I just returned from leading my Moose Country Photo Workshop. It was a lot of pictures, laughs and most of all fun. The days were long with a 4:30am sunrise and a sun that set around 8:40pm.
Over the weekend we saw 12 moose, 4 white tailed deer, snowshoe hares, red fox, several species of birds, wildflowers. We also photographed Common Loons, a nesting Osprey and Common Mergansers.
Several of the local residents reported seeing less moose that usual this year. Some of the reasons include Tick Infestations, Late Spring, Heavy Snowfall, increased hunting pressure. We did manage to see 12 moose but we worked for it. I guess you can’t go wrong in the Northern Forest.
We also had two amazing sunrise shoots. The first one was at Lake Francis with the sun rising thru the morning fog and another at first Connecticut Lake. We also did a sidetrip to Rangeley where we photographed more Moose, Rangeley Lake, and Height of the Land. Other subjects included a waterfall which looked great with the recent rainfall.
We visited several locations throughout Northern New Hampshire and Maine. Many miles of both dirt and paved roads near the Canadian Border.
The participants in the group were wonderful people that I would definitely now call friends. You got to be a little crazy to get on location before the sun even rises and spend the weekend taking pictures deep in the heart of moose country. It is nice to know I am not the only crazy one.
Thank you for attending.
Next year’s trip will be June 15-18, 2012 and will include a platoon boat wildlife ride on Lake Umbagog.
Stay in touch.

Black bear cubs climb trees when they feel threatened. This cub climbed the tree to avoid another larger bear. Sometimes they stay in the trees for hours waiting for their mother. This photo is a cub yawning but I would love to think he is smiling at me.
This year one of my main goals was to get photographs and observe Black Bears. I had several great opportunities to see these beautiful animals. Bears are some of my favorite subjects. I will be adding several more images and stories to go with them. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
