A cairn with a view…


9-7-13 acadia8 BW

This little guy surely has one of the most impressive views on the east coast. He sits on the South Ridge Trail about half a mile from the summit of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, and he looks out on both Frenchman Bay to the east, and the Blue Hill Bay and the nearby islands to the south and west.

Just me playing with a large aperture and a shallow depth of field as I used my 50mm f1.8 lens on my Canon 5D II 🙂

      There’s something about using this little lens that really does make you think more about composition. No gimmicks like wide-angle or telephoto (gimmicks might not be the right word), but nice and simple.

  1. Reminds me of some megalithic sites in Britain, but in miniature. Here in California our trails over granite are marked mostly with “ducks” — simple stacks of a few stones. I like your little cairns, though.

I'd love to hear from you...
