So the next time you wake up for a shoot pre-dawn and think maybe you should just roll over and go back to sleep, I wouldn’t recommend it. THIS is what I would have missed had I followed through with that very same thought when my alarm went off at 4:30 am.

Embracing Transition

When returning home from my extended October stay on the islands of Hawaii, I was anticipating disappointment over the loss of all of the beautiful leaves of our deciduous trees our trees. Instead, I was delighted that I was given a last glimpse of autumn when I came upon a beautiful maple tree, bursting with bright yellow leaves! And just 24 hours later temperatures dropped and met the dew point, resulting in a soft and moody mist that highlighted the naked trees of winter pending. Such is the ever-changing landscape of New England and I find I was happily reminded that I will never at a loss for stunning subject matter to photograph.

“At The End Of The Day, We Get What We Are Given”

“At The End Of The Day, We Get What We Are Given”
http://www.PatCorlinPhotography.com

Be it by Fate, Kismet, Karma, Mother Nature or the Universe, “At The End Of The Day, We Get What We Are Given.” It is up to we, the individuals, to decide to receive and celebrate them openly or turn from the gifts that are given freely by any of the multitude of “Higher Powers” that are believed in.

Yes, it is true. I had a freak and rather undignified accident that cut short my dream photography workshop on the Big Island with and and small circle of new friends. But the truth of it is, I hurt so bad that I knew, without a doubt, there was no continuing on the original track that I had so carefully planned. Instead, I found my way back to Oahu and was gifted with an additional, and somewhat painful ( I use the term lightly) week living with my daughter, in the Land of Far, Far Away! The tables had turned and it was she, taking care of me for the first time in our thirty years together. Much gratitude is extended to my Meagan who seemed to have a perfect mixture of endless patience and a stern (picture Nurse Ratchet 😉 yet respectful delivery of all doctors orders!

And yet, at the end of my last day with her, my son-in-law and the generous roomies, I felt sad that my “extended” stay was coming to an end. While finishing packing my bags, I looked out the back slider at the “muted” skies of early dusk, starting to feel a bit sorry for myself that I did not get to capture my “imagined spectacular” sunset on the Big Island. Disappointment was spreading in my heart that fate had taken that opportunity from me, and I turned away from the water, admittedly pouting. Not fifteen minutes later, Meagan calls from the back yard … “MOM, OMG, come QUICK!” And there, before our eyes, was THE most spectacular sunset! The one I “almost missed because I had impatiently chosen to turn away. I hobbled back in the house, grabbed the camera, lens be what it may, and limped down my first flight of stairs in a week and a half to throw myself on my belly on the dock. And there I had the honor of capturing “What I Was Given.” Once again filled with joy and grateful; for the many gifts given to me from “The Powers That Be.”

“Today We Welcome The Green”

Spring in New England can often feel elusive after a long, hard winter. This spring has proven to be such in that we have had little in the way of really warm, sunny days. However Spring, mo matter how long in coming, will not be stopped. In New Hampshire the trees have finally dropped their buds and the bright green leaves have exploded on our trees … seemingly all at once! Today we find ourselves welcoming the green! 2014 Pat Corlin Photography All Rights Reserved http://www.PatCorlinPhotography.com

“Waiting For The Grass To Grow”

Here in the state of New Hampshire, our haying season is a fairly short one. We just barely can squeeze in a second cut before the weather gets to cold at night and the grasses stop growing. If we are lucky we may get a stellar third cut and that hay often stays green in the barn throughout the entire winter. This spring is no different. The snows have melted and the grasses have sprouted. We all wait anxiously and “at the ready” for it to reach the right height. Then we begin to pray for  a few days of dry weather to cut it, fork it, dry it, bale it and put it up! Let’s hope this is a three cut summer!

Whaleback Lighthouse

Fort Foster, Kittery, Maine

At the mouth of the Piscataqua River, sits the historic Whaleback Lighthouse, built in 1872 to replace the original light, heavily damaged by storms. It is built of granite, a stone quite common in New Hampshire and Maine, and is not painted. Some say this is the least glamorous of light houses but I actually love the way look as it compliments the natural beauty of the Northeastern Atlantic coast.

My Office Today …

“Something Wonderful, Just Around The Bend”

A beautiful spring morning while at work in Exeter, New Hampshire. While working on one project in Newfields I had a bit of time to spare so I drove just a bit further down the road and look what I found! One of my favorite things to do when out photographing is take a road I’ve never driven before or go a little bit further down the road than I was originally planning on. I am never disappointed as there’s alway’s something wonderful to photograph “Just Around The Bend.”

“My Office Today”

Quite a mix today of sun, blustery clouds, sprinkles of rain, fog, melting snow and ice, rushing rivers and some serious waterfalls … Spring At Last!
