Sailing Penobscot Bay

October 04, 2021  •  3 Comments

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.

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

Hello Adin, that is a memorial tower on Mount Battie built in memory of Camden residents who served "in the World War 1914-1918." It's built as a replica of a mysterious tower in Newport, Rhode Island.

These are so beautiful! What a wonderful day that must have been! I’m going to guess that your friends will treasure these photos of themselves on their boat.

I miss sailing! And I miss your photography! Going to try to catch up...
