Today in Maine

Linking with Communal Global for my today from Maine, which this time of year often lives up to it's moniker, Vacationland.  Hope you're having a fabulous today in your part of the world. 




Sometimes I forget what a beautiful place I live in.  Have to look at it with fresh eyes; slow down; stop and smell the roses...and the fish bait.  Caught some nice light near the waterfront in Portland.  Lucky me.

The light was so delicious....even the seagulls were stopping to drink it in.

The water looks like liquid gold, it's stunning. I'm kinda wishing I was that sea gull right about now.

What a wonderful array of boats, Susan. Hey, you have sun?????

Fabulous! Sometimes I like the perfume of fish bait better than the smell of roses. I'm going to the west coast in a couple of weeks, to visit my family and my ocean roots. Hoping for some of that lovely light, too, but your photos will be hard to match. Beautiful.

You captured the light and subjects beautifully. I haven't got the light thing down with my photography yet and as we head into the glare of the summer sun it seems to get even harder.

Wow - you make me want to visit Maine so badly with your photos

Looks just wonderful, wish I could see it in real life. Maybe one day. :-)

my first thought was: that first photo is wall-worthy. then I looked at them all again, more closely, and came to a different conclusion. they all are. on that second look I noticed the blue cable, and that the reflections are both above and below the gull. and I like the holes with the ginormous nuts and bolts. it's a great photo. when are you going to exhibit?

Love the seagull! They are either super annoying or super photogenic!

Just a reminder that YOU DO LIVE in a beautiful place! My Dads say they choose New England every time when hitting the road....which means many trips so far. Stayed in B and B's in Kennebunk...really enjoyed it.

Hi Susan! Thanks for dropping by today, it was great to hear from you.
Yes, that 'light' you were lucky to capture so beautifully is stunning. Isn't it a great feeling when you are witnessing 'nature' at her finest. Love those moments.
