As the storm began to clear earlier this week, I decided to head out and see what Portland Head Light would look like. I arrived to a gray sky, about a half hour before sunset. Casco Bay was churning, and the wind was whipping. I decided on a higher vantage point, as in my rush I'd forgotten my micro spikes for climbing around on the slippery rocks, and the bay was so angry that it was a bit more dangerous climbing around on the rocks than usual. As I got set up, the sky took on a pinkish hue as the setting sun tried to filter through. The snow blanketing the cliff face and rocks added very different look to what I'm used to seeing there. Made for a chilly, but beautiful evening. Quick announcement that I’m having a FLASH SALE this weekend on all metal prints!

Back to landscapes as promised 😂. Anyhow, I have spent more time by myself this year than I ever have in my life. It’s certainly a learned skill to be comfortable alone, and I’m guessing most people would find themselves feeling quite unsure of how to spend their time the way I do. My camera makes that easier. Time flies by and the hours pass quickly. I have also reconnected with old friends, made some really great new ones. It’s been a challenging, yet probably good for me, journey. Hoping to make many new friends, have more adventures, and just have fun with life, because who doesn’t love laughter and fun? #rocklandmaine #rocklandbreakwater #rocklandbreakwaterlighthouse #igersmaine #igers_maine #maineigers #maine_igers #newenglandtraveljournal #maineisgorgeous #mainething #onlyin207 #raw_community_member #raw_newengland #downeastmagazine #themainemag #maine

Portland Head Light is always a beautiful place to visit, no matter the season. There were only a few people there on this cold afternoon. 🥶 . I hope you enjoy this composition of the most photographed lighthouse in the world. I wanted to include the snow, and the frozen puddle in the foreground, while highlighting the simple beauty of this silent beacon during winter. . Canon EOS Rebel T6. Handheld. 📷 .

"Great egrets are relatively uncommon inland, so when one showed up on the banks of the Kennebec River last July, I enthusiastically hurried down to photograph it. Ospreys are dramatic when they dive, and eagles are majestic, but I consider egrets to be Maine’s most graceful and elegant birds." .

"Somewhere in Acadia" - which is true - I believe I could have mapped this spot if I had done it when we were there, but unfortunately I didn't.... and maybe it's a familiar view to someone & you can tell me where it is! We were simply driving past & I wanted to stop for a couple shots, so we paused briefly... No parking was really available. However, it is a pretty little throwback to the beauty of Autumn in Maine & I wanted to share it! #maine #lovemaine #mainephotography #visitmaine #maineisgorgeous #naturephotography #landscape #landscapephotography #wanderlust #onlyinmaine #maine_igers #scenicmaine #mainescene #newengland_igers #ignewengland #pulledoverforthis #hadtosnapthat #raw_newengland #travelphotographer #travelphotography #fortheloveofmaine #downeastmagazine #mainelife #themainemag #mainesucks #solotraveling #yankeemagazine #fall #acadia #acadianationalpark

I shoot a lot of sunrises. It’s a fun challenge, but more so I do it for that moment when the sun comes up over the horizon. In that moment I feel the warmth of the sun, and everything going on, good and bad, melts away. It’s a moment of peace. I watch the day begin and everything come to life. And then I get to capture that moment, bring it home with me, and share it. That’s why I love sunrises🌅 • • • #sunrise #mainesunrise #beach #pier #oobpier #oob #oldorchardbeach #maine #mainecoast #eastcoast #MyMaine #MaineThing #maine_igers #MaineLife #downeastmagazine #getoutside #explore #optoutside #nature #nikon #nikonphotography #NikonNoFilter #nikonME #mainephotography #landscapephotography #longexposure

Frosted. #ihadtopulloverforthis is really a thing with me. I rarely get from point A to point B without capturing a few moments in time along the way. . This beautiful scene calls to me every time I drive by, but I only capture it occasionally. I pulled over on the next side street, and then carefully made my way back on a very busy road to the bridge, where I tried to quickly document this beautiful scene. . If you're ever driving by and see me in my olive green winter coat out documenting our world, wave, but don't beep, because I startle easily. 😉 . ➡️ In addition to my posts, follow along in my stories for more photos, suggestions, and travel tips on all my Rambles and Nibbles. . #maine_lovers_photos #newenglandphotography #newenglandtravelblog #raw_newengland #fortheloveofmaine #scenicmaine #mainething #thewaylifeshouldbe #visitmaine #mainetourism #mymaine #themainemag #downeastmagazine #roadtrip_newengland #navigatingnewengland #onlyin207 #roadtrippers #hey_ihadtosnapthat #scenesofnewengland #snow #mainewinter #mainelife #mainephotography #capturemoments #frostedwithsnow #nelust #igers_newengland #igers_maine #thewaylifeshouldbe

This might look like a mess. However, it was the most delicious breakfast this morning. I made Paleo ginger-spice cookies a couple nights ago. I decided that they are also served well as breakfast food! After I worked out this morning I wanted something hearty. So I put some dairy-free eggnog and organic frozen cherries on top of the delicious paleo cookies. In for the win. I’m upping my effort to eat no gluten, dairy, red meat, or pork. I do feel a difference! So although this seems like a decadent breakfast, it ticks all the boxes of things that are good for my body. Some days I don’t want to eat this kind of food. But then if I get back into eating the foods that create more inflammation in my body I really suffer for it. I have chronic pain in my shoulder that diminishes by about 85% when I make the food and lifestyle choices that will reduce inflammation. One choice at a time! #capecodphotography #wickedcapecod #yankeemagazine #capeology #capecodinsta #naturallight #capecod #artistsofinstagram #rebeccacapecodlife #capecodguide #capeology #capecodinstagram #capecodimages #yourshotphotographer #oceanlife #ouroceandaily #newenglandphotography #visitcapecod #falmouth #capecodwinter #cozy #bundleup #downeastmagazine #paleo #dairyfree #onedayatatime #selfcare

There are some people who lobster the entire winter which always amazes me, but definitely they are the few and far between. It seems the boats thin out significantly leaving only a few lovely focal points for my photographs come January. One thing on my bucket list is to go on one of the lobster boats for a few trips and have a whole series of the actual hard work on the boat rather than just making it appear so glamorous at sunrise and sunset. The Owls Head fishing coop has been busy lately it seems with people getting their gear hauled out, but surprisingly there are still quite a few boats out there. #owlshead #owlsheadmaine #maine #lobsterboat #lobsterboats #mainelobstermen #raw_community_member #raw_newengland #igersmaine #igers_maine #maine_igers #maineigers #newenglandtraveljournal #downeastmagazine #onlyin207 #mainething #maineisgorgeous

We took a break from cleaning up our new place by taking a walk on the beach, which is only a few blocks away! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Southern Maine is crazy busy in the summer, so I’m grateful to have this quiet winter to explore! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The downside to traveling places offseason- or, living in vacation towns out of vacation season is there are very few things open. But, off season means I can explore the beach with Stella! I should have my new place set up in a few days, so you are welcome to come by for tea!!!
