New photo project: Boats in the Snow

Here's an old boat that appears to be permantly parked on Route 1 in Searsport, ME. I'll get a shot of this in the winter too.

Here’s an old boat that appears to be permantly parked on Route 1 in Searsport, ME. I’ll get a shot of this in the winter too.

I picked up a new phone this summer and it’s loaded with all kinds of camera gadgets.

Hate the phone. Love the camera.

The last couple of years Mark in Maine has produced a couple of locally focused photo projects including “Backroad Country Churches of Maine” and the “Bangor Photo Tour.” Here’s my plan for a 2014-15 photo project: The Maine Winter Fleet.

I will use my new camera/phone to photograph dry docked lobster boats, grounded sloops and other permanently parked large, sea-going craft. It should make for some good stuff.

The photo project will combine Maine’s proud boating tradition with its legendary winter beauty. Plus, I’ve survived two Maine winters now, it’s when I’m here, so why not embrace the cold, snow and ice and get some good pictures?

I just hope my camera/phone survives the winter.

    Hi Mark, That is a great idea and there should be many old boats around. So many wood boats have been abandoned over the years because it just costs too much to restore them. And then the upkeep is pretty expensive also. The one in your photo looks salvageable if the mast is still around. But a nice sleek fiberglass boat would probably be a better deal for a sailor. John
