I HOPE TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO PAUSE FOR A MOMENT,
ADMIRE THE CLOUDS, CLIMB THE MOUNTAIN, GAZE AT THE STARS,
TRAVEL TO THE DESTINATION YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO VISIT,
OR JUST GET OUT TO EXPLORE YOUR OWN BACKYARD.

Photography and play go hand in hand. On a recent trip to Lubec, Maine, the Easternmost place in the United States, we enjoyed nature walks, hiking, and spending the night outside. At Cobscook Bay State Park  we settled in early for the evening to enjoy the sunset and just be. 

I love to get out and explore! As those of you know who have done much hiking or backpacking, everything you carry becomes increasingly heavy as the day wears on. It does make you think about what you carry so as not to be weighed down. (A good exercise to consider when off the trail too. What we need, what we use, and all that we have are drastically different.) 

I rely on the natural light for my photography. I have been wanted to explore ways to bring some focused light into the image while still capturing everything in one frame. So play and trial and error it was. For this series of images I used the light of my headlamp to play with emphasizing Jared part of the environment surrounding him to tell a bit of the story. I always, always have a headlamp with me so I thought I would see how I might be able to use it. 

Here are a series of images as I played and captured the quiet evening in Maine. There is such beauty in the energy filled moments, but also in the quiet moments of stillness of a night under the stars. 

I started farther back to capture the surrounding environment of our home for the evening. And our beds too. Since it was going to rain we decided to just set up our sleeping bags on the picnic tables and use the shelter to keep us dry.

Getting a little closer you can see where we set up our beds too. Since it was going to rain we decided to just set up our sleeping bags on the picnic tables and use the shelter to keep us dry.

I moved in closer to capture the quiet, beauty of the evening. Also to capture Jared more intimately in the shelter along with the details of the carvings in the wood behind him. A beautiful night to soak it all in, create, listen to an audio book, and watch the sunset.
