Weekend–AM to PM 9.23.2017

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!

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.

Barred Island

I ended up with a shorter day today – so I decided to

skip the gym (you know many of my blogs start off that way!) – and hit up Barred Island – It’s a mile in and a mile out – you  MUST go during low tide and you’ll have 2hrs before and 2hrs after (the hike in is about 45 mins)

The trail is worn, the earth bare to the snarled roots of the surrounding trees.

Then as you come closer to the shore, feet and time have cut a swath of earth away and revealed the granite beneath – making for a solid walk way to the beach

Then – the beach – at low tide you’ve got about 2hrs before and 2hrs after the “low point” of the tide.  You can walk over to the Island and explore it – along with the shore – it’s a great view – I’d love to hit it up at sunset – but not having to walk back thru that trail at deep dusk

It’s a real fun walk, you’ve got sand, rocky area, lovely huge granite rocks – and nothing like that great sea air.
