Quick Pic


I haven’t been out with the camera in a while, but I’m excited to be heading back down to Acadia in the morning. I keep getting drawn to the round rocks at Boulder Beach below Otter Cliffs, so that’s likely where I will start the day. Sunrise is officially at 6:49am, and with a high tide listed at 4:58am there might be some good conditions. Our fall and early winter this year have been relatively mild, though the forecasted 31 degree temps at dawn will probably be a shock to the system! I have an idea in mind about using the ND filter for a long exposure… something about streaking clouds over Otter Cliffs with spectacular sunrise colors… we’ll see how it works out.

In the meantime, here’s a quick archive pic made from the shore at Boulder Beach when forest fires burning up north in Quebec had enveloped the area in a thick haze…

  1. That is an incredible image. I just love that technique of slowing down the water…someday I’m headed to the shore with my tri-pod in hand to give it a try. Hope you got some more incredible shots there again! ~Lili

      Thanks Lili. Isn’t it interesting how keeping the shutter open long enough for movement to occur can impact a photograph? Unfortunately my plans fell apart this time and I didn’t get to the coast. Perhaps this weekend.

      Thanks Jason… with this kind of photograph you don’t really know how the movement in the water is going to turn out before you press the shutter, so I was quite pleased to see how this one “developed”.

I'd love to hear from you...
