Foggy Sunset from Cadillac Mountain
June 6, 2016
I took this panorama of fog and sunset over Bar Harbor from the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park on June 6, 2016, 7:50 PM. It is stitched from 28 photos with Photoshop (it was too large for Lightroom). The sun was setting fast and the fog was moving fast too, so I shot a single row at 140mm, f/8, ISO 64, 1/20 sec. I didn’t have time for a second row or longer focal length. I chose f/8 and focused on the ridge where the hikers were because I liked the town and fog being slightly out of focus in the distance compared to the sharp outline of the ridge catching the last of the sun’s golden glow.
Telos Lake, Allagash Wilderness Waterway, Maine
April 29 & 30, 2016
I recently got back from a camping/photo trip in the northern Maine woods with my good friend Garrett Evans, shooting the night sky from some new, unique locations. This is the Milky Way reflecting in Round Pond & Telos Lake on the Allagash Wilderness Waterway with Mt. Katahdin in the distance. Even to the naked eye the reflection of the stars in the water was amazing!
Memorial Bridge, Portsmouth, New Hampshire
April 16 & 17, 2016
I spent the weekend shooting Memorial Bridge and surrounding areas between Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Kittery, Maine. My purpose was to capture the LED lighting on the bridge during blue hour, but I shot plenty of other things too. I started out on Badger Island the first night and shot from the Portsmouth side the second night. I also took some behind-the-scenes spherical panoramas with a little Ricoh Theta S.
