Bailey Island, Maine

Much of the Maine coast is made up of formerly sedimentary rock that has undergone metamorphic transformation deep in the earth and then thrust up into the light of day.  Emerging from their tempestuous beginnings, these rocks have been polished by glaciers and weathered by wind and sea.  Constantly bathed by ocean waves, these rocks are the canvas upon which the earth’s fiery past is written, exposed in the multitude of colors endemic to the trapped minerals in the surrounding rock.
