Macro Sunday

Hello I heart macro Sunday, I have not forgotten about you. I fact on my recent trip to Camden, Maine I was taking multiple macro shots with you in mind.

This is my macro shot for the week, it was taken on Curtis Island in Camden harbor that is home to an old light house that we visited. In fact the misty picture below is that lighthouse.

There was so much color going on here, it was such a moist day so all the colors of the shells and stones were extra vibrant.

We raced up to the top of what must be the high point in Camden, Maine to catch the sunset. This photo was taken from the top of the stone tower in Camden Hills State Park. Our hostess Kathryn showed us so many wonderful locations to paint and photograph every day.

This picture is part of our group painting on the first day, this was a short boat ride from the lakeside cottage where we stayed.

I am so glad we braved the fog and went out to this island in Camden Harbor, we could not see more than a foot in front of the boat. I developed a new eye for all kinds of light on this trip, thanks to our wonderful teacher Caroline.

This is a shot of Camden Harbor on the first day, look at those great reflections in the water. Now I just have to figure out how to put that on a bead.

One thing I realized from this holiday was that I miss being outside everyday. My little bead business tends to keep me confined to my studio or parked in front of the computer.

I really need to make an effort to get outside more, only way that will happen is to put it in the schedule.

Just a reminder how i love macro sunday works. Just click on the i heart macro logo below and it will take you directly to Studio Waterstone where you can check out other macro shots of the week.

Don't forget to check out Lori's bags in her etsy shop while you are there.

Wonderful images, especially the last one with the boat reflecting in the water. But the one through the window is quite moody. Lovely post.

Love the colours in the first one...and even though it isn't a macro shot...I love the one through the window. Very atmospheric!

Ooooh, your trip to Maine looks wonderful! I need to schedule time to be outside, too. Opening the window in my studio while I'm on the torch just isn't enough.

Wonderful photos. I especially like the one looking through the window at the lighthouse, although the sunset is pretty cool too. Sounds like a fantastic experience.
