You Gotta Go there!

Hey, when is the last time you went to a National Park?  One near you? Or one far away?  You Gotta Go There!  We are SO lucky to have such a wonderful National park right in our own ‘back yard’ here in New England.  I just got back from being there for five days and it was just wonderful.  Of course it helps when the weather is as perfect as it was for us this time.  Perhaps one of my best visits there regarding the weather.  We had great clouds and blue sky with a dash of fog thrown in for good measure.
The ‘trick’ of course is to go early in the day.  Can you say 4am?  That’s what it took to get these two sunrises.

But, of course it’s not just about sunrises alone at Acadia.  One of my other favorite spots in the park is Jordan Pond.  It’s a great little pond with two mountains at the opposite end with rocks in the foreground. How easy is that for a great photo? in this case I took a photo of an old tree that had fallen into the edge.

Time for true confessions…..As I walk around Jordan Pond taking photos I have one thing on my mind…and that’s dining at the restaurant there so that I can have one of their signature desserts.  Ice cream sundae Popover.  I’m still working it off……

But really, You Gotto Go and enjoy our National Parks!

Back From The Smokys!

The Dogwoods of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are just great to photograph and arguably one of my favorite subjects while there.  Simple yet brilliant against the new green grass and leaves of spring.  Hard to beat!  Photographers will use every lens in their bag from wide angles to macros to long telephotos.

Dogwood, Smokys, trees, Spring

The many streams, cabins, scenics, wildlife, sunrises and sunset keep a photographer very busy! But I like it! Worth the trip for someone wanting to see one of our country’s most visited National Parks!
