Light and Fog

During our visit last week to Mt. Desert Island in Maine, we headed south one morning in an effort to find Bass Harbor Lighthouse. The further south we traveled, the deeper we were immersed into a heavy blanket of fog that seemed, at times, impenetrable.

Not being one to pass up an interesting photo op, I put my Nikon D90 to work.

This portion of the island is far from the tourist scene and is located on the “quiet side”, so the lack of activity and traffic, combined with the heavy fog provided a surreal stillness.

I worried that Bass Harbor Lighthouse, my ultimate photo destination, would be so fogged in that I would be unable to capture the iconic shot that I longed for.

But first, I had to find it…     Stay tuned.

    Fog in Acadia? No way 😉

    I love how you have embraced the weather conditions… Fog in the Bog is pretty cool, and I’m staying tuned to see if you found my favorite lighthouse.
