Maine Colors

Maine Colors

This beautiful little river sits along the road on the way to Pemaquid Lighthouse. We timed our visit to coincide with the peak fall colors. Each year I teach a workshop in Acadia National Park and I always allow a few extra days on each end to visit the Lighthouses and surrounding areas.
Path through the Birches

Path through the Birches

One of my favorite images from Acadia! The red leaves lining the path along with the white birch trees and green grasses all pull together to make this image an outstanding one!

Winter's Grip

As winter tightens it's grip on Kitchen Creek at Rickett's Glen State Park it creates a unique environment!
Winding Glen Meadow

Winding Glen Meadow

This image was made about a mile from my house. You truly don’t have to go to exotic locations to make great images. You just need to have an open mind and a creative eye. By adding a foreground element along with some morning mist in the valley it made for a strong composition!

Learning to Capture Light

by Ed Heaton

"Learning to Capture Light will make extraordinary images from ordinary subjects"! Each of the images displayed here were made in the 2010 calendar year from various locations around the east coast. All of the images were made with a Nikon D3 camera, Gitzo tripod and various Tamron Lenses. My Tamron lenses range from wide-angles to tele-photo with various apertures. As a professional photographer I believe it is very important to use your equipment properly and when done so you can achieve amazing results!
