This was the original destination for our visit to Portland, ME this past weekend.  I had seen a few images of this location online, and finally had an opportunity to go up there and get a shot of my own.  Along with fellow photographers Bob Lussier and Mike Tully of course.

These three shacks are on Fisherman’s Point and can be seen and photographed from Willard Beach in South Portland.  We were fortunate to get some really nice color in the sky just before sunrise, and with the tide just starting to recede, the ocean added a nice foreground element as it held the reflection of the sky.  I’m looking forward to getting back here in the spring to get a different perspective on this wonderful spot.





This is the fish shack at the Maritime Gloucester Center.  There’s so much to explore there, and it also boasts views of the U.S. Coast Guard Station, Ten Pound Island, Rocky Neck, the State Fish Pier, as well as a variety of ships around Gloucester Harbor.  On this day, I was focusing mostly on finding things right on the main dock to shoot as opposed to the wide angle views of the surrounding area (although I’ll certainly be back to do that as well). This shack was full of character and detail, and I thought the bouys hanging on the wall made a nice focal point for the shot.
