Another great “Glorious Acadia” fall workshop

Night Photography in Bar Harbor

Got back late Monday Night after a wonderful 4 day “Glorious Acadia” workshop.  Had a great group of photographers and met some wonderful friends and made a few new ones too.  All-in-all this was a 5 star workshop.  One last one left this year in December – The Bosque del Apache and White Sands – a few spaces are still available.

Here are few images form various locations:

I was looking to do something a little different during tho workshop.  There are way too many images of the same subjects and the same tripod holes.  Here isa lone dead tree lit up by the setting sun.  I knew it was going to be a full moon so we stayed at the same location and turned around about 130 degrees.  The next images is the moon rising.

The next image is a customary sunrise looking out toward Otter Clifs.  A few more clouds would definitely have added to the image.

At otter cove I did an IR time lapse using the 16 to 35 mm series two Canon lens.   This was a disaster as this lens just like to older version creates a massive hotspot in the center of the frame of each image.  Trash canned the lot bout a deep crop on one image was useable.

I will be posting a few more images captured by the wonderful participants.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of them for coming and being so supportive.

One final slow shutter speed image from the trip:

Cloudy Days

Another cloudy and damp day.  At least it is not raining.  This took me back to last week on the Cape and an image that appealed to me.  Truly hoping for great light in two weeks for the next workshop.

Snowy Owl “irruption”

Snowy owls are not uncommon in Massachusetts as a few are reported each winter.  In some years the population grows substantially, these are “irruption years” and this year is one of them.

The Snowy owl is a northern bird that lives and breeds in the open arctic tundra and is highly adapted to extreme cold conditions.  Those years where their food supplies are diminished they will fly further south in search of food.  In the early spring they will head back north though some have been seen even in the early summer.  The male is nearly all white while the female will have dark barred makings.

The owls are a very strong muscular breed and are formidable predators.  They will not hesitate to go after and kill hares and are partial to ducks.  Ducks have a high fat content that the snowy owls need for insulation.
