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 Unsorted

A few years ago, I lost all my photos.  My backup drive went corrupt.  I was able to save most, but I did end up with having lost 2011 and some of 2012.  Thankfully, I did have some backed up here, on wordpress as well as a few on disc, remember that?

Both of these above were taken on Parent’s Mountain in front of my house.

This shot – took me a while to set up, mostly because the sun never quite hit at the right place.  I had to do a bit of – scouting to get JUST the shot!

Best of October

One of my FAVE months – because, face it, FALL!

2013

2013 brought me to my clinical time in Millinocket Maine – and along with that, mine and Julia’s first real “weekend away” just a weekend in Rockland. 

2013-hdr-20131005_101524

This Mount Kat picture now hangs as a canvas on our wall – its still one of my faves!

Shells and shells! 

2013-hdr-IMG_9392

Me and my railroad tracks. 

2013-hdr-IMG_9405

This was an odd day – the light was musty – then clear, then muddy again.  I played with my camera settings and got this wickedly interesting shot. 

2015

The first few pictures are of TEXAS!  The fun part of being in Clayton, NM was I was an hour away from OK, TX and CO.

The Balloon Fest in Albuquerque, NM was just phenomenal!  Pictures just can’t hold up to the true beauty of it!

Sunrise in Clayton, NM – I had to dash over to my apartment and get my camera – was a cannot miss moment!

2015-HDR-IMG_2362

I decided, one Saturday, to go take a ride to find Route 66, I went to Tucomcari, NM – drove around, found a museum and enjoy cruising.

Garden of the Gods!  In Colorado Springs, my birthday weekend, I knew I’d be depressed being away from home – so I booked a night away, and at 6am I was at the park.  I walked, hiked, took 100s of pictures and just over all enjoyed myself.  What a gorgeous area, if you are ever in CO – the place is FREE!  Take the Jeep tour as well!

2017

My nephew, Rhys and I went out one day to Millinocket and took a boat load of pictures…  We worked on perspective, and then he worked on his appetite.  Smile

Sunset – Deer Isle, Maine.

Always trying to find a new way to view the world.

Over looking The Island–10.4.2017

Big views and close up views from a great lil spot on Little Deer Isle Smile

Macro–9.20.2017

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 Smile

hdr-IMG_7915

I found this little guy crawling around on my porch last week.  Oh so very slowly.

hdr-IMG_7939

hdr-IMG_7938

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

hdr-IMG_7954

hdr-IMG_7955

hdr-IMG_7981

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.
