Yes this would be considered South Western Maine, near the border with NH, if it weren't for the hills on the other side of the lake and being down low you'd be able to see Mt. Washington's outline in the setting sun. There's some hills on the side of the lake this was taken from that offer a view to Mt. Washington, one of these times I have to go up there for a sunset.. or who knows maybe a sunrise as the sun hits Mt. Washington before the valleys below would be a cool shot I think. hmm

There are parts of Maine that go all the way up to the 47th parallel north. Which is actually further north than Montreal and Quebec city. Farthest I've been is Caribou which is up at 46.5 North. I went up to Loring Airforce base which is now decommissioned, but was where they'd fly the B-52s from to bomb Western Russia. Pretty much nothing else up there but pine trees though, well except when Phish would play, then it was a large town

I absolutely love it when I make a file of pure nature in the happening and these qualify, I am happy you saw it and save it.

Also, the sunset/dock is a very well done image that I like a bunch.
Lol - thanks Bob - yes I'm not sure I can pick out Scorpius in the photo but I am certainly impressed with Alan's ability to do so.

I also agree on the sequence, it was a special thing to see and I was lucky to capture it, I watched the mother feed the fledgling three fish and this one I just got lucky with the sequence and the focus, I am planning to print them out and put them in a four picture frame for the wall.

One of the benefits of being an insomniac. Not all the stars were apparent but enough to make an ID. I hope you don't mind my taking liberties with your photo ramcewan.

Great shot here. I still have to pick up the 14mm Lumix and maybe make it my hiking lens.

Alan - you'd be good to have if my GPS ever failed!

Drew881 - thanks, the 14mm is a great lens and has made some of my favorite photos. Although I now have both the 4/3 9-18 and the 14-54 which cover this focal length I still hold onto the 14 because it's so darn small and I have a set of filters for it.

Macbook - thanks I love the loons, especially their vocalizations which are a thing to hear at night.

Those Loon shots have to be the best shots you have ever posted. Absolutely beautiful!
