Another awesome workshop with Tony Sweet and Susan Milestone. Their support and direction led us to many great venues at this spectacular national park. People have been drawn to the rugged coast of Maine throughout history. Awed by its beauty and diversity, early 20th-century visionaries donated the land that became Acadia National Park. The park is home to many plants and animals, and the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic coast. Today, visitors come to Acadia to hike granite peaks, bike historic carriage roads, or relax and enjoy the scenery.
This was my first photography workshop. The luck of having renowned nature and fine arts photographer Tony Sweet as our instructor was an added bonus.
Fair Hill is a 5,633 acre Natural Resources Management Area, where multiple management practices are employed for the maximum use and protection of Maryland’s natural resources. Bordered by Pennsylvania to the north and less than one half mile west of Delaware, Fair Hill is known for its pristine fields, woodlands and natural beauty.
At one time one of the largest private land holdings in the East, Fair Hill was formerly owned by William duPont, Jr., an avid equestrian who acquired the farmland as a means to enjoying riding as well as fox chasing. Fair Hill was purchased by the state in 1975 from Mr. duPont’s estate.
