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.
