I ended my workday at home, and just as I was coming into Lille, the sky turned some gorgeous hues.

When you do homecare, your car is your office. I choose to see this as a positive. When I was in Hancock County I would often find different places to park to call my pts for the next day.
I went into a pts home and the sky was the prefect blue – so I took out my Rebel and took a snap.
Then, coming out, an hour later – the colors began to surface.
I drove 2 miles down the road to the boat landing, snapped a few photos and then called all my pts.
We have had so little rain this year, that the ground is bone dry. We were graced with some rain and a nice sunset a few evenings ago.
Then the lightning danced in a cloud and I got to have some fun playing with shutter speeds and then editing the photos. Shooting in raw means you have to process that photo. The color of the clouds were electric purple and wicked pinks. I think I did a good job of bringing it out. The first photo is of the cloud NOT lit by the lightning.
I hoofed it down to Bangor last week for some training for my new job – and it was Deer Heaven.
I got home on Tuesday evening, tired, but not sleep. Jules went to bed and I decided I was going to stay out and have a fire. Then the sun began to set.
I took a quick job to the main road and saw how clear it was going to be. I snagged a few photos and took out my Sky map and picked out where the NEOWISE comet would be.
I managed to get a few decent photos of it. I also managed to get a few Milkyway photos, which was super bright!
A gorgeous field of Lupines! Taken along route 161.
The light started to change and I ventured out into the back yard to take a few photos – all of these were taken w/in 20 or so minutes and all in my back yard.
A few shots of the Iris’ and the blooms on Jules apple tree.
The potato fields right out back from my house.
There is our super humble abode – and a wickedly awesome sunset.
I had to lighten these up a little to get the details out
Moving into the side yard – when the light started to change again.
My beloved railroad tracks. And, hello there, Canada.
And lastly, my fence. I wasn’t ever planning on putting up a fence but – you know – unruly neighbors – but no that it’s there, I love it! It gives me a fun spot to take photos off and giving me some contrast and texture in my photos.
Jules said “no heights” which is limiting if you are in the White Mountains, but I made due!
If you are ever in NH, this is a great place to go – gives you a wicked sense of what life as a super duper rich person is like.
Then we hung out in Littleton, did the river walk and waited for the sun to set – worth it!
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
I fiddled with some settings. And a few things in lightroom – which is STILL a learning curve!
What a fabulous hike. Hard as frak! But a great hike!
A few smaller “water” areas here, some great wild flowers, some of the steepest inclines I’ve done in a long while as well!
Just when you think “Okay I’ve had enough!” you come to a flatter area and you see this wicked lil view, but oh, it gets better!
After clambering down to take these, I knew I had to go around “the lake”. I had my snickers bar and started walking. Yup, it only got better.
There is a wicked dock (and a place you can stay apparently up above I caught a glimpse of it, but didn’t explore that area). A mom and a daughter were sitting there, having sandwiches and speaking, what I think, was Korean. Made me smile, reminded me what it is like for people who don’t speak french when I do it with folks I know.
Driving up Mt Washington is super fun, and a little scary for someone who isn’t into heights and have bouts of vertigo.
Be ready for wind! And some of the most gorgeous views ever.
The problem with such views is no perspective at times, so things look flat and while gorgeous, lacks texture. So, that’s why the keys! and any other objects I can use to give things perspective as well as a break in the view.
It was a fun day, and again, windy!
