We always headquarter our visits to Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor. Always the same hotel. Always the same room. After 12 years, we are extremely comfortable there. It is truly our home away from home when visiting Acadia.
Sunset comes early in October which begs the question of what to do in the evenings. [...]
When “normal” people go on vacation they tend to sleep late in the mornings. When a photographer goes on vacation, it is not unusual for us to be up every morning well before sunrise so we can get to a great spot to photograph the dawning of a new day. If there was any chance [...]
Of all the places in the park, we probably made more return visits to the Eagle Lake area than any other. With every passing year (we’ve been visiting annually since 1999), I find I am more and more attracted to diversity of the area. We just love it.
This first image came from our first [...]
Fall is kind of an unusual time for me. I love the colors as the leaves change but I love them from afar. The closer I get to them, the less I like them. That’s when the eye starts to notice the imperfections in the leaves and you start to see those holes where light [...]
And I am hoping that at some of you missed me! Barb and I just returned from two weeks in Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, Maine. As you would expect from a fairly lengthy visit, there were great days and some just okay days. The biggest factor that we had to deal with was [...]
It was a tough weekend. Between some lousy weather and other commitments, I didn’t get a single image made this weekend. So today I started to look forward to our October 2010 trip to Acadia National Park (ME) and reflect back on our last visit in June 2009. I looked through some of my images [...]
This is another example of going back to rework an image that I didn’t feel could stand on its own. This image was made shortly after sunrise on the Cobble Beach off of Ocean Drive in Acadia National Park back during our June vacation. I had finished a series of images of Otter Cliffs from [...]
(Three exposure composite 1/15 sec @ f/11; ISO 640; 0 EV; FL 24mm and two other exposures at +1 and -1 EV.)
Another image resurrected from our June trip to Acadia. This is one of a series of beautiful stone bridges hand made by Mr. John D. Rockefeller Jr.’s workmen along the carriage roads [...]
I really need some help with this one. I’m really not sure what to make of this image.
The original image is from our trip to Acadia back in June. This time we were a day early and a dollar short rather than a day a late. The day after we hiked [...]
It’s more like a detailed example.
I have had several requests for more information on how I make my HDR images and I promised to post the details at some later date. I guess this is that later date. I will tell you now that there is a “black box” stage in producing the images [...]
