Reflections of Monhegan Island, Maine

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Cliff George

This very rustic cottage on Monhegan Island shares the islands character... very remote, year round community of hard working lobstering families. This community mixes so well with the artists and tourists in the summer! This cottage window was caught perfectly with the reflection of a neighbors home yet has all the window distractions typical of this fishing community. The lobster claw came from a ten pounder. Deer are a major nuisance to beautiful island gardens, antlers are proudly displayed. The buoys represent the hard work and individualism! A “must visit” for photographers!

Location: Monhegan Island Maine
