03.20.2016 Birch corridor

This is a much photographed scene along the Hemlock Trail in the Great Meadow section of Acadia.  There are several spots through here that afford a look through the birches.

    A pity you didn’t set his address. I’m sure he’d be thrilled to receive a copy of the beautiful image! 🙂

    I certainly smiled at your mention of waiting for the breeze to still. I was out and about yesterday, and the wind across the prairie and ponds was more than a breeze. It was a steady north wind, and it only strengthened as the day went on. It was fun trying to figure out how to cope with it.

    You certainly coped well, here. This is among my favorites of your photos. It’s such an inviting path, and who doesn’t like birches? The way they curve toward the center on both sides only adds to the sense of invitation and anticipation. I’d walk that path in a minute.

  5. You’ve called to mind two poems by Robert Frost: “Birches” and “The Road Not Taken.”

    I don’t think of birches being as curved as the ones you recorded here.

  6. Gorgeous path with those beautiful trees. Looks like a path that just about anyone would want to walk.
