Today I thought take out the long lens and focus it on flowers instead of wildlife. A long lens does a great job compressing the subject, and this field of Sunflowers was a prime location for just that type of photography.
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.
