Maine Day 6 – B-52 Crash Site

Elephant Mountain, Maine

Today was a bad day. It rained off and on making some places we wanted to go to nearly impossible.

Originally we went out looking for Moose. We have done this many times before and have yet to see one in the wild. We did make it to a park and got close to some deer but still no Moose.

So with no luck again we move on to another spot to see something different.

Maine Day 5 – Edgar M. Tennis Preserve

Today we did not do too much in the way of adventures. We did, however, go to Deer Isle Maine to the Edgar M. Tennis Preserve for a nice hike.

The weather thankfully was nice and cool with some cloud cover and no rain. We arrived at the preserve around 11:00am and started our hike promptly after arriving.

There is an old cemetery along the hike which we checked out before hitting

Maine Day 4 – Travel Day

Travel Day

Today was a Travel Day. Not much going on. We visited a couple Maine Fish and Wildlife locations. After we got to our hotel and settled in we got dinner and went into Acadia.

We went to Cadillac Mountain and I took a few star shots before returning to the hotel for the night.


Maine Day 3 - Kittery and Beyond

Kittery Outlets, Kittery Maine

Today was a slow day. We did not do much worth talking about. We drove to Kittery to the outlet stores.

They wanted to go to the Trading Post and see what it was like. When we walked in I was blown away by how much stuff was in the building.

It was three floors packed with stuff from clothing, hunting, camping, fishing, food, and tons more. We spent a good two hours or more looking around at all the stuff.

I had a lot of fun just looking at all the crazy stuff they had. If I had the money I probably would have bought some ok the crazy items for family members.

Old Orchard Beach

Once we were done at the Trading post and had lunch we decided our next location was going to be Old Orchard Beach. My brother wanted to see if we could find some Piper Plovers.

When I was reading about them online I mistook what an article said and thought that they leave after a certain time of the year. This lead to my mistake of leaving my camera and telephoto lens behind in the car and just taking a 50mm lens.

The weather was bad with a constant mist blowing about. I figured if any Plovers were here they would be in hiding. Yet I was wrong again and we did finally come across two Piper Plovers running around on the beach.

No matter what I tried I could not get anywhere near them that a 50mm lens would make a decent picture.

While walking the beach after playing hide and seek with the Plovers we came across all kinds of thing strewn about. We came across a dead decaying seagull and many crab claws plus a lobster claw.

L.L. Bean

After we finished at the beach we headed back to L.L. Beans again to pick up a small backpack for a hike we will be doing later this week on Deer Isle.

I shot more video for my YouTube channel while in there. If you want to check it out you can head over to my channel and see all the videos I have done for this trip.

New project

I have started a new project to not only help people with their photography, but also help myself with my writing skills. I started a new blog that's separate from this one, since it is focused on helping/teaching people and this one is for my personal portfolio/photography.

You can find it here at I have already posted one article and plan to post one per week. Check it out and let me know what you think. Thanks!

Where is the snow

So it have been a very disappointing winter so far in New Jersey. Not one flake of snow. I was hoping to be able to go out and get some shots of snow covered trees and such. Well winter is not over yet, but there is still a chance. 


Hope everyone is safe and sound on this thanksgiving. Have a great day!
