For the next installment of our Essence of Summer 2015 Fine Art Collection, I submit to you the beauty and wonder of Rangeley Lake – a generously sized bit of water sandwiched between the rolling, fertile mountains of northwestern Maine. Bryn and I first discovered this small town jewel over a decade ago, and we’ve been coming back ever since. Our home base for the long weekend is the reasonably-priced Town and Lake Motel, situated along the beautiful shores of the lake, with breathtaking vistas of wildlife and scenery alike. The motel, founded in 1954, offers a collection of cozy motel rooms, as well as two bedroom cabins, perfect for our family. Best of all, the owners furnish an assortment of canoes and kayaks that guests are free to use at their leisure! In all our travels around the US, Town and Lake is hands down, our favorite.
This year’s trip proved both a refreshing respite from the hectic pace of life, and a stunning assortment of photo-worthy opportunities. From mountainous thunderstorms, to pristine rainbows and mist-glazed waters, to intimate encounters with loons, mergansers and moose, it truly was a photographer’s paradise. Though, to be fair, I do think I made Bryn a little nervous, taking our new Canon 5DS out in the canoe and kayaks (It did survive though).
As always, please feel free to download as many photos as you like – they are full HD images, 1080P, and perfect for your computer, tablet or television – and if you enjoy our photos, please follow us – and for extra bonus points, share this blog with your friends to help us get the word out!
