Maine – August 2008

Maine unveiled her beauty to me in my one week visit. Once again, Mother Nature proved to be a photographer’s best subject and stylist.

Acadia National Park was blooming with flora and fauna that electrified under the sunlight. Blades of grass magically lit by sunshine among the humming rocks at the base of a stream. There were magical secrets appearing to me from every corner.

Monhegan Island is a piece of undisturbed paradise in ten miles off the coast of Maine. Accessible only by boat, there are no cars or paved roads on the Island. The year-round population has seldom exceeded 65 people, but in the summer, there are loyal visitors. For more than 100 years, Monhegan has been a summer haven for artists and other visitors who appreciate its isolation, the beauty of its wilderness areas, its quiet relaxed atmosphere, and its unhurried pace. We were fortunate enough to spend a day in this serene paradise.

We ate succulent lobster, walked on many weathered docks, smelled many flowers and breathed a lot of sweet air.

Photobucket made me narrow my pictures from 2,500 to 50. I’m not sure if these are the best, but somehow after all the narrowing down, these were the survivors.
