My family and I vacationed in Maine last month. We had a family reunion to attend way up north in Frenchville and with my husbands large immediate family we had to find a location large enough to house us all. We found some nice cabins in Stockholm with a beautiful lake right across the street. Along with the typical family shots the we all take on vacation I wanted to get some shots for "me" and if all worked out for my stock photo library as well.
The following images are my favorites so far. The problem with taking a zillion pictures on vacation is then finding the time to go through them all. I have plenty more to look through and edit, but if I don't share these now, Christmas may be here before I ever get to the rest of them!
For anyone interested... and please let me know if you are interested. Most of my scenics are available for purchase. I plan to make a page dedicated to purchasing images in the near future. Some give-aways are also a big probability! So also let me know if you have any favorites and maybe I'll make the most popular pic the give-away.
This shot was taken the following night, 8/10/14 and is the Super Moon. It was amazing how large it looked a few minutes prior when it was still peeking through the trees. Now just above them, it was still big and beautiful.
I wanted to try and get some nice night sky shots while away. I had the thought that we would be further away from light pollution. But with a large RV campground behind us, a bright street light in the parking area of the cabins, and the full moon, I was lucky to get any stars at all.
Later in the week, the time of the moon rise was getting later and later which gave me a better chance at night sky shots and the milky way, which happened to be positioned directly across the lake from where we were staying. Unfortunately the weather deteriorated as well and although you can get a glimpse of the milky way through the clouds, it just didn't work out as I had hoped.
Looking forward to shooting more night skies in the future... and very excited that fall is on it's way so I can shoot some (hopefully) beautiful foliage this year.
