This has been a great workshop so far.  Pouring rain and brisk wind kept us in today in the classroom, but that was a good thing and now our troops are ready to shoot!  We will take them to Somesville tomorrow to do some stream shooting and visit a beautiful old Civil War era grave yard.  This is a very good group of people and the excitement level has been great.  As the scripture says He will give us Rivers of Living Water and that spiritual promise has been true for me!  I feel certain this will end up being a great workshop for them.  We are off to a good start.




I’m often reminded how much He loves me, and how He has watched over me.  When the days get long, and the travel makes you weary, I find real rest in Him.




Blessings my friends,

Jack and I did some last day scouting this morning and found a great working commercial dock with tons of lobster floats and multicolored ropes!  This is the kind of fantastic color you can catch on the Maine coast.  It was very overcast with an occasional shower so the light was perfect!  I can’t wait to take our students to this location, it will be a great training ground for how to see and compose!!!!


See for yourself!








……and, as luck would have it, we found some more great fall foliage!

First day out in  the park at Acadia today, scouting and there is still some nice color.  With rain and wind predicted, we are praying some hold on for after this weather has passed!  The scene is some nice hillside color just above a small lake along the loop road.  I stood at this same lake with the late, great, John Netherton with students many years ago with just this kind of color!  It brought back some great memories!!


One thing is for sure, Jack and I will give this group everything we can so they can leave knowing they know more, had a great time and are glad they came!



More to come through the week!

Jim and I sweated out the color for weeks!  We should have trusted!  It was a spectacular fall, even locals said it was a banner year!  We had a fantastic group and not only shot a lot of fall color scenes but lots of other interesting subjects too!  I’m in Portland, Maine getting ready to join up with Jack Graham and do our Acadia Workshop that starts Wednesday evening. For today I thought I would share some of my personal favorites from Brown County!  Before I start, I have to say thank you again to Jim and Sue Haverstock who did an incredible ob getting things ready for us!


Here you go!



Then we had the chance to shoot a lot of great antique Americana subjects!



Lastly we went into town one evening at Frd Sisson’s suggestion and light painted the beautiful 30 foot tall fall leaf statue!



Needless to say I had a blast!  Now I can’t wait to get Acadia Started!!!
