Some of my favorite old photographs I made in places I love.
As I convert all my RAW files to TIF (my RAW files are disintegrating) I saw these and thought I’d post a small landscape selection. This is the 4th day of exporting to TIF and I am up to the big “World” folder. Tomorrow I go in for minor surgery, a Nissan Fundoplication, wish me luck.
The Swallowtail Lighthouse on Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, Canada photographed in 2012. One viewer asked why is it called Swallowtail. I looked at a map and saw that of Grand Manan; the shape of North Head and Swallowtail point, that the lighthouse is on, resembles the point of a Swallowtail butterflies wing.
In September, 2012 we took a birding tour with Bob Duchesne to Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, Canada. We stayed at the Marathon Inn. It was one of the best vacations of my life.
We started from Bangor, Maine, then next day met up with the small group and took a ferry from Blacks Harbor, New Brunswick, Canada to Grand Manan. A short trip to the marshes then back to the charming hotel.
