Back-Road Beauty

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick    Back-Road Beauty
Back-Road Beauty

Coastal Maine can be beautiful in the Autumn – The fishing village of Five Islands is on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. You can arrive here by boat or it is accessible by a twisting and turning back-road that is full of character. Older homes are nestled into the tree-lined landscape while churches with tall steeples stand boldly giving this area a real sense of community. This old structure had lots of character – The freshly painted door made me take a second look…… One of the many treasure you can find when you get off from the highways and byways!

Leena and I found a really nice church surrounded in Autumn color to photograph - When we turned around we noticed this wonderful back-road across from the church!

Both are wonderful captures Jeff! Looks like that cold weather up there preserves the buildings well.

GREAT FIND & CAPTURE The Building and that beautiful covered drive.
Acadia was the most scenic spot I've ever been in the Fall but would love to see the rest of Northern NE in the Fall.

Fantastic image, Jeff! Excellent storytelling scene, love the fall colors, the weathered building with the green door, and the stop sign is a killer!

Too bad we missed each other, it would have been fun to met you both :-)I loved Maine and hope to spend more time traveling up the coast next visit in the spring. THis is so special, especially since it was hidden away !

Absolutely gorgeous Jeff, both images are wonderful Maine visuals! It looks like you caught Maine at the very best time of autumn season there! The one time my husband and I went they said autumn was late and it was in the low 80's! I found one red tree at the time! :-(
