Thank you for the feedback Bob and Kouta. Some pix are better than others and these are among my favorites. This is the famous Maine coastal fog in these pix.

Thanks again!

A coastal fog is nice- especially when you hear a ship horn somewhere hiding out there.

Jennifer,

I had not been on the BBS much last month. I missed this post, but wanted to tell you how gorgeous I found both images. I like the first better, but both are wonderful.
