The Shore-lands of New England–especially north of Boston–are a unique environment. These lands have more in common with the Maritime Provinces of Canada than they do with the more southerly shores of the Eastern United States. The sandy coast further south gives way to the rocky, once glaciated, shores of the northern lands. The climate here is more severe; winters are snowy and quite cold and even July will find temperatures in the low 60’s (upper 10’s Celsius) when the wind blows on shore while temperatures just a few miles inland may be in the mid to upper 80’s (30 C). The light here is definitely northern–frequently changing from foggy to clear and back again. Most of my photos are taken along the Maine coast and reflect the climate and temperament of the land and people native to it.
