January

January is typically cold, dreary and snowy!  Sometimes, although, you have one great afternoon after work that just rocks.  This is the Narrows Bridge in Buckport, ME

February

February, another month full of storms and cold, sometimes wind that threatens to toss your car into the snow bank.

march

Icy March!  March, downstate, is all about cold, ice, melt, and then more snow!

April

April showers bring May flowers – and a cornucopia of shells with vibrant colors and a super cloudy day on Sand Beach in Stonington, ME

May

More shells!  Flowers and ferns.  Smile

JUNE

June was a lean month, save for one lovely day where the skies opened up and the sun shown for this brilliant rainbow and of course, the lupines.

JULY

Shopping at the thrift places in Searsport and 4th of July on the Island were a blast!

AUGUST

Now, the sunsets in Maine are gorgeous, but for some reason, on this lovely island of Deer Isle – they are spectacular!

September

I bought a bunch of cheap magnification filters.  So I spent a lot of time stooping, focusing and looking at the world, again, in a different light.

OCTOBER

One of the best days of Oct was going to Mt Kat w/my nephew Rhys, the look on his face when he saw the mountain “up close” was priceless.

NOVEMBER

I didn’t get out much in November – but I did take a wrong turn one evening while chasing the sun and got this stunner of a picture.

December

And the last month of the year brings the snow BACK to us.  And – that’s a wrap!

Best of January

Someone suggested to me to make a “best of” my photos.  I have to be honest, that’s a LOT of pictures.  So I’ll be doing this every last day of the month (if I can).  I went all the way back (as far as I have saved) and rummaged around in my January folders.

Stormy, on the couch, where she shouldn’t have been!

2016

My first time in Deer Isle, while working at the nursing home – I was there a short time – 9 weeks or so, but it’s a place I’ll definitely want to go back to again and again.

Snow Storms from HELL!

My 2nd time in Deer Isle (I just realized I spent two winters there in the last 3 years).  So many pictures to pick from – but these are my faves.
