My name is Peter Ralston.

I am a photographer. I live in Maine, USA. You can also find me here. I am a Cowbird citizen. I’ve told 95 stories. I joined Cowbird on February 12, 2012.

I first came to Maine in 1978 and fell in love with the coast and islands. I co-founded Maine's Island Institute in 1983.

My family and I live mid-coast, on the western shore of Penobscot Bay, and I spend as much time as I can photographing or printing my images. Or being with family.

Anyway, for more of the stories behind my images, visit the "Print of the Week" series at Or come see us if you get to Maine. There's always time for a story or two.
