We spent five days on Mount Desert (pronounced “dessert”) Island off the mid-coast of Maine this past week. Mt. Desert is home to many treasures, including Acadia National Park, Bass Harbor Lighthouse and the seaside resort community of Bar Harbor.
Over the next several days I’ll be bringing you photos from our trip to hopefully give you a flavor for this coastal wonderland. I’ll start today with this wide angle shot of “The Bubbles”, two mountain peaks in Acadia that sit on the north end of Jordan Pond, and viewed here from this vantage point at the southern end. The Bubbles are best appreciated after lunch or a treat (read: ice-cream filled popover with native Maine blueberry sauce) at the Jordan Pond House Restaurant.
Nikon D90 DSLR with Nikon 18-200 VR zoom at the widest focal length, f/16 to increase the area of sharpness, 1/15 second, handheld, ISO 200, with a circular polarizer filter to cut the reflection on the water and pop the colors a bit.
