My childhood friend, Melissa, aka Mac, came to the Island this weekend. She too, has a lovely Canon Rebel and we spent all of Saturday running around taking pictures – here are mine
The village of Stonington, Maine is just – well – breathtaking
Playing with the macro attachments!
Perspective! AKA Belly time!
I dragged Mac over to Barred Island and we spent some fun time tripping over roots and checking out shadows and light
Macro! I never realized how pretty moss was.
I started playing with my F settings and exposure – a few of my photos were “washed” out – however, I was able to recover much of it with my photo editor.
This is how the sun hits pink granite on the – macro of x7
I saw this mushroom – and instantly I thought of the Smurfs – then I get up and Mac said the same thing. It’s amazing how sometimes we think alike!
To end the day (Before food that is!) we hit up Sand Beach – tide was still high – but it was still a breathtaking sight to see.
A picture is worth 1000 words
I purchased a set of Macro lens – so now I am looking at the world in a whole new way – mostly down on my belly or kneeling in the muck taking pics
I found this little guy crawling around on my porch last week. Oh so very slowly.
I have 4 different lenses – x10, x4, x2 and x1 – Autofocus is close to useless while using 10 – I can also stack them for more magnifications
I’m a “fan” of the whole focus/blur – so I use the P setting often – one thing off to the side, with the blur washing out to one side.
A few shots of a nice evening sunset on Deer Isle.
On some nights, you just know when the light is going to make the sky a fiery orange…..
Sometimes you take a few pictures and the light shifts again, different refractions on the sky, the water, on the atoms in the air….. and you come away with a whole different look….
Caterpillar Hill is a good climb and then you’re almost at Deer Isle, right after CH, you can stop at ECS – Eggemogin Country Store – where you can grab a slice of pizza, some great chicken nuggets, fresh subs or lobstah….
LONG distance view of the bridge
The sunflowers are in Lille Maine and the sunsets are in Stonington and Deer Isle, Maine – taken on the same day!
I have to admit. The sunsets on the coast are wicked – it has to be the whole ocean thing.
