Lille Mountain–09-13-2019

Does this mountain have a name?  I don’t know, I have looked but never really found it. 

This is a favorite walk of mine and I am going to do some night photography up there one of these days!

The walk up to the overlook begins at the old Parent Pond, where as a kid we’d feed the ducks and there was a small bridge.  The bridge is long gone now, but the pond is still there.

‘Nuff said.

From this vantage point you can see what was once called Lille – a small off shoot village of Grand Isle.  It used to boast a store, garages, and a nice sized camp ground with a pool.  I remember the pool!  I remember folks camping out under the huge pines as well.

Then the walk down was pretty as well – the last photo is one of the many ponds on the way up. 

Please note: this is private property and I have permission to go there.

Sunset–08-18-2019

On the way home from Boston, via Portland – I saw the clouds and the sky changing so I pulled over and voila!

Back Yard Beauty–8-2-2019

This is sort of an on going series for me. Since I am only home for short periods of time, my back yard and home take on an ethereal feel for me.

Archer had fun in the lovely back field that was planted this year behind our house.

There is something about the “wide openness” of Maine, more so in The Valley and Aroostook County.

There really is no place like home.

06-04-2019 – Arethusa Falls

I saw this parking lot a few weeks ago, and I knew after the pictures I saw online I wanted to go there.  I also need to go back for Bemis and Frankenstein Cliffs!

This is a moderate hike, not a lot of mud, you can hear the running water most of the time.  And then you see it.

After clambering around and getting down to the creek, you can scamper right up next to the falls if you are so brave!  I didn’t feel like getting wet Smile

I fiddled with some settings.  And a few things in lightroom – which is STILL a learning curve!
