Water Droplets on Chrysanthemum Water Droplets on Chrysanthemum

I was shooting this Chrysanthemum early one morning. It was just wet enough that I wasn't completely satisfied with the results. So, using a small, empty eyeglass cleaner spray bottle, I applied a light mist of water to the mum until the image results were more exciting. This shot was taken handheld.

Maine Woods Picture Maine Woods Picture

The low-growing ferns are displaying their fall yellow color while the trees in this Maine clearing remain green. This 1/8 second 135mm shot was taken handheld.

Saint Patricks Cathedral, New York City Saint Patricks Cathedral, New York City

Saint Patricks Cathedral in New York City is a spectacular piece of architecture. The problem, from a photographical standpoint, is that it is always full of people. The solution is to shoot upwards. The other problem is that it is extremely dark inside. Image stabilization allowed this picture to be taken handheld.

Rainbow Over Atlantic Ocean Rainbow Over Atlantic Ocean

A small but strong storm moves off the coast of Acadia National Park / Mt Dessert Island, Maine, USA producing a rainbow for all to see.

Christmas Balls in the Water Christmas Balls in the Water

New York City has some of the greatest Christmas decorations. These giant Christmas balls are stacked in a fountain across the corner from Radio City Music hall. I was sitting on the side of the fountain shooting handheld for this 1/3 second shot.

50mm  f/8.0  1/80s  ISO 100
Soccer Kick Soccer Kick

A flying young lady is about to put her all into a soccer kick on goal. Fast action directly approaching the camera is one of the hardest subjects for AI Servo AF to keep up with. The 7D does a nice job with this. This is a select shot out of a long burst of shots.

300mm  f/2.8  1/1250s  ISO 100
House Reflecting Sunset Picture House Reflecting Sunset Picture

Large windows on this house reflect the sunset-caused orange sky. This picture was shot handheld in a crouched position with a 1-second shutter speed.

85mm Headshot 85mm Headshot

85mm on an APS-C/1.6x body is a great focal length for head shot style portraits. With this lens, zoom out to 15mm and grab an environmental portrait at the same time.

85mm  f/5.6  1/80s  ISO 160
Number 9 - Stage Performance Picture Number 9 - Stage Performance Picture

A little girl numbered "9" performs her part in a stage presentation. The 70-200 f/2.8 L IS lens is a great choice for photographing low light events such as this one.

Green on the ground and a heavy tree trunk 1/3 of the way into the frame anchor this otherwise busy but colorful woods scene.

17mm  f/8.0  1/30s  ISO 100
Reflection at Asticou Azalea Gardens Reflection at Asticou Azalea Gardens

The sky was much brighter than the foreground in this picture. To bring balance to the image, I exposed so that the histogram was pushed as far right as possible without blowing the highlights. I then stacked the original exposure and a reduced exposure in Photoshop as layers and erased the top layer where it made sense to allow the bottom layer to show through.

Back Road in Acadia National Park Back Road in Acadia National Park

A light/misting rain created great conditions for fall foliage photography in Acadia National Park this day. This particular framing avoided the unattractive solid gray sky. A level camera position keeps the trees straight up and down in the frame. This location is near Echo Lake Beach.

The sun sets over the very-photogenic plumes of Maiden Grass.

After Sunset Soccer Picture After Sunset Soccer Picture

Having an f/2 aperture at this focal length is simply great to have for low light action. Of course, the amazing image quality and fast AF that come with this lens are excellent to have as well.

The Soccer Follow-through The Soccer Follow-through

A young soccer player directs the ball to the goal with her eyes after the kick. I love late-day sunlight for sports photography (and many other types of photography as well).

300mm  f/2.8  1/1250s  ISO 125
Saint Patricks Cathedral Saint Patricks Cathedral

As I have said before, getting good images at Saint Patricks Cathedral in New York City is hard. This is not because of the the architecture itself (it is amazing), but because of the huge crowds typically in the building. So once again, I shot up to avoid the other visitors.

32mm  f/5.6  1/8s  ISO 1600

A large house sits on the rocks near the Bar Harbor, Maine coast.

Acadia National Park Silhouette Acadia National Park Silhouette

The location for this particular Acadia National Park silhouette is on the west side of Sand Beach. I exposed the image so that the brightest clouds were nearly blown (pure white, RGB = 255, 255, 255). This allowed plenty of detail in the shadows for the final adjustments in Canon's Digital Photo Pro.

21mm  f/8.0  1/30s  ISO 100
Horizontal Tree in Yellow Horizontal Tree in Yellow

A yellow-leaf-clad tree growing horizontally curves through the photo while the rock provides a base for the frame. Acadia National Park is full of not-well-known photo opportunities such as this.

Lobster Trap Buoys Lobster Trap Buoys

Bright yellow and green lobster trap buoys stand out against the wet dock in Northest Harbor, Maine. There are an incredible number of these floating around Mt Dessert Island/Acadia National Park, Maine. Each lobsterman's buoys are uniquely color coded for identification.

Champlain Mountain Rock (and a Cairn) Champlain Mountain Rock (and a Cairn)

The top of Champlain Mountain, Acadia National Park, has lots of great rock formations. And lots of Cairns. Cairns are stacks of stones to mark the trails. The Cairns are typically placed where they are especially visible including locations that will leave them silhouetted to hikers. I was trail running/photographing one evening and liked how the lines in the stones somewhat matched the lines in the clouds, so I made a few images.
