A trip to Vinalhaven Island was last weeks highlight.
It has been a busy week. It takes a lot of time to process all the photos taken at a wedding, and I am now working on the album. I took a day off from the wedding photos to drive to Rockland and take the Ferry to Vinalhaven Island. The trip is about 1 and 1/4 hours each way, and we stayed on the island for a couple of hours. Just walking and taking photos, and before you know it, the return Ferry is boarding. Island communities abound in photo ops. I really like this photo of lobstering from a dory. I was amazed at how many Lobster Traps were on board, and they were still pulling more.

Take notice of the Left Time and Right Time at the Gawkers Market in Vinalhaven. A very unique market and cafe. The menu was surprisingly extensive, and the ice cream sundae delicious. 

The trip also afforded nice ocean views of Owls Head Lighthouse and the Rockland Breakwater Light. The day was slightly overcast, but you can not always depend on blue skies and clear weather. The sea was calm, but horizons still have to be straightened in PhotoShop. This was my first attempt to make the sky a little more interesting than nature provided.

Spent some time in Rockland before the Ferry trip, and in Camden after the excursion to Vinalhaven Island. There is always time to sample some of the local eating establishments. Had a great Clam Chowder at Clan MacLaren's in Rockland and some great Mexican Food in Camden.

This evening is the first meeting of the Capital Area Camera Club for the new club year. We meet in Augusta, Maine on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of every month, from September to May. The club tries to plan photo shoots and day trips, throughout the year. CACC will have a show at the Lyceum Gallery in Lewiston, Maine in January of 2013.
