Theme Day: Postcard-worthy

Today, August 1, 2011, is theme day across the CDPB(city daily photo blog) community. This is the Monhegan Island Lighthouse. This image is both postcard worthy and ready! The island is located 12 nautical miles off the mainland. And yes, you CAN get there from here. I think we've visited it four times, twice for day trips and twice for extended stays. Elenka and J- bring sketchbooks and paints, while I rely on my trusty Nikons. Want to get away from the zaniness and seemingly non-stop fever of that outside world for a day or a week? This would be a pretty good choice.

  6. Beautiful, Birdman. I have never been there, but relatives used to stay on Monhegan for a week in the summer. If I were there, I would need to borrow a kid to read Blueberries for Sal to.

  7. All of the elements in the photo: boat and lighthouse especially, make this postcard worthy and would be a terrific painting as well.

  9. Absolutely gorgeous, Bird! I think that it looks like the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday craziness. One would hope that the electronics and connectivity would not be possible there either.

  12. Now you done ruined it. The photo of such quality, no sense going to visit. I suppose I would get to smell that salt air tho. Might be worth the trip anyhow. How trips go I would get to see it during a foggy, rainy day.

  18. I can see why you'd like this place, not only for its generic beauty but because every lighthouse needs birds...so what better than a visit from the Birdman?

    It certainly does look like a nice spot to get away from the roar of the greasepaint and the smell of the crowd!

  23. New England islands have a rough peacefulness that is hard to match. Maybe the Orkneys off Scotland. Hard life, slow pace, quiet. Room to think.
