The granite along the Acadia shoreline as well as on the mountains contains a lot of feldspar and that causes the rocks to have a pink glow when the warm sun hits it. Here’s a landscape example.
This was the day prior to my post earlier this morning. Once the sun cleared the cloud bank on the horizon there was some nice illumination for a while before another flotilla of cumuli (cumuluses?) floated in. I wandered around looking for interesting rocks and found this arrangement.
“There’s always one!”
It’s amazing to me how these rocks get tossed around, wear in the wind and storms, and take their various shapes. Originally they must have been part of solid granite bodies before fracturing then softening as the were battered by the weather.
