Saturday six of us from the KV Camera Club went on a field trip to Deer Island. Here are some of my favorite pictures.

Photos at home

It has been said if you can't find any pictures to take at home you aren't looking hard enough. I was getting in the car this morning to go looking for photo opportunities and decided to walk around the yard instead. I got these three pictures. It was very windy which made these pictures a challenge.

#1 - My front yard as reflected in my living room window.

#2 - My flowering crab tree.

#3- A plant growing up through last year's maple leaf .

Rothesay Yacht Club After Sun Down

I arrived at the Rothesay Yacht Club wharf mere moments late for the setting sun. I snapped some pictures just the same. While walking back to my car I noticed this lady and her dog enjoying the tranquillity. I needed to quickly back way up in order to get this picture framed. Wrong lens on again. A moment later they were gone.

Launch Day at RYC

I went to the Rothesay Yacht Club to photograph some of the boat launches. Here is one of many.

I have been so busy the last few days taking pictures I haven't had time to post any. Coming home from Rothesay late this afternoon I noticed this fellow and his companion along the Hammond River taking a break from fishing. Carolyn stopped long enough for me to jump out of the car. He was up high and well hidden in the trees on the river side. I was able to walk slowly to a somewhat clear spot where I took this shot. Sorry but that is the best I could do as he didn't hang around long enough for me to get in a better position. Like I have said many times before, " it isn't perfect but it is the best I could do given the circumstances".

I have a number of new pictures to post. If it rains tomorrow I should have a good assortment of the boat launch at Rothesay Yacht Club on Saturday.

Rothesay last evening

Carolyn and I went to Rothesay Yacht club to meet Bruce and try for a sunset picture. I managed to squeeze this setting sun picture as the fog rolled in. Taken handheld from inside the car.

We then went to visit Bruce and snapped a few pictures of his flowers. It was almost 8:30 Pm and the light was quite poor. There was a breeze which made my 1/5 second exposure time pictures a bit soft. I'll get some keeper pictures when the light is better.

When we arrived home we discovered a visitor at our bird feeders. He quickly escaped to the safety of this tree and watched us from about 25 feet up. Carolyn held the flashlight while I focused and took this picture.

Montage, blossoms, and a wild deer.

Here are a few more of the images I took today. I wish the blue sky had lasted a little longer.

Apple Blossoms

I took these apple blossom pictures today. Thanks Penny for the inspiration. The Lady Bug on the leaf is for Lucy.
