“An island of calm in a sea of uncertainty…”


I spent a little time last week down at the shore, putting together example images for next month’s Light and Landscape Member’s Area lesson plan.  This photo was a happy little by-product of the trip.  And by happy, of course, I mean angry skies. haha  We’ve been having some strange weather lately.  This morning, the second day of spring, we woke up to 4+ inches of snow in the back yard…but that’s New England for ya!

If you’re interested in getting any info about our teaching program and photography community, you can contact us at .  We’d be happy to give you the overview and answer your questions!  You can also check out a small sampling of some of our student’s work in the next issue of Light and Landscape Magazine, the number one landscape photography magazine on iTunes. 🙂  You can find it in the newsstand app!

The settings, for those interested: 10 mm, 4 seconds, ISO 100, f/11, grad ND

    A gorgeous image that demonstrates how a portrait landscape can work better than the traditional landscape. Hard it imagine it not being like this so a well chosen process. Time to give my landscapes the portrait treatment 🙂

      Aww, thanks for the kind words! I definitely felt like I needed to showcase those clouds in this case, so I agree, it had to be portrait! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment!

      Thank you so much! I had a lot of fun playing around on the shore with my filters, and certainly am glad I was able to walk away with something useable! 🙂
