New Work from last week's trip to Deer Isle, Maine

The Deer Isle Bridge at twilight, as seen from the beach on Deer Isle.  I love the streaming headlights from the big truck that rumbled across as I took this 15 second exposure, and the resultant reflection in the mirror-smooth water below.  What you CAN'T see in this peaceful image is the CLOUDS of mosquitoes that were so numerous around me that it was loud in my ears.  Or the fact that there were constantly at least 20 of them clustered on the backs of my hands, ankles and neck, so I was swatting them the entire time I stood there waiting for the right light!  :-)
Stonington Harbor, Deer Isle, Maine, by twilight.  Not as many mosquitoes on this night, because there was a brisk enough breeze that they couldn't manage to come out in the force that they had the previous night!  Phew!
The view opposite the Deer Isle Bridge just at sunset.  A 12 image panorama.
Northwest Harbor, Deer Isle, Maine, just off Bridge Street after sunset.  A 10 image handheld panorama.

And last but not least, a VERY fogged in Deer Isle Bridge.  You could barely see beyond a car-length ahead on the trip across.  I'm so glad I stopped to take the picture, as it has a very eerie feel to it, doesn't it?  I love how you can just see the detail of the ocean on either side of the bridge but nothing else, as if the world has disappeared.
You can see all of these and more in my Deer Isle Gallery.  

I am doing a special giveaway next month:  I am asking for everyone to like and share my Facebook Page for a chance to win an 8x10" print of Portland Harbor Skies (below) matted to 11x14" with Bainbridge Archival matting.  At the end of September, I am going to choose a random "like & sharer" of my page and I will mail the matted print to the winner (a $60.00 value).
Imagine how nice this would look, hanging on YOUR wall!
