The leaves on this Moosewood Maple tree were just beginning to change to the pale yellow fall color that distinguishes this plant in the forest. The way the leaves reflect the filtered light in these deeply shaded forests always amazes me. Across the rocky… Continue Reading “October Photo of the Day 10.16.21”

October Photo of the Day 10.15.21

When we seek out vivid displays of fall color, we are usually looking for and admiring the leaves on the trees that blanket the hillsides and valleys. I went forth yesterday with my macro/portrait 105mm lens instead of my wide-angle zoom lens. Using that… Continue Reading “October Photo of the Day 10.15.21”

My season here in Acadia is fast coming to a close. Oh how I’ll miss the sunrises and sunsets across the ocean and sky, the dramatic coastline, the deeply shaded forests and the rocky, exposed summits of this beautiful island! 🙂

My favorite place to view fall color in Acadia is the summit of Connor’s Nubble. Shhhhhh……don’t tell anyone! It is a little out of the way for most people and, therefore, a nice spot for some solitude! I was all alone for at least… Continue Reading “October Photo of the Day 10.13.21”

I managed to get down to the coast tonight just in time for an amazing sunset! I had this little piece of the coast all to myself. Pure heaven!

October Photo of the Day 10.9.21

I simply was not finding anything that really caught my eye and the quality of my photographs reflected my utter failure to get that… Continue Reading “October Photo of the Day 10.9.21”

October Photo of the Day 10.8.21

I drove over to the Ocean Path for sunrise this morning. Parking in the Gorham Mountain Trailhead parking lot, I walked a short distance to a perfect overlook. To my south was Otter Cliffs and, to my north, the Great Head peninsula jutted out… Continue Reading “October Photo of the Day 10.8.21”

Yesterday, I completed the longest hike of the season – taking the long way around to the top of Sargent Mountain for a grand total of 9.8 miles round-trip! My hike began at the Carriage Road Sign Post #15 where I picked up the… Continue Reading “October Photo of the Day 10.7.21”
