Photo project: This week in Harpswell

Have you enjoyed Harpswell’s scenic wonders? Yes! Have you ever been inspired to reach for a camera or phone to capture a moment of Harpswell beauty — a sunset, a dewdrop, a smile, or the majestic arc of forest giant? Most likely. If you’re like most of us, you’re eager to share those golden moments.

The land trust will collect photos in a year-long series called “This Week in Harpswell” with a week selected in each of the four seasons. Put on your snowshoes or sunscreen, as the season dictates, and take to the trails and shoreline with your camera. All ages and experience levels are invited to participate!

How to get involved:

  1. Take photos in Harpswell during one or more of the four weeks of the project. The project is finished in 2020, but we might continue it in the future. We love photos of our trails and preserves, but all Harpswell photos are welcome! Subject matter is up to you. We love photos of Harpswell scenery, people and pets enjoying the outdoors, historic landmarks, the fishing industry and more!
  2. Share your photos by emailing them to photos@hhltmaine.org or sending a link to an online album. Please send high resolution files. In the email, please tell us the name of the photographer and the date and location of the photo.
  3. We also encourage you to post your photos on Facebook or Instagram with the #thisweekinharpswell hashtag.
