I’ve spent so much time capturing my outdoor adventures through these photographs that I’ve never made time to share them until now. Hopefully you will enjoy viewing these images as much as I’ve enjoyed being on the trail and on the water capturing them.
I have some of my nature photography prints on display at the Warehouse, 826 Kennedy Memorial Drive in Oakland.
Pink lady’s slipper and painted trillium appear in May.
Blue Flag Iris
One of my favorite wild flowers, the blue flag iris is common in marshes and bogs.
Loon on Nest
A loon on a nest in the Serpentine, between East Pond and North Pond in the Belgrade Lakes region. I used a long lens with a teleconverter and a camera body capable of giving lenses extra reach (for en effective focal length of over 1000mm) to avoid getting too close to the nest. No photograph is worth making wildlife feel threatened by my presence.
Momma and Chicks
A female common goldeneye with two chicks on Upper South Branch Pond in Maine’s Baxter State Park. A short portage trail from Lower South Branch Pond provides access to the Upper Pond when the water level is low.
Morning and Night
Morning mist and moonlight at Scraggly Lake.
Pickerel Weed reflected in the water along Great Meadow Stream.
A great blue heron in Great Meadow Stream, between North and Great Ponds in the Belgrade Lakes region. Photographing from a kayak offers some great opportunities to view wildlife that I’d not see otherwise, yet poses some special challenges when there’s a current or choppy water. Vibration reduction and fast shutter speeds make capturing images like these possible.
Three tree swallows wait for their momma to bring lunch.
Young Bull Moose
A young bull moose in a stream flowing out of Scraggly Lake, northeast of Baxter State Park. I camped in the lean-to at Scraggly West and when the wind made the lake itself a little too choppy, I paddled about a mile down the quieter water in the stream.
