Texture Study: Maine Coastline

March 02, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

A few years ago, my grandson and I had a wonderful adventure traveling through New England and the Canadian Maritimes.  We pulled an old relic of a camper that remained in a continual state of disintegration as we traveled.  Lots of stories and anxiety about that!  But we made it all the way up to the northern tip of Newfoundland where there is an archeological site of a Viking settlement.  It was summer but we encountered icy roads immediately after leaving the overnight ferry to Newfoundland, and then experienced snow towards the northern point.  The highlight of this trip were the icebergs!  I had made this trip several years earlier with my husband and had been disappointed on that trip to not see any then.  Of course, the entire coastline of the Maritimes and New England was spectacular!  Then, somehow, we made it all the way back home with that camper.  In Maine, we purchased fresh lobster from a local man who boiled them for us outdoors in the blustery, wet dusk.  We feasted on those lobsters, and to this day, my grandson will tell you that his favorite food is lobster.

As stated in my previous post, I've been playing with old images and new textures lately.  Here are 3 studies of the same image but with different textures applied to them.  I hope that you like them as much as I do.

If you've been in this part of the world, please share your stories and photos with us.  Those who have not been can dream of visiting this region and hopefully many will make the trek and have a lovely adventure of your own.
