Deer Isle Archipelago
The Deer Isle Archipelago offers the largest number of public-access islands and some of the best paddling on the Maine coast. The choices are often overwhelming— and the boat traffic and island use can be as well. The islands in this area are rounded and cracked granite topped with spruce trees; there are even meadows of wildflowers on the larger ones, like Harbor Island. Sea roses dot many of the shores. The “talking stone” beaches are a study in subtle hues and textures. The islands are more or less clustered, and all are within a reasonable day of paddling round trip from Stonington or Webb Cove.

Des bateaux, des kayaks, un mer tranquille, quoi de plus beau pour les sportifs. Une jolie scène marine avec un beau boisé tout au fond. Bien vu d'avoir inclus les rochers en avant-plan.
Félicitations!... et toutes mes amitiés,

Ah! You captured your fellow kayakers while paddling!
Well the scenery is very fine and evocative and the boats and kayaks were just what one needed to make fine focal points. I seems shot at dusk and I love the soft colours here.
A nice piece from the log of your cruising.

This is a great shot taking a great time of day. The blue of the water is complimented by the blue sky. The boats add great points of interest for the shot. The lighting and colors are fine and the photo has fine sharpness.
