Exploring East: Travels Along the Atlantic States – Maine Moose

2013 07 Fine Art New England 23 Rangeley

Moose!  One of the joys of visiting Rangeley, Maine has to be the sunset drives up Rt 16 toward the Canadian border.  This road is known for moose sightings – so much so that in the 10 or so times we’ve done the drive, only once did we not see a moose.  More typically, as with our last evening in Rangeley this year, you will see several moose each time you go out.  This year, it seemed the moose were more skiddish than in previous years, but the young female pictured above was more than happy to eat from the boggy terrain with an ever-increasing audience.   By this point, the rain was falling substantially and I suspect that deadened the sound of cars enough to give her a sense of ease.  So, we spent 20 minutes watching her, shooting some video and snapping lots of photos in the dimming light.

On the way home, we stopped at Coos Canyon – a breathtaking series of falls slicing through the granite walls of this gentle Maine valley.  With a healthy helping of rain over the past week, the falls were surging like I hadn’t seen before, making for a bit more of a blur on the water than I had hoped, but after a bit of tweaking, I was able to dial in the desired look.  Above, is the upper falls – a more gradual, pool-filled falls that runs the better part of a football field.  In the slideshow below, you’ll see the more truncated and violent lower falls.   As always, enjoy – and of course, feel free to download as HD desktop wallpaper below!
