Lille Mountain–09-13-2019

Does this mountain have a name?  I don’t know, I have looked but never really found it. 

This is a favorite walk of mine and I am going to do some night photography up there one of these days!

The walk up to the overlook begins at the old Parent Pond, where as a kid we’d feed the ducks and there was a small bridge.  The bridge is long gone now, but the pond is still there.

From this vantage point you can see what was once called Lille – a small off shoot village of Grand Isle.  It used to boast a store, garages, and a nice sized camp ground with a pool.  I remember the pool!  I remember folks camping out under the huge pines as well.

Then the walk down was pretty as well – the last photo is one of the many ponds on the way up. 

Please note: this is private property and I have permission to go there.

Back Yard Beauty and Mizpah–8-6-2019

We sent up to Mizpah for a short walk with Archer.  He is not always a fan of riding in the truck.

Moose!  This is a little one.  This is a scanned photo, in fact, I had my old film Rebel with  me this day.

When I came back from New Mexico, I had gotten a new lens – since I hike, and need to haul water, etc with  me.  I wanted a more “all in one” lens.  I picked up a Tamron 18-270mm.  It’s a midgrade lens, and sometimes you get some noise.  The editing program I use though, I can easily get rid of the noise.  This is one of my first shots with it.  I really love the lens.

A lot about photography is about timing, and sometimes luck!  I was lucky to spend time in the MidCoast area, and the rainbow shots were 1000% luck of timing. 

Night Stars and Lilies–8-18-2017

I tried my hand at a few night shots – I need to get a trigger bulb!  No way outta that!  Next investment Smile
