Lucky to have Acadia National Park on our doorstep, we try to take advantage of it’s proximity as often as we can. The images in this post are from a late summer day trip to Sand Beach… it is nice to be able to jump in the car and be in a place so beautiful within an hour.
As a kid, Sam always loved coming to Sand Beach, and Jack is no different. They both love building and shaping how the water flows from the “river” that forms in the shadow of the Beehive and leads to the ocean. Sometimes after a heavy rain the water can flow really fast, making for an exciting and fun place to play and explore. Jack had a ball racing the water, trying to dam the river with sand… an architecturally hopeless task, but an awesome way to spend the evening. And then there is just being there and enjoying the evening as Lori and Sam are doing in the image above.
The image below is another experiment where I move the camera to create an abstract of what is often a fairly recognizable scene. I like how the movement of the camera blends the different elements and how the colors and light mesh together… all while the source of the composition still remains quite obvious.
