The Wiscasset, Waterville and Farmington Railway is a 2 ft (610 mm) narrow gauge railway. The line was operated as a for-profit company from 1895 until 1933 between the Maine towns of Wiscasset, Albion, and Winslow, but was abandoned in 1936. Today, about two miles (3.2 km) of the track in the town of Alna has been rebuilt and is operated by the non-profit Wiscasset, Waterville and Farmington Railway Museum as a heritage railroad offering passenger excursion trains and hauling occasional cargo.

The fog at sunrise makes for some great pictures.
My yearly fall foliage road trip has me in Boothbay Harbor Maine at the moment. I was lucky to get the sun at the right angle to catch this picture I have wanted to re-shoot for quite a few years.
A view of Bass Harbor Light rarely seen. Taken from 1200 feet over Bass Harbor Maine.
West Quoddy Head Light, in Quoddy Head State Park, Lubec, Maine, is the easternmost point of the contiguous United States. Since 1808, there has been a lighthouse there to guide ships through the Quoddy Narrows. The current one, with distinctive red-and-white stripes, was built in 1858, and is an active aid to navigation. Photographs and paintings of this lighthouse are frequently reproduced. The 3rd order Fresnel lens is the only 3rd order and one of only eight Fresnel lenses still in use on the Maine Coast.
The light station was added to the National Register of Historic Places as West Quoddy Head Light Station on July 4, 1980.
Since sunset was sorta ‘boring’, I thought I would wait and see how things played out after.
