Time spent in Deer Isle, Maine

Deer Isle, Maine is definitely one of my muses as a photography subject.  It's hard to go anywhere on the island without seeing something beautiful, honestly.  If you just show up for the right light, you're almost guaranteed to find something beautiful to shoot!  Over the past few months, these are some of the photographs I've taken while visiting my mother there. 

Please feel free to share my blog posts with your friends and contacts at will.  Also, take a moment to look at my website when you get a chance (below).  Cheers!

Fuller Farm Sunset and Stars, Scarborough, Maine

I went to Pine Point yesterday in Scarborough, ME, looking for some nifty sunset shots of the dories and rowboats at high tide.  But, hey--no boats here!  The water was REALLY choppy and the boats were really close to the shore and looked pretty lame.  So I changed my plan and thought I would try to get some salt marsh at sunset shots. . .  Hmm. .. .  No salt marsh in evidence here either.  What gives, Cindy?  Well, the upshot is that I took a wrong left turn at Albuquerque, so to speak, and ended up at Fuller Farm in Scarborough and I'm so glad I did!  The haystacks looked so beautiful and harvesty, and there were magnificent pink clouds overhead.  And then I stayed long enough to capture some stars, as you'll see in my third shot.  Sometimes, when life hands you lemons. . .

Thinking about an autumnal photo shoot. . .

So, I've been working out where to go in Western Maine THIS October, after having so much success last year heading up toward Bethel, ME.  At first, I thought, "I need to go to Baxter State Park!"  But after a lot of research, I realized that. . .  I need to do MORE research!  So I'll plan a trip for next summer to Baxter with my family instead. 

But I think I may head to Weld, ME for a couple of days, because there are so many amazingly beautiful sights just off the road: wooded streams and rivers, Webb Lake, Mt. Blue State Park, Tumbledown Mountain and the "bowl" at the top--a beautiful pond. 

I hope you'll take a moment to share my blog post with your friends and family.  And once again, please click the "follow" button on the right side of the page with all the icons of my other followers. 

Thanks for looking!

Sunset at Willard Beach

Over the past couple of weeks, I drove over to South Portland's Willard Beach's sweet little shacks several times, hoping to get great sunset light.  The first two times, despite the clouds being gorgeous in Portland, as I drove over, it completely clouded up and rained!  But the third time, THIS night, I was rewarded with some really magical light.  I'm so glad, because I love these little fishing shacks.

Please share this post with your contacts and click the share on Facebook button, if you would, as getting the word out there about my work with your help is the only way I advertise.  If you like these, you can view or purchase them on my  landscape and nature portfolio

Reviving Ye Olde Blog!

Hi everyone!  It has been SUCH a long time since I last posted:  2014!  But I thought I should dust off the old blog and start posting here again.  I wanted to show some of my newest work to you.  I went to Bug Light Park in South Portland the other night, hoping to capture the lighthouse at sunset, but the best light was over the Portland skyline itself.
There were at least 20 people around me, enjoying the weather and light, and they all whipped out their smart phones and cameras to capture what we were seeing.
The light over the lighthouse, which frequently can be beautiful at sunset, looking back toward Portland, was lackluster at best, although there were still people doggedly trying to get good pictures of it. 
This was taken before the sunset (obviously!) and I shot it at f/32 with my 16-85mm lens, which introduced some softness, which I didn't like.  But I did like all the points of the star it created of the sun!  A photographic tradeoff I guess. 

You can always see my entire body of work at and flickr:
