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 to venture too far on foot. It’s been awhile since I used this camera and it took me some time to adjust to different locations of the dials and buttons! I chose the shot I took of the golden rod along the path to the ocean for my photo of the day. The contrast between the deep yellow flowers and the texture of the tree trunk caught my eye. I believe this is Solidago rugosa – Rough-stemmed Goldenrod.
Since it was too wet to climb down over the rocks, with my telephoto lens I was able to capture some gulls resting high and dry above the churning water.
And, a lone lobster boat was out making the rounds…..
