01.01.2018–Gobble Gobble and Ice, Ice, Baby

You never know what you’ll find right in front of your face – I opened the door and – oh, wonder what that will look like up close Smile

More of that sea fog, or mist, or – damn it, it’s cold!

Turkey!  I never noticed the cool colors on these guys.  This one below is cruising – check out the fly of snow at his feet.  My friend, Ricky, told me to “bring him some!”

This is over in Blue Hill – near reversing falls – it’s totally frozen over – brrrr!

12.28.2017–Cold Day in the Mid-Coast

For weeks!  I’d been passing this “crate Christmas tree”.  First it was snowing, then it was cloudy, another day the sun was to low – but then, finally!  Voila!  Sun topper!

Then the next morning – this phenomenoun known as “sea fog” is what a patient called it – began – why, cuz it was so DARN COLD!!!  25 below.  I mean, when the ocean freezes, that’s saying something, right?

Then a cold sunset!  I hit up one place – not sure what cove its called (Weed or Webb, not sure!)

hdr-IMG_9270

I bent down to pick up that lil sliver of GREEN sea glass (see it!) and thought – oh – frozen seaweed… what will look like up close…..

12.24.2017–Christmas Time

Echo didn’t not seem  happy that I was leaving that afternoon.  She was giving me those puppy dog eyes.

There was a weird, almost ethereal light on x-mas even – hard to capture at times.

Berries and snow!

On the drive up to the lake, that lovely light kept teasing me to take pictures.

12.19.2017–A Week In Pictures from Stonington to Bar Harbor

 

And Sand Beach…  a fave place for sunsets and this day it had snowed at high tide so the rocks has ‘white caps’

A play on perspective – the sun a fade and some red berries the focus….  I should have used the flash, but I still liked the result….

These guys are in Bar Harbor, they were toddling around on the ice so I thought I’d go over and snap a few pics of them – and the bridge

12.03.2017–Bright Sky–Dark Night

 

The night of the “big” moon.  So I don’t have an ND filter (next on the list!) so that I can leave my aperture open for longer and not let in as much light and gain the shadows of the craters of the moon.  But this came out well enough – Smile

These are from one of the small “connector” causeways that are around the island.  I clambered down over the guard rail and snapped a few pics…..

Off to the bridge – because that is where the moon rises this time of year.

And there it is – the moon.  Super bright – and lovely – a lot of clouds so this made for snapping a clear picture harder

Randomness–12.2.2017

 

I don’t go home every weekend, since when Julia works, I hardly see her.  So this weekend I decided to go “riding” around.  I hit up Ellsworth and a few other places, and of course, stopped to take pictures.

There are a few settings (the CA) one that I’m finally getting into – and many of the pictures come out like the above, almost oil painting like – I like it

As you can see, I was out “all” day.  I must say, I’ll miss this area.
