Ecotat Gardens and Arboretum, Hermon, Maine

Profile for aaronpriestOn my way home from a photo shoot in Hermon, Maine, I decided to do a little geocaching. If you’ve never tried the sport before, it’s a lot of fun. You take a GPS and go treasure hunting, looking for a hidden cache that someone else has placed and marked the coordinates to. Or as one person put it, “We use a multi-million dollar space based satellite system to hunt down tupperware hidden in the woods!” It’s a lot of fun and takes me to great photo locations that I never would have known about otherwise.

Such was one of those occasions when I discovered Ecotat Gardens and Arboretum. The sun had already set, so I had some beautiful, diffuse light to work with. I left the tripod and flash in the car and just wandered around. They had some wonderful gardens and trails to explore. Here are my favorite images.

I took these photos earlier in Hermon before the sun had set, but they were not part of Ecotat’s gardens.
