Ahhh, Bangor! I went to UMO! Go Black Bears!! Great capture! I have NIK....what oil painting filter did you use? Love it!!

Thanks so much, Shelly! I used Nik filters and another filter from a new editor called Smart Photo Editor, a stand alone editor. And, yes, go Black Bears! Very good at ice hockey, and academics! I went there for a couple of semesters, then to the U of M Bangor (which no longer exists as such), then years later finished my great academic career at NMSU! (New Mexico State). LOL! I went to both Bangor and Brewer High Schools so Acadia and the coast were really stomping grounds for all of us kids! A more beautiful state there can not be found (NM is very close in different ways). But you know those New England winters!

Thanks, Patricia, as well! Oh, I do hope you get back to Acadia soon. I have been lucky enough to spend several days along the coast during the past two Octobers, much of it in Acadia. Still feels like home to me!
