Frosty Lincolnville Morning

After a recent shoot on top of Lookout Point for dawn (more on that soon), I came across gorgeous light gracing a field in Lincolnville, Maine.  The morning light caught the light frost in the field – frost which did not hold up long even under the soft early light.  This was about a month ago – frost in the mornings seems long ago now after our recent weather, but local gardeners know that it is still way too early to plant for fear of another frost so maybe we’ll get lucky again.

Without further ado, here are a few of the images:

More Winter work…

Here are three images I quite like, again from Megunticook Lake this last winter…

New work and opening tomorrow night!

A reminder – the opening for the Maine Photography Show is tomorrow night (Friday night, Apr. 16th) in Boothbay Harbor.  Hope to see you there!

I’m continuing to go through my work from this winter.  Here is an image I like from Barrett’s Cove of Megunticook Lake.  Late afternoon, the ice starting to recede…This is from about a month and a half ago, too, as the ice has of course fully melted as of mid-April.

New images from Lincolnville Beach

Here are two new images from Lincolnville Beach from about a month and half ago – these were both from just before dawn and interesting my tripod was pretty close to the same spot for both.  The dock is for the ferry from Lincolnville to Isleboro – I love the colors from the artificial lights mixed with the pre-dawn colors.

Winter 2010 – Popham Beach Sunset

Also in February, I made my first trip to Popham Beach State Park one late afternoon.  Magnificent.  The weather wasn’t too cold but, it being February in Maine at the beach, I had the place almost entirely to myself.  I’ve been there once since and haven’t yet scanned those photos, but I expect to go here frequently in the future.  Particularly in the winter  – I love the feel of a beach in the winter when it is unpopulated, and Popham Beach supposedly becomes mighty crowded in the summer as one of Maine’s relatively rare sand beaches.

Winter 2010 – Camden Hills

Here are a few images from this winter from just around the corner from my house in Camden Hills State Park.  These were all taken in early February (incidentally our last real snowfall), the first two while standing on the beach on which we will be swimming in not too long.  It was a particularly fine morning just after a fresh overnight snowfall.
