Today, I chose to walk to a favorite location near my camping spot for my next photograph. It’s a small cove off the Park Loop Road that is not visible from the road unless you pull over and look over the edge of the embankment. I walk here often and climb down to the cove. There is this really cool glacial erratic that is perched on the shore – I have affectionately dubbed it “Lynn’s Rock.” At high tide, the water crashes in around it and I took quite a few shots trying to get the splash of the waves. I am constantly amazed at the diversity of the color of the rock here in Acadia. This cove also has a fair amount of rounded cobblestones – and the sound of the stones rolling as the tide is washing out is so enchantingly meditative. There was a substantial amount of fog rolling in off the ocean while I was shooting here today. Breathtaking!
I have visited this spot numerous times and taken many pictures of this “rock.” I’d like to also share the couple of photos I took at this spot for the full moon rising on August 26th. The photos were taken at slightly different times – as the color of the moon’s reflection intensified. It was magical!
I like these shots. Did you deliberately set your tripod legs shorter to get a lower angle making the wave appear higher and get more sky as background for the large rock?
The second moon-rise image shows some nice reflection off the underside of the cloud as well. i have always had difficulty with sun and moon reflection on water–getting both the reflection and the celestial orb in balance.
Keep those daily pictures coming!
Yes, I did set the tripod lower to get that angle!
