Seagulls Got It Made in Maine

The scenery is made for relaxing. Just some images to cool your spirit.

I was a guest of Carolyn and Michael, from Carolyn’s Shade Gardens, to Cliff Island off the scenic coast of Maine.

It was a most enjoyable time, and I am very grateful for the opportunity to visit such a beautiful place. In fact, we visited many places, most of which I will show on Garden Walk Garden Talk. I want to thank both Carolyn and Michael for their hospitality. You will see the many places that Carolyn and I went during the eight days of my visit but…

I just got back in town and have mounds of work that I must get to this coming week.

I hope you are enjoying the Chanticleer series on GWGT, and I will be getting back to posting and visiting shortly. It is a twelve part series and the post Chanticleer Six in Twelve The Ruins is halfway through the series.

The gulls were plentiful, and I was surprised at how many varieties of gulls were present. Many other sea birds were photographed, but I thought I would do a post on gulls in their natural habitat, where food is plentiful and skies are blue.

The cliffs make good nesting grounds for the coastal birds.

The landscape is very colorful and I will show the varying textures of this landscape coming up.

The contrast is really wonderful and visually exciting.

Most days, the skies were vibrant blue, and cloudless, but for the day above, the white clouds decorated the sky.

The blue skies gave way to deep, colorful sunsets. Stay tuned, much to come.

    • Hi Carolyn! I was to your site four times today to copy the link and it did not post on the blog post. I think I got it now. I also left your link at Brain’s site. Remember, he is the one in the Bay of Fundy. I told him, since he is pretty close, that maybe next year we will take a boat ride to see him and his beautiful area.

    • What a coincidence you are from this area! It was still hot in Maine, but each evening was very comfortable. That is what was different from here in NY.

  1. Looks like a wonderful place to find relaxation and inspiration! I am looking forward to reading all your posts but I am on the road for another week and have not had the opportunity to sit down and spend much time on the blog network. Love all your shots of the seagulls. There are lots of them on the Lake Michigan coast too and I have had fun photographing them. They are so amusing!

  2. Wonderful pictures as always. It’s nice to see the sea for a change 🙂 The picture of the seagull with freshly caught food in its beak is brilliant. They always go by so slow and graceful but I never manage to catch them on camera nonetheless.

    • Crabs are everywhere and the gulls have easy pick’ins. The gull with the crab was actually flying fast and pretty far out in the water. I had on a 300mm lens, so I zoomed in. The gulls here in the Falls are pretty slow and lazy. They beg for food from tourists or outright steal it.

  3. Gorgeous photos! I can imagine you had a fabulous time, sharing such spectacular scenery with another garden blogger. The public landing photo gave me a smile!
