Playset in the Snow

Posted on April 23rd by CedarWorks

The world always looks great after we get a big dump of snow, and I had to stop and take this shot as I drove into the office one winter morning… the subtle warmth of the cedar in contrast to the cold white snow was eye-catching.

The Belted Galloways

Posted on April 18th by Doug

While driving through Rockport, home to CedarWorks, you just might find yourself face-to-face with the Belted Galloways at Aldermere Farms. Aldermere Farms is a working farm and one of the world’s leading breeders of Belted Galloway cattle… also known as the “Oreo Cookie Cows” or, as a friend humorously calls them, “Belted Getaways”.

Serendipity Sunrise

Posted on April 18th by Doug

Whenever we have photo shoots to showcase new products, I try to arrive at the set before sunrise in the hope of finding great light. This particular morning, for about 10 minutes, the sky was worth being there for.

Camden at Sunrise

Posted on April 18th by Doug

This is Camden Harbor, the next harbor down from Rockport, the town CedarWorks calls home. This was taken after scrambling up the front of Mt. Batty in the dark (with a headlamp) and then waiting for the sun to start to make it’s appearance. The view from Mt. Batty is spectacular. You may recognize these lines by the poet Edna St. Vincent Millay (who was born in neighboring Rockland, Maine and made her home in Camden for many years) as the first few lines of her poem “Renascence”:

All I could see from where I stood
Was three long mountains and a wood;
I turned and looked another way,
And saw three islands in a bay.
So with my eyes I traced the line
Of the horizon, thin and fine,
Straight around till I was come
Back to where I’d started from;
And all I saw from where I stood
Was three long mountains and a wood.

You can still see that view today exactly as she described it 100 years ago.

Overlooking Megunticook Lake

Posted on April 18th by Doug

This beautiful view is 15 minutes away from our office in Rockport, Maine and is taken from a spot known as Maiden’s Cliff. Hiking the Camden Hills and surrounding hills and mountains is just one of the great things about living and working here… and it just never gets old. On the day this photo was taken, there was no one else up there and so I took my time taking a series of photos, probably more than 30 in all, and then stitched them together in Photoshop to create this larger-than-life panorama. On the way back down, there were blueberries ripe for the picking and I may have helped myself to a few.
