Torrential rain fell upon Mount Desert Island today.  I hunkered down inside my trailer for much of the day and thought about how I would manage to get a photo opportunity.  I cleaned, read and eventually took the shuttle into Bar Harbor to the… Continue Reading “30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 11”

I needed to plan an extended hike today.  After five days of working, and no extended hike last week, I was long overdue.  I decided to hike to the top of one of my favorite peaks in the park – Pemetic Mountain via a… Continue Reading “30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 10”

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 9

Sunday’s are my Friday’s, if you get my meaning.  I usually have a much reduced energy level after five days of work.  I also needed to make a trip to the grocery store to replenish supplies.  So, in thinking about where I would go… Continue Reading “30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 9”

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 7

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 4

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 3

Today, I chose to walk to a favorite location near my camping spot for my next photograph.  It’s a small cove off the Park Loop Road that is not visible from the road unless you pull over and look over the edge of the… Continue Reading “30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 3”

30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 2

After work today, we headed out to explore the “quiet” side of the island, and wandered down to Bartlett’s Landing.  It was late, and we got there at dusk.  Clouds were settling in over the ocean and the light was fading fast.  This is… Continue Reading “30 Days and 30 Photos – Day 2”
