Had a great vacation, and got out a few times with the camera! I drove up to Pemaquid Point Lighthouse in Bristol ME, and checked out the Rockland/Rockport area as well as The Marshall Point Lighthouse featured in Forrest Gump. What a beautiful area to explore! Made some stops in Bath, Damariscotta, Brunswick and Wiscassett, too!

 

Here's some of what I got...

How can you NOT fall in love with a place like this? As I stood there on the rocks at the waters edge - I can't even describe the feeling I had watching the sun rise in front of me. There wasn't a soul in the place. Just me. It was like Mother Nature was putting on a show for an audience of one. Perfect..

Marshall Point Lighthouse. Made famous by the movie "Forrest Gump". Don't say that to the Lightkeepers, though.....lol - They don't take too kindly to that notion....

There's an old farm in Wells, Maine - and I can't remember the name of it - but it's got a magnificent old barn on the property that is GIGANTIC! And barns like that are a field day for folks like me with cameras.....

The Outpost. This is one of my favorites of the week. It's from Fort Stark in Newcastle, and its a small building at the waters edge. Years ago, it served a purpose. Now....it's just a mystery. I always wonder what things like this were used for. The mystery of history....

Solace. That's what I get from getting up early and getting to see and shoot a scene like this. There's the challenge of retelling Mother Nature's story - and doing it justice. When I shot this - my only goal was to show you what I saw, and hopefully make you feel the way seeing it in person made ME feel. Sometimes I fail. But when I feel like I did it justice- it's an unbeatable feeling....
