There is no question Maine is a beautiful state filled with remarkable views — and great opportunities for photographers — from the highest peaks to the beautiful coast. It’s partly why so many want to vacation here, even during the days of COVID, and uproot themselves to resettle in Maine.
When I decided in 2021 to crowdsource photos from our more than 5,100 newsletter subscribers to lead the Daily Monitor newsletter, I knew I would be inundated with incredible sceneries from around the entire state that encapsulate the way of life in Maine.
From people pausing to snap a gorgeous sunset as they embark on a stroll during all seasons of weather to capturing the view from atop some of Maine’s mountains, The Maine Monitor has showcased all parts of the state through what can only be described as a virtual staycation.
This is a small compilation of the hundreds of photos we have published in the newsletter that were among the favorite of the Monitor team and of newsletter subscribers. It’s a reminder of our state’s natural beauty and the opportunity we have each day to explore that beauty.
