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.  

Reflections of Acadia

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.

Do you have any more information on this topic that you can share with us right now? I am writing a paper on this topic at the moment, and I am short of some words. I need my paper to be authentic, so I won't include any rubbish.

My mother wants me to learn a new language, but I can't learn anything new unless you help me out. As I check out our steel garage doors, I hope that you will tell me how I can learn a new language as that will be useful for me.
