On our way down to Bar Harbor from the summit of Cadillac, we made a short detour to Bubble Pond. I had visited here a few weeks ago in the late morning, and was curious to see how it looked at the end of the day. Lori, Sam and Jack hadn’t been to this pond before, so I wanted to show them one of the more peaceful scenes available right off route 233.
As we made our way from the parking lot to the edge of the pond, we could see spectacular highlights reflecting off the water through the trees. We hurried down to the water’s edge, and we were treated to this beautifully tranquil scene. As the setting sun bathed the opposite hillside in an incredible golden glow, the shadow of Pemetic Mountain to our right slowly reached across the pond. This image was made at about 7:00pm, and we had the place to ourselves… a nice part of the world to share.
