Located in Acadia National Park, this is one of my favorite locations, anywhere! On the southeastern shoreline of Mount Desert Island, this rocky outcropping is a test of how well you can maintain your balance. The rocks are incredibly slippery, often I have had to crawl on my hands and knees to get to the edge of the rocks. On many visits, I never even set up my camera. Just sat back on a rock, watched the sunrise, listened to the calming sound of the ocean, closed my eyes and floated away.
Thanks to everyone who came to visit my exhibit at Lyndhurst. It was a beautiful and enjoyable weekend.
This picture is one of the famous Mormon Barns located in Grand Teton National Park. Most images one sees of the barn are singular and static. Not terribly interesting and doesn’t always give a sense of the place. As I mentioned in a prior post, when I was in the Tetons last, it was very smoky and hazy from several forest fires that were burning nearby. When I visited the barns I wanted to be able to tell the story of the place, the barn itself was secondary. I wandered a...way from the place that most other photographers were shooting and found a stream and tree that would complement the composition and help “tell the story” of the surrounding environment. I needed to squat down and position my tripod very low, halfway on an embankment, so that I could compose the scene as I wanted it. I got what I wanted and then proceeded to fall into the stream. Just another one of the stories of the “before, during and after” the shot.
It’s technically not Fall, but just a reminder that I will be at the Fall Crafts at Lyndhurst this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, September 15th, 16th and 17th. The show will be held at the beautiful Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, NY.
I hope you can join me as I exhibit some of my most recent photographic work. I am continuing my exhibition of 22 new large framed pictures printed on aluminum. If you have not seen metal prints before you are in for a treat. They are bold, be...autiful and dynamic; offering an almost three-dimensional view of the natural world. I will also have many new matted prints, as well as my notecard series. Show hours are:
Friday, September 15th from 10AM to 5PM
Saturday, September 16th from 10AM to 6PM
Sunday, September 17th from 10AM to 5PM
Rain or Shine- The forecast is pretty good for this weekend. But, should it sprinkle (it shouldn’t), I will be under the big tent, so no worries!!
For directions and other show information visit: Artrider Productions
If you have pre-ordered prints I will have them waiting at the exhibit. If you would like to pre-order an item please send an email to me.
Again, please note that for this show I will be located under the big tent.
I hope to see you this weekend!!
This is Latourell Falls located in the Columbia River Gorgee in #Oregon. While it looks like a simple scene, it was quite difficult, technically, to shoot. And keeping the mist from the waterfall off of my lens was also a real joy.
Imagine the ice cold water of Paradise Bay, Antarctica, hanging sideways over the edge of a zodiac, trying to hold a camera steady six inches above the water, all while instructing the zodiac driver, "a little to the left, now a little to the right, now back up a few inches." Priceless! This is not a reflection. Rather, it is the part of the iceberg below the surface!
#KickerRock or #LeonDormido is a beautiful rock formation near #SanCristobal Island in the Galápagos archipelago. Composing it along with some of the local wildlife makes it that much more interesting. It's as if the pelican is the guardian to the gateway.
The full moon setting over Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Shot from Clingman's Dome I originally went to this location to shoot the sunrise. Much to my surprise was this pumpkin in the sky.
Ricketts Glen State Park in #Pennsylvania is waterfall heaven. With over 22 named waterfalls, all unique, it is a place where you can get up close and personal with each one. This one is Tuscarora Falls, a 47-foot waterfall with lots of character.
