Japan in Maine

Japan in Maine.jpg

There’s a lovely little spot in Rockport, Maine called Beauchamp Point. I took this image from its edge with a long (400mm) lens looking almost due east. The little foot bridge and the foggy island just offshore I think gives this place an oriental feel, especially when finished off in very contrasty black and white.

River, Sea and Sky

This is the Megunticook River in Maine as it empties into Camden Harbor. The harsh Maine light helped the colors a lot. So did the high water level of the river as it splashed high over the rocks.

Lady In A Hat

This is a photo of my long-suffering wife Sarah sitting on the front stoop of our rented house in Maine. I say long-suffering because I am constantly bothering her by asking to pose for some shot or other. This one however didn’t require any as she was just sitting in the sun with her back to me. Since her hat was way overexposed to start with, when I cut the exposure way back and added some heavy vignetting, the result was what you see above. The moire¬†on her shoulder is very obvious but since it looks like part of the shirt design so it wasn’t really too distracting in this case.
