New Harbor Maine
Digital Art - Digital Photography
During our trip in April we drove by many small coves and harbors. On our trip to the Pemaquid Point light house, we drove through New Harbor, a delightful harbor and small town. What I found intriguing by the Maine Coast was the dichotomy of life where you will find the hard working lobster fisherman's vessel docked next to the wealthy part-year resident's yacht. Here I captured a lovely sailboat, framed by the mainstay of the area's fisherman....the lobster traps. Lobster fishing is one of the most dangerous professions in the world and yet it contributes a significant amount to the Maine economy. Lobster can be found on every restaurant menu from the smallest to the finest and was truly a delight. This harbor is found on the Mid-coast of Maine which is known for beautiful peninsula's, lobster shacks, and a gorgeous rocky ocean coastline. I took this picture from a working pier piled high with lobster traps. There were no fishermen there at the time, presumably due to them being out at sea for the day.
New Harbor is a small coastal village in the town of Bristol, in Lincoln County, Maine, United States. It is the home of Pemaquid Lighthouse and Fort William Henry.
The town's lobster fisherman and "Back Cove" were featured on an episode of the Discovery Channel's "Sunrise Earth".
New Harbor was also used as a filming location for the 1999 film "Message In a Bottle." with some scenes filmed at Shaw's Wharf In 1922 the silent film "The Seventh Day," starring Richard Barthelmess, was also filmed in New Harbor..............
