Foggy Harbor, Stonington, Deer Isle, Maine #2

Come take a trip with me . . . in 2007, I began researching my trip to Maine. I knew I wanted to visit Camden, Blue Hill, Stonington, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. I chose Blue Hill as my main base as it is smack dab in the middle between Stonington and Bar Harbor and Acadia. I did stay several nights in Camden as it was the southernmost point of the trip and my first stop before heading Downeast. I promise I'll post some images of Camden Harbor soon. Should you decide to plan a trip to Maine, stop by this website, So many beautiful images.

Little did I know I would have the perfect opportunity to photograph a few beautiful images of my own as I traveled to Stonington. As I arrived in Blue Hill and checked into the Inn, I decided to trek to Stonington as it was still early in the day. I found the village of Stonington covered in a shroud of mist and fog. I almost didn't make the drive to Stonington that day as the weather wasn't the best. Then I remembered something every photographer should remember, isn't that the perfect time to go see what there is to photograph, when the weather is not at its best. Yep. It was perfect! Stonington is located on Deer Isle which is a gem in and of itself. I can't explain it. You have to experience it for yourself. Along the drive you will pass harbors, coves and a few inlets, but first to get to Deer Isle you must cross over on the causeway bridge. Deer Isle is probably one of the single most unique experiences I've ever encountered in my many travels in the United States. It is just that unique.

I'm not certain that this is the same vessel as my post from yesterday although it very likely could be. Enjoy!

Postscript: Is it me or are those gulls standing at attention as the windjammer strolls by.


  1. Oh WOW!!!! Carol these shots are amazing!! So stunning. My favorite is your first shot in the fog...I just love everything that is going on in this picture. Wonderful :)

  2. The thing about the weather is that it changes quickly in Maine, doesn't it? Stunning beauty here.
