Joan and I traveled to Maine with friends Kim and Gary Amatrudo to spend a week photographing scenery and moose.  Well, the moose were very uncooperative this trip and so we got lots of gorgeous fall pics.  We had a couple of days before the leaves started to fall that provided rich, saturated colors.  We arose early each morning to look for moose and to catch the sunrise on Mt Katahdin. Here is a sunrise on Katahdin as seen from Sunday Pond.

We hiked about a mile back in to one of our favorite scenic and moose places and caught the golden light of early morning on the mountain.  Shortly after the golden light disappeared-we had a beautiful reflection of the mountain in the pond.

One day we had nice cloud cover so that we had filtered light to shoot some leaves up a back road without the distracting light shafts coming through the foliage.

On teh way home we stopped at a couple of Lighthouses.  here is a view of Pemaquid from the rock ledges below the light house.
