If you are into Flowers and beautiful gardens, then a trip to the Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay, Maine should be on your travel list. Here are a few closeups of some unique looking flowers I found on my visit. To view more Flower images, Click HERE to go to my Flower Gallery.
On my recent trip to the Maine coast, I stayed in a small fishing village called Stonington, which happens to lead the state in pounds and dollar value of lobster landings . It's harbor supports more than 300 Lobster boats. In close proximity to the harbor is a beautiful beach and cove called Sand Beach. These are some of the images captured one night during a beautiful sunset... Hope you enjoy! To view additional images from this beautiful area in Maine, Please CLICK HERE.

Well, the photo below should clearly identify what the original photo was.. It was a close-up of a Dandelion. Most of you clearly identified it correctly. There was one person (Ed Esposito) who correctly identified it using the scientific term of Taraxacum. So, if you want to use different terminology to identify a Dandelion, you can impress your friends/family by using the word TARAXACUM! Thanks, Ed.... and thanks to those who participated.
See if you can guess what this might be.... I will post what it is and who got it correct in a few days... Thanks for participating...
Here are a few images from my weekend trip down to Cape Cod. This first one is sunrise at the Sagamore Bridge, which is 1 of 2 bridges that connects the Cape to the mainland.
This next one is the boardwalk going out to Scusset Beach in Bourne.
The sand dunes at Sandy Neck Beach in Barnstable.
Entrance to a Falmouth Beach
Nobska Lighthouse near Woods Hole
I took a drive this past weekend to the north shore of Massachusetts. I was walking on Wingersheek beach in Gloucester at sunset during high tide, and unfortunatley, the sunset was not over the ocean. So I just happened to turn around and saw this path leading to the parking lot with these 2 trees on each side of the path with the beautiful sky as a background.
This next image is from Plum Island in Newburyport, Massachusetts. Liked the stormy sky against the lighter sand and snow on the beach.
The next image is of the famous fish shack at Rockport harbor.
Well, I just had to get out there this weekend to get my Photography fix in.... So, I took a drive down to the Cape Cod Canal early Saturday AM to see what I could capture. There were a few early morning clouds around, but the clouds soon dissipated leaving a mostly clear blue sky to my dismay. So, here are a couple of photos of the Sagamore Bridge, and one taken along the beach.
So, since this post is about the Cape Cod Canal, I thought I would include a photo that was taken a couple of years ago from the shore near Mass Maritime Academy in Buzzards Bay.
Here are 4 of my favorite Photos from my visits to the Maine coast over the past couple of summers. To see more of my seascape photos, click on any of the images and it will take you directly to my Seascape gallery.
Well, it has been so cold here and getting even colder, my thoughts turned to Ice. I thought back to my trip to Newfoundland where there were icebergs floating along the coast. These Icebergs break off the glaciers in Greenland and float down along the coast of Newfoundland.
Here are a few winter scenes I captured from Scusset Beach on Cape Cod on a very cold Saturday afternoon. Loved the contrast of the freshly fallen white snow with the sandy beach, the ocean, and the sea grass..
