The weather man called for cloudy skies all day. I even checked the radar at 4:15 a.m. right before I left the house… yep, cloudy and dull, cloudy and dull. Boy did he get it wrong this time!
I must have visited and photographed Otter Cliffs and Boulder Beach in Acadia National Park at least 25 times, and although I have been lucky enough on several occasions to get a decent sky, nothing compares the the way the sky lit up on this most recent morning.
Where’s the color you ask? I’m working on it. The sunrise was so colorful and vibrant that I will probably have to tone it down a bit it before I present it. It was that good. Epic.
Here’s a not-so-photographed view of Otter Cliffs from Boulder Beach. I love the rocks and shapes that can be found tucked in against the side of the beach here, and as you look along the cove toward Otter Cliffs, the jagged rocks and classic Maine pine tree shapes absolutely steal the show.
