    Butterfly at Botanical Gardens

    The Schoolhouse Gallery is pleased to feature a metal print (12″ x 12″) of Denise Lilly’s “Butterfly at Botanical Gardens.” The print is on exhibit and for sale at our gallery this spring.

    Denise Lilly began photographing nature as a child, capturing images in her own backyard or visiting Maine’s ample state parks with her family. Over the years, she’s continued to hone her self-taught photography skills while capturing images in the Northwest and Northeast. While nature photography is her primary photographic interest, she also dabbles in portrait and product photography. (See more of her work on her website.)

    Lilly’s “Butterfly at Botanical Gardens” was taken at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay. While she lived in Kingfield, Lilly worked at the Schoolhouse gallery with John and Cindy. She now resides near the coast in Topsham, Maine.

    Nature Photography Image of the Month

    Quill Hill is on the RT 16 between Stratton and Rangeley about 11 miles from Stratton.  Adrian Brochu has constructed a road, open to the public, to the top, where he has cleared an overlook with a 360 degree view of the High Peaks of Maine.   If you have not visited, it is a sight not to be missed!  This photo was made on a hazy evening after sun set.  Photographed with a telephoto lens, it is a small slice of the dramatic view of the High Peaks of Western Maine.
