Out on the lake at sunset
Posted By: palmor, 09-19-2008, 06:55 AM

Another couple from my summer trip to Maine. We stayed with friends who own a Lodge about 45min south of Baxter State Park. These where taken one night when we went in search for Kingfishers. I'm still trying to decide if they work or not, so let me know I'll say again taking photos in a small rocking boat was a challenge, fun but challenging!

Spetacular set of images. Tough to wake up that early and do this on my own. You are making me feel bad!

Thanks for the replies all! I think I'm going to submit these to the PPG, see if I get lucky. I haven't had anything excepted in a really long time so I'm not holding my breath

Thanks again
