Since I missed out on July's 10 on 10 post due to traveling, I thought it would only be appropriate to post images from my trip....And, I am a little rebellious this month, as I am breaking the rules and posting more than 10 images (figure I had to make up for missing July's circle). At the end of June, I traveled to Maine with my husband to celebrate our 10 year anniversary together and to attend a two day photography conference in Harpswell lead by the talented Utah based photographer, Yan Palmer. Although we loved all of Maine and everything it had to offer, I have to be honest and say that Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park stole our hearts with it's rugged terrain and salty fresh ocean air. My husband and I went on several amazing hikes together, went rock climbing, explored quaint fishing towns, and even got up at 4am to watch the first sunlight hit the United States on top of Cadillac Mountain. After sunrise we made our way down to the lobster docks to watch the Lobsterman depart for the day and ended our morning at a hole in the wall diner with cheap coffee, a greasy spoon breakfast and the blissful feeling of contentment that comes after 10 years together... Take a peak at some images from our adventures in Maine. After viewing this post, make sure to go to Breanna Peterson's post to continue the blog circle. Breanna is a photographer based in Kodiak, Alaska with a remarkable gift of photographing the everyday.
And a little bonus material: Here are a few images from my conference in Harpswell, Maine. I spent two days at the lovely Cate Wnek's home with several talented photographers from across the U.S. who came together to share, learn and grow.
