PHOTD: A Drip Frozen in Time

Every day somewhere in the world, a single drop of water falls, and it's hardly noticed by anyone. Freeze that drop in an instance of time, and you have an abstract of beauty.

In this example, a drop of water fell two feet and then bounced off the surface of the water. The high speed flash I used caught the fleeting moment that lasted less than 1/300th of a second.

The result: a work of art only nature could produce...and only a human could appreciate.

POTD: Colors of Fall

Morrill, Maine
The Autumn of 2008 will be remembered as one of the best color-producing seasons in recent memory.

This quiet stretch of the Passagassawakeag River reflected this years colors beautifully.

POTD: What Tulips look like to an ant.

Rockland, Maine

Imagine being the size of an ant, or a flea; imagine one day you are out for stroll...(Ants and fleas do stroll...right?) And suddenly you look up and this is the view!

POTD: Late afternoon light

Summer evening down at the docks.

Belfast is one of those quiet, coastal towns in Maine that makes you feel right at ease.

The town is just big enough to offer something for everyone, and yet small enough that an evening stroll allows one to take it all in.

Belfast is my home, and if your ever in Maine, please do stop by!

POTD: The Day Ends....

Belfast, Maine

These docks rise and fall with the tides. When the tide gets unusually low, sometimes people find things that are normally submerged. In this case, someone recovered an old lobster trap or "pot", which they then promptly hauled up and left on the dock.

Do you like lobster? Most people would assume that lobsters that are too small get thrown back, but how about lobsters that are too big? Can there be such a thing?

Lobsters caught in Maine with a body shell length of 5 inches or larger are marked and thrown back and become the property of the state of Maine. They are allowed to grow as large as they can, which will help keep the population healthy for the next season.

It's not uncommon for divers in our harbor to come across granddaddy lobsters that weigh 10-20 lbs or even more.
