Exploring Tilghman Island

Part of the fun of being in a new area is exploring – which in my case means looking for places to hike and interesting things to photograph.    This island is a BIG change from what I had become accustomed to on Mt. Desert Island, Maine.    Here the scenery is flat – flat land running into flat water running into flat sky.    Photographically it seems more challenging – looking for ways to convey that sense of flatness (which has a certain wide open beauty to it), without making it boring.    And of course photographing a bay compared to ocean surf crashing against the rocks, well that is a whole other challenge.

After an afternoon and morning shoot, I came up with the following series of black and white photographs that I think capture the mood of some of the landscapes near my new home.   I chose the black and white because when I compared them to the color images I produced, I just found the black and white to be more interesting.  Perhaps, I’ll post some of the color ones later and let you decide!

  1. Very nice photos. We stayed in St. Michael’s several years ago and spent time on Tilghman Island. It’s a lovely area. Jinny Wilt

  2. No perfect, black and white is good. It manages to capture something that colour can’t sometimes….
