maine moon

my final summertime hurrah, visiting a friend who lives on the coast in a northernmost part of new england. this is the view from her porch on this warm august night, with the crescent moon and venus both setting in the evening sky over the reach.

Chris, just wanted you to know that I enjoy your pictures. I'm getting familiar with a new 35mm digital and snapping stuff that moves me! Check out my site if you'd like. The Digital Looking Glass is my "photography" blog.

Beautiful!
I love the idea that August is warm where you are, whilst we're embracing the chill here!
Summer seems so far away, thankfully.
Enjoy your last night!:D

Nakia and Mrs. DeRaps: maine is truly a beautiful place. this shot was taken on the coast a bit south of machias. Tara: it's always a bit of a pleasant jolt to realize that someone is reading this blog at the end of the season opposite mine!
