Artist’s Bluff was a moderate hike! But a good one none the less!

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, another month full of storms and cold, sometimes wind that threatens to toss your car into the snow bank.
Icy March! March, downstate, is all about cold, ice, melt, and then more snow!
April showers bring May flowers – and a cornucopia of shells with vibrant colors and a super cloudy day on Sand Beach in Stonington, ME
More shells! Flowers and ferns.
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.
Shopping at the thrift places in Searsport and 4th of July on the Island were a blast!
Now, the sunsets in Maine are gorgeous, but for some reason, on this lovely island of Deer Isle – they are spectacular!
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.
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.
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.
And the last month of the year brings the snow BACK to us. And – that’s a wrap!
Ah, Sept, almost fall! My fave time of the year.
These are my FIRST pictures with my Canon Rebel SX/DSLR – Previously, anything before Sept 2010 was scanned from my film photos (still a Rebel, I’m a Canon girl)
I spent 7 weeks in Milliknocket, ME doing my clinicals. The last two shots of 2013 are my first “long exposure” shots.
Fall! Up on the mountain in Lille
I was at my 1st New Mexico assignment for all of Sept of 2015 – what a great area too!
The below picture was taken atop an inactive volcano – in that view, you can see Texas in the far distance.
Sunset, flowers, and views from atop Haystack Mountain
The following few pictures of of a “photo drive” I took with my nephew that summer. We had a BLAST!
Views from Haystack!
I spent ALL of 2017 in MAINE! Down state and home.
One of my fave sunsets! I love those colors.
I bought some relatively cheap magnification/marco lens filters. Most of these are at 2x
I got off early from work today (whoohoo) so instead of going to the gym (inside) I went hiking (outside) because it’s the last week of Sept and it was almost 80!
The colors are starting to come in here, down state – I love orange leaves…..
Everyone is going to think I’ve a thing for mushrooms, I don’t – however! they are great to start learning the macro settings on my camera on
Moss – really, gorgeous!
This guy was nice enough to stay still for a few pics
Fog rolling in!
My childhood friend, Melissa, aka Mac, came to the Island this weekend. She too, has a lovely Canon Rebel and we spent all of Saturday running around taking pictures – here are mine
The village of Stonington, Maine is just – well – breathtaking
Playing with the macro attachments!
Perspective! AKA Belly time!
I dragged Mac over to Barred Island and we spent some fun time tripping over roots and checking out shadows and light
Macro! I never realized how pretty moss was.
I started playing with my F settings and exposure – a few of my photos were “washed” out – however, I was able to recover much of it with my photo editor.
This is how the sun hits pink granite on the – macro of x7
I saw this mushroom – and instantly I thought of the Smurfs – then I get up and Mac said the same thing. It’s amazing how sometimes we think alike!
To end the day (Before food that is!) we hit up Sand Beach – tide was still high – but it was still a breathtaking sight to see.
