This photograph was made at about 4:30 in the morning. This is one of the eastern most points in the United States. It’s Mainers call it Down East Maine. The bay is called Baileys Mistake and is found in Washington County, Maine. Lubec is the closest town. All along the coast is the fishing villages you imagine when you think of Maine. I was attending a photography workshop with two other photographers. We were staying in one of those big houses found along the coast. Anyway, while everyone else was still sleeping, I was awake making photographs. I grew up on a dairy farm so I was used to getting up early. As a landscape photographer you have to arise early to get dramatic shots like these. By the way this photograph was actually made on film. The following year I bought my first digital camera. I haven’t looked back.
