Acadia National Park: Return to “The Bubbles”


We managed to take a quick trip to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park again this September,  and visited “The Bubbles”.  (I posted a photo and some info about the Bubbles last year here.)  This one’s a little more dramatic thanks to the circular polarizer, but there’s a bit too much of a dark blue area right above the twin peaks, which can happen when using a CP at a wide focal length.  I should have known that and will certainly remember next time!

  1. I think it’s perfect Ed. Just stunning 🙂

  2. Another winner, Ed. After viewing many of David Patterson’s photos of Acadia, I will add this one to my “Reserved for a Visit” folder !

    Good point about the polarizer – but what’s the fix? (How will you change the capture next time?)

      It’s at wide focal lengths that a CP will give you that heavy coloration. The trick is to zoom in enough to avoid that. But if you must have the wide focal length, take off the CP. Choices! Thanks John.
