The view from the mountain!  I thought I’d get some super bright colors but I was wrong, but the one mile hike up and down was great!

Next time – STAR shots!

Brilliant Skies and Calm Waters – 06-24-2018

I was sitting in my living room when I saw the light outside changing.  I chase the light often, and I had a good feeling.  Off I went!

I literally jogged to the river last night.  I’d turn, snap a few pictures.  Jog while fiddling with settings.  Turn.  Snap a few pictures.

It’s rare we get those great purples up here, and getting the cast reflection from the sky on the rail was an interesting endeavor!

They sky changes quickly.  One minute you see purples, the next the sky is on fire with orange and reds.

I finally got off the tracks and started the 2nd leg of my job down the potato field road to the water.

06-16-2018–Backyard Moments

Sometimes your back yard, and a mile radius hands you beauty, you just have to take the time to look.

Another night and another great sunset – and a few up close pics of those lovely purple flowers that litter our back yard and from the previous evenings moon rising.

05-30-2018–Sunsets and Church

I happen to be fortunate enough to live just down the street from a great old church that boasts the BEST Angels on its twin towers.

I also happen to get to see some of the best sunsets Northern Maine has to offer from my back yard.

I had some visitors.  I’ve been working on camera settings a lot lately.

We just recently purchase the property next door, the one that I began my life at.  The old occupant – left behind some stuff… Including

An old disco ball (a mini)

The first photo below is the view to the west, the next is the view to the east.  They look nothing alike.

I’ve been playing around with more focus, and depth of field, aperture, etc.  Sometimes finding a good subject to practice on is difficult, other times you need to make things up.

And  then, the sky changed.  It moved from dark and foreboding to pink and glorious.
