Sailing Penobscot Bay

October 04, 2021  •  3 Comments

Friends have a sailboat in Rockland, Maine and they invited me out to sail on Penobscot Bay for the day.

Morning started with sunrise from Mount Battie in the Camden Hills State Park.

The sun is rising over the mountains of Acadia National Park and Camden Harbor is on the right.

For the black and white images, I used an Ilford HP 5 Plus "film recipe" from Ritchie Roesch as a starting point with the Fuji X-E3. Thanks to Mr. Roesch

This event is back for 2021 and here is the poster!

If you can't read it in the small size, the car is a 1930 Packard 745 Convertible Sedan by Dietrich. Here is a look behind the scenes at the photo session last November.

Without a polarizing filter to remove windshield glare.

As you can see, we tried a few different settings.

Taken at the "wrong" angle, and this long car looks very short.

With the light disappearing, the car heads off into the sunset. On the other side of the gate in the background are the buildings where the cars are stored. This Saturday cars will be on display inside (and outside, weather permitting) those buildings.

This 1947 Delahaye 135-M Roadster by Figoni & Falaschi was the subject of the 2014 poster.

There is another fundraiser as part of this event and I'll explain that in the next post.

Winter 2021

March 20, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Now that it is officially spring, I have waited long enough to show snowy winter pictures.

Mount Washington from Sweden, Maine.

Sucker Brook, West Lovell, Maine. A sucker is a kind of fresh water fish.

The Shawnee Peak Ski Area on Pleasant Mountain in Bridgton, Maine from Moose Pond.

The next image is a lurid tail of life and death in the wilds. Yes, the were drops of blood in the snow above that animal's hole.

Mount Jefferson from Pinkham Notch.

The Great Glens snow coach coming back down the Mount Washington Auto Road.

Goose Eye Mountain from Berlin, New Hampshire

And the northern Presidentials from Berlin, New Hampshire.

Mount Meader from the Basin, North Chatham, New Hampshire.
