This was insane. I have never seen so many Lupines in such abandon profusion. It was Lupines gone wild.

This was on ‘Great Cranberry Island’, in Maine, off ‘Acadia’, on June 27, 2017 — the 3rd day of our 8th trip to Acadia. This was my first time to Cranberry; having visited Acadia’s Isle au Haut in September 2015.

Contrary to what some claim the Lupine is NOT Maine’s state flower. Maine’s state flower, true to what can be a confusing state, is actually NOT a flower, it is the White Pine Cone. Go figure!

End of June probably is the right time for Lupines though I did not see Lupines in such volume on the mainland. Actually I didn’t see that many. So, it was interesting. I wanted to talk to some folks about it, but did not get the chance. Maybe on our next visit to Acadia in September.

Bar Harbor & Bar Island, Acadia Through The Superzoom Lens Of A Nikon P900.

by Anura Guruge


These were all taken from the balcony of our room at the ‘Wonder View Inn‘, Bar Harbor during our June 2529, 2017 visit, our 8th to Acadia in the last 3 years.

For the first time in my life, that I can remember, I travelled with 3 cameras: my Full-Frame Sony a7 II, my APS-C Sony a6500 and my Superzoon Nikon P900.

I took 99.9% of the 1,000+ pictures I shot with my two Sonys and you can find some of those pictures here.

Though I did take the Nikon with me in the van it appears I only used it from the balcony of our hotel room.

So here are some superzoom pictures taken with the Nikon P900.

It rained hard this morning till close to noon. When it stopped I went out with the camera. I like taking pictures of water droplets on flowers and leaves. Today was a good day for that.
