An Island Aglow in Maine

“An Island Aglow in Maine”
Photo of the Week #22, selected in October, 2019

From Week 21 to 22 we go from coast to coast… The view from Cadillac Mountain in Maine can be spectacular at sunrise and this bucket list item didn’t disappoint. As the sun rises over the islands and channels of Mount Desert Narrows, southeast of Bar Harbor, it makes for particularly beautiful photos. In this case, one such island glows in the morning fog.

Cadillac Mountain is one of more than twenty mountains on Mount Desert Island, and at 1,530 feet, it’s the highest point along the North Atlantic seacoast. Each day before dawn, hundreds of pilgrims make their way to Acadia National Park, eager to watch the the first sunrise in the United States that morning. When I was there, I joined well over a thousand such pilgrims.

Moored in a Brown Fog

“Moored in a Brown Fog”
Photo of the Week #16, selected in August, 2019

I took hundreds of photos during our tour of the Maine coast a few years ago. The fishing boats in this shot were moored in Seal Harbor, on the southern shore of eastern Mount Desert Island, near Acadia National Park.

We experienced rain and fog nearly every day during our autumn visit, which is normal for this region of New England, but the cold marine climate did make for some interesting shots. I love that the faded Cerulean-blue boat tells you that this isn’t a sepia or black-and-white photo.

Fishing Fleet at Rest

“Fishing Fleet at Rest”
Photo of the Week #8, from July 2019

Sometimes it’s the lack of color, like at daybreak in a foggy harbor, that gives a photo its unusual feel.  I love the contrast in this one, the sun forcing its way to the calm water.  The San Francisco area is famous for its thick fog, but I took this while walking the docks through the fog in Newport, on Oregon’s central coast. The town claims to be the “Dungeness Crab Capital of the world,” so I’m certain this fishing fleet is nearly empty on a clear morning.
