Portland Head Light

Scott said to me today, "Our trip to Maine would have been better if it were sunny." However I think the storm clouds made this picture of Portland Head Light way more dramatic. I loved Maine even though we were only there for a short trip. We'll be back again soon. For sure.

Portland Headlight. It’s taken me forever to finally get a usable print of this landmark. This is a 3 color print which was my key to success. My earlier attempts were with a single block but I couldn’t figure out how to make the roof red but nothing else. Anyhow, it worked this time! #portlandheadlight #fortwilliamspark #capeelizabethmaine #linocut #maineartist #multicolorblockprint #mainelighthouse #capeelizabethart

We’re obviously having a good time this weekend if you’ve seen my stories. The east coast is beautiful! Even on a cloudy day. This is the Portland Head Light House...the oldest in the US! .

27 y e a r s

if I am being honest, the thought of turning 27 has been a hard pill for me to swallow. it just seems so much older to me than 26. maybe I feel like a real adult now? I don’t know.

this last year, I have learned a lot about myself. I’ve learned that I am strong and capable. I am valued. I am genuinely loved by many people. I started to see myself how Jesus sees me, which is a pretty cool thing. I’ve also learned to not take myself so seriously all the time and to, when appropriate, just let myself have fun.

Year 26 was an amazing year of growth and opportunity & even though it feels old, I am excited for everything year 27 will bring! On this day, I am so blessed and happy and very thankful to have wonderful people in my life who know my heart, see me for who I truly am and still love me deeply. God is so, so faithful. Here’s to another year!

Portland Head Light

Early wake up today with a stop in Portland, Maine. Home of a few lighthouses .... 65 in fact. This is probably the most recognised called Portland Head Light. Pretty much iconic on calendars and landscape photographers bucket lists. Beautiful time of year to arrive. If we had some more time, heading further in land we would have caught all the foliage in it’s colourful glory. Think that will be the next port. #portland #maine #lobster #portlandheadlight #lighthouse #landscape #waves #sea #blueskies #vacationland #tourist #travelphotography #photographer #photojournalism #shotoniphone

Portland Head Lighthouse 2019

Well it’s been about a month since I’ve posted anything and that’s because I’ve been on a bit of walkabout. Sure aboriginals would scoff at at a walkabout in a cozy car with air conditioning when it’s too hot and seat warmers when it’s too cold (I do like a my tushy to stay warm when I walkabout) but nevertheless...For the last three and a half weeks I’ve been touring through Maine and the Maritime provinces of Canada. So get ready, if you like rugged coastlines, picturesque fishing villages, and lighthouses (and who doesn’t like lighthouses), I’ve got some pictures for you. Today we start with the Portland Head Lighthouse, one of Maine’s best, first lit in January of 1791 making it the granddaddy of Maine’s many lighthouses. Of course when shooting something that’s been photographed a bazillion times it’s nice to try and get a new perspective and that’s where a drone comes in very handy. Amazing little machines! #lighthouse #lighthouse_world #lighthouselovers #portlandheadlight #drone #dji #djimavicpro2 #travel #travelguide #travelholic #travelbag #travelstoke #igworldclub #kelbyonepics #traveltheworld #hubs_united #aroundtheworldpix #awesomeglobe #fierce_shots #gophotohere #dicoverearth #welltraveled #travelandlife # openmyworld # travelworld #welivetoexplore #wanderlusting #worldofwanderlust #globewonderer #TravelgramNation #shotzdelight

Portland Head Light Lighthouse

This mini trip has been about eating and @originalfunko hunting, no vacation would be complete without an educational sightseeing component so we decided to check out the Portland Head Lighthouse in South Portland and I'm glad we did, I know we look cold but it was actually 17 degrees out, just windy making the seas very angry, would love to come back in the summer and spend a day hiking the trails

Portland Head Light

Final post from my #Lighthouse trilogy. This is the classic Portland Head Light shot.
Waking up at 3 am after about 2.5 hours of sleep, the cool morning breeze in the middle of a sweltering summer (did I mention that I’m more of a winter person?), being alone at this beautiful spot with sounds of waves crashing against the rocks was a highlight of this early July trip. Special mention about how nice the locals were! I had some fun conversations with my Lyft drivers to and from this spot!

Crepuscular Rays at Portland Head -

This was a stretch, getting out far enough on the rocks to look back to the northwest and capture the amazing sky show. I actually thought I had a better chance of seeing a rainbow at sunset, but as we got close to that time, it became apparent that the small storm was breaking apart. What we got instead were these beautiful rays. I found that a crevice in the rocks helped to point the eyes to the same focal point as the rays, and took about 4 photos before my battery died.

Portland Head Light

I haven't been as active in the landscape photography realm as I've wanted to be the past few months. Now that I live on my own, I have a lot of free time on my hands. Living in such a gorgeous state, I can't think of a better way of filling it than capturing it through my lens.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
What a way to get back into the game this morning was! I'm more of a sunset photographer, which makes this certainly the best sunrise I've ever photographed!⁣⠀

Center of Gravity -

This is my playground, my sandbox. More than any other location, even more than my beloved Lookout Point, this is where I feel the most creative. I love having new experiences and finding new expressions here. I love refining my vision and trying to distill the elements into the most effective visual communications I can. I love the challenge of working with conditions that many would consider to be poor, although on this morning, I think most would agree that the conditions were anything but poor. There was some of the best light I’ve seen on this morning, and I took advantage by applying what I have learned from those many experiences.

Take advantage of the dark background of clouds by running up to the cliffs on the left. Compose the image to create the strongest way of seeing what was in front of me. Include the sweeping line of surf crashing against the rocks below as a strong diagonal, so effective at giving a sense of dynamism in 2d images. Take advantage of the warm light on the cliffs and in the sky and balance it with the cool tones on the opposite sides in each. Exclude the sun because it would only distract from the scene. Catch both the surf and the rotating beacon at the decisive moment when they are both at peak interest. Process the RAW image in a way that does justice to the emotion and impact of the experience.
I am still learning how to do all of these things, and still looking forward to my next visit.

Did you really go to Maine if you don’t have a picture with this famous lighthouse? ⚓️
It was a short but amazing 2 days in Portland: we ate some amazing food, saw beautiful landscapes & had a lot of fun - see you soon Maine 🌊

Happy Labor Day!
This is the second post in my #Lighthouse trilogy. Made a quick stop at Portland en route to Acadia National Park way back in early July. Noticed this lighthouse quite a bit into the water away from the classic Portland Head Light composition.
Let’s just say I def do not regret waking up at 3:30 am for this sunrise shot (and the next post in this series)

Happy Labor Day!
This is the second post in my #Lighthouse trilogy. Made a quick stop at Portland en route to Acadia National Park way back in early July. Noticed this lighthouse quite a bit into the water away from the classic Portland Head Light composition. 
Let’s just say I def do not regret waking up at 3:30 am for this sunrise shot (and the next post in this series)
