Introduction

The photographs in this gallery were taken along the coast of Maine in July 1995. The primary sites visited were Acadia National Park, most of which lies on Mount Desert Island, and Machias Seal Island which lies near the northeastern tip of Maine. This small island (which is actually managed by Canadian Park Service, though also claimed by the U.S.) houses the largest Atlantic Puffin colony in the U.S. The map below shows the locations in which the photographs were taken. All photographs were taken with a Nikon 6006 and various Nikkor lenses.
