Acadia National Park held a holiday open house at the Jordan Pond Gate Lodge this past Saturday. It is the first time this building has been open to the public and the Holiday decor made it extra festive. As did the unexpected snow!

Four Seasons

Recently Downeast Magazine asked if I had a series showing a location in 4 seasons. I love going back to the same place and showing it in different conditions or how it changes over time. So I knew I would have some. As I looked through my work I discovered that it was often hard to tell the difference between spring and summer. Or that often I had only 3 of the 4 seasons. And of course evergreens on a rocky coast only really show 2 seasons…snow and no snow! But one series of a pond in Acadia stood out and I had more than enough to choose from. After submitting a few different  locations the pond was the series they chose to run. And I am so happy they picked some of the images that show the weather. So often clients want only blue sky days but what says spring better than a soft spring rain on the pond. I can almost hear the whisper of the rain on the water when I look back at that image. Thanks Downeast for showing the real feel of the seasons! The following are the 4 images they choose.

DownEast Magazine ran this image in the “where in Maine?” section. Familiar scenes really do look different in winter!Hodges-2009-12downeast

They have revealed the location  in the magazine so now I can tell you it is Bass Harbor!

The Somesville Bridge in Somesville Maine on Mt Desert Island

Last winter my schedule and the snowstorms coincided nicely. I got to spend lots of time out taking photos of Mount Desert Island, Acadia National Park, and Bar Harbor Maine. It seemed to snow a little every night so each morning the landscape was fresh and white, and calling me outside to photograph more. This winter I have spent more time inside, at my computer,  and teaching, and in my studio. And among other things starting this blog. So, welcome! I plan to add content on a regular basis. I hope you’ll come back soon!
