Nubble Light

Nubble Light, Cape Neddick ME

On the way home from Easter Dinner at the relatives in York, we stopped for a moment at Nubble Light (well, we detoured to Nubble Light) so I could take a few shots. Nubble Light is one of my standard test subjects when I get a new camera…and it is one of my favorite “scenic” places to photograph along the southern Maine coast. I mean…well maintained romantic lighthouse, crashing surf, blue green sea, a few clouds in the sky…what more could you ask? And here the gull adds to the composition. ๐Ÿ™‚

Considering Gull

On our rainy weekend I was reduced to shooting gulls out the car window at the beach. Easy. This specimen,  a Ring-billed Gull, posed nicely on top of the restricted parking sign. I am not sure what he was considering but he was certainly considering something. ๐Ÿ™‚
