Landscape Favorites

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.

Grand Manan PO Door

Built in 1938 on Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, Canada, when post offices were much more  important. Note the special door that used to be just for telegraphs. Now the post office is a gift shop.

Swallowtail Light Door

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.

Grand Manan

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.

My list of birds seen out of the expected species: Sherry’s Manan count

The trip included seeing parts of the Island, such as Dark Harbor where they farm kelp and fish.

One of the days was a pelagic trip to see birds and whales.
