Counting down the days until vacation. At last. It’s been 15 months since our last visit to Acadia National Park (ME). We visited in June in both 2008 and 2009 so that I could photograph the Puffins on Machias Seal Island and the Lupines all around Acadia and Mount Desert Island. This year it is [...]
I’m a morning person. There is no doubt about it! Been a morning person practically my whole life and, at this late age, I don’t see that changing any. So what can I say? I have come to love sunrises. And I love photographing them. Each one is different in some way or another.
This past weekend (and thank God we have another coming up) turned out to be an excellent one, photographically speaking. I’ve already shared two images from last Saturday (A Reflection Upon a Reflection and Just for Fun) here on my blog and have a couple more that I will share in this post… and I [...]
In a recent post, Why No People?, I attempted to answer the question why there are so seldom any people in my images. What it all comes down to is that I like the personal feeling that my images represent to me. It is me at one with nature. I am alone in my world. [...]
Why aren’t there any people in my images? That is a question that I was recently asked.
Truth be told, it’s not that I don’t ever have people in my images but it is extremely rare. And I will go to great lengths to work around people and keep my images people-free. Sometimes my work [...]
When we went to bed Sunday night we had no definitive plans for Monday. I awoke around 0330 and as I lay in bed, what to do became crystal clear. I thought back to Thursday, the day I made the sunrise abstracts. I set out that morning to make some vertical sunrise images at Lake [...]
Yesterday I was up at 0400 and out of the house by 0420 in search of a sunrise to shoot. When looking for as close to sure thing as I can find, I always seem to return to the marina at Lake Nockamixon (Nockamixon State Park, Bucks County, PA). And yesterday was no exception. I [...]
This is the follow-up to my previous post highlighting the sunrise images from the weekend.
This first sunset image is one that I had been thinking about all week. I knew what I wanted to do or at least try. I wanted to make sunset (and sunrise) images using the Lensbaby with the Fisheye optic. [...]
This has been quite the crazy weekend. Nothing really went as planned and yet as I sit here on Sunday evening, everything appears to be ending well. And for that I am thankful.
Virtually all my photography this weekend involved very short jaunts (it’s about a 20-25 minute drive) to a local lake (Lake Nockamixon [...]
They go hand-in-hand. So often I find myself looking at a composition in the field or in-camera only to have some song title or lyric or musical genre come to mind. Here are two examples from this weekend past.
As soon as I saw this first image on the camera screen, the song “Stars on [...]
