"All I Ever Wanted"
There's probably nothing better then a cup of coffee when its pitch dark outside and I’m trying to get my body to wake up so I can go see the next sunrise on the coast.
I watch the steam coming from a wide mug and my mind begins to race thinking about the upcoming shoot. I’m ninja quiet - trying not to wake up my wife, and especially now, my two early risers, my sons Beckham and Kingston. At two and four years old, for some reason, they refuse to sleep in and either beat me to the kitchen or stumble in right after me, way before the first rays of sun.
As a photographer, every morning I hope the sunrise will be the way I planned it, based on the weather forecast and multitude of data from various apps, sites and blogs. Then there are times, like during our fall vacation in Acadia, I go out every morning no matter what.
The Mount Desert coast has a special spell on me - the sounds of every breaking wave, the smell of salty air, the green, red and yellow foliage and of course my favorite, the cliffs. It's everything that makes Acadia National Park and the entire Maine coast so attractive for millions of visitors each year. I’m drawn to firestone, when the eastern sun lights up the rocks, cliffs and boulders with a fiery orange color - it is where I feel the most connected to nature, where I belong to earth, where I get my inspiration as an artist.
On this October morning the light did not show up until several minutes after sunrise - fast moving clouds allowed for a very brief opening for East Coast skyfire, warming up the entire coast line within seconds. It actually changed intensely several times so patience paid off. This is a very known location near Newport Cove on Ocean Drive and to me, this is quintessential Acadia, bold, beautiful, rugged, adventurous and soulful.

"Illusion Of Symmetry"
Corn lilies near Mount Rainier, Washington
On the way down from hiking the most majestic mountain I have ever seen, I stopped for several minutes to photograph these poisonous (found out later) plants that carpet both sides of the trail.

"Desire"
Alarm goes off as planned at 2 AM. 
I quickly gather my gear, slam a can of Red Bull to wake up my body and walk to our hotel reception area to meet Marc Adamus and the rest of our team. One of the reasons I love Marc's trips is spontaneity that he brings based on changing weather or various information that will get us the best possible light or conditions for shooting. This night I was looking forward to have a "moment" with Milky Way and majestic Reiner, as the galactic center perfectly aligned with the mountain, heading straight up to the stars. 
After looking at the satellite on his phone, Marc's next words send us all back to bed as the cloud cover made our planned shoot impossible. Sleep? Me? I just had Red Bull! I can't sleep - I'm wired! 
Two hours later we are hiking with our headlamps in hopes of some sort of sunrise - the flower season at Rainier was way ahead of nature's schedule, usually coming to bloom sometime late in summer, so we would get a rare opportunity to see it's glorious beauty in June. Marc’s genuine enthusiasm fuels every step we make. 
Flowers although very patchy were beautiful. I throw my bag on the ground and spend the next twenty minutes attempting to find composition - desire and excitement of getting my own flower/ mountain shot quickly turns into panic, as I cant find what I’m looking for. I finally settle up in the same exact spot I started with and what seems like forever ago now, just to witness most glorious alpenglow. The red-pink-purple light almost danced around the top of Rainier, reflecting everywhere, illuminating and bouncing off the snow covered top, foliage and white flowers in front of me.

"Aftershock"
First day, first night shooting during my epic trip to the Northwest. Weather was not cooperating for any sort of light, as the coast was covered in deep wet fog. Seal Rocks are magnificent rock formations in central Oregon just a few miles outside the town of Newport - so what the heck, cant make the weather always perfect, so we decided to climb them anyways! Fortunately for us,  just after few minutes the sun broke through and so did the beautiful blue sky. 
The ocean was almost still. Which was another "blow" to our outing, as we were hoping to see the Pacific ocean displaying some sort of passion, haha. Well, after taking a series of shots, rogue waves found me just like they do in Maine. There were four of us, perched up on the wet rocks, composing shots, making small talk  - but only I got hit with a giant wave in the face. Three times. Maybe more. I ran out of dry towels and rags and any sort of dry clothing on my body.
And I thought Pacific Ocean was warmer then Atlantic!

"Breathe In"
My memories of this shot will always be associated with freezing cold feet. 
I never thought the water can be so cold despite the fact I do live in Maine after all and our ocean is not exactly of Bora Bora temperatures. 
Marc Adamus did advise to wear waders and neoprene socks but somehow I took it as if was to do that, I would automatically become classified as a sissy. So here I am in the old sneakers and ankle length socks standing in the most beautiful fast moving stream - thinking at what point will I lose my legs. 
I never had a chance before to shoot a waterfall midstream - or any waterfall of this grander for that matter , so to tell you I was in owe for an extended length of time is an understatement. 
Panther Creek Falls is located in Gifford Pinchot National Forest Washington and consists of two drops - this is being the smaller of the two. In order to get here we had to do some intense hiking, climbing and scaling of almost vertical rocks - at times grabbing vines and tree branches to maneuver down.

Frozen Spirit
Brief sky clearing at the top of Mount Washington reveals ice and snow covered Observatory structures. Wind chill of -45 with gusts exceeding 80mph made it very difficult to shoot . This is a handheld exposure laying on the ground and all, trying to focus through fogged up goggles.

"Redemption"
The night before this day I missed the biggest sunset of our October vacation in Acadia. You know the one when the sky explodes in all sorts of red, pink and magenta. The one that takes your breath away and sometimes even makes you forget to click your camera's shutter. 
The reason that I missed it, is I dropped my camera in the lake and a bunch of stuff stopped working, so it spent a day or more in the bag full of rice. By the way that trick really works - not only with cameras but with phones as well, just put your soaked electronic gadget on the top of rice bed inside of a closed container overnight or longer. 
So as you can see from this shot, sunset did not let me down. 
This is Otter Point - not the usual more crowded sunset watching area, but a little more to the north. I loved all sorts of lines, shapes and amazingly colorful rock formations here - I can spend hours exploring. 
Waves were high and loud, while the sunlight was naturally glowing from the moisture in the air - Acadia was at its best: beautiful, charming and full of adventure. https://500px.com/photo/96037229/redemption-by-yegor-malinovskii
