Experiencing Acadia National Park
A few days ago at Acadia National Park, I explored Mount Desert Island. The Artist in Residence program is sponsored/hosted by The Schoodic Institute, and is on the Schoodic Peninsula, about and hour down east of Mount Desert Island. I enjoy the quiet side of the park, here at Schoodic, but want to fully explore Acadia. I hiked the Jordan Pond, the three mile hike around the pond is wonderful. After stopping for dinner and popovers, I drove south on Route 3/198 and looped around the Eastern Way to scout Upper Hadlock Pond.
I spied the reflection from the road, safely pulled over and spent the next hour enjoying the changing light of dusk. I was attracted to the "heartbeat" of the bare white trunks on the far side of the pond. Using a 300mm Nikon lens for a tight composition to capture warm/cool relationship of the water, the shadows and the sunlit forest. While at the location, a beaver and a loon were curious, and swam and fished nearby.
Enjoyed your pictures posted on Facebook throughout your two Artist Residencies. The beauty of Acadia and its water scenes and powerful breaks onto the rocky shoreline are just incredible.
It LOOKS like you're having the time of life! It definitely shows!!
