January! The start of a new year – I wrapped up January in Deer Isle. We had some killer cold days too!  And cute turkeys!

Doors!  Bridges!  Deer Isle, where I’ve spent more of my PTA career than anywhere else!

This youngling was crossing in front of my care one evening, I pulled over to snap a shot, whistled and she turned.

Oh my lovely sunflares, how I love thee

 

2017

Having spent the full year in the Mid-Coast area, I truly began to explore.  Having been there for 9 weeks in full winter before was difficult to really see everything – but with a year to venture, I found I still didn’t see Everything!

With a new camera and lens, came learning it all over again.  There are several creative settings on the t5i and I’m only just getting a good grasp on them.

Oh Echo, this is the best pic of her I have gotten so far.  She’s such a serious dog.  And never really sits still.  I love her “eyebrows”.

The below is my Christmas Eve Sunset up at Long Lake on my way to my brother’s place.

The below is in Bar Harbor – I was heading there every few days for work, I had pts there – this took me about 3 weeks to get JUST the right timing that the sun would be the “top” of the crate tree.

Until now, I’d had a film camera – then my lovely wife bought me my first DSLR – a 10meg pix Canon Rebel SL – bare basic, stripped down camera.

I still had my bare basic SL at this time, which is STILL in my closet, btw.  However, I was steadfast that when I got home I was getting an “all in one” lens because hoofing around a wide angle and a telephoto was getting heavy.

I love doors, well, I love a lot of things.  This is in Taos, New Mexico in the pueblos.  What a gorgeous area.

Mountains in Colorado.  Just gorgeous.

Ah, I spent the year here, in Deer Isle.  A lovely angry sky night!

I was out chasing the light one evening and ended up not where I thought I was going – I took a left and not a right – I ended up here, close to a private peer, I think.  And I got some great purple light that night!

It’s a blast to look through photos you’ve taken.  Brings back a lot of memories.

In 2015 I did something I never thought I’d do.  I started my adventure as a traveling PTA.  I interviewed for a job in early August and by late August I was driving across the country to New Mexico.  To a lil burg called Clayton.

I spent ALL of 2017 in Stonington Maine, working for VNA/Hancock County Home Care – I loved it.

Every single one of those sunsets is a different night.  Yup.  I tell you, down east was a fun place to live for a year.

The great thing about being a Traveling PTA – well, the travel! 

I adored New Mexico – vastly different than the eastern side of the US – and I’d go again (I totally want to retire in Alamogordo!)

I love working on perspective – getting down on my belly, back, looking up or down at something.  We typically look at the world from one POV – standing upright and head on.

One of my VERY few cell phone pictures – and HDR’ed in photoimpact – I couldn’t miss out on this really cool looking metal and rope bell hanging there.

This was sort of my “rust” series.  It’s amazing what mother nature does to the world at times.

Sand Beach, Stonington, ME – This has been my BEST selling photo.  I had so many requests via Facebook that I sent along canvas prints – there are great colors in this shot!

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…..

12.19.2017–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
