11-10-2020–End of the Day

I ended my workday at home, and just as I was coming into Lille, the sky turned some gorgeous hues.

11-09-2020–My Office

When you do homecare, your car is your office.  I choose to see this as a positive.  When I was in Hancock County I would often find different places to park to call my pts for the next day. 

20201109_150053-220201109_150101-220201109_154236-2

I went into a pts home and the sky was the prefect blue – so I took out my Rebel and took a snap.

Then, coming out, an hour later – the colors began to surface.

I drove 2 miles down the road to the boat landing, snapped a few photos and then called all my pts. 

Around & About

I bring my camera w/me when I drive, why?  Well, I drive a LOT!

These lovely geese were congregating around a great little pond.

This is the sunset during my last week, the haze was making the sun seem super blazy.

A blueberry field that looked spectacular against the blue of the sky and the green of the trees.

I went for a final walk on Roque’s Bluff Beach (well, for now!)

The sun was warm, it was quiet.  I just hung out. 

IMG_2448-2IMG_2414IMG_2415IMG_2446IMG_2448

Then I saw this guy way off in the distance.  So I made my way over and watched him fish, and pluck, and eat.

 IMG_2462IMG_2454IMG_2455IMG_2459IMG_2450

Then, the sun began to set and the haze started to settle in.  All and all, I can’t say it was a bad day!

Sunflowers & Sunsets–08-19-2020

Some random photos from Lubec to Northern Maine

IMG_2099IMG_2078IMG_2079IMG_2080IMG_2081IMG_2084IMG_2085IMG_2089IMG_2093IMG_2094IMG_2095

On the drive up from Machias I came across a field of sunflowers and the sky made a great contrast.

IMG_2112IMG_2113IMG_2114IMG_2116IMG_2123IMG_2124

On my drive to Machias, there is this oddly interesting tree – w/a single tiger lilly under it.  I thought it would make for a few good photos.

IMG_2125IMG_2126

Just a deer along my drive.

IMG_2129IMG_2130IMG_2133IMG_2134IMG_2135IMG_2136IMG_2137IMG_2138IMG_2139IMG_2139-2IMG_2153IMG_2140IMG_2147IMG_2148IMG_2148-2IMG_2151

I decided after work, you know, on a day of 150 miles driven – to go for a drive.  I ended up in Lubec and a fiery sunset ensued. 

IMG_2194IMG_2202IMG_2203IMG_2205IMG_2206IMG_2207IMG_2208IMG_2209IMG_2210IMG_2214IMG_2215IMG_2216IMG_2217IMG_2218IMG_2211IMG_2223IMG_2219

More sunflowers!  This time in Grand Isle, near Misty Meadows.  I wanted to see what sort of gauzy effect I could achieve and I think I did a decent job on a few. 

Weekly Update–8.15.2020

I do think I’m going to try and do a weekly format, unless I go out and do a big night shoot or something.  I have to get into the habit of bringing my Rebel w/me while I work as well.

IMG_1982IMG_1959IMG_1962IMG_1964IMG_1967IMG_1972

It was sunny and hot in town.  I got to the beach and nope, fog!

IMG_1988IMG_1990IMG_1991IMG_2010IMG_1993IMG_1994IMG_1995IMG_1996IMG_1997IMG_1998IMG_2000IMG_2001IMG_2002IMG_2003IMG_2004IMG_2008IMG_2009

I decided that after a day of driving 153 miles, I needed to drive some more!  I’d yet to visit Beals.  So I took off and headed down, stopping on the way at anything that looked half interesting.  The light started to get dusky early that evening.  It made for some dramatic lighting.

IMG_2026IMG_2021IMG_2022IMG_2024IMG_2025IMG_2029IMG_2027IMG_2028

I headed out the next night and hit up Machiasport.  Driving some of the Bold Coast roads.  I can’t get really good sunset photos as the coast is facing in that direction.

