As I scan back over my “recent” posts, I realize that the way I opened my last post could just as easily be the opening for this one. I started my last blog post by saying:
“Sometimes things just happen and the next thing you know, two weeks have gone by without a blog post. [...]
This is really a continuation of my last post here. Same trip to Longwood Gardens (Kennett Square, PA). Same camera – my Canon 30D. Same Lensbaby Composer but with the Soft Focus Optic rather than the Plastic one and using the +4 Macro filter from the Lensbaby Macro kit. I might add that while I [...]
Barb and I spent Sunday morning in the conservatory at Longwood Gardens (Kennett Square, PA). This was the first weekend of the annual orchid extravaganza, an event we have visited and photographed each of the past four years. While orchids are the focus, they are by no means the only show in town. As always, [...]
Tack sharp! How often have we heard those words used to describe an image? And how much have we wanted to hear those words used to describe our images? We post an image and someone comments that the image is “tack sharp” and a sudden glow comes over us. But those of you who know [...]
As I mentioned in my prior post, last Saturday began with Barb and I making our way into a hilltop church cemetery in Durham Township (PA), she to look for the barn owl reported there and I to hopefully photograph a sunrise over the foggy valley below. It was a very chilly morning with temps [...]
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 [...]
