[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Driving along Maine's fabled Route 1, it's hard to find places that are **not** matter-of-factly lovely.

This was taken while passing through the town of Sullivan, in the Schoodic Foothills of Downeast Maine, not far from Acadia National Park. On the geological side, granite is the bedrock of the Schoodic Peninsula and accounts for the crests and valleys that lend a rugged character to the topography of the region. For more information on this, you may find the National Park Service's Geology Fieldnotes to be instructive.

Did I mention this was taken while "passing through?" Positioned carefully close to the window of my father's van, to be precise. PP was cropping and the Sharpen (Smart Redux) plug-in for The Gimp. One final, mild pass of USM, as well.

Hello Jim! Excellent landscape. Excellent composition. Cheers!

These shorelines in Maine are so rich and full of nature. Whenever I left Ohio as a Boy Scout on expedition to Quebec we went through NEngland. You present a sot of black tablet for the imagination which knows the "things" that live there.
