You never know what you’ll find right in front of your face – I opened the door and – oh, wonder what that will look like up close
More of that sea fog, or mist, or – damn it, it’s cold!
Turkey! I never noticed the cool colors on these guys. This one below is cruising – check out the fly of snow at his feet. My friend, Ricky, told me to “bring him some!”
This is over in Blue Hill – near reversing falls – it’s totally frozen over – brrrr!
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
The night of the “big” moon. So I don’t have an ND filter (next on the list!) so that I can leave my aperture open for longer and not let in as much light and gain the shadows of the craters of the moon. But this came out well enough –
These are from one of the small “connector” causeways that are around the island. I clambered down over the guard rail and snapped a few pics…..
Off to the bridge – because that is where the moon rises this time of year.
And there it is – the moon. Super bright – and lovely – a lot of clouds so this made for snapping a clear picture harder
There are just some nights where you know the sky is going to light up.
I’ve been teasing around more with my settings – so that I have to edit less afterwards. I think its working.
I love dark and light – and photographing an object against the light – but its not always to find. I got lucky when I was running around the island this night and found a simple dock post with rope just hanging from it. Perfect.
We took off at 8am, and got home at 8pm or… later – the first time we pulled over (we drove up the 11) we found this decrepit house and ventured inside. We snapped a few pictures and Rhys picked up a pool ball. The reason for it I explained to him later.
It has always been a great fascination for my brother, Lee, this Mount Kat. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree with his son, Rhys. On our day trip (8+ hrs in the the car) we picked up an object, the #3 ball. Using that we worked on perspective. Make the back ground blurry or the foreground blurry.
The look on Rhys face when he saw it for the first time was beyond priceless. He couldn’t get out of the car fast enough. He was mesmerized, but not speechless.
The other stop we made was another abandoned house with a real outhouse – which, Rhys proclaimed “Someone pooped here!”
Railroad TRACKS! Another love of us Grivois’ to be fair – one of the reasons I bought my home was 1 – the raspberry bushes and 2 – right next to the railroad tracks! – again, we worked on perspective.
Lil man was excited (The ride on Golden Road was very, very BUMPY!!) to get closer to the Mountain – then he stood there and looked – I had to prompt him to take pictures. Was cute.
He just stood there looking – no pose, was just how he found himself. His dad has a picture from close to the spot where he is standing on canvas that we gave him for their housewarming present.
We did more work on perspective and finally headed home. We had a blast and we definitely need to hike it in a year or two.
