I love the coast around Acadia; I could spend all day just watching the waves- the explosive power of the ocean right in front of your eyes. The bigger the better!

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.
It's hard to keep up with all the social media channels- Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, etc. I make my living in photography and have a hard time keeping up with everyone- amateurs and professionals alike- who posts to social media regularly. After all, I plow through 500-5,000 photos a week and it's hard to find the time to update my blog, post to social media, as well as spend time with my wife and kids. There has to be balance in life. It's not all about photography...
But while I've resisted Twitter (do I really need to tell you what I'm doing in 140 words or less?) and Snapchat (why?), I bowed to the pressure and jumped into Instagram a few months ago. While my posts have been sporadic until recently, I've got a wealth of images to share and plan on posting on a regular basis now. I'll also occasionally be posting discount offers for my books and large prints.
Having just returned from two recent trips to Acadia, I have plenty of new images to show you. Stay tuned, and follow me on my new Instagram page:
