Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park


I love to be on top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia during the fall. The summit is ablaze with color – the low growing bushes turn bright shades of yellow – and the distinctive red ground cover makes for a very striking scene. Thick clouds rolled over the mountain top on what was a cool and breezy morning, and I was totally mesmerized by the distant views of the Porcupine Islands in Frenchman Bay. The expansive view was perfectly showcased by the rugged and weathered granite slopes of Cadillac, and I had a grand time composing photographs. A fast moving storm front had just swept over the mountain, and although first light was seriously dampened by the leftover clouds, a saturated and lush autumn early morning landscape was left behind… absolutely perfect!

      Yeah… I’ve been up on Cadillac in all sorts of weather, and although I didn’t get the spectacular sunrise I was hoping for, the sun did peek out for a few minutes to light up the landscape. More to come 🙂

I'd love to hear from you...
