Photo Friday: What a Loon

April 7, 2017

Loons spend the Winter in the bays, and coast line, and move to lakes and rivers for nesting during the Spring.  I caught this one right before it moved out of Casco Bay for its fresh water home.

Photo Friday: Dramatic Cloud Formations

March 24, 2017

I think I’ve said it before, but I love cloud formations.  In a recent unit in my school they talked about stockpiling images of clouds for use as backgrounds of architecture photography, if the sky is uneventful.  This is what today’s shot is for.

First Look Photo: The Odd Duck

March 22, 2017

I found this white duck among other ducks yesterday.  I thought it was just another type of duck, but the closer I looked at the markings, especially on the head, and after looking at my book, I realized it was a white female mallard duck.  It’s a rare sighting to be sure, but albinos happen in most species, and it’s still fun to see.

Photo Friday: First Signs

March 10, 2017

Every year, towards the end of Winter, I look for certain signs that the warm up is on the way.  The first of these signs is the sound of the cardinal.  Most of the year, it is a short peep, but right before the warm up it changes to a beautiful song used to attract a mate.

Today’s picture is of a cardinal in the middle of its call.

First Look Photo: Periwinkle picture

March 8, 2017

I took this picture for my assignment on macro photography.  I chose this because of the unusual design, naturally carved into it.  The periwinkle shell is home to both the snail, and hermit crabs.

I just love how the clouds have a touch of color from the morning sun.

First Look Photo: Nutty Squirrel

March 1, 2017

No, I didn’t Photoshop this squirrel’s tail out, he doesn’t have one.  I have been seeing it for months, and thought it probably got into a fight with a fox.  It got away, but not before losing its tail.

The ducks in this area have made a permanent home in this area, and it makes for some interesting pictures.

First Look Photo: Making Scents

February 22, 2017

For this assignment, I was asked to shoot 4 small bottles of different sizes.  I chose two of my wife’s perfumes, and two scented oils we have for our diffusermake-scents.

I took this picture of a friend.  It was the first one someone requested. Usually I have to ask.
