all images, art, travel, photography and Maine

nature

Just my fascination of shooting nature…

I love the detail in the bee’s “fur”!


Paddling on Third West Branch Pond near Moosehead Lake


Was this little guy posing for the camera?


Got Bokeh?!

This is the Rosa Rugosa bush (flowers not present in this photo) and the red bud you see are rose hipsBokeh is a photographic term for the desired quality of the blurred section of a photograph (the highlighted out of focus circles)


Black and White Photography…

this shot takes me back to my college days when I used to develop and print my own photography!


Wile E. Coyote posed for my camera today…through the glass, thankfully…


Just simple Mother Nature on the job in Maine…


A beautiful little dragonfly…

Interesting to read into the symbolism of the dragonfly.

High Above Moosehead Lake in a Float Plane…

Moosehead Lake is spectacular from the road or from the lake. But get yourself into a sea plane for the most amazing view ever!


A Vivid Fuchsia Peony


One of my favorite Maine sunrise photos…

I posted this on my Posterous blog a few days ago but try not to duplicate photo posts but I’ll make an exception on occasion. I like this shot because the water was so still and the sky so clear with just a few wispy clouds against the vivid orange. This was not color altered at all!


A funky, gnarly tree becomes art in the eye of the beholder…

this is from atop Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park, Maine…


The Stunning Cereus Plant in Bloom

My friend Kate gave me a cutting of this plant from hers which was hitting the ceiling in her dining room. This is the first bloom – it’s about 7 inches in diameter and smells incredible!


#Maine Foliage in Black and White…

I took black and white photography in college many years ago and developed a love for the artistry of black and white photography… it’s the dramatic contrast that appeals to me.

Moss Covered Branches…

moss on the trees

I love the way the sun illuminates the fine strands of moss…got some Bokeh (photog term) going on as well…


A bird in flight…

seagull in flight

not sure if this is a hawk, crow, falcon or what…

A very simple inspirational photo this morning…doesn’t this look like it could be on a Hallmark card, one of those “blank inside”?


The simple beauty of a Birch tree…

these were taken on Mount Kineo, Maine (I’m fortunate enough to have a listing there!)


Some of my husband’s great photography!

he has an eye, too 🙂
