October Photo of the Day 10.3.21

I was trying to capture the subtle pastel colors of the sky along with the shimmering sea and, by accident, also captured a lone seagull cruising along the coast. The whole scene evokes a sense of peace and calm – something we can all… Continue Reading “October Photo of the Day 10.3.21”

October Photo a Day 10.1.21

Fall colors are starting to pop out all over Mount Desert Island. Yesterday’s dramatic cloud-filled sky complimented the emerging colors. 🙂

Carriage Road Tour

On Wednesday, the weather forecast was ideal for a long bike ride. I planned a route that would take me several hours to complete and capture a circuitous journey through the heart of the park. It was an ambitious 14-plus mile tour. The 45-mile… Continue Reading “Carriage Road Tour”

Gorham Mt. View

Yesterday after work I had time to do one of my favorite short hikes – a 4 mile round-trip trek – up Gorham Mountain from my campsite. As I was descending the summit, I caught sight of this lone sailboat (minus the sails!) slowly… Continue Reading “Gorham Mt. View”
