Up East

January 10, 2012

. . . . . . .

Above, I’m sharing more views of our cliff walk in Maine, this time on film.

The colors were really surprising and left a lasting impression; the water was a vibrant shade of aquamarine that day (if it wasn’t so damn cold, I would’ve thought we were in the Caribbean…).

. . . . .

Also: I’ve been enjoying NYC, a video by the super-talented Jessica Williams.

    Just gorgeous…I can feel that water, hear the ocean, really see those beautiful rocks…wish I was there instead of sitting in front of a computer in an office cubicle….sigh. Thank you so much for posting these.

    That jagged rock is so beautiful!

    the beach in wintertime is one of my very favorite places to be. you’ve captured yours expertly.

  12. January 10, 2012 2:19 pm

    incredible! perfect display of winter colors (minus the snow, which is a good thing)

  13. January 10, 2012 2:54 pm

    Feeling that wind and fresh air from here. Jealous in a good way ;)

    I love the colors you captured! It looks like a place full of mystery and magic. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful photographs.

    Just signed up to follow you. Love your eye, the flatness of the light. Just lovely. Inspiring. Is it rude to ask what type of film you used in the above post? I’m all analog right now after 20 years away and studying various film qualities – trying to find my favorites.

      These photos were all taken with Portra 400.

    I grew up in Maine with Lynsey. She introduced me to your blog and photography. I am loving your photos from your visit to Maine and More and Co! They make me homesick.

    seeing your photographs makes me wish I could smell the ocean air and taste that salty breeze. they’re lovely.

  19. January 10, 2012 11:04 pm

    Gorgeous in every way. That photo of rocks is perfectly divine…especially since this week I’m totally in love with smooth river-rocks. Wonderful, wonderful post.

    Beautiful, makes me long for a place I’ve never even been! Thanks Brian, it’s always such a pleasure visiting here.

  21. January 11, 2012 6:44 am

    Lovely! Thanks for sharing!

  22. January 11, 2012 6:57 am

    first trees, then waves. what a gorgeous sequence of photos
    please keep it coming!

    this post is like a picture book. i can read the story without a word.

    When I was a child I once collected shining pebbles on the beach. They looked like gemstones. Then they dried, and the magic disappeared. Years later, I discovered that you can always make them shine: you just need some water, and they’ll be gems again.

    Prouts Neck? I love that walk–in fact, just did it Christmas week when I was home for the holidays. Summer is an especially beautiful time there; the water can be turquoise, green, deep blue.

    is this the marginal trail between freeport and portland? we did it in december and it was so beautiful. there is a large white house halfway through that has been abandoned and would be marvelous to fix up. i also took video on my phone so i can listen to the waves while i’m eating lunch at work here in pennsylvania.

    The palette of blues and browns in this group of photos is terrific.

  28. January 12, 2012 2:33 pm

    superb set, brian. happy new year to you!

  29. January 17, 2012 1:24 am

    These were so lovely to see on a mid January day in Michigan. I lived in Maine for a few years. My son was born there. I miss it. I miss the ocean.

    Agh, you’re killing me. Like Kristen, I’m from Maine and it doesn’t take much to make me homesick. These are gorgeous, and make me realize its been far too long since I have visited the Maine Coast in the wintertime.

    oh! brian!

    Where in Maine? We go to Mt. Desert each summer. It looks like the walk @ either Wonderland or Ship Harbor, in Bass Harbor/Tremont.

    Stormy and wintery, great photos.
