U PICK BLUE BERRIES, Abbot, Maine

Sometimes, sometimes,  the elements that make up a good picture come together in a decisive moment, the subject, composition, and lighting, and inspiration strikes, like lightning it can happen anywhere. Granted, for me, there is still something very special about Moosehead Lake that is almost indefinable, but driving around Piscataquis County can very inspiring too, if I happen upon the […]

  How do I find the words to describe an experience so profoundly beautiful, so life altering, so outside of my ordinary existence as first-time passenger onboard a Katahdin Cruise? The answer is that I can’t. It was for me what they call a peak experience and I believe that it would be for you as well. There aren’t enough words in the English dictionary to […]

Mount Kineo State Park|Green Photographer

On the Kineo shuttle, a 10 minute trip, I wanted to frame Mt Kineo in a different light.

No, I’m not talking about the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail but about how I felt standing at the base of the Mount Kineo Fire tower looking up after a short but intense hike up the Indian Trail Wednesday morning. (Not wanting to chicken out because pictures from the fire tower would be conspicuously absent to my […]

Springtime in Kokadjo|Green Photographer

The view across First Roach Pond with Whitecap Mountain

  Tuesday morning I made the first trip to Kokadjo in 2016, only to find that on the outside the place hadn’t changed that much at all, expecting spring wildflowers blooming all along the road and along the pond and along the river that runs into Moosehead Lake. I was not disappointed! I tentatively set up my tripod at the boat launch […]

  Thank you to our new neighbors in Greenville for all the information on the local area and local history! Thank you! I got an early start this morning, 4am, and from the night before I could see all the elements of right time and right place coming together, conspiring for me and not against me at last to […]
