A fleeting moment…

Standard

12-8-13 Acadia3

Morning light moves fast. Right before I made the image above, I was shooting in the opposite direction, focusing on trying to create a composition that showcased the rugged, granite ledges along the Acadia National Park Loop Road. As I was doing so, I remembered to pause and take a quick glance over my shoulder to see if the high clouds rushing in ahead of an approaching front had caught any color… and as you can see… they had.

I love how the granite in Acadia takes on the color of the pre-dawn light. On different occasions I’ve seen it glow anywhere from red to orange to pink… sometimes it’s subtle, and sometimes it’s much more than that. On this particular morning, the sunrise over the ocean was mostly a yellow event, but for one fleeting moment overhead, we were treated to a palette of soft, pink light – only for a moment mind you – and as you can see, once again the Acadia granite didn’t disappoint.

  1. I love how you got Great Head and a little of Schoodic in the photo. That is what I love about photographing Acadia… we were together on this morning and we both came away with our own interpretations. Thanks for sharing.

      Chad… thanks. Yeah, there’s so much to see in Acadia – big and small – and I too love how personal and interpretive? photography can be.

I'd love to hear from you...
