Summer Wanderings Part 1: Maine

Down East in the Heart of Maine

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography

As has become our tradition, we dedicated much of our summer to exploring the eastern bits of our fine country, among visits to family and friends.  This year was no exception – with a trip, perhaps a bit longer than we would like – to explore Northern New England, Cape Cod, Rural Vermont, and central Appalachia.  For your viewing pleasure, we’ll be publishing one post for each state we photographed: Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, Virginia and Tennessee.

Above, is one of our favorite shots from a pair of loons we’ve been photographing for the past several years.  They spend their summers on Rangeley Lake, located in northwestern Maine, a handful of miles from both the New Hampshire and Canadian borders.  The birds have developed a bit of a pattern, and can be found most mornings and evenings along the strip of lake where we stay.  Unfortunately, this year they were not accompanied by a chick, but hopefully they will have more luck again next season.

While in New England, we also took a day trip to Boothbay, Maine.  Located about an hour north of Portland, this area of Maine offers a wide variety of tourist-oriented adventures, from puffin tours, to the Boothbay Railway Village (pictured above).  This was our first time to this part of Maine, and the park proved especially enjoyable, offering vintage train rides, a collection of several dozen historic structures, many of which you could tour, a large collection of antique cars, and an extensive model railway.

Essence of Summer Part 3: Lake and Loon

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).
