Little Boats
5391

This photograph is from a small collection I am calling, "Little Boats." Colorful water reflections are a powerful element that can give photographs a great deal of visual impact. Here, the warm intensity of a setting sun paints a shimmering display of orange and yellow highlights upon the water. A vivid backdrop that accentuates this overworked little dinghy.

As demonstrated in this photograph, I prefer to render the water as water, rather than the overdone long exposure "fog" look present in too many sea scapes today (water should look like water). I like how this image gives the viewer a feeling of standing on the shore in person. A photograph should look like an open window that draws the viewer into another scene.

Clearing Skies, Portland Head Light

Cape Elizabeth, Maine

The posts have been sparse again due to a very busy summer (too much of that work stuff getting in the way again). I recently returned from a freelance photography assignment to photograph the Maine coast for Richardson's Maptech. The image above was one of hundreds I captured over a two week period for their New England Coast cruising guide. I traveled the entire stretch of coastal route 1 from Kittery to Eastport; as well as a few of the Islands like Deer Island, Stonington, Beals Island, and Vinalhaven. Besides a vigorous photography schedule, and all of the related details, I had many opportunities to speak with people whom I met in the goings. The sheer volume of images captured prevents me from posting them as a complete collection any time soon. This probably means that I will feature the best of them, one at a time, over the next year and beyond.
