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.

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…


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.


Just a beautiful photograph for Veterans Day…


Organic Sand Art…

Steel Rope at the Dock…

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

I miss my sunrise shots…

I LOVE being in Portland right now but I do so miss waking up and grabbing my camera to capture the amazing sunrises in Southwest Harbor! These are from my archives…

LOOK at that face! This was taken at a small B&B/Farm in Maine

This was taken at a small B&B/Farm in Maine. The lighting in the barn was just perfect to capture this little one! Only a face a mother could love?


Caribbean or Maine?

This is actually Maine. It’s a wonderful spot at the tip of Clark Island, down between Spruce Head and Port Clyde with a shallow area with sand and clear turquoise water!


Random Photo Tuesday…love the names on lobster boats!


Tonight’s “Super Moon” over Mount Desert Island, Maine

It WAS this orange! Spectacular!


Vivid Pink Sunset Reflections on the Lobster Boats in Southwest Harbor, Maine…


Ahhh, soon…

I say this after an unusual 3 feet of snow on the Maine coast! This photo was taken on Third West Branch Pond north of Greenville.
