Default The Marginal Way

The Village of Ogunquit, Maine, has a paved path that winds it's way along the rocky coast.
About 1-1/2 miles long it starts in Perkins Cove and you can walk to the main beach. There are about 15-20 benches along the way-in July you can't find an empty one anywhere. In early December you don't have that problem. Taken mid afternoon on Saturday, 12-11-11. Ist DS using DA 55-300. Resizing to 16 x 9 format, ISO 200.

I've never seen this walkway so quiet and peaceful -- usually it's jam-packed. This is a very appealing image.

Glad to see that someone else has been there. Really peaceful and quiet this time of year-and no snow yet as a bonus.

Love the picture. I've only been in Maine once many years ago, but think your walk would be a place I'd like.

Very nice late afternoon light. With three wreaths, the only thing this scene lacks is a modest blanket of snow, but we all know we can't control the weather!

Now that is a great shot at marginal way. Love the solitary bench and great ocean view. In summer this place is buzzing with tourists.

Nubble light is a great sight when it is in its seasonal dress. Thanks for showing it to us. I think that they put Christmas lights up in December that outline the buildings and it makes a nice night shot.

They light up the lighthouse the Saturday after Thanksgiving and stays lit until New Years. I'm sure the new K-5 could do a great job with it's low light capability.

Love the lighthouse! Thanks for the reminder, I really need to finish processing and putting together the album for our trip last month to Pt. Reyes and their lighthouse. It's so totally different than yours.
