Laurel Hill Daffodils & Ferry Beach Boardwalk

Laurel Hill Cemetery, Saco, ME

Do you know the way?  Ferry Beach Boardwalk
I finally took the time to drive down to Saco, Maine and visit Laurel Hill Cemetery to see the scads of daffodils blooming there.  I was blown away by how beautiful they were and the river and trees beyond made a really nice backdrop to take landscapes instead of just a bunch of flower shots.  (Although there's nothing wrong with that either!) You can see these photos in my Laurel Hill gallery.

We took a walk on Ferry Beach in Scarborough, Maine on Sunday night with a photography friend, Fred Weymouth, and this shot of the boardwalk on Ferry Beach was my favorite shot of the afternoon. You can see this shot and more in my Ferry Beach gallery.

Another trip to Scarborough Marsh

I'm loving how I can make reflections show up more prominently, using my polarizer.

My mother's dog had just chased several ducks and plunged into deep water a ways out into this peaceful vista.  But you'd never know it to look at this picture, would you?!

I don't often convert to monochrome, but I thought this shot merited doing so.  Your thoughts?
After three months of being a snowbird in New Mexico, my mother and her Standard Poodle, Max, are back in Maine!  You can see their blog, On Two Lanes: A Trip around the U.S., here.  We took a very nice walk in Scarborough Marsh yesterday when there were some extremely complex cloudscapes going on. 

You can see all of these photos and my other shoots here in my Scarborough Marsh Gallery.

Pemaquid Point Light, Bristol, Maine

And at last, twilight, looking towards the other direction.  The sun had set about 15 minutes ago at this point. . .
Jon and I met up with Bruce Bartrug and his wife, Michele, for dinner in Mid-Coast Maine last Saturday night.  We had a lot of fun and then headed up Route 130 to Pemaquid Point Light in Bristol, Maine.  I just love the rock formations here.  Of course a couple of days later, a friend posted another view of the lighthouse that I hadn't dared to do because Pemaquid Point is famous for rogue waves that have swept people right off the rocks, but his shot was gorgeous.  Maybe someday I will be adventurous enough, but for now, I am quite happy with what I got.  

You can see all of these and many other lighthouses, land and seascapes on my website.

Thanks for looking,



welcome to my world!
