08.08.2013 Cooksey Drive from Ocean Drive, Acadia N.P.

The light colored mass on the land there is a large house, maybe considered a summer cottage, on Mount Desert Island which is where the majority of Acadia National Park is located along the Maine coast.Β  I had stopped on the Park Loop Road, Ocean Drive, to get an image of the house when the sky became a little dramatic along with some lovely color in the ocean.Β  The house grew less interesting.Cooksey-Drive-060713-1024FB

    Now that is seriously impressive, with or without the house. The light on the water is magical.

    At first I was captivated by the sky but more and more the quality of the water was what held my attention. Then the texture and colour of the green trees in the foreground seemed just right An exceptional landscape/seascape?

    There’s just a lot going on in this one, isn’t there? I like the texture of the sky first, and then the eye is drawn to the water, which is a color that surely there isn’t a name for—–silver/green/gray/pewter?? Back to the shoreline, which has more great texture, then you see that the waterline has dropped a bit…….the residence in the background, and then back to the trees framed in the foreground. It all blends wonderfully……..like a delicious slice of layer cake. But not nearly as tasty (phew—-dirt!) Very nice and peaceful shot.

    • Now that is really critiquing an image, O’Diva. Corner to corner and everything in between. I am glad you found so much to like.
      So I guess you’re not a member of some dirt eating community. I prefer layer cake too. πŸ™‚

    Eh – what house? πŸ™‚ Very dramatic image Steve – you are right, the house doesn’t matter so much anymore. I love the detail in the green foliage in the foreground. A nicely composed shot with the curving coastline.
