05/07/16 Stars in Acadia

Posted: September 25, 2016 in Uncategorized

On this beautiful night, I headed to the Loop Road in Acadia National Park. I ran into several photographers scattered throughout the darkness. Most of the usual locations were occupied. After some time, I was finally able to find a few locations to set up, shoot, and enjoy the night. At Sand Beach, the water covered the entire beach and I was forced to shoot from the stairs.

  1. To shoot the stars from the stairs — I love it. At least, you HAVE stars, Ray… that tide-ful beach – is this sea-level rise in action? It’s not full moon now… Exquisite and elemental — as with your earlier storm scene (my comment somehow vanished, WordPress wrote me –) I have great need of elemental things just now, and you seek them out and generously share them. Gratefully, c

    Beautiful “new work.” Too many photographers locally copying your work on Island Beach State Park. Love your use of light and dark/color and design in Acadia. Memories from long ago of Thunder Hole, so always nice to see. Your work is becoming much more sophisticated and uniquely yours.

    Just returned home from spending last 4 mo. in hospital, rehab hospital as I messed up my other ankle fracturing it into fragments like the left one….was referred to assisted living many times by the rehab staff and my surgeon, but not ready for the “glue factory” quite yet. Attempting to be in my my condo past few days, a steep walkup I shall have to sell, of course. So hard to have had so many downfalls and injuries and messed up both legs permanently after years of outdoor mt. climbing, hiking, xc skiing, winter mountaineering in the Rocky Mts. of CO, etc. etc. etc. and years of ice dancing, stage dancing when ice not available at rinks at NJ Shore.

    Bet you are loving having a condo in Bar Harbor. I have a cousin/visual artist in Belfast who is married to a writer. Both seniors/retirees from NYC.

    Best wishes as you continue to find new directions with your always beautiful work.
