September 13th, 2012 Maine – A True Piece of Heaven
MOOSEHEAD LAKE, Maine (Sept. 13, 2012) - My wife is from Maine and I have chosen to love it and adopt it as my home state. (Sorry Ohio) Each year we make a pilgrimage back to that beautiful piece of paradise and explore different areas.
This year, we spent nearly a week near Greenville, on Moosehead Lake, and nearly a week on the coast in Ogunquit. As a photographer, I went crazy in both areas. Below is a gallery of photos I shot when we took a 4-hour tour on board the Katahdin, a former steamer that was christened on August 20, 1914. For years, she plied the waters of this behemoth known as Moosehead Lake towing and pushing huge logs from the prolific forestry industry in the area. It is now owned and rightly operated by the Moosehead Marine Museum. It’s a neat old ship and I had fun shooting the shoreline, the various parts of the ship and I played with my fisheye and sepia settings as well. ALL ABOARD FOR THE GALLERY (AND GALLEY).
