Cadillac Mountain Sunset, Acadia National Park, Maine

June 14, 2009

Hey everybody,

I just got home yesterday, and the processing begins! Here’s a shot I just worked up. I had been out birding all day, and the clouds looked pretty bad. I went out to shoot sunset anyways, just in case, and I’d say it was pretty nice. I’m gonna keep this one brief, since I’ll be assisting on my man Joe’s one-day Great Falls workshop in about four hours.

Maine Day 2: Sunrise from Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park, Maine

June 4, 2009

Well, today was a heck of a day! I got up and left at 4:00AM to catch a lovely 4:45 sunrise. I then spent the rest of the day chasing warblers, which was mostly a bust besides one good American Redstart. I also did a good amount of scouting during the day, and found some nice cooperative birds to try and go back to in better light.

Anyhow, I shot this scene with a GND filter, but I also bracketed exposures to blend when I get home. Regardless, this isn’t my final version of the shot, but here’s what I worked up on my craptop!

Maine Day 1: Sunset Layers, Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park, Maine

June 3, 2009

Hey everybody,

I’ve just completed my first full day of shooting in Maine. It went pretty well, by my standards at least. I went out looking for birds this morning and during a brief cloudy stint this afternoon. The highlight was certainly an extremely cooperative Black-throated Green Warbler. I found tons of spots with tons of different birds for me to go back to. I’m really making an effort to get some songbirds out here, especially with all of the cloudy skies the Maine coast so graciously has to offer.

Anyway, I got caught up with the birds, and lost track of time. I had been planning a hike for sunset. I hurried from where I was birding to the summit of Cadillac Mountain, and caught the last 15 minutes of a pretty nice light show. I have some wide angle shots as well, but they require a blend, which I’m not equipped to do on my laptop. So, here’s a telephoto shot. Once again, please excuse the laptop processing.
