Another glorious morning on Saturday in Acadia. In my quest to be in the right place at the right time when conditions come together for an exceptional sunrise in a pretty location, I spent a very enjoyable couple of hours wandering the coastline along the Loop Road near the cliffs at Otter Point. Sunny and clear, unfortunately the elusive dramatic cloud-infused sunrise did not materialize. I wasn’t complaining though.
After shooting at Boulder Beach, with camera in hand I took a quiet walk along the Ocean Path toward the top of Otter Cliffs. Incredibly peaceful and solitary, my walk along the path offered impressive views of the Atlantic Ocean, along with pockets of dappled light reaching in between the trees to shine on the groundcover enjoying the early spring. The image below is from that walk, moving the camera vertically while the shutter was open to create an impressionistic blur.
As we move into spring and summer, the sun starts to rise in Maine at a very early hour. Saturday’s scheduled sunrise was at 5:24am, which means an even earlier departure from home to get where I am going to catch the pre-dawn light. Below is part of my reward for getting up early 🙂
