Acadia National Park is a 47,000-acre example of the raw, rugged beauty of coastal Maine. It's a beautifully wild example of life along the Atlantic Ocean and a place I have explored several times but still haven't seen all there is to see.
I have a tenancy to stick to the shore areas of Acadia, because I live in an inland state, the ocean is therefore quite fascinating to me. There is a clean contrast of flowing water and immovable granite here that I have not photographed to satisfaction just yet.
There is also a quiet vastness in Acadia no matter when I go. I'm sure there are peak times but I generally find it to be a tranquil visit no matter the month or day.
Humans are very small in this landscape. Seabirds are much smaller but yet very powerful predators in this environment. Small sea animals make a their livings in shallow tidal pools and in the crevices of the immense granite slabs.
I look forward to returning to Acadia and exploring the coastal and inland areas more slowly and deliberately.

Exploring photography has been a life long passion.
