Visiting Maine in the Fall is probably one of the best gifts that you can give yourself, time and time again. In the Fall of 2018 and most recently in 2022, I attended a photo workshop organized by my photography mentor, Eddie Soloway and attended by me and a few other people, all serious photography buffs. The place was Lake Nahmakanta, which is located in the north woods of Maine, a beautiful, godly, serene, immaculate wilderness piece of land I had never seen before.
One week here can teach you a lot of things about photography. Some of my best abstract images were taken here, but being at the lake also taught me to appreciate life even more, from the smallest mushroom (encountered while hiking), to the majestic beauty of the trees and lakes (encountered while lost!). From talking "photography shop" with new found friends, to getting up VERY early in the morning to capture the fog at a pond, or the moon over the lake, to going out on our own photography discoveries looking for water reflections on streams, this is what nature and landscape photographers do to show special places to you.
