Silent Sunday: Winter on the Maine Coast

Portland Head Light in Winter.   Wish I could say this photo was mine, but it's not.  I found it on the internet.  The photo was taken by Cynthia Farr-Weinfeld. Here is the link to her webpage.

  I intended to post one of my own, but I got there and the batteries in my camera died.  Perhaps it's just as well:  I couldn't have gotten anything anywhere near as beautiful!

I always wanted to live in Maine. Sounds like such a wonderful far off place. Pictures like this add to the desire. Thanks for sharing!

Dead batteries :-(

This looks like an amazing place-- cold, but amazing.

Hope you have a great Sunday.

Nice picture, even if it's not yours. I've never been to Maine and now I'm living all the way across the country from it, probably will have to read blogs from Maine to find out more about it.

Beautiful! I've always been enchanted by the coast line of the Northeast. Maybe one day, I'll actually make it up there!

Frau said...

it's certainly beautiful in Maine! Have a wonderful Sunday!

Beyond beautiful!

Eva Gallant said...

Bombshell: You need to at least visit sometime!

Joanna: You have an equally beautiful vista!

Bored: Coming to pay a visit!

DJan: Hubby and I managed to travel all the way across the country to Washington, Oregon and California last fall (refer to road trip posts in my archives) after I retired; you need to find a way to do the same, some day. It's so worth it to drive and see the country!

Lorie: Thanks; Wish I could take credit for it!

Melissa: Thanks for dropping by; come back soon!

Danielle: Probably smart of you not to vacation here in winter unless you like to ski. It's cold!

MamaZen: Isn't it?

Acting: Thanks!

Cabrals: Definitely a great place to at least spend summers after your retire.

Sarah: I hope you do; it's even more beautiful than the photos.

Frau: Yep! I love it.

Sonya: It sure is.

Boy, the photo you found is absolutely gorgeous!
There is nothing more frustrating than to be somewhere and have no batteries....that is what happened the first time I saw two moose....and had my camera but no batteries with me! It took me 3 years later to finally get one on camera!
You will have to go back there one day and get your own photo...it sure looks like a wonderful place.

You know it's a good photograph when I can look at an image of an overcast winter sky and snow without wincing in the middle of January!

Ocean Girl said...

Hello Eva, I've seen your warm smiley face always and have intended to visit and say hi.

Nice to meet you Eva.

If you are going to use others' photos in your blog posts, it is customary AND polite to name the photographer who took it and provide a link to their website where you must have found it. In this case, it is MY photo: Cynthia Farr-Weinfeld. Here is my website: http://www.cfwphotography.com . Thank you to all the people who commented on what a nice photo was. --CFW
