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.

Photo Friday: Adding Drama with Clouds

May 1, 2015

Today’s picture is devoted to clouds.  Clouds can add drama, mood, and can help lead your eyes in a certain direction.  It can make an ordinary picture unique, and no matter how many times you take the same subject, you will never get the same picture thanks to clouds.  So, if you’re the type who waits for a sunny day to take out the camera, don’t.  You’ll get more interesting shots if you just include clouds.

Photo Friday, On Thursday

January 22, 2015

Starting tomorrow, I was planning on starting something called Photo Friday.  Unfortunately, we will not have the internet starting tonight, for a few days, so I have chosen a picture I took last summer that I thought you would all like, of the Portland, Maine skyline with queen anne’s lace in the foreground, during sunset.  I hope you enjoy.  I hope to be back online shortly.

Urban Waterfall

November 24, 2012

It’s been a while since I posted one of my photos, but I took this one yesterday, and it was so special to me I felt the need to post it.  I hope you all enjoy it.  I decided it would look better in Black and white.
