Scarborough Marsh and Old Orchard Beach at Dawn

More recent land and seascape work from March 2012
Both days of the weekend, I got out to photograph sunrise with my friend, Felice Boucher.  On Saturday, we visited Scarborough Marsh, and I was a little afraid that I'd dragged poor Felice out for nothing, as it was almost completely clouded over when I got up.  But by the time we had set up in the marsh, beautiful, soft morning color was beginning to appear and we both ended up with some great shots and had a lot of fun.  We went to The Holy Donut on Park Avenue and picked up some of their delicious doughnuts after that.  I can say that their Sweet Potato Ginger and their Chocolate Glazed doughnuts are hands-down my favorite--yum!

On Sunday, Jon, Maya and I woke up at 5:30 am to drive down to Old Orchard Beach, where Felice met up with us and we had another great morning of photographing a beautiful sunrise in a gorgeous Maine location!  We went to breakfast up the street at Beach Bagels after that.  They are so nice there and they had some awesome Bob Marley music playing while we ate our eggs, french toast and drank some well-needed coffee!

You can see the Old Orchard Beach shots in my OOB gallery and the Scarborough Marsh shots in my Scarborough Marsh Gallery.

Some Recent Landscape Work

Clockwise from top left: OOB, Pink Skies at Night, January Moonrise, Ferry Beach Dunes at Sunset, OOB Sunset, Ferry Beach Sunset, Vertical Ferry Beach Sunset and Moonrise Over the Ferry Beach Dunes.
I've been going back to my original muse lately: landscapes.  I have been trying some new things out: shooting at quite small apertures to really create a star effect with the setting sun, using a polarizing filter on my ultrawide and using an ND8 (A neutral density filter) to lengthen evening or morning exposures for interesting effects such as streaming water or moving clouds. 

You can see all of these images separately in my Maine Landscapes Gallery and my Old Orchard Beach Gallery

As I look out the skylight over my desk, I can see beautiful puffy white clouds floating by and I am wishing I were out there taking pictures even now.  Keep your eyes peeled for more work soon. 

Happy Early Spring everyone! 



welcome to my world!
