The sky lit up spectacularly over the cliffs as the sun rose on August 30th, our last day at Acadia N.P.
Yup. That’s what I’m talkin’ about. I think I can hear the water lapping at the water’s edge. Nice.

The lapping water enhances the peace and quiet while at the shore, don’t you think? So much serenity while making these images. My brother and nephew had been with me during the previous days, but nephew and his fiance headed back to S.F. and brother slept in. I literally had the entire place to myself. Not another photographer within sight.
Magnificent. Was the sky a shepherd’s warning of bad weather to come?
Yes, although not really stormy. We were leaving after I was done photographing and it did rain off and on during our trip home. No gully-washers though. 🙂
Gully-washers; that’s a great term.
Superb photo. Thank you.
Thank you for the kind comment.
Wow, there’s some really nice color in this one! Acadia gave you some fireworks on your last day. I also like how the illuminated clouds are almost a mirror of the coastline. Another beautifully peaceful image, Steve.
Thanks, Todd. The other days were nice but a little restrained where this was full-blown. Saving the best for last.
The way the arc of the clouds and the rocks seem to frame the rest of the landscape is beautiful — almost an embrace. After seeing your photos from this area, I think I otter go there some day.
Yes, you otter. It was funny how this developed. I had looked at the cliffs a few times to see if they would be illuminated with warm light but the clouds really didn’t look like there was much going on then bang! Good thing I wasn’t looking in the other direction.
A great beginning of an ending day at Acadia. You’re right that you were fortunate to have been looking in the right direction.
Peripheral vision and familiarity with the location made a big difference.
Fabulous composition with brilliant natural lightening. This is simply beautiful. I know you are glad that you planned to return each morning to this site.
Sometimes the plan pans out, sometimes not. I got lucky. Thanks, Yvonne.
Wow! Very Nice! And colorful!
Thank you, Reed.
I’ve long wanted to visit Arcadia National Park. This is an excellent reason why.
There is so much to see there. If you can, go, it’s a very diverse park.
Spectacular is the word alright. What a wonderful experience.
As often is the case, Nature provides what was not expected. Certainly true in this case. Thanks, Rod.

I’m glad you also reminded us about this day’s dramatic awakening.
I saw 6 sunrises but this was the highlight for sure.
