It’s been a long day. My work day started at 7:00 am and it was the busiest morning of the entire summer in the campground. That’s not what I would have predicted. On top of that, I had chosen to spend part of my work day today shadowing the crew at our Schoodic Woods campground – 1 1/2 hours drive north. I left for Schoodic around 12:30 pm. I love the Schoodic Peninsula and thoroughly enjoyed my time spent there. But, driving back to MDI I could tell I was losing steam and the long day was catching up to me. And then, I entered the island and noticed the dense fog bank starting to envelope the coast. I could tell my photographic journey was starting to have a serious impact on me! My enthusiasm to get a good photo opp today gave me a second wind. All I could think about was getting back to the campground, grabbing my camera and heading to the cliffs. The combination of the fog bank against a colorful sunset promised to be inspiring and I did not want to miss it.
I set up my tripod at the exact point where I captured the sunrise photo earlier in this blog series – over Otter Point. I took a number of pictures facing that direction but also changed perspective and swiveled the camera 180 degrees in the opposite direction. That was the photo that most inspired me. The simplicity of the scene and the subtle light was irresistible.
Just for fun, I zoomed in on the water below where my tripod was set up and slowed down the shutter speed so I could get a “dreamy” photo of the water churning around the rocks. Caught a gull enjoying a marine life snack!
