Bird photography is a popular type of photography but it is not as easy as some of the other types of photography that you can do while traveling. The first problem is
During our week long visit to Maine, while driving & walking, I could not help noticing the colorful parts of the scenery! Colorful Maine came to my mind while in the woods, along the roads, on the shore & in the towns.
After taking the whale watching boat from Bar Harbor and eating a hearty lunch at Paddy’s (see Part 4) we headed back to our home base. We did some quick downloading (except for me as both of my hard drives were full- epic fail on my part! – those extra CF cards came in handy) and then we all hit our beds. As the next part of our journey around Maine was starting at 1:30am! We awoke briefly in the evening to eat some dinner but went back to sleep until the appointed time. We left in the dark of night
There is a part of Acadia National Park that is very popular with visitors and locals. The massive granite & basalt rocks of Schoodic Point exemplify what Maine is, in my mind! The Atlantic Ocean is right there splashing up against
After getting stranded (temporarily) on Bar Island (see Part 2), you would think we would stay away from Bar Harbor, but no, we spent some more time there. There are a lot of restaurants around the harbor and we tried several of them. After we made it across the water that was quickly covering the sand bar between Bar Island and Bar Harbor we headed directly to the Fish House Grill for some lunch.

A visit to Bar Harbor is required if you are in that part of Maine! We actually drove in several times. We had our most exciting adventure right here in he most civilize part of our week long trip! After spending some time at the wharf and seeing that the town was full of many visitors from a large cruise ship that was sitting in the harbor, we decided to go out across the famous bar of Bar Harbor and explore Bar Island
I was looking forward to our trip to Maine ever since A.D. Wheeler and I got talking about it early in 2016. He found a house to rent for the week and put the word out to our Arcanum family that we were looking for a few intrepid photographers to join us for a week of wandering around Acadia National Forest and the surrounding area. We were joined by Mary Presson Roberts, Greg Croasdil & Mitch Russo plus our artist and budding photographer (and darn good chef), Danielle. We all arrived on a Saturday in August to balmy weather, a little too close to the weather at home in Florida, for me! Anyway, once we all got settled – which when there is a shoot about to happen did not take long – we headed out to a lake not too far from where we were staying. Eagle Lake is a large lake,
It was just a unpaved road that took us out into the salt flats of Death Valley but West Side Road was my favorite stop as we made our way around this strange and beautiful environment! We passed this road on our way south to other points of interest but when we returned
