07.30.2019 Gearing up for Acadia

I just joined a group on Facebook related to Bar Harbor and Acadia N.P. As I select images from the past to share there, I am also planning where I want to visit, especially some new places.  Last summer I visited one location every morning which seems counter-productive but actually worked out fairly well.  Doubt that I’ll repeat that.  But I am going to share this image at that location from 2010.  ’twas a dark and stormy morning.

Although the surf never really over-topped the rocks where I was standing, the water did occasionally splash up.  Exciting experience.

    • I wasn’t in any real danger nor was the other photographer next to me who was just a bit closer to the water. But…way to our backs was a photographer in a spot called Boulder Beach. Several times we lost sight of him when a big wave would hit the beach. But in the end he just got wet and was always there when the wave receded.


  2. Happy forthcoming visit to Acadia. It’s still fresh on my mind from last year.

    I like the wild sky and the rough surf. It evokes some of the history of the area for me better than prettier photos do. And what an appealing photo of you and Mary Beth. You look just as relaxed and happy as people should look on vacation — it must be exciting for you both to be planning another trip to the area.

    • The Maine coast has seen it’s share of powerful storms, even a few hurricanes. Acadia is known for its pink granite. The light from the somewhat hidden sunrise played a role here though.
      Thank you. Although we had lived together for a short time before this, here we are 6-month newlyweds. About the only time I’ve been without a beard since college was for our wedding and a few months after. We always look like this while at Acadia are definitely looking forward to the visit, but have a bunch of things to get through first including the installation of a new mini-split heating/cooling system. We’d like to eventually convert the house to solar but that may be beyond a financial comfort.

    I love that photograph, Steve. Amazing color and drama, and it works so well with the longer exposure. I hope you have a fantastic trip and can’t wait to see the photos you create while up there. It’s such a great location.

    • Thanks, Todd. Time is a funny thing. It’s the better part of two months before we go and I am eager to get there. But then it goes by so quickly and another year must pass before we return. Occasionally I make a solo spring visit but not sure how that would work with Bentley. He was frantic for the week I was in the hospital and it might be too much for him.
