Here is one from Bar Harbor in Maine. This rock was deposited by a glacier thousands of years ago. No matter how many people try, that can't knock it over. Take with the Nikon D800 and 16-35mm F4.
Sunrise in Acadia
A beautiful scene in Acadia National Park in Maine. Composition is always a challenge here. I almost decided to crop out the tree on the left, but left it in and I like it. Photography is always so personal. This was taken with the Nikon D800 and 16-35mm F4 lens.
Another shot taken from the beautiful coast of Maine in Acadia National Park. I took many photos in rapid succession here to try and get the waves crashing at the right moment. This was the best I could get before the sun rose too high. This was taken with the Nikon D800 and 16-35 F4 lens.
Here is another sunrise from Acadia because, why not. Moving down the rugged coast this particular morning, I had the place to myself. I guess other people didn't want to wake at 4:30am and drive a fair distance to get this place in time. Taken with the Nikon D800 and 16-35f4 lens.
Bass Harbor Head Light
Here's a shot from Acadia National Park on the west side of the island. This was captured in the evening as I attempted to get a sunset shot. The light however was not cooperating and the lighthouse was back light. So I waited till the sun was behind and exposed for the foreground. I decided to edit this in black and white, which gives it a dramatic look.
An early morning in Bar Harbor at the docks. This fisherman setup shop on this beautiful morning. I don't usually include people in my landscape shots, but the contrast of the yellow jacket just works here. Taken with the Nikon D750 and 24-70F2.8 Lens.
Here is a shot taken of otter cliffs in Acadia National Park. This is an example of taking a shot during the middle of the day. The light is always harsh, and most landscape photographers put their cameras away and take naps. However, it's generally a great opportunity to target the landscape for any black and white photos. Black and white of course is based on stark contrast. Taken with the Nikon D750 and 24-70f2.8 lens.
Sunrise at Hulls Cove
Taken in Hulls Cove on Mt. Desert Island in Maine. I used the Nikon D750 and the 70-200F4 for this shot.
Rocky Harbour Sunset
Here is one from a trip to NewfoundLand in the summer of 2015. This particular location was Rocky Harbour right near Gros Morne National Park. The silhouetted lighthouse is the Lobster Cove Head Lighthouse. This was taken with the Nikon D750 and 70-200 F4.
Sharks Fin Rock
Here is one from the coast of Newfoundland near the Lobster Cove Head lighthouse. This was a 2 second exposure used with the Nikon D750 and 24-70 F2.8.
Myrtle Beach Sunrise
Here is one from the winter in North Myrtle Beach South Carolina. This was a fairly long 3 second exposure, taken with the Nikon D750 and 70-200 F4.
Sunrise at Fort Hill
Here is one from Cape Cod in Massachusetts. This is a spot called Fort Hill that is known for beautiful sunrises. When I arrived here in July, I was greeted by a contingent of deer flies that were super annoying. The sunrise itself was blocked by clouds, but eventually the clouds parted and we were treated to this nice scene. This was taken with the Fuji X-T1 and 50-140 F2.8 lens.
Sunset at Chapin Memorial Beach
A dramatic sunset without the sun. The sun was peaking through the storm clouds off into the ocean. The colors were incredible and the storm provided just the right amount of drama. This photo was taken with the Fuji X-T1 and the 16-55 f2.8 lens.
Cape Cod Whales
Here is a shot from a whale watch up near Provincetown Massachusetts in Cape Cod. We had an amazing whale watch with a large number of Humpback whales, that were very active. The area was a mile or so off-shore in the ocean sanctuary. This was taken with the Fuji X-T1 and 50-140 and 1.4x Teleconverter.
Here is a sunrise near South Yarmouth in Cape Cod. I was setup for sunrise and really struggled to find a good composition. There was just nothing of interest in the frame. I watched this runner running down the beach and just started snapping away. It worked out nicely and helps to provide movement to the photo. I maxed out the aperture to F22 on the Fuji X-T1 and 16-55mm f2.8.
Here is a shot taken in the summer of 2017. I have been to Acadia many times, yet there was an area that I hadn't yet been too, and that was an area called Great Head. I used the Photopills app to figure out exactly where the sun was going to rise. I got up at 4:30am, drove about 15 minutes, and hiked down to the shoreline very quickly. I was of course greeted by no sun-rise. So I decided to do a long exposure shot, and the colors turned out to be fantastic. This was taken with the Fuji X-T2 and 16-55 f2.8 lens.
The Ocean Trail
Here's a shot taken in January of 2017 during a winter trip to North Myrtle Beach South Carolina. The colors of the sky were fantastic right before the sun actually rose. This was taken with the Fuji X-T2 and 16-55 F2.8.
North Myrtle Beach Sunset
Here's one from the beautiful shores of North Myrtle Beach taken in the winter of 2017. This was taken with the Fuji X-T2 and 16-55 f2.8 lens.
Here's a shot taken in the summer of 2017 in Acadia National Park. This particular day was a dreary and overcast day along the main park loop road. I decided to stack my Neutral Density filter and Polarizer for a long exposure shot. This was taken with the Fuji X-T2 and 16-55 f2.8 Lens.
The Ocean Path
Here's a shot taken in Acadia National Park along the ocean path. This path skirts along the park loop road and allows visitors to walk along the rocky coast for a few miles. There are many photographic opportunities here if the light is right, or even if it's a bit dreary as it was here. The lichen on the rocks provide a nice dash of color. This was taken with the Fuji X-T2 and 16-55 f2.8 lens.
During a sunrise in North Myrtle Beach in the winter of 2017, I wanted to concentrate on the shape of the waves during the golden light of the day. This is an example of this and a good reminder to not concentrate so much on the sun itself, but on the surrounding area during sunrise/sunset. This was taken with the Fuji X-T2 and 50-140mm f2.8.
The Colorful Quiet Side
During a recent trip to Acadia National Park, we stayed a few nights on the quiet side of the island. This is the side that gets far less visitors than the Bar Harbor area, but has it's own beauty. This particular spot was only steps away from a motel we stayed at, the Seawall Motel, near Southwest Harbor. Taken with the Fuji X-T2 and 16-55 f2.8 lens. 1/3 f11.
Taken near seawall in Acadia National Park during the summer of 2017. This was a multi-exposure shot, exposing for the sky and the foreground. Captured with the Fuji X-T2 and 16-55 f2.8 lens.
Taken in Bar Harbor. This lonely row boat by itself wasn't the most exciting of compositions. However as a black and white photo, I really like the mood that is created with this one. There is a sense of loneliness here. Captured with the Fuji X-T2 and 50-140mm F2.8 lens.
Taken on the west side of Mt. Desert Island in Acadia National Park. This particular area is actually called Wonderland. During low-tide the shore is littered with many tide pools in which you can explore. A polarizer is a must-have accessory here, especially during the day. We tried looking for starfish but could not spot any. Captured with the Fuji X-T2 and 16-55 f2.8.
Morning at Bass Harbor Head Light
Taken in Acadia National Park at the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse. I arrived at this location before sunrise, hoping to capture the blue and golden hour colors. What I was greeted with was a vast number of mosquitoes. I was completely covered and these things were persistent and horrible. I quickly found out why I was the only one there. The ocean was also very calm so I'm hoping to go back and get a more dramatic long exposure shot ( with less bugs ). Captured with the Fuji X-T2 and 16-55mm f2.8 lens.
