Boats and Bays on the Coast of Maine

A few weeks ago Mary and I spent 8 days photographing Fall color from Camden to Acadia.  Besides great trees, lakes, and lighthouses, there were numerous large and small bays.  Here are some of our favorite photos:

Boats – Big and Small

We did much of our shooting during the day with overcast skies.  A monotone treatment worked really well, here.

Color Blocking

There were plenty of chances to create subtle abstracts with all of the boat colors.

The tools used for fishing also made for nice stills.

There are thousands and thousands of these trap floats everywhere.


Finally, look for abstracts in the water.  See Mary’s longer post about making these photos.


Here is last week’s post on Maine Lighthouses.  More from Maine next week.

    I encourage you to explore and photograph the relatively unknown and uncrowded San Rafael Swell area of south central Utah. An area that I have a passion to share with other photographers. My wife and I completed a guide book that describes 42 destination and we would like to introduce you to this remarkable area. You will not have a photographers combat issue in the 2,000 squire mile San Rafael Swell. We just returned from leading a Utah County Jeep club to Grand Canyon like views on Link Flats and none of the group had heard of the area prior to being briefed on the trip. You have to see this area and you will be as excited about it as I am. If you would like I can send you photos to stimulate your desire to visit this vast of spectacular canyons, butts, natural arches, and even several herds of wild horses.

    Write back and let me send you additional information.
