Most people who visit Maine spend most if not all their time along the spectacular coastline, among the prettiest places in the country. But having done that several times, including one of the best jobs I've ever had (scouting all the lighthouses there for a beer commercial in the late 70's), I decided to start a photo project called "Uncoastal Maine." This part of Maine is most representative of the facts that it is the most forested state in America, the 2nd most rural, has 32000 miles of rivers and streams and 6000 lakes and ponds. However, logging companies own 95% of the forested lands and the entire northeast part of the state (in red below) is owned by those companies and is completely inaccessible due to private and gated logging roads.
Unfortunately, 2 issues cut my shooting time (and coverage) from a planned 7 days to 3:
1) Tested positive for Covid in Presque Isle
2) 400 miles of rain from Hurricane Lee
