It was vividly cold ocean side this January – and that made for some fun picture taking!

I used the 4x filter for my camera – the edges get slightly fuzzy that way, so I’m looking into some lens extensions.

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!”

This is over in Blue Hill – near reversing falls – it’s totally frozen over – brrrr!

Deer Isle and Stonington, Maine

I really do enjoy this island – after work on a Friday, I decided to go snapping pictures instead of going to the gym.

I do enjoy taking a look at things from different perspectives – and sometimes up close and person is best.

Check out the clouds – cotton candy in a sea of blue

I have yet to go inside the Opera House (yes, yes, I will go maybe when Jules visits)

I don’t get “sunsets” where I am living, instead I get that sweet glow of blue, oranges, and yellows – which can be better sometimes.

I can’t wait for longer days to hang out on my porch, do my nightly scheduling, and watch the boats come in.

Storm

Our Oh So Serious dog. 

Storm is 13 this year, she is as old as our relationship.

Up Close

I love the marco option on my 70-300 lens.  I love getting close but being far away.

Like Mr. Frog. Good luck getting a nice photo of Mr. Frog with a standard lens.  Either you’d fall in or Mr. Frog would take a powder.

This is Dutch, taken from across the room.  She’s a cute cat, but try and get to close and that moment of cuteness is gone.

At NMCC one day, Gail Roy comes to me and asks “Do you have your camera?”  Silly question, it is usually in my car.  Outside a small bat was nestled against the building.  The angle was odd, but this lil guy was cute!

Out walking last winter and that lovely red in a sea of white.  And no reason to walk the quarter mile to get a nice closeup.

To the naked eye, its just the air disturbance, but to a telephoto lens, it’s a plane in a full climb.

Or you go off walking and come back to find your adorable nephew naked and in mid jump (the flower is post editing Smile)

HDR-IMG_6550

One of my fave shots.  Taken on top of the mountain in front of my house – In the bigger photo, the shadows even display the webbing and patterns of the wings. 

That’s all for now!
