12.19.2017–A Week In Pictures from Stonington to Bar Harbor

 

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

12.03.2017–Bright Sky–Dark Night

 

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 – Smile

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

Purple Sky 11.28.2017

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.

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

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. 

Island Reflection – 7-20-2017

Living on an island is fun when you chase the sun.  I’ve a few “off island” places I want to catch the sun doing down soon.
