Best Seat In The House

I feel very fortunate to have been able to spend a short time in such a beautiful place. This dock was at the house we stayed at and sat at the entrance to a small cove, Orr’s Cove. The best seat in the house wasn’t even in the house. It was right here. Wishing right now I could come home from work and sit on the dock overlooking the bay and watch the boats float back and forth again.

Knowing It Couldn’t Last Forever

I seem to be drawn to oceans and mountains more than anything. Ironically, I live nowhere near either one of them. But it may be best that way. Oceans, though, are on my horizon as I prepare to head to the Maine coast next week.  Heading out to these wonderful locations, I always have in the back of my mind the thought of coming home. It’s always nice to have a place to come home to, yet I get pretty antsy without having a plan for a new destination on the horizon. I don’t know what the future will bring, but I am having a blast exploring and so glad I have the time and energy to do it.

This was processed in Lightroom except for some clean up in Photoshop of dust spots and such. The sun was going down, but I wanted a nice bright image. This was set up +1 2/3 stops to overexpose a little. The highlights were easily tamed back in Lightroom.
