well its been about 7 months or so since we got back, ive been so busy growing my company i havent had time to do much of anything with my camera but here are the photos form our trip rd the east coast, had a great time wish wed had more time though. lots and lots of driving 1800 miles in 9 days but well worth it.

think acadia, north conway and cape cod were our favourite bits

I have camera insurance all over the world with everything listed inc serial numbers copied from my canon cps membership

I also have a year long travel insurance which covers £10,000 personal property as well

I had every cover extra etc on our hire car as well

We've had a 2013 ford Taurus

Just in Plymouth as boston was booked up no hotel rooms under $600 dollars

We did the cape today. Met Robert and penny :) then made it to race point for sunset

Fly to toronto tomorrow :)

We've done 2600 miles in 9 days

Got a few dollars riding around in the trunk. Consider the coverage of your auto insurance.

E.T.A. - What are you driving, by the way?

Some interesting or quirky be good :)


If you're going to be in Burlington you have to let me know. As for a place to stay there are tons of B&B's around that you can find or many hotels and motels. When will you be in this area?

Nope, none of the National Parks are open. But that part of Maine is terrific even WITHOUT Acadia, no worries.

Had to ditch my tripod and filters to get under 23kg :(

But at the airport now, is Acadia national park open yet it's day 6 on our trip?

the bigmas gone, traded it for the 120-300 sigma 2.8 but would have been a good cover all lens

teh 120-300 is a heavy big ass lens though and id need to take the 2x

im thinking it'll mainly be people and landscapes wont be doing any zoos this time rd so shouldnt need the reach

Burlington by definition is quirky. Shouldn't be tough!
10/08/2013 03:42:05 PM · #18
Take the 85mm, not the 50mm. The 1.8's extra special on the longer lens. The Bigma's too much to haul this trip, huh?

That's an awful lot of ground to cover in 9 days. You can certainly do it, but it doesn't leave you a whole lot of time to explore any single place. But I would echo the other comments of getting off the highways, especially in Maine. The coastal route from Portland to Acadia is spectacular. If you want more details about places to see in and around Ithaca, let me know. Your route goes about 3 miles by my place.

Getting off the freeways makes for easier photo opportunities. In Vermont, once you are at Stowe (point G) you can go up to Morristown (closer than it looks) then east on 12, which loops back down to Montpelier -- giving you a look at a different valley on your way back. From Montpelier (smallest state capital in the US, 8,000 people, no McDonalds, stop at Coffee Corner Main and State street for good food and atmosphere), going south on 12 through Northfield and Randolph gets you some great fall color, if the week you travel cooperates. Then pick a place to cut back over to I89 or go all the way on 12 to Woodstock, depending on time constraints.

Providence is the capitol of RI. Fall River is in Mass, but close to Providence.

You Need to at Cape Neddick, ME to your itinerary, you are going to go right by it anyways on your way up to Portland.... There you will see Nubble light/Cape Neddick Light. Very photogenic, totally worth the stop.
