This year, fireworks were launched from a barge off Dysarts Marina (it looks as if the boat is on fire!) and were sponsored by Gilley’s Head of the Harbor Restaurant along with several donors to make it happen! This was the view from my house, so I set up the camera and tripod and hoped for good weather! It was my first time shooting fireworks and it wasn’t easy manually focusing on a moving subject in the dark but some of these came out pretty well.

Wishing I had more time for photography…

As I look back through my photo archives I realize how much I miss taking photos on a daily basis. It was like a daily exercise, but exercising my creativity and mind. But with so much juggling going on right now between real estate and innkeeping, something had to be put on the back burner and photography it was. So I just wanted to post a few of my favorite flower photos, just something about the natural lighting and  Mother Nature’s detail…


Peekaboo Good Morning from Maine!


Got Bokeh?

I love taking pictures of lighting. These are very interesting pendant fixtures which gave me some fun bokeh!

 

 


A nice, dry French Viognier with a view…

I had a glass of Gerard Bertrand Viognier Reserve Speciale – Pays D’Oc, France 2010 today on the deck at the Chart Room at the Black Point Inn. It’s a very reasonable $15-$18 buy. Highly recommended…the wine and the outdoor dining!


Color and Depth of Field…

 

 

This photo was taken at the Gifted Hand show a couple years back in Ellsworth, Maine. I bought some of the Sister’s Soaps but it was the amazing color that caught my eye!

 


Dock Decor…


Just my fascination of shooting nature…

I love the detail in the bee’s “fur”!


Playing with natural light

Orchids are among my favorite flower but most interesting to photograph. There are so many intricate parts on which to focus, always a challenge!


Sand Art at Sand Beach, Acadia National Park

 


Fun with my macro lens…

This is a Kosta Boda glass sculpture that stands about 2.5 -3 inches tall on a piece of Maine granite (they come without stands) so my husband mounted it with a clear glue. I have a few of these amazing pieces of art  – we first saw them on a trip to Sweden – check them out !

Eggemoggin Textile Studio

I did a photo shoot for a craft fair a couple years ago and this artist does some gorgeous things with yarn! Check out the website.


The view from Sugar Island on Moosehead Lake

What a view!


Color, Lighting, Composition and Depth of Field…

Sometimes it’s as much about the depth of field, lighting and color, for me, as it is the entire composition or subject. I like this shallow depth of field combined with the lighting which allowed me to achieve some pretty interesting bokeh! This was from a craft fair in Ellsworth, Maine last year and this was the Lucky Dog Gallery display.


Just a beautiful photograph for Veterans Day…


Organic Sand Art…


More Dock Images…


Steel Rope at the Dock…

I liked this for the color, contrast and hint of bokeh…


Just a touch of Spanish moss…
