Looking Out to the Bay

Looking Out to the Bay

Camden, Maine

This is from Mt. Battie, looking out to Penobscot Bay.

This photo and two others I took today, have an "Eric Hopkins" feel to them. Hopkins is a wonderful Maine arisit who paints many of the islands in this archipelago in similar bright blues and greens. His paintings are inspired by flying over them. Being on top of Mt. Battie, "where the mountains meet the sea," is as close as one can get to that perspective while remaining on the ground.

I have been playing with a new setting on the camera, "P", and adding or subtracting (shutter speed?). I haven't got a clue what it means or is all about, but I am interested in the effect. It seems to work well for images where I need more or less light (whether moon or bright day). I see that it looses some sharpness but the colors seem richer (though I lightened today's photos after it was downloaded).
