Chasing Light in Bethel, Maine

So, I left for Western Maine on Monday morning dark and early at 4:30am in Portland.  And it was pitch dark AND cloudy for the next 2 hours!  But as I came into Bethel, the light was starting to get complex and the clouds were breaking up in places--with my second camera, I got a couple of shots of a rainstorm with sunrise light warring that I hope will be good.  But this was the first (and best) shot of the sunrise light as I left Bethel, to head on towards Weld, Maine.  I kept stopping by the road every mile or so to take pictures of this light, but this was the prettiest moment!

I hope you'll take a moment to share my blog with your friends and contacts as this is the only way I get word of my work out to the world.  I don't advertise.  You can see (and purchase) this in my Western Maine Gallery

First photos from this week's big Western Maine foliage trip!

I had a really great trip to Western Maine this week.  I really was hoping to do some night photography and actually capture the Milky Way, because I seem to always have the bad luck of being in places that would be good for capturing it on nights that the moon is shining brightly!  Well, the moon WAS shining brightly, but I tried it out anyhow!  I'm very happy with the results. 

These two photos were taken on Route 156 in Wilton, Maine at Hill's (or maybe Hill) Pond.  They were taken at f/3.5, ISO 800, 30 second exposure, with my Pentax 16-85mm lens. 

You can see these images full-sized on my  website Stay tuned for more to come!

Headed back to Western Maine for peak foliage this week!

 These are some of my images taken in Western Maine last year at this time (near Bethel, ME).  On Monday morning, I'm heading up to Western Maine again, but to a different area (Weld, Rangeley etc) because it is PEAK FOLIAGE TIME!  Can't wait. . .  Wish me luck!

Time spent in Deer Isle, Maine

Deer Isle, Maine is definitely one of my muses as a photography subject.  It's hard to go anywhere on the island without seeing something beautiful, honestly.  If you just show up for the right light, you're almost guaranteed to find something beautiful to shoot!  Over the past few months, these are some of the photographs I've taken while visiting my mother there. 

Please feel free to share my blog posts with your friends and contacts at will.  Also, take a moment to look at my website when you get a chance (below).  Cheers!

Fuller Farm Sunset and Stars, Scarborough, Maine

I went to Pine Point yesterday in Scarborough, ME, looking for some nifty sunset shots of the dories and rowboats at high tide.  But, hey--no boats here!  The water was REALLY choppy and the boats were really close to the shore and looked pretty lame.  So I changed my plan and thought I would try to get some salt marsh at sunset shots. . .  Hmm. .. .  No salt marsh in evidence here either.  What gives, Cindy?  Well, the upshot is that I took a wrong left turn at Albuquerque, so to speak, and ended up at Fuller Farm in Scarborough and I'm so glad I did!  The haystacks looked so beautiful and harvesty, and there were magnificent pink clouds overhead.  And then I stayed long enough to capture some stars, as you'll see in my third shot.  Sometimes, when life hands you lemons. . .

Thinking about an autumnal photo shoot. . .

So, I've been working out where to go in Western Maine THIS October, after having so much success last year heading up toward Bethel, ME.  At first, I thought, "I need to go to Baxter State Park!"  But after a lot of research, I realized that. . .  I need to do MORE research!  So I'll plan a trip for next summer to Baxter with my family instead. 

But I think I may head to Weld, ME for a couple of days, because there are so many amazingly beautiful sights just off the road: wooded streams and rivers, Webb Lake, Mt. Blue State Park, Tumbledown Mountain and the "bowl" at the top--a beautiful pond. 

I hope you'll take a moment to share my blog post with your friends and family.  And once again, please click the "follow" button on the right side of the page with all the icons of my other followers.

Sunset at Willard Beach

Over the past couple of weeks, I drove over to South Portland's Willard Beach's sweet little shacks several times, hoping to get great sunset light.  The first two times, despite the clouds being gorgeous in Portland, as I drove over, it completely clouded up and rained!  But the third time, THIS night, I was rewarded with some really magical light.  I'm so glad, because I love these little fishing shacks.

Please share this post with your contacts and click the share on Facebook button, if you would, as getting the word out there about my work with your help is the only way I advertise.  If you like these, you can view or purchase them on my  landscape and nature portfolio

Reviving Ye Olde Blog!

Hi everyone!  It has been SUCH a long time since I last posted:  2014!  But I thought I should dust off the old blog and start posting here again.  I wanted to show some of my newest work to you.  I went to Bug Light Park in South Portland the other night, hoping to capture the lighthouse at sunset, but the best light was over the Portland skyline itself.
There were at least 20 people around me, enjoying the weather and light, and they all whipped out their smart phones and cameras to capture what we were seeing.
The light over the lighthouse, which frequently can be beautiful at sunset, looking back toward Portland, was lackluster at best, although there were still people doggedly trying to get good pictures of it. 
This was taken before the sunset (obviously!) and I shot it at f/32 with my 16-85mm lens, which introduced some softness, which I didn't like.  But I did like all the points of the star it created of the sun!  A photographic tradeoff I guess. 

You can always see my entire body of work at and flickr:
