I have been itching to get out with the camera again lately, so I decided to visit one of my favorite places and see if I could capture some snow blanketing the famous round rocks below Otter Cliffs. An early start this morning got me here about 45 minutes before the sun was scheduled to crest at 6:36am, and as always, I had the place completely to myself. Though the temperature was certainly chilly, there was little to no wind blowing, and since I was dressed in several layers, the 13F actually felt quite comfortable.
When the morning sun did eventually rise above the horizon, it bathed the granite coastline of Acadia in a beautiful, warm light, and I spent a good three hours shooting here. As I work through my stash from this morning, I will post more from what was a very productive and enjoyable visit. In the meantime, these were the first images I made this morning… pre-dawn at 6:11am (bottom image), and 6:18am (top image) on Sunday, February 13, 2011.
