fragments of america: portland headlights and cape elizabeth in rain and mist

Another set from the closet of neglected photos. These were captured at Portland Headlights and Cape Elizabeth in Maine a day in May 2011. The rain poured down without mercy during the day these photos were taken. And I had no raincoat. It was a strange feeling of presence being soaked in cold rain, capturing photos, feeling the smell of the sea, listening to the foghorns, being almost completely happy: in the moment.

    Karen, so glad to hear that I managed to capture a favourite place of yours in a way that does justice to the place – thank you!

    Peter, there are far too many photos in the closet of unsorted pics.

    The hardest part this day was to keep the lens free from rain. The wind made it almost impossible. so most photos from this day are partially blurred.

    It would have been a waist if that picture of the lighthouse above the rocks would have stayed in that closet. So much more beautiful and interesting coastline than the sand beaches of the Dutch west coast, that are only 10 minutes away but I don’t really care about.
    If there is more in that closet, please let us know.
