Panorama of Lincoln, Maine
This is the town I grew up in. The 2010 census lists the population at 5,085. It covers an area of 74.65 square miles and has 13 beautiful ponds and lakes, of which Mattanawcook Pond is probably the largest. This is the view of the waterfront, beach, and downtown area from Mattanawcook Pond on a typical summer afternoon. Mattanawcook Junior High School and soccer fields are also visible, with Lincoln Paper & Tissue mill in the background, and a float plane near the beach. Click the image to zoom in and pan around.
I'll be teaching a panorama workshop September 18-22 with Vincent Lawrence of Acadia Images Photography Workshops if you'd like to learn how to take photos like this: http://acadiaimages.com/2015-workshops/panoramas/
2015 Perseid Meteor Shower
The Perseids were really good this year, especially due to a new moon and very dark skies. I nearly didn't get a chance to see them with thunderstorms most of the evening, but by 1AM the skies had cleared and I was able to capture a neat timelapse video. You can see the video and photos here: http://galleries.aaronpriestphoto.com/Night/2015Perseids
