30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 29

The carriage road around Witch Hole Pond is a nice 3+ mile loop that I enjoy walking in the early evening.  I headed out with both my Nikon camera and my Canon since I was unsure what to expect.  I wanted all my options. …

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 28

Another dreary day on Mount Desert Island but I made the most of it before work.  I decided to dust off my Canon camera with the 55-250 lens so I could get some different shots today along the coast.  I did not have time…

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 27

My day has been full with work obligations so I have decided to choose a photograph from another day during my 30 day experiment – so not totally out of line!   I am particularly fond of photographing plants since that was my focus for…

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 26

Last night we had some torrential rain and windy gusts.  It kept me awake until close to morning.  I knew I would have to get out early for a photo shoot today or not at all.  Luckily, the rain had subsided by morning.  I…

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 25

I’ve been reading an interesting book titled “Living on the Edge – a guide to tide pool animals, seaweeds, and seaside plants.”  The book was written by Ruth Gortner Grierson, who writes a nature column for a local newspaper, and Thomas Vining, who was…

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 24

I have had the privilege of witnessing 3 full moons rise over the Atlantic off the coast of Mount Desert Island this summer.  They have all been spectacular and humbling.  The Harvest Moon tonight topped them all.  I made it down to the spot…

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 23

I had two objectives today after work.  I wanted to find the horse statue a camper mentioned stumbling upon when taking a wrong turn on a trail, and I needed to try and get a photograph of the full moon.  Although technically the moon…

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 22

One more week to go with my photographic journey experiment!  I worked an odd shift today which meant I did not have time to get out and take pictures.  So, I will once again post an older photo – taken towards the end of…

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 21

There is a high wind advisory in effect for coastal Maine this evening.  I thought perhaps that might render some decent wave activity as the tide started rolling in on Little Hunter’s Beach.  On my way to the beach along the path to the…

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 20

I have not ventured to Hunter’s Beach Cove for several weeks.  It was time for a visit.  I love the old log bridge along the trail.  It is weathered and starting to become moss covered.  It feels ancient and timeless. I used the Aperture…
