Landscape Vlog

Acadia National Park,

Bar Harbor, ME

In a second annual kick-off to Milky Way "season," we returned to Bar Harbor to spend a full night under the stars shooting in Acadia National Park. We motivated at 11pm to pack up and leave the house, driving for several hours and arriving at 1:30am. Our senses were delighted, the smell of the ocean, the sounds of the gentle waves washing over the rocks of Boulder Beach, and of course the sights of endless stars twinkling brighter than you'd believe! It's an amazing experience spending a full night photographing the stars and though it always messes up our sleep schedule for days to follow, it's worth it every time!

After a quick trip to Newburyport, we stopped by Paul's old stomping grounds in New Hampshire and thought we might be able to create a few landscape photos. Odiorne Point State Park is just outside of Portsmouth New Hampshire. This is a popular destination in the summer months but it was quiet during our visit in January. Walking around the park, not feeling very optimistic about sunset I was trying to find a simple, maybe black and white, scene. But as I continued to shoot the clouds started to catch the last bit of light as it lit up in a firey blaze. What a spectacular evening to be on the coast and super excited about these images. Please leave questions or comments below.

On the 26th day of January, Paul returned to Potts Point to get a photo of this engine block that he found a couple weeks before. Intrigued by its color, texture, and story, this was a beautiful foreground. After a couple of attempts Paul was able to capture a beautiful sunset that complimented this rusty piece of Maine history so well. Watch Paul as he explains the process and the aftermath of this photo.

On the 25th day of January, I ventured out in search of a photo at Potts Point. The weather and tide didn't agree with me so I retreated to my backup plan. Stover's Point provides a fantastic view across the bay to the Cribstone bridge but when I arrived, someone had provided a different subject for me to photograph. This old tree was propped up on it's roots in the middle of the beach and I was more than happy to photograph that in the shining evening light. Check back soon for my follow up at Potts point where I did find success!

On the 22nd day of 2019 we ventured out to Hermit Island Campground. The clouds were high and created the perfect amount of color. With many compositions to be had at this beautiful location, we walked around for quite some time looking for a couple different photos. With nothing specific in mind Paul was able to capture the elements that make this place unique. Thanks for watching and hope you enjoy!

On the tenth day of 2019 I ventured out to check out Bowdoin College's Schiller Coastal Studies Center. They have miles of trails that wind along the coast of Harpswell and though it was cold and windy, it was a stunning evening. With limited time and one composition in mind, I only worked on one photo, waiting patiently for the light to be just right. This is a location we will definitely be revisiting!

Wolfsneck Woods State Park

On the eighth day of 2019 we ventured out to Wolfsneck Woods State Park. The evening was grey and a light mist was falling from the sky following a snow storm which had lain a fresh blanket of snow. It was a stunning scene in the woods but what really caught our eye was the hard snowline where the tide had risen, melting the snow until it reached it's highest tide level and began to recede. We explored the area until the light had gone and the park was closing. I hope you enjoy the resulting images!
