Traditionally known as the stretch of Maine running from Ellsworth to the Maritime Provinces - this section of the coast is a photographers dream. I'm not one to fancy myself as a 'landscape' photographer but when you get these kinds of views at sunrise and sunset, you have to take the opportunity to do your best. I made it my mission to wake an hour before sunrise (instead of my usual 'up at the crack of 9am' when on vacation :) and drag myself to the nearest harbor to catch first light. And thanks to the recent forest fires on the west coast, both sunrise and sunset over a 4 day period were absolutely off the charts! Toss in an evening cruise aboard the Schooner 'Appledore' based out of Camden Harbor, include great food, warm weather and a few cocktails - well, you get the idea! Hope you enjoy the imagery as much as we did!

An amazing few days of color brought to you by Mother Nature!
