Purple Monday

Better than cyber-Monday.



Maine Lobsterman

This is one of those photos that when I look at it I have a strong memory of the moment it was taken.  I was on vacation and got up before sunrise to go out with my camera.  I stopped at a small village and found my way to the town dock just as this guy was going out to check his lobster traps.  I can still feel the mist, smell the salt water, and hear the engine of the boat going by.

Tricolored Heron

They normally don’t look quite this blue.  I think it is the lighting that I get at this one place I go to, which comes from sunlight reflected from foliage on the other bank of the stream.  It does odd things to the color balance.
