A foggy morning in Portland, Maine. . .

A Happy Accident--vastly overexposed fog shot on the Eastern Promenade yesterday.

And a correctly exposed shot, looking down the Eastern Promenade.
Cheers!  Cindy

Niagara Falls

Horseshoe Falls from the Hornblower Tour boat (to the top left on the cliff are hundreds of tiny observers!)

The view looking down at Horseshoe Falls from our hotel room.  The only way to capture the rainbow!

Looking at the side of Horseshoe Falls whilst IN the mist!

To give you an idea of the massiveness of Niagara Falls--this is a boat that holds upwards of 700 people!
This was truly checking one of the items off of my bucket list--what a fun and refreshing trip!
You can see (and purchase) all of these in my

A little late December sunrise light for you to enjoy. .

 It was such a beautiful, tranquil morning at Old Orchard Beach a day before Christmas Eve.  There were only two other people on the beach with my husband and I, and there was a real hush to the air, other than the sound of the waves lapping the sand over and over.  Also, for those of you not used to Maine latitude, sunrise this time of year is WELL after 7 am!  It was no hardship to get up for this, despite how early it looks.
You can see and purchase this here:
The next shot was interesting to me, because I had never noticed ANY lighthouses while looking out from the beach at Old Orchard.  I put on my 300mm lens and took this very tiny picture of what turned out to be Wood Island Light, off the Biddeford Pool Road.  The clouds look so big and tall and the color so deep orange, but it is only because I am zoomed in so far that I am only looking at the small strip of orange you see in the picture above on the horizon.
You can see and purchase this here:
This shot made me the happiest of the morning, because moments after the sun rose, it looked to me like a brilliant little egg, nesting in the soft, purply clouds on the horizon.  And the light was magnificent and golden!
You can see and purchase this here:
I liked this shot, because the light looks almost Caribbean to me--the temperatures were NOT Caribbean though--it was a "balmy" 26 degrees farenheit.

Stonington's Sand Beach at Sunset

I had a great Thanksgiving holiday in Deer Isle with my mother and family this year--I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgivings too!  I also got a chance to go out twice and shoot in some beautiful light conditions.  The first night I got there (I hate to say "night", as the sun set at 4:09pm!!!  Ugh!)
The light was magnificent well before sunset and became very interesting after sunset.

I will have more to come either this week or next, and I may even share a scarily humorous story about the second shoot, so stick around!

"SUPER" Supermoon November 2016!

Well, it was an exciting week for photographers!  I'm sure you've all heard about November 14th's Supermoon?  It was the last time we will see a full moon this big for another 70 years apparently.  I was thrilled to find that the weather was good both the night before and the night of the Supermoon.  The first night, I went to Spring Point Ledge Light, and the moon looked big and beautiful, but nothing like the night of the full moon:

The night of the full moon was a huge difference.  But it was a much more challenging shoot.  It was full dark, being over 30 minutes after sunset, so I had to juggle with settings to be able to expose for both the moon and the lighthouse.  At first, it worked well:

 It was unbelievably large and beautiful!  There were tons of other people on Long Sands Beach with me, all along the beach--I am not sure how many, but possibly as much as 100?  It was such great energy.

Once the moon rose a bit more, however, the shoot became even trickier, possibly because the moon was so darned bright.  So I began taking one picture to expose for the lighthouse and island and one picture to expose for the moon, so it wouldn't just look like a big white disk hanging in the sky.

In Photoshop, I superimposed the two shots together and erased the white moon and let the moon from my "moon picture" shine through.  I think it looks pretty good!

I hope you all got to see this amazing vision for yourselves.  I'm so glad I drove all the way to York, Maine (an hour) to share this experience with so many other nice people.

Final Shots from my Autumnal Revels

I am sorry to see the last of these Autumnal shots.  Why can't Autumn give us beauty and color for the whole three months, like the other three seasons do?  (Well, maybe not Winter. . .)

STILL processing shots from my Autumnal trips!

I know it's been weeks of Autumnal images from Western Maine, but do you think you can stand a few more?  ;-)  It's just that driving around Western Maine, it's very hard not to trip over beautiful vistas every couple of miles (or even closer sometimes!)

Thanks for taking the time to look.  I hope you'll also consider sharing my blog with your friends and family, as this is the way I get the word out there about my work!
