Bull

I loved taking images of this large bull moose who was probably only 20 to 30 feet away from me.  I tried different settings and since he wasn’t moving quickly and posed for his shots it gave me a chance to practice with my new 80 to 400mm Nikon lens.  For this image, although the lighting was not the best, I had time to practice with my ISO and my aperture settings.  I was pleased with the results.

Dead Trees in Sunlight

This was a quick shot taken by the side of the Golden Road, in Millinocket.  The dead trees had a beautiful warm sidelit glow coming from the setting sun.  The pond gave a glimpse of a reflection and new growth sprung up everwhere in the form of new trees and purple flowers.

A review in our critique session using Lightroom taught me how to bring up the warm sunlight as well as how to saturate the foreground and background and enhance the light blue sky.  It was an invaluable lesson in how Lightroom, in a few easy steps, brought out the best in this image.

Katahdin Under Cloud

This image was taken inside Baxter State Park near one of the many ponds in the park.  I used a Nikon D90 with the 18-200mm lens, an F-Stop of 5.6 at 40mm to catch the wide expanse of Mt. Katahdin.  I like the combination of the water, the green vegetation and the slope of the mountain catching the evening sun.

Bull Moose In The Rain

This is an image of a bull moose shedding his winter coat and developing a new set of antlers.  He was grazing in the field when we came upon him.  It was raining out so we needed to cover our gear and ourselves. This moose was a short distance from the road and a passing truck caught his attention.  I used my 80-400 mm Nikon lens, with an f-Stop of 5.6 and ISO  200 to get this shot.

Great North Woods #1 2013 – Jean

This was in the Boat Tour we took on Millinocket Lake.  I saw this at the last minute when we were coming back in and was struck by the starkness of the lone tree sticking up out of the lake with the trees behind it!  It just caught me with the many layers!  I exposed for the sky to make the tree almost shadow, but brought up some of the detail in Lightroom.
