040518: Maine on My Mind

Generally, when many people think of Maine they often conjure up images of lobsters (and lobster boats), or perhaps moose if they go inland. I, on the other hand, remain mesmerized by its coastal rocks. The ability of nature and natural forces to create such beauty continues to amaze and astound me!

Last summer Cindy and I had to cancel our annual trip to Maine at the last minute. As disappointing as that was, it now gives us all the more reason to already be counting the days until our trip this summer.

Until then, I satisfy myself with trips through my photo libraries, reviewing past shooting experiences “Down East.” So, for today’s post, I managed to pull together a group of images that had been previously passed over. I think they work pretty well. I hope you do too.

030118: Two From Maine

The northernmost coast of Maine (oddly enough known as “Down East” Maine) is a rocky coast with an occasional sandy beach cropping up. Jasper Beach, home of a billion billion stones,┬áis one of them. And it is great fun to visit.

One of my visits yielded two distinctly different series of images that I have for you today. The first seven images focus on the beach sands and the other seven on the rock walls that surround. As you will plainly see, each is a vastly different series – all within a “stone’s throw!”

Found on the beach, this last little oddity is a piece of kelp that wrapped itself around a rock and dried into a mold of the rock. An odd but certainly interesting new object.

Thanks for the visit.
