10.02.2019 Otter Rocks and Otter Cliffs

We went to Acadia N.P. for a few days.  As always, I headed to my favorite spot for daybreak

Sunrise was blocked by clouds for the most part, but every once in a while it would peek out from between them and warm the shoreline up. I wake up pretty early generally, but this was even earlier than the time at home.  Bit of a drive from the cottage as well but who needs sleep?  🙂

    I can certainly understand why this is a favorite spot. Beautiful location and that great, warm early morning light. I always love the range of colors in the sky at these times. Nice work, Steve.

    • What’s great about Acadia, and most all of the National Parks although I’ve not been to very many, is they are filled with potential favorite spots. I only visited a couple this time there but there are so many.


  3. We’ve been waiting for Acadia pictures to begin. Now they have.

  4. It is easy to understand why this is a favorite spot of yours, Steve, and why it’s worth losing sleep for.

    When I first glanced at this post, I read the title as “Other Rocks and Other Cliffs.” That would have worked, too. It’s easy to see why this is a favorite spot, and you caught it on an especially good morning. The colors and light are appealing, and the detail in the rocks is fabulous. They’re so crisp and clear: a nice contrast to the rest of the photo.

    • Every visit I make a few images here and last year I was on these rocks every morning but one. Part of that was the main sunrise attraction, Cadillac Mountain, was a zoo and impossible to find a place to park. But I’ve always enjoyed seeing the sun break the horizon from here. Catching the sun’s warmth as it rises low in the distance really amplifies the pink granite and the side light emphasizes the texture. I’ve another similar to this from farther back on another day but may decide it’s too repetitive. We’ll see.
