Late Summer Hike

It's been a little over 2 weeks since we last hiked. We were anxious to get into the woods. It was a perfect late summer day with blue sky, gentle breezes and the air sweet with warm pine.

This was our first hike with the new camera. I was so excited and then disappointed as I fought (and lost) with the sun directly overhead to get beautiful shots of my family doing something we love. I gave up and looked elsewhere for pretty photos.

Three of these dragonflies were zipping all over the summit. Kind of baffling, I thought dragonflies belonged to pond ecosystems.

These sunflowers were growing at a farm on the drive to the mountains. If these photos don't say late summer in Maine I don't know what does.

    I'm amazed at your dragonfly shot. They zip around my backyard but I doubt I'd ever be able to get a pic!

    Just emailed my address to you - apologies for the delay.

    That dragonfly shot is spectacular! The background colors accompany his so well.....I would love to be in Maine right now!

    I was thinking that I wanted to do Maine's Big Sur when I found out about it recently, but the plane tickets there are waaaay too high for me to justify it right now.

    Have you ever driven Maine's Big Sur highway? I went to the one on the coast of California in April, and it was amazing!

      Thanks for the compliments on the dragonfly. That was kind of lucky that he/she stopped long enough on the bark for me to take the picture.

      Forgive me for my ignorance (I'm not originally from Maine) but what and where is Maine's Big Sur?
