Maine is a natural, drop dead gorgeous, stunning beauty. Capturing her four sides, all seasons of the year means a photographer is pretty busy.Has to be on his toes to keep up with the photo opportunities. To try to portray what it is like in Vacationland, collecting the eye candy in different ways from the same vantage point depending on the season. As a Maine real estate broker promoting the state, the local communities to buyers who have never been here, photos, simple images one by one are critical to collect, post, circulate.
If you think Maine is just sea coast, lobsters and light houses alone with Downeast dry humor, that is only one small brief glimpse in to the Vacationland portal. The image the 100 cruise ships off shore loaded with far away passengers row to the mainland, come ashore to sample.
Then go home with their Maine memorabilia, post cards, t shirts.
Carrying happy bellies full of seafood delicacies.Waddling down the pier back to the 10 story floating hotel on water. Loaded to the gills with sampled suped up, jazzed with the all the extra Maine baked potatoes. Carrying deep inside a healthy wide, tall slab of fresh blueberry pie. Loaded, lathered high with locally made ice cream. But Maine has many other sides.
The further, deeper inland you go in Maine, the more the hidden gems appear, shine brightly.The local vibrant communities, talented hard working residents populating them appear, smile, are glad to meet you.
Visit with a real "native Mainer" in the woods, where the wildlife is, lives. Out on a Maine lake, fishing, paddling a kayak with just you and Mr & Mrs Loon off the starboard side.
Or hanging on for dear life in a whitewater raft. Paddle high in one hand, reaching forward to grab a short rope with the other. Shooting down a very fast, one loud, noisy Maine river. One of probably three major water raceways. The Penobscot, Kennebec, Dead Rivers.
You don't see that from a cruise ship parked off the coast of Maine for just a few hours.
