Wild River Maine Photographs

On our way back from The Forks, Maine we stayed over a couple of nights in the Gorham, NH area where I revisited the Wild River in Maine to make photographs. This is on the New Hampshire - Maine border. I have previously photographed this area and was looking forward to the revisit.

The weather only cooperated for a day as there was a lot of rain the other day we were there. We went to the Wild River area in the evening, around 5:30 and stayed until about 8:00 pm, taking advantage of "quiet light." I learned the term "quiet light" when taking a John Sexton workshop at Anderson Ranch in Colorado in 2000. The light is directional and can emanate from a large area such as the sky. Generally there is no direct sunlight present.

Two images made during this time are shown:
