An avid outdoorsman, Ben is a registered Maine Guide, former US National Whitewater Canoe Champion and has completed the 100-mile Canadian Ski Marathon. For 25 years he worked in product management and development at L.L. Bean, where he was Director of Sporting goods and Product manager for Outdoor Gear. In recent years, using his in-depth knowledge of the natural world, Ben has turned his attention to the discovery of dramatic and inspiring nature photography images. From his 110 year-old camp at the Narrows on Richardson Lake in Maine’s Rangeley Region (the location of this image), he is exploring the photographic possibilities of scenic landscape, wildlife and plant subjects.
Nature Photography Image of the Month
The Great gulf Wilderness area is on the west side of MT. Washington in the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire. Early morning sun was focused on the foreground ridgeline by low clouds, illuminating only the top edge of the ridge. Beyond these nearby hills, lies the Great Gulf Wilderness, shrouded in mist and fog, viewed from parking area of the Glen House on Rt 16 between Jackson and Gorham, New Hampshire.
