Experience Cape Cod Bay Sunset at Day Ends

May 22nd, 2024

Experience Cape Cod Bay Sunset at Day Ends

I regularly visit the beaches of Cape Cod Bayfor sunset photography. Needless to say sunsets never disappoint here. No difference on one of my latest trips where I photographed at Skaket Beach. This was a new beach and it took a bit of time and exploring before settling on a pleasing composition. I finally succeeded when I found some nice beach grass leading into the picture. While the sun was nearing the horizon colors in the sky exploded. A saturated blue with clouds colored in pink and orange dominated the sky. The spectacle was beautifully reflected in the Cape Cod Bay and beach. I used a split ND filter to balance the bright sunset sky with the darker foreground directly in front of me. Aperture setting was f/14 providing a shutter speed of half a second at ISO100. During routine post processing I adjusted lighting, contrast, color saturation before removing imperfections and sharpening the final Cape Cod photography image of

New England Northern Lights Aurora Borealis Photography in Massachusetts

Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis displaying its vibrant colors and brilliance over the Martha-Mary Chapel at the Wayside Inn Historic District in Sudbury Massachusetts. This was my first stop on a nightlong New England Northern Lights photography adventure that also lead me to Walden Pond, Sudbury River in Wayland, and the North Bridge at the Minute Man National Historic Park in Concord, MA.

Sunset Nature Photography at Echo Lake in Maine Acadia National Park

May 17th, 2024

Sunset Nature Photography at Echo Lake in Maine Acadia National Park

Echo Lake in Maine Acadia National Park is located on Mount Desert Island- south of Somesville and just a short drive north of Southwest Harbor. The fresh water lake is shadowed by the soaring Beech Cliffs that rise vertically from the banks of the lake. Visiting the lake at sunset makes for a peaceful and calm outdoor experience. The views of the lake with the mountains is straight out of a magazine. I stopped here a couple of times but never captured the photography image I envisioned. On my most recent photo tour to Acadia National Park I was on my way to a different location but was running late and about to miss the magic light. I spontaneously decided to stop at this nature delight and take my chances. I knew about the rocks and figured it should make for great composition when effectively used as dominant foreground features that lead the viewer into the picture.

Upon arrival I found my spot and set up tripod and camera. A wide angle lens provided the extensive view of the lake with surrounding mountains. In order to overcome the high contrast between dark foreground and bright sky I applied a Graduated Neutral Density Filter in the field. In addition a Neutral Density Filter lengthened the overall exposure to multiple seconds. Aperture setting was f/8, providing a long exposure value of 30 seconds at ISO400.

Using photoshop I combined 3 photos with different exposure times into a final HDR Photography image. During post processing I removed image imperfections, adjusted lighting, color saturation and contrast before sharpening the final image of Echo Lake.

This classic New England fine art photography picture is available as museum quality photo prints, canvas prints, acrylic prints or metal prints. Fine Art Prints may be framed and matted to the individual liking and decorating needs.

This nature photography picture is also available for photo image licensing through Roth Galleries.

Good light and happy photo making!

A technique to photograph the day to day in an unusual different way is called intentional camera movement.

Old State House and Clock Tower of Boston

Old State House and Clock Tower of Boston

The Old State House in Boston is a historic building that many local and traveling photographers visit to capture in a beautiful picture that lasts a lifetime. It is a challenging undertaking as it is buried in modern and old architecture. The Custom House of Boston with its Clock Tower is dominates the cityscape. I tried many compositions and decided that Landscape over Portrait Format works best. Busy State Street and Washington Street intersect next to the State House and it is not easy to capture an image at those long exposures without any >>> LEARN MORE

Cape Cod Stage Harbor Lighthouse Photography By Juergen Roth

Cape Cod Stage Harbor Lighthouse Photography By Juergen Roth

For this Stage Harbor lighthouse photograph I arrived late at Harding's beach parking lot; the sun was already setting. I immediately was side tracked by a hand full of kite surfers. It was a struggle to freeze the surfers because of their fast speed and my camera's low shutter speed. I adjusted my camera ISO setting to allow for faster shutter speeds and continued shooting. Although there was some waste produced in the end I got the shots of the Nantucket Sound kite surfers hat I was hoping for. Meanwhile the tide was coming in strong and I was a little worried about getting back in the dark after shooting the lighthouse. Nonetheless .... continued in my nature photography blog Where in the World is Juergen?.

Flower Fine Art Photography

Flower Fine Art Photography

This photo shows another typical set up at home when I am photographing flowers. I often use a white or black background to keep it simple and eliminate any disturbing distractions in the background. In our example here I used a black cardboard as the backdrop, which also added elegance and made the yellow orchid flowers really pop. I prefer to set up my close up photo studio next to our dining room window because it provides beautiful lighting ... read more on my Nature Photography Blog
