Countless islands are scattered along the coast of Maine. A few are easy to reach. Most have no ferry service. Some are just rocks, some are private property, and others are accessible to visitors with their own boats. Only about fifteen islands have ferry service along the entire coastline of Maine. These remote bits of land, stranded far from the mainland, draw photographers with a promise of unusual landscapes. Protected from outsiders, islands are special places with their own private worlds.
Pack your camera gear and head off to capture new images on islands off the coast of Maine. After research, some ferryboat rides, and miles of hiking, I discovered some remote places you’ll want to visit and photograph. You can leave your car behind and ride a ferry out into the Atlantic to find new compositions for your camera. Discover scenic villages, isolated beaches, and authentic fishing harbors filled with lobster boats with the help of issue #096 - Islands Off the Coast of Maine.
