Sometimes, you just feel the need to go back into your photo archives and edit some previously untouched pics. Such was the case tonight. It was far too cold outside to go take some new pics -we’re also supposed to be getting some snow overnight as well-, so I thought I would go and see what I could play around with. I found the following pics I took back in May 2016 during my trip up to Bar Harbor.
I also found a pair of pics from my visit up to Halibut Point State Park at the beginning of the month to edit. The final shot was one I took a look at and decided not to do too much revising to (only a few instances of dust on the sensor were removed). I loved the fading sunset far off in the distance that still managed to highlight a little bit of the frozen water -despite still being in the mid 50s at the time I took the photo- and the darkness that had blanketed the area. Looking at the picture, you can almost sense the silence that encompassed the park.
I am happy to announce that my fourth book of photography, Here, There and Elsewhere, is now available for purchase on Blurb.com! A collection of photos taken over the past few years, Here, There and Elsewhere is my most ambitious book to date, one I hope you will enjoy. To order the book, or simply check out a preview of it, click here.
An eBook edition of Here, There and Elsewhere is currently in production and should be available by the end of November.
This morning, I headed up to York, Maine to participate in the Walk To End Alzheimer’s (The walk raised a phenomenal $76,000. Awesome work, Maine!). Since I was going to be in the area, I figured I would get up early, head over to one of my favorite haunts – Nubble Lighthouse- and take some pics of the sunrise. Alas, it was more of a “fog rise” than anything else. Luckily for me, a foggy morning on the coast of New England is something I truly like. Especially when taking some pics.
Color pics are great, but I have missed taking shots that I would process in black and white. A foggy morning where sunlight was practically nonexistent was the perfect opportunity to delve back into the ol’ B&W while playing around a bit with the images.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them.
A very happy World Photography Day 2018! Here’s a shot from my trip up to Boothbay Harbor in Maine back in late April, 2018.
Before the summer crowds descend upon the state of Maine, I thought I would take the opportunity to head up to Boothbay Harbor and Pemaquid Point to take some pics of the area. I only went up for one day, but the trip was well worth it. The people are wonderful and the sights along the coast are breathtaking. If you head up to the area at any point, be sure to make the Pemaquid Point State Park and Ocean Point in Boothbay a priority in terms of visits. You’ll be glad you did.
