Milkyway, by Tate Yoder of Penobscot.
Windswept, East Blue Hill
“Curtis Cove has always been a place for exploration. It seems like every time I go, the tides, seasons, and weather work together to create a different landscape for me to see and explore. Knowing that the Milky Way was going to be visible from this beach during the late spring, I wanted to see if I could capture a scene that included the Milky Way rising over the Windswept property. When I arrived that night, some of my friends were already down there listening to the waves and looking at the stars. So, naturally, I asked them to stand for 30 seconds while I captured a scene of them taking in the beautiful views. Even though this shot was unplanned, I think it perfectly captures the essence of what I enjoy doing the most – exploring and viewing the beautiful Maine landscapes with friends and family.”
