A Rare Day

Winter bestows its own delights for the photographer in Maine, but an interesting sky is a rarity. Now that I've written that, there will undoubtedly be many who disagree! I love the brilliant blue of a deep freeze and the flat gray that comes with the anticipation of can be found in all weather...however, I'm a cloud fan and a chaser of shadows and slivers of light. The following photos were taken at the Blue Hill Fairground two days before Nemo. It was a frigid brisk walk with a sky that made the weathered buildings pop in the landscape.


Peter and Cooper race ahead of me trying to keep warm!





Weather warnings were increasingly ominous in the days that followed. The next photo was taken of snowfall in the early hours before the storm intensified. It could have been much worse...and the power stayed on!

Snow Crystals

  1. Hello Carol:
    What your images most certainly capture here is the intensity of the cold. Possibly like you, we really enjoy all aspects of winter and sometimes think the colder the better!

    1. Hello Jane and Lance! It is snowing and the wind is howling tonight, but at this point we are on the downside of winter and we have gained at least two hours of daylight!

      My next post will be for you!

    2. So we have seen! More snow promised here at the weekend!

  2. Oh carol I recognized Blue Hill Fairgrounds right away! So many happy memories here-from 4-H to horse camp with my youngest daughter to recent farmers market days! Thank you!

    1. Hello Rain! I'm so glad you liked the photos! The fairground is a very different place in winter from the excitement and bustle of summer. Now, only the dog walkers liven things up a bit!
