Mount Desert Island, Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor and Camden Maine

October 21, 2015  •  2 Comments

This past weekend my wife and I had a weekend away in northern Maine. We had only been up to Stonnington way back in the late 70's and wanted to see Acadia National Park for the first time. I had been up to the Rockport/Camden area a couple of times and really enjoyed the area. So we took the long drive up on Friday and landed in Camden on Friday night. We knew the weather was about to change and we woke up to a little rain and much colder weather. So as we headed out to visit Camden, the front that went by created some interesting photographic opportunities. The first thing to jump out at me was a nice yellow leaf in the driveway covered with rain drops. At first the light was very flat with the cloud cover then an amazing side light coming from the east over the water created a very interesting image.

As we made our way down to the waterfront the light was really cool as the passing front cleared out with beautiful clouds. The sun was heating up the docks and schooners and gave us some great opportunities.

The images above were made with the Leica MP 240 w/35mm Summicron and Sony Nex-7 with the 90mm Tele-Elmarit. We continued on our trip up to Bar Harbor and the light was just gorgeous. When we got to Bar Harbor and settled in we had some more weather come through and give us some more great opportunities.

We then headed up to Cadillac Mtn. and were greeted by windy cold weather and thunder clouds moving through as the cold front moved over us. 

After we had a spectacular showing on top of Cadillac Mtn. we headed back to Bar Harbor to relax. When we got back a light rain was moving through and gave us a grand rainbow and a magnificent sunset. The next day we headed back out to Acadia National Park for some more shooting.

We had a great short trip but I will be back to photograph either this winter or next year. I loved this place.
