Rockland, Camden, Lincolville Beach and Frankfort in night fog

Harbor Park in Rockland

Camden Harbor

Lincolnville Beach

Bridge in Frankfort

'twas foggy on the ride home from Rockland (we were there seeing Lucky Peterson at the Time Out Pub for Monday Night Blues). If Jenny Why_Me hadn't been with me, I might've spent a lot more time looking for things to shoot in the fog.

I've been wanting to shoot this bridge in Frankfort for some time. I was hoping to catch some 'golden hour' light at some point, but it was really cool to capture these misty night photos.

Cadillac Mountain at Sunset

It's been a while since I've been up on the top of Cadillac Mountain. After spending the day in Ellsworth we headed further coastward and caught a wonderful sunset. It was much warmer on the inland side of the mountain. Very blustery on the ocean side!

Blades of grass at the top of Cadillac Mountain

I've been wanting to go back to Acadia and Cadillac Mountain for a while now (it's not far, but we haven't made it for a while), since getting into the digital photo thang. After my daughter's gymnastics meet this afternoon we went to the top of Cadillac for sunset. More to come. This shot submitted to Macro Day for the Blade theme.

Walking along the Stillwater River at sunset

Taken on Friday and Sunday at Sunset.

The (not so still) Stillwater River near the UMaine campus on Friday April 17th.

Very choppy and not all that interesting. Might as well look up.

Fast forward to Sunday (April 19th)...

The Stillwater River living up to its name.

No leaves growing yet.

Oddly enough, it was colder at sundown (the days being otherwise rather similar) Sunday with no wind than it was on Friday.

The following two photos are from almost the same vantage point as the first photo in this set. The stillness and reflection make for a much better photo, in my opinion.

The Loch Ness beaver?

Hard to capture a good shot of this guy. He was briefly on land, but I didn't have an angle to get a decent shot. When I moved and he heard me, he took a dive. He didn't go too far underwater, though. The light was receding, but it was fun trying to get a shot until he drifted/swam too far downriver.

2009 Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race - An Aerial View

I wish I could say that I took these photos. It would have been a blast to have this vantage point. Maybe next year I won't be working on race day and I'll volunteer my camera (so long as I get to operate it)!

Anyway, here's a bird's eye view of a brief portion of the 2009 Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race.

Thanks Gary and DEEMI!

Pleasure Craft

I could probably have had a better angle to photograph this, but I think the plane and the visible grounds are suitable enough to submit this to Photo Friday's Wealth Challenge.
