Posted By: MRRiley, 10-15-2010, 01:50 PM

Here is another set of shots from our Maine trip...

B&W version of "Pebbles Awash on Little Hunters Beach" - DA*16-50mm


Little Hunters Beach Surf - DA*16-50mm


Lakeside Birch Trees - DA*60-250mm


Not so Itsy Bitsy Spider - I walked right under this beastie before I saw him... - DA*60-250mm


Twin Birch Trunks - DA*16-50mm


Maple Leaf - DA*60-250mm

Both sets of pics are superb, Mike - looks like a fun trip Been to Maine twice, but haven't made it to Acadia yet. Thanks for posting these! Oh, and who needs a foreground when you get dawn skies like that?

Thanks Jim! It was a gorgeous sunrise but the "formalist" in me cries out for a foreground element... LOL And if you ever get the chance to go to Acadia, DO NOT PASS IT UP!

Hey, these are great, Mike. I particularly like the maple leaf and birch tree shots - great examples of making everyday subject really special.

Superb photos, Mike. I especially like the water photos, but they're all excellent. The dawn clouds are stunning!

Thanks Heinrich! I'd never been there before and was amazed how beautiful it is.

Thanks! It took several shots to capture just the right pattern and luminousity. And a couple of the waves soaked me up to the ankles. Good thing I had dry socks and shoes in the car.

I like this set a lot. "Pebbles Awash", "Little Hunters Beach Surf" and "Maple Leaf" are great in my opinion. Very inspiring.
