Exploring East: Travels Along the Atlantic States – Maine Moose

2013 07 Fine Art New England 23 Rangeley

Moose!  One of the joys of visiting Rangeley, Maine has to be the sunset drives up Rt 16 toward the Canadian border.  This road is known for moose sightings – so much so that in the 10 or so times we’ve done the drive, only once did we not see a moose.  More typically, as with our last evening in Rangeley this year, you will see several moose each time you go out.  This year, it seemed the moose were more skiddish than in previous years, but the young female pictured above was more than happy to eat from the boggy terrain with an ever-increasing audience.   By this point, the rain was falling substantially and I suspect that deadened the sound of cars enough to give her a sense of ease.  So, we spent 20 minutes watching her, shooting some video and snapping lots of photos in the dimming light.

On the way home, we stopped at Coos Canyon – a breathtaking series of falls slicing through the granite walls of this gentle Maine valley.  With a healthy helping of rain over the past week, the falls were surging like I hadn’t seen before, making for a bit more of a blur on the water than I had hoped, but after a bit of tweaking, I was able to dial in the desired look.  Above, is the upper falls – a more gradual, pool-filled falls that runs the better part of a football field.  In the slideshow below, you’ll see the more truncated and violent lower falls.   As always, enjoy – and of course, feel free to download as HD desktop wallpaper below!

Falling for the Mountains – Foliage Fools Part 2

Well, it seems you have stumbled upon part two of our adventure in the mountains of North Carolina.  Above is the view from the top of Upper Creek Falls, just outside of Linville, NC.  It’s about a mile hike to this site along some moderately steep trails, but we did it with our whole family, kids and all, without too much of a problem and limited whining (mostly from me).  The reward at the bottom was pretty amazing, with the water flowing along this gigantic, lightly rolling granite outcropping which tapers into a 60 foot waterfall – without a rail in site (slightly stressful with a pile of kids anxious to look over the edge).  But with the fall colors in full array, it was certainly a worthy hike!

It seems there was quite the large contingent of chipmunks around the house where we stayed.  This little guy caught my eye – if you notice, his color is considerably lighter than a typical chipmunk.  Scientifically speaking, it probably has something to do with gamma radiation or a radioactive spider.    Enjoy – and of course, feel free to download as a desktop wallpaper!

Freebie! Nova Scotia: To and Fro (Part 3)

Well no journey would begin without travel, nor end without travel from our destination.  On this trip, we traveled via Delta Airlines and had the privilege [is privilege the right word?]  of visiting 5 separate airports, including extended visits to DC and Atlanta.  But the delays weren’t all bad – they allowed us to get some great aviation photos and make some new friends.  Enjoy!

Freebie! Nova Scotia Autumn Adventure Wallpaper (Part 2)

Last week, we had the pleasure of visiting the wonderful autumn wonderland that is Nova Scotia.  Here is part two of our photo collection.  The above photo is of Hall’s Harbour, a tiny little inlet located on the Bay of Fundy.  The tides in this area are so large that the water level rises and falls 50 feet with every tide.  It’s really a pretty cool spot.

The fall colors truly couldn’t have been better.  When we arrived, the colors had just begun to pop, and by our third day there, it was absolutely stunning.  The weather was pleasant though a bit brisk (in the 60s), but in the sun it was quite comfortable.  And with all the photos on our blog, you are welcome to use them as desktop wallpaper – they are in widescreen format.  Enjoy the photos!

Freebie! Nova Scotia Autumn Adventure Wallpaper (Part 1)

Last week, we had the pleasure of visiting the wonderful autumn wonderland that is Nova Scotia.  We spent three days exploring the southern half of the province – taking photos everywhere we went.  It had been ten years since our last visit, but not much had changed – one of the reasons we like this area so much.  From a sunrise shoot at Peggy’s Cove, to sunset at Hall’s Harbour, we  had a wonderful time capturing the beauty and diversity of Nova Scotia.  Enjoy the photos!

Our home base for this journey was the wonderful Bayview Pines Country Inn B&B.  If you’re ever in Mahone Bay, I would strongly suggest checking them out.  Not only do you get a comfortable room with a view, but a truly wonderful breakfast, complete with homemade preserves.  It’s truly a treat!
