The Village

Every so often I come across a scene that just begs for a little tilt-shift action.  This was one of those scenes.  What you see is the majority of the small village on Monhegan Island in Maine.  The rest of the island consists mostly of houses, a few inns and restaurants, and a post office and church.  The large building to the right side of the image is the Island Inn, which I believe is the largest inn on the island.  Behind it lies the harbor and Manana Island.  The building with the red trim and pink sign is a store/cafe called Carina, which had the best crabmeat panini I’ve ever had.  Carina is one of the only places that stays open during the winter when the island’s population drops to less than 50 hearty souls.  Not sure I could handle a winter there, but I can’t wait to get back next summer.

    Great shot, Steven. It reminds me of a minature model of a small hamlet…incredible detail!
