Although sailing was a primary reason for moving to Maine in 1997, I found Maine to be the catalyst that energized my spirit and my artistic life. My camera enables me to capture the extraordinary beauty of Maine's rocky coast, its islands, wildlife, bright blue skies and even the fog. From the deck of our yawl, the "Carol Lyn", I have been able to photograph Maine's remarkable Windjammers and classic yachts as they surge through the open ocean or lay quietly at anchor in small coves and harbors.
Equally inspiring are the colorful fishing villages and lobster boats along the coast. In Rockport, where I live, Aldermere Farm's Belted Galloways, sometimes called the "Oreo Cookie Cows", are another favorite subject. From these images, Amazing Maine by Carol Latta creates note cards and fine art paintings. Please browse my galleries for your keepsakes of "The way life should be".
