Our streak of great weather ended and the rain has taken over at my Acadia Photography Workshop. We spent yesterday afternoon and this morning in the classroom, talking about light and looking at some of the photos we have made so far. It is always fun to look at photos made by everyone in the workshop, we are all at the same places but invariably come away with different images. Again, people had their own vision and saw things I didn’t. It was fun looking at what we had created so far.
This afternoon we braved the light rain and went down along Somes fjord and had lunch in the cute village of Northeast Harbor. We stopped along the fjord where we made some fun photos of the gray day and shot around the marina in Northeast Harbor. I saw a lone tree isolated against the foggy shore and loved the way it stuck out.
When we left Northeast Harbor we stopped at the beautiful Asticou Gardens, even though there was still mist falling. I’ve seen the garden looking much better but there is always something to shoot there. I focused on some raindrops that lined up on a leaf. It can be tricky to get all the drops in focus, so I moved my tripod so I could get the most possible the same distance away from my lens so they would all be in focus. I worked on the drops for quite a while and came out of the rain with a photo that I really like.
