Maine reflections, wrap up

Probably by now, you have had enough of Maine.  But I'm kind of missing it.  I have no idea why I love Maine so much.  But I just do.  Guess there's no explaining what a heart craves.

Here's a few final photos of our Maine adventure. 


Boothbay Harbor, ME



Ocean Point, ME






Deckers Cove, Southport, ME



Lobster catch, Deckers Cove, Southport, ME





Cape Harbor, Newagen, ME


Lobtser buoys on house in Cape Harbor, Newagen, ME





Lily pond in Boothbay Harbor, ME












Me, enjoying Ocean Point, wishing to stay there all day.

Well, that's a wrap on Maine for now, friends.  I hope to get around and visit all of you to catch up with what's been happening in your world.  I've missed my visits!

Hope you have a great day!  Until tomorrow,

Maine is such a colorful state! I guess being near the water accounts for a lot of that. Very nice!

lisleman said...

the deckers cove picture really appealed to me. Nice variety of color.
Too rocky and cold to swim there - right?

Julie said...

I've never been to Maine, but your photos bring it home. Beautiful. It is on my wish list now.

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Maine looks amazing. I've never been but I can see why you love it so much. Great job with the photos.

S. Etole said...

Your photos have the neatest "look" to them. What a grand place to be.

Bob Bushell said...

It looks very nice indeed, all that water and the open spaces, I think I'd enjoy it there.

Sandra said...

I for one will never get tired of seeing Maine through your eye. it is a beautiful place and I will never see it. it looks just like all the movies i have seen that were made there. i would love to see all those old houses and the lake

Oliag said...

I love it too! The only time of year that I have not been to Maine is during the winter...someday I would love to go there to take winter photos of the coastline....

I still haven't posted this summer's Maine photos...I am a procrastinator:)

Catherine said...

By the looks of those photos we can see why you would miss it ~ beautiful!

Happy Monday!

Barbara Shallue said...

I think I love Maine now, too, although I've never been! Love the vintage look of your photos.

Sylvia K said...

I can understand why you love it -- so do I and all I've seen of it is through your terrific captures! As I've said before, it's a state I've always wanted to visit and one of the few I haven't gotten to visit! But as I've said before, your photos are the next best thing! Hope you have a great week, Reena!

Dawn said...

So Lovely...all these shots. I can see why you love it there so!

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Okay... print these up as postcards and send them to me, pronto. Thanks.

Michael Offutt said...

So lovely. I wonder if I took a picture of the serene corner of Sugarhouse where I live (as I can't afford to go anywhere at this point in my life) with the bum asking for money with a cardboard box, if you would find them serene? I think I'd have to jazz it up in black and white and pawn it off as art. Maybe then? Yes?

Jill said...

I can clearly see why you love Maine and I've never even been there. Your pictures capture it all so beautifully!

Linda R. said...

These are such great photos.. I can see why you love Maine.. It looks so beautiful there..

Ashley Sisk said...

Loving the HDR processing - gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous.

christinemyoung said...

I love the lily pond in HDR ~ the grays & purples remind me of the lake I used to live on, I miss it. If your like me, I always need a vacation after my vacation, takes me so long to fully unpack and get into the swing of things again.

TexWisGirl said...

i will never tire of these colors and the richness of the hdr effects!

Judy said...

Growing up my family vacationed all over the United States...Maine was one of the places my father talked about visiting...Tho, we never did.
I'm taking that trip now through your blog...Thanks!
As always, beautiful photos!

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

This is HDR I can handle! So enjoyed the lovely, scenic journey through Maine. Lots of color, water, and character. Bet you hated to leave...

Lisa RedWillow said...

Love this more than you know.

Ann said...

I don't think that I could ever get tired of seeing pictures of Maine.
I used to always watch the show Murder she wrote and fell in love with the little town of Cabot Cove. I've never been to Maine but it has such charm that I've always wanted to.

Steve said...

