Next day, it was time to drive up to Bar Harbor, Maine. There, an afternoon walk on the shore path turned up a miniature city of cairns. A trio of black birds buzzed the structures as I grabbed this shot.
Heading for a city street to return to the harbor by a different route, I exchanged pleasantries with a hungry squirrel (whose tail was pretty scrawny). I had a wide angle zoom lens on the camera, but the little rodent made no allowance for that, no adjustment of his comfort radius, so I cropped my photo to the equivalent of a moderate telephoto and got this.
The 16-35mm lens (at the long end) was just right for these flowers and leaves catching the sunlight.
Back at the harbor, I enjoyed exploring some dock vantages that gave a somewhat European look.
After sunset, the secondary color effects were nice, if subtle. I love the textures of scudding clouds, water wavelets, and tiered rocks.
Heading part way down the same shore path taken earlier, I found the moon playing with a familiar leaning boulder.
