Summer Moon

I’ve been a bit remiss in finalizing my photographs from the summer for a variety of reasons. Being busy is certainly a big factor, but I’m also trying to gain my temporal separation between the taking of photographs and the evaluation of them. I have found that I can evaluate my own photographs more objectively with a bit of distance from the experience of creation.

In June we had our first trip Down East and camped up in Cobscook Bay State Park. It is a very beautiful area and we’ll definitely be returning. Conveniently we were camping at the time of the full moon, so I was able to capture the rising full moon from a new Maine location. I’ve named this full moon the Summer Moon, the name the Passamaquoddy used for the June full moon (that area of what is now Maine was originally Passamaquoddy land).

Please let me know what you think of this group, as always, and you can find my full moon series on my website, too!