Really wonderful serires Reena.....my mother was born in Fort Kent Maine

Reena, I loved the photos, the journey, and your HDR processing. Too cool. Thanks! I love your 101 things. too.

Kathy said...

Love the processing on these pictures!

lisa said...

Just my opinion, but one can never have too much of Maine, and I have so enjoyed the photographs of your trip. These are just beautiful, especially these second one.

This is simply gorgeous Geanina!
I love the way that beautiful golden light is "peeking" through the leaf.
So nicely seen and photographed.

Thank you so much for sharing this at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful evening!

Barb said...

I love the buoys - and I love seeing Maine through your eyes. My internet has been giving me fits and I'm just now back to being able to comment . . .

Reena, I'm guessing you have everybody wanting to take a trip to Maine now--lovely photos. Yes, aren't mandevilles great--they bloom so prolifically all summer with not much care. Thanks for sharing your trip. Mickie ;)

Debi@7Gates said...

You do a such a great job with photos. I love visiting you and seeing what you have brought us. Maine is beautiful.

Nita Davis said...

So many beautiful photos it is hard for me to say which one is my favorite. Maine certainly is a gorgeous state.

Mark said...

I know why your going to miss Maine, because it's sooo darn beautiful. Great photos, so crisp and colorful, I enjoyed looking at what you saw.

Lynnie said...

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog, I too LOVE that tree shot. It is actually a beautiful photo both SOOC and B & W.

I can see why you love Maine so much! It is beautiful!! You have done a lovely job capturing it! Just wondering do you use a strong saturation on your photos in this post? Gorgeous!

Martha Z said...

Maine is an easy place to love. Since I live in California I've only visited a couple of times. I'd love to return.

ladyfi said...

Love the post-processing in these shots. Maine looks just stunning!

Arija said...

Your first shot is like a memory of another time and era, of the days of sail and solitude. Your love of Maine is like mine of Vermont, I may never go there again, yet I will always miss the place.

Thank you for sharing with the rest or Our World.

eileeninmd said...

Hello, your Maine photos are just wonderful. The coastline is just beautiful. I could go again myself. Thanks for sharing your photos.

Stewart M said...

Hi there - Maine looks like a great place to visit.

Not sure I fully embrace the "hyper-reality" processing - but the colours are remarkable.

Cheers - Stewart M - Australia

Rosemary Aubut said...

your blog title is missing moments but your not missing anything!!!

Amish Stories said...

I can sadly say that I've never been to Maine, even though i lived in New York state at one time. Sounds like someone maybe will move to Maine permanently one day soon. Richard

Madi and Mom said...

Absolutely stunning pictures.
Is the progam you used on the photos on your camera? The pics look like paintings.

Louise said...

It looks like a place to love. Lots of water, interesting buildings and people who are genuine. What's not to love? I've very much enjoyed your tour!

Just have to say these are awesome pictures of a beautiful place.

bobbybegood1 said...

I love the pic of the fishermen in purple. Great pics. Cheers reena!!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

We were in Maine for the first time last summer and we loved it too. I posted some of the same places (Boothbay Harbor and a house with lobster buoys on the side of it, not the same one, but pretty similar)...but your pictures are much better!

I know what you mean about some places just speaking to your heart! We love to travel and enjoyed many different places, but there are some that just almost make you believe in reincarnation or something, because you can't really put a finger on why it calls to you! But it does.

deb duty said...

You are really making me want to plan a trip to Maine! These photos are gorgeous and so colorful and inviting too!

Cheryl said...

The perspectives and colors are perfect. This defines Downeast.

Tricia said...

Anika said...

Wow, wonderful shots! You really captured Maine...and have moved it up on my places to visit list ;)

Really beautiful photos.

Saun said...

These are wonderful one day I'm going to make it to Maine. :)

Barb said...

You've captured the essence of Maine! The texturing on your photos is wonderful.

Pat said...

I'm missing Maine too - and I wasn't even there! I love the editing you've done on these wonderful photos!

Marilyn said...
