Friends have a sailboat in Rockland, Maine and they invited me out to sail on Penobscot Bay for the day.
Morning started with sunrise from Mount Battie in the Camden Hills State Park.
The sun is rising over the mountains of Acadia National Park and Camden Harbor is on the right.
Camden Harbor in the foreground and the glint of Owl's Head Light in the distance.
All aboard in Rockland Harbor.

For the black and white images, I used an Ilford HP 5 Plus "film recipe" from Ritchie Roesch as a starting point with the Fuji X-E3. Thanks to Mr. Roesch
As another fundraiser for the Hamlin Library, we have produced a 2021 calendar with photos of the cars. The calendar includes 12 all new photos of the front of cars in the Bahre collection from 1910 - 1953. Mecum Car Auctions has provided support for the production of this calendar. Calendars will be available at the Founder's Day event this Saturday, July 17 and later through the library and other places. Contact the Hamlin Library to get your copy. 207-743-2980 [email protected]
What do you think? If you cannot acquire a calendar, please contact me.
This event is back for 2021 and here is the poster!
If you can't read it in the small size, the car is a 1930 Packard 745 Convertible Sedan by Dietrich. Here is a look behind the scenes at the photo session last November.

With the polarizing filter.
As you can see, we tried a few different settings.
Taken at the "wrong" angle, and this long car looks very short.
With the light disappearing, the car heads off into the sunset. On the other side of the gate in the background are the buildings where the cars are stored. This Saturday cars will be on display inside (and outside, weather permitting) those buildings.
Here is the driver's seat of this car.
A promotional banner announcing the event will be on display in town. Here is the car photograph on the banner.
This 1947 Delahaye 135-M Roadster by Figoni & Falaschi was the subject of the 2014 poster.
There is another fundraiser as part of this event and I'll explain that in the next post.

Now that it is officially spring, I have waited long enough to show snowy winter pictures.
