I spent several exciting days in Maine last week exploring Acadia National Park and some of the surrounding area. Mary Kate went on business up there and invited me to tag along and sight see. Thanks again, Mary Kate!
I’m still going through all of my images from the trip, so I can’t really write an article about it yet. I’ll work on it over the next week or so and add photos to my Maine / Acadia album on Flickr as I finish them. You can take a look there for a preview of what’s coming. For now, here are a couple quick photos.
Cadillac Mountain in Acadia is the highest point on the east coast of the US, and going up to the summit to see “the country’s first sunrise” is popular. When MK, her coworker Ryan, and I got there at about 4:45am, the parking lot was already filling up. This was the view about a half hour before sunrise. If you look at the larger version on Flickr, you can see the lights in Bar Harbor on the near shore.
It turns out that the first sun light hits the US on Cadillac Mountain only in the fall and winter. So we really didn’t see the “first light” – but even so it was a pretty sunrise.
Please be sure to check back for the rest of the story on this absolutely fabulous place. It’s a landscape photographer’s dream and there’s wildlife around there too!
Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Now, go make some photos!
