Old Orchard Beach–1-31-2020

First post of the year!  I had to jaunt over to Falmouth, and was thinking “where can I go for some sunset photos?”  OOB – why not!

OOB is one of those Iconic Maine Scenes.  No one takes the same shot twice, yet – it’s all the same place.

The beach was deserted and – COLD!

YES!  Arrow Made an appearance Smile

The light changes so quickly at times when shooting sunset photos – that golden moment.

Did I mention it was cold?

Even if it was cold – it was clear and gorgeous and the light faded quickly, shifting from pinks and oranges to deeper blues and purples.

I stood in this exact spot for almost 5 mins.  Taking photos on the same settings – and waiting – and waiting.  Then in editing, I tried to match up the same lines and close to the same edit settings.

Portland, ME–12-28-2019

A mistaken sent text to Mel, landed me an invite to her new home – whooot!

We headed out for a bit of exploring and I snap some photos, of course!

From there we went to PHL – I wasn’t feeling any of the areas, 1 – to many PPL!  2 – to  many ppl!!

The sky changes so quickly sometimes, you think that you are in a different place

Of course I had to take out the Green Arrow, and My lens ball.  I alternated between the ball and the lighthouse – so I got the colors that shifted in that short, 30 mins. 

Castle In the Clouds and Littleton–10-11-2019

Jules said “no heights” which is limiting if you are in the White Mountains, but I made due!

If you are ever in NH, this is a great place to go – gives you a wicked sense of what life as a super duper rich person is like.

IMG_8266IMG_8255IMG_8257IMG_8259IMG_8261IMG_8262IMG_8264

Then we hung out in Littleton, did the river walk and waited for the sun to set – worth it!

Drive Home–09-12-2019

The monthly drive north – It cannot be prettier this time of year!

IMG_7721IMG_7722IMG_7725IMG_7726

Some interesting clouds on the drive up this time around!

IMG_7728IMG_7730IMG_7732

The harvest moon!  Full and bright and bringing in the fall weather.

This is Victoria’s fave tree and I’m slowly collecting photos of it and someday I’ll make her a kick ass gift!

Sunset–08-18-2019

On the way home from Boston, via Portland – I saw the clouds and the sky changing so I pulled over and voila!

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.

Then home to a gorgeous sunset.IMG_7217IMG_7219IMG_7218

‘nuff said.

Back Yard Beauty–8-2-2019

This is sort of an on going series for me. Since I am only home for short periods of time, my back yard and home take on an ethereal feel for me.

IMG_7083IMG_7084IMG_7086

Archer had fun in the lovely back field that was planted this year behind our house. 

IMG_7087IMG_7088IMG_7089IMG_7090

There is something about the “wide openness” of Maine, more so in The Valley and Aroostook County. 

IMG_7091IMG_7093IMG_7104

Archer enjoying the huge back yard, and his big ball he loves to lick for hours.

IMG_7107IMG_7115IMG_7109IMG_7110IMG_7108

There really is no place like home.
