This blog post is based on a series of images that I posted on Facebook earlier this week. I entitled that series “Creativity Run Amok” and I am sure you will soon understand why. Over the course of my development as a photographer (a process that will continue for the rest of my life), I [...]
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. [...]
We’re half way through January already. I keep reading posts from friends saying what a great start to the year it has been for them and I feel jealous, envious, and somehow cheated. This year has started off very slowly for me. Knock out a week when I was laid up with a respiratory virus [...]
Anyone who follows this blog and/or visits my website knows I do my share of HDR photography. I find it very helpful when I have a combination of very bright highlights and very dark shadows in the same composition.

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.
