Milky Way Rising Over The Raven's Roost

MW8A8476


Evening folks…'Milky Way Rising Over The Raven's Roost' when I headed to Schoodic this past week, this was the photograph I was after…Happy It took 3 nights to get the shot since, the alignment of the Milky Way was only there for about an hour. The best time was at around 10 PM, the first night a band of clouds came in at sunset and remained until around 11 PM. The second night a fog bank rolled in. And on the last night I was able to get the shot in just before a storm came in from the West. I can't wait to see what this one looks like on metal!

Schoodic Eagle

MW8A8293


Evening folks… it wasn't all about the landscape up on Schoodic. One morning I spotted this eagle perched on some rocks and spent about 30 minutes photographing it. In this photo it was talking to it's mate that had just flown into view and perched in a tree about 1/4 mile away. Shortly after this photo this eagle joined it's mate…Happy
