Preparing and packing for a flight to Maine tomorrow! The foliage report emails suggest that things are good, close to peak even! I'm excited to have a few days to explore and shoot before my first Acadia group comes in Wednesday. I am on a good photography weather streak lately it seems, and the weather forecast is looking great for at least the next week out! I tried to plan things earlier this year for better tides nearer sunsets and sunrises to avoid the messy and often un-pretty intertidal zone. As always I am looking forward to seeing a few old faces and a couple of new ones on this one as well!
A random stream, some fallen leaves and the breath of autumn closing in, these types of scenes are some of my favorite and it’s so rare I get to shoot them, wading in an ordinary stream searching for something a bit extra ordinary. The second image, one from last years adventure to Maine, although it rained for 24 hours a day, 5 days a week it seemed, there was still lots to shoot. These big tooth aspen leaves, of which I originally thought for birch, laid in a carpet beneath a barren tree. Slightly shielded from the rain but just exposed enough to catch a few stray drops. They had such rich color for having fallen from the branches, much more vibrant than the other deciduous trees that surrounded this one too. Passers by gave me the oddest looks as I stooped over this patch, covering my camera and protecting it from the rain. I looked like I was covering up a horrible crime I'm sure, not searching for a tiny slice of order in a pool of chaos, lol.
================================================Working hard to plan several more workshops for 2020 including Iceland, Autumn in Southern Utah, and more as well as a great lineup of Black Friday deals! Stay tuned in the coming weeks for announcements regarding both! Make sure to follow the link in my bio to sign up for my mailing list! ================================================
