And a Happy New Year . . .

Instead of resolutions, goals, diet tips, or our expected writing and publication schedules for 2014, this New Year’s Day, we, along with relatives and readers who sent us their photographs, are sharing some pictures of the many “Maines” we know and love.

Like Lea, Kate is very fond of taking "foggy" pictures, like this one of the nubble on Bailey Island

Barb: Instead of a photo, one my my favorite videos. A time lapse of Boothbay Harbor during the Nemo storm last year. That flash in the middle of the video is a tree taking out the transformer next to our house.

John: Beth and I have become photo junkies and each own Canon digital rebels. Here are three shots that strike me as ‘Maine’

This Bittern, a reclusive member of the heron family has spent time in our back yard the past two summers. He's finding something tasty, that's for certain.

This is one of those get lucky shots. Check out the silver saddlebag.

Proof of a multiple shooting at West Quoddy. Daughter Sara shooting husband Russ Bernie while Beth shoots a Sundew and I shoot everyone. If you've never visited West Quiddy State Park, you're missing a wonderful bit of Maine.

    Wonderful photos, and an amazing video. One of my hopes for 2014 is a several-days-long visit to Maine … our “neighbor.” — Beth in Vermont

    You’ll be welcome, Beth! Happy New Year!

    Truly enjoyed these photos. I take a lot of photos myself plus paint and a few of them gave me inspiration for a watercolor or an acrylic one of these snowy days when I am stuck at home with a foot or two of snow here is Massachusetts.
    Thank you for the lovely shots of Maine; one of our favorite places to visit.

    Cynthia
