Sunset at Mount Desert Island

Nikon D80, 1/30 sec at F/8, 70mm, ISO 400, Singh-Ray 3 Step Reverse ND Grad

Now lets revisit Acadia National Park. This was our third day of camping at MDI and this was taken at the top of Cadillac Mountain at sunset. It was an amazing day, we hiked the Cadillac Mountain South Ridge Trail which started from Blackwood campground, where we were camping, up to the top of Cadillac Mountain. It was about 6 to 7 mile hike round trip. The trail was just awesome, we were hiking at the ridge of the mountain and the views from the trail was just breath taking. One of many good things about Cadillac Mountain was you can hike up to the top or you can drive. After a full day of hiking I went back at sunset to take some photograph. The color of sky was just amazing that whole day. It had been raining the day before and I was so happy to have this wonderful day and the sunset did not disappoint. As you can see from the photo the sky was like a painter’s palette so colorful and beautiful. I did not have to do much post processing on this photo just white balance adjustment and a little bit of tone adjustment. It was just a perfect sunset. I hope you enjoy this photo as much as I did photographing it. Please leave or send comments questions.


Acadia National Park: Sand Beach

Nikon D80, 48mm,1/250 sec at f/4.5, ISO 200

This was my first time visiting Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. This photo was taken on our first day at Acadia National Park, it was a nice sunny and cool day. We were on a hiking trail called The Ocean Trail and the picture was of Sand Beach. This beach was interesting cause you see a lot of people on the beach but no one really goes for a swim in the water because the water is cold (<60F even in the summer time). I’m still in Maine and taking lots of photo to share with you. Remember this photo was just the first day of the trip, so watch out for more updates. Please leave comments and suggestions.