On the way home Friday, there is a field of Sunflowers in Van Buren, so had to stop for a quick photo op!

IMG_2039IMG_2040IMG_2041IMG_2042IMG_2043IMG_2044IMG_2046IMG_2077IMG_2047IMG_2048IMG_2049IMG_2051IMG_2056IMG_2060IMG_2061IMG_2064IMG_2068IMG_2069IMG_2072

I got home Friday, and the sun began to turn the sky pink, and orange and purple.  I jumped in the car and drove down to the island.  I got a few good snaps. 

08-01-2020–The Machias Move

I got a new job, In Machias Maine.  So that meant – moving!  Jules came down w/me to move me in.  We explored the area, and drove around on the Bold Coast byway. 

IMG_1828IMG_1814IMG_1817IMG_1820IMG_1822IMG_1827

Then we swung into a beach in Jonesboro!

IMG_1831IMG_1900IMG_1848IMG_1854IMG_1857IMG_1865IMG_1868IMG_1879IMG_1888IMG_1891IMG_1892IMG_1899

Then we ended up at Roque’s Bluff – which is our fave area.  It’s about 20 mins from my new apartment as well.

IMG_1903IMG_1905IMG_1906IMG_1909IMG_1914IMG_1912

Then we did a quick stop at the falls in town, and headed home!

07-28-2020–Thunder and Sunsets

We have had so little rain this year, that the ground is bone dry.  We were graced with some rain and a nice sunset a few evenings ago. 

IMG_1403IMG_1404IMG_1406IMG_1407IMG_1408IMG_1410IMG_1411IMG_1417IMG_1416IMG_1415IMG_1412IMG_1413

Then the lightning danced in a cloud and I got to have some fun playing with shutter speeds and then editing the photos.  Shooting in raw means you have to process that photo.  The color of the clouds were electric purple and wicked pinks.  I think I did a good job of bringing it out.  The first photo is of the cloud NOT lit by the lightning.

6.26.2020–Backyard Sunset

At first, I didn’t think it would be much of a sunset, but I was wrong.

IMG_0881IMG_0882IMG_0883IMG_0884IMG_0885

Had a lot of pinks, and purples, and blue skies. 

IMG_0886IMG_0889IMG_0888IMG_0891IMG_0892IMG_0898IMG_0903IMG_0899

As it got darker, the colors got deeper.

06-24-2020–Sunsets, R&R Tracks and Wicked Skies

The camera, at times, can catch more than what the eye can see.  Like the milkway, for example.  I don’t over saturate or over HRD my photos, I try and keep them as close to what I see as possible. 

IMG_0854IMG_0855

I played with my settings and let in more/less light for different shots. 

IMG_0858IMG_0859IMG_0860IMG_0861IMG_0862

This sometimes allows me to get a deeper color in my photos without having to drag those sliders way over into “that’s to much” land.

06-15-2020–20 Mins of sunset photos!

The light started to change and I ventured out into the back yard to take a few photos – all of these were taken w/in 20 or so minutes and all in my back yard.

IMG_0765IMG_0766IMG_0767IMG_0770

A few shots of the Iris’ and the blooms on Jules apple tree.

IMG_0775IMG_0779

The potato fields right out back from my house. 

IMG_0780-2IMG_0780IMG_0785IMG_0781IMG_0783

There is our super humble abode – and a wickedly awesome sunset.

IMG_0786IMG_0787IMG_0788IMG_0789

I had to lighten these up a little to get the details out Smile

IMG_0792IMG_0795IMG_0790IMG_0791

Moving into the side yard – when the light started to change again. 

IMG_0801IMG_0797IMG_0798IMG_0796

My beloved railroad tracks.  And, hello there, Canada.

IMG_0804IMG_0805IMG_0806

And lastly, my fence.  I wasn’t ever planning on putting up a fence but – you know – unruly neighbors – but no that it’s there, I love it!  It gives me a fun spot to take photos off and giving me some contrast and texture in my photos.
