Eagle Lake Driftwood in the Fog

Eagle Lake Driftwood in the fog. Yesterday morning: 70 seconds at f/8.0, iso 200. 17 mm on Canon 17-40 f/4.0, 5D mkII, B+W ND 110.

Happy spring everybody! We're deep into one of my favorite times of year here in Acadia for photography, the spring fog season- yay! Fog has such a great way of wrapping everything in cinematic drama and mystery and makes the ordinary look extraordinary. At least that's what I think. Fog also has a great transformative potential of changing the look of this small big island that I have been photographing on for the last 13 years- just when you think you've photographed everything: the fog rolls in like a team of gifted Hollywood set designers and the stage is transformed and the images just keep on coming. That's the beauty of any weather to a photographer, weather is the spice that makes the jambalaya, weather is the window dressing, weather is the soul of landscape imagery. And fog is my jambalaya! The other reason, and most important one to me, that I love love love fog is that it really helps to simplify a scene. The floating mists will help keep distracting details and elements to a minimum and tames some of the chaos that is nature, and I can pursue more minimal landscapes and then play the #MinimalMonday game hosted by my good buddy Olivier Du' Tre over on the Google Plus. Good times! So this one was a driftwood stump that I found out on the shores of Eagle Lake yesterday morning going for a walk in the fog looking for minimisma- I photographed this stump and shoreline here for a good 30 to 45 minutes standing up to my knees in the lake making little changes as to how it was laying on the stones, good times!

Right then- that's it for me for now, have a fine week everybody, stay safe out there, and make great work whatever it is you do. Stay tuned for my big-time announcement of a crazy new and exciting job I signed on for just last week after my previous big plans suddenly changed- Crazy! New! Exciting! -Bye for now, Nate!

How to become an Interior Designer: The first step is to decide what type of design you want to specialize in. Do you want to design residential spaces, or commercial ones?

You can do this by interning with a design firm, or working as a assistant designer. This will give you a chance to learn the ropes and see if this is the right career for you. If you find that you love it, then the next step is to get a degree in interior design from an accredited school. After graduation, you’ll be ready to start your own firm or work for an established one. With hard work and dedication, you can build a successful career as an interior designer.

Japandi is a design style that combines the best of Japanese and Scandinavian aesthetics. Japandi interiors are characterized by clean lines, minimalism, and a focus on natural materials. Wood is a key element in japandi design, both for its beauty and its ability to create a sense of calm. Japandi style also incorporates elements of nature, such as plants and stones. This creates an overall feeling of harmony and balance. While the japandi look is often minimalist, it can also be cozy and inviting. The key is to create a space that feels both functional and beautiful. With its simple elegance, japandi is a perfect style for any home.
