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.
I have to admit, the lovely sunsets here are just breathtaking! All the time!
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.
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.
