Photo Shoot Along I-295

Today our family had to spend a good part of the day running errands around the greater Portland area. The temperature was in the low 20s but there was only a slight breeze. The sun was shining brighter than it has all winter (well, it seemed so, anyway) and there wasn't a cloud to be found in the sky. In fact, when we went into the Maine Mall food court for lunch, we didn't even take our coats.

These photos aren't thrilling, but they are indicative of the amazingly blue sky and blue water surrounding Portland (which, at this time of the year, is usually a dull grey). Also, some pretty neat frozen falls coming off the rocks along the side of the highway. I actually snapped these while we were driving up I-295 this afternoon (don't worry, my son was driving). :)

Ok, this last one is just some birds in a tree in our yard, but I thought it was a cool picture. Still counts because it WAS the same day.

Happy to hear your son was driving! Love the ice down the rocks. There's a section of Route 1 here in Rockland/Rockport that looks like that most of the winter.

Isn't it beautiful? I never tire of seeing those icy falls.
