I visited Pineland Farms this past weekend and I must say their flower garden has a profusion of blooms. Every where you turn there are splashes of color.

As you can see I tried isolating single or small groups of blossoms. For anyone who has never been there it’s worth the visit and a good place to practice your flower and close-up photography. I would say the garden area is at least an acre or more in size and the best part, it’s free to get in.

Obviously these aren’t wildflowers and usually I try to keep photos I post more on the wild side but I had to show these and let folks know about the photo oppurtunities that are available in the area.

This baby seal was on Willard Beach in Portland on Saturday and we almost walked into it before spotting it. ┬áThe mother wasn’t around but hopefully it wasn’t abandoned. The weather wasn’t very sunny so there weren’t too many people wandering about┬áso the little guy wasn’t being harrassed and it seemed like all he wanted to do was nap. It was tough getting a photo with the eyes open and all I had with me was my point and shoot camera.
