I’m still alive! I’m over halfway done with my artist residency at Acadia National Park. I’m not entirely off the grid, but mostly so — my connections up here are tenuous at best, which is not a bad thing.
The photography gods finally agreed to allow me to photograph the aurora borealis (Northern lights) from Acadia last night. It looks like the window to see them has passed (notwithstanding the rain forecast for tonight), but it was really amazing.
I’ve included a few shots here, but it will take me a while to work through all the photographs and determine which are keepers, etc.
I wanted to take this opportunity to mention my upcoming night landscape photography class at Maine Media Workshops on October 12th-18th. I can’t promise auroras, but the night skies should be spectacular nonetheless.
I’ll be back in the saddle at home again on Monday the 22nd. Until then, here are two more photographs from last night…(the last one is a wide angle view)
