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

Best of January

Someone suggested to me to make a “best of” my photos.  I have to be honest, that’s a LOT of pictures.  So I’ll be doing this every last day of the month (if I can).  I went all the way back (as far as I have saved) and rummaged around in my January folders.

Stormy, on the couch, where she shouldn’t have been!

2016

My first time in Deer Isle, while working at the nursing home – I was there a short time – 9 weeks or so, but it’s a place I’ll definitely want to go back to again and again.

My 2nd time in Deer Isle (I just realized I spent two winters there in the last 3 years).  So many pictures to pick from – but these are my faves.

01.01.2018–Gobble Gobble and Ice, Ice, Baby

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 Smile

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!”

Fall On Deer Isle–9.26.2017

 

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!

Weekend–AM to PM 9.23.2017

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.

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. 

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

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

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_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.

Fire In The Sky–8.30.2017

On some nights, you just know when the light is going to make the sky a fiery orange….. 

hdr-IMG_7822

Sometimes you take a few pictures and the light shifts again, different refractions on the sky, the water, on the atoms in the air….. and you come away with a whole different look….
