As promised I’ve started going through my photographs from my week in Maine. I’ll go into more detail once I write an actual summary of my trip, but I will say for most of the week a nor’easter made the weather pretty miserable. For most of the time I had damp, windy, and heavily overcast conditions… difficult shooting. Here are a few quick shots.
Having never been to Acadia National Park (or Maine) before I was pleasantly surprised to see such rugged shorelines on the East Coast, much different than the New Jersey coast I grew up with. For this image I chose to go with black and white to emphasize the mood and textures of the scene.
The road that runs through Mt. Desert Island (where Acadia national park is located) is just beautiful. Here I got a lucky 20 minutes of sun so I stopped the car and raced to get this shot before becoming road pizza.
Here is a night view of one of the popular streets in Bar Harbor (the biggest small town on the island). As you can see it’s a very picturesque place to visit… just make sure to eat before 9:00 since things close a little earlier than in the city. I’m sure in the summer this street is busy, luckily I missed the tourist season.
I’ll end with this image of the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse. This is definitely a popular and classic spot to take images, and I couldn’t imagine a more scenic spot for a lighthouse. Ironically, one of the few times I actually wanted some clouds and I get a perfectly clear evening. Oh well, I’ll put up a more in-depth summary of my trip (with more photos) once I’ve gone through everything.
