Photo of the Week, September 26

1S2-3727b.jpg

This is the picture that almost got away. In color, I didn't think much of this image and almost deleted it, but I worked with it for about an hour, converting it to black-and-white, then making it into a duotone, and adjusting the contrast. I like the results so much, I put it in my book, Under October Skies. More than one person has told me this is their favorite picture of mine. And just yesterday I sold another print of this through Artemis Gallery (@artemisgalleryme) in Northeast Harbor, the second print of this image they've sold. I think this picture also proves the point that autumn foliage doesn't always have to be photographed in bright, blazing color.

I wrote about this image a year ago- click here to learn more about the prices involved in creating it.

Park Loop Road

One of the most beautiful drives you can do in Acadia is along Park Loop Road in the Autumn. Colorful foliage lines your way, sometimes arching over as an autumn canopy of yellows, reds and oranges. Along the way, you'll see hundreds and hundreds of "Rockefeller teeth," the rectangular slabs of granite that act as guard rails.

I used a small point and shoot camera, held out the window of my car, as I drove down Park Loop Road from the start of the one-way road near Cadillac Mountain, almost to the Great Meadow. Enjoy.
