August 2011: Landscapes of Maine
A recent trip to Lobster Lake and Two Lights State Park in Maine exposed some fascinating rock formations. North of Greenville and Moosehead Lake, Lobster Lake can be found at the confluence of Lobster Stream and the Penobscot River West Branch. The lake is said to resemble the shape of a lobster claw when viewed from the sky and is mentioned in Henry David Thoreau's Maine Woods as being named after the fresh water lobster or crayfish that thrive in its waters. The shores of Lobster Lake and the Atlantic Ocean display rock outcrops so marvelously pushed and pulled, heated and cooled, stacked and slipped. A deep appreciation of the long and tortured history of the earth is evident.
Inspiration comes from the world around us; color, texture, pattern- all components of the ever changing landscape. The camera captures these moments for further reflection. This blog will feature monthly musings centered on the landscape.
