09.02.2018 Sunrise on the Rocks

I have never heard a specific name for this part of the Acadia shoreline.  Thunder Hole is to the left and Otter Cliffs to the right with a few other named points of interest within those boundaries. I call this spot Otter Rocks but someday may find that there is an actual moniker that accompanies it.

Anyway, This is the first of three days in a row here with similar skies as I mentioned yesterday.  The foreground will be different though.

The staining really got my attention here and I think that makes the image unique as the rocks are usually the foreground interest. They still matter, but the stain colors work, I think.

  1. This photo is really lovely. I see muted blue pink and, gray in the main image and then it is repeated in the rocks. I think this is unusual. Nice find. Steve, I think you are most observant of the environment and that is what makes you an exceptional photographer.

    I’m tempted to say this is a great “pair” of photos. I really like it as is, but I could see cropping off the rocks just above the clump of foliage on the right, which would emphasize the rocks picking up the pink of the sunrise. Then, if you cropped just below the sun and the horizon, you have the pink streak as an implicit sunrise, and the rocks and staining take on a more prominent role.

    It’s rare, I think, to have a photo so filled with riches there are multiple ways to present it. Lucky you!

    I really like the colors in this photo, both in the sky and on the rocks. Very peaceful scene.

    • Thanks, Todd. As I mentioned above, the colors, especially in the foreground, came as a little bit of a surprise. In the dim light I could see the brownish rust color but the others were not as bright.


  4. Any idea concerning the nature of the staining?

  6. I agree with you: the foreground staining makes this an unusual sunrise view. You may indeed be the only person ever to have made a photograph like this from that spot.
