Here's a view few tourists get to see. Curtis Island Light sits outside of Camden Harbor but is only visible from the water, or the top of Mt. Battie in the background. A small portion of Camden Harbor can be seen on the left. My wife had dropped me off at the launch site them went off to go shopping, while I made my way to Rockport just a few miles down the coast. My wife often expresses concern when I'm out in the open water by myself. I kind of feel the same leaving here alone on main street in Camden with the credit card; at least I have a life jacket.
Though I now make my home in Sarasota, Florida, I'm originally a Maine native. I've been capturing images of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Florida, Western U.S, and Europe for over thirty-six years. Whether hiking, on my skis or snowshoes, or in my kayak, my camera is usually never far away. My basic photography interests are nature and landscape, but will never pass-up an opportunity to photograph whatever catches my eye. I've displayed my work in galleries and shows throughout my original home state, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and now here in Sarasota, and have had work appear in the pages of publications such as Maine Fish and Wildlife, the calendars of Down East, Maine Geographic, and Maine Scene. I was also selected and showcased in Nature Photographer's Annual Review, titled “In Celebration of the Earth”, a review of both amateur and professional photographers from throughout North America. Like many photographers, I started out with film and have now made the transition to digital. I really enjoy the flexibility, creativity, and control I have over the final image, and want to share that result with the viewers of this blog.
