for some interesting pictures.

Photo Friday: A Splash of Color

November 25, 2016

I just love those photographs that are black and white, and the photographer adds a little color to the image.  As the Fall color change comes to an end, this effect is happening naturally.  In today’s photo I found a baby tree growing in a small body of water.  The reflections contrasted perfectly with the orange leaves of the baby tree.

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.
