Top of Cadillac Mountain on Mount Desert Island

On Top of Cadillac Mountain

This was taken near the summit of Cadillac Mountain showing the granite and sparse vegetation. Most of the mountains on the island are like this due to erosion and much of the soil and higher granite being scrapped off by several huge glaciers, over a mile high, that went as far out-to-sea as 400 miles. The French Explorer Samuel de Champlain made not of the unusual barren mountain tops in his logs when he was here in 1604.

Somes Pond in Somesville, Maine

September Green in Coastal Maine

September is a beautiful month. The temperature is cooler and the air becomes more clear with much less atmospheric haze which largely finds its way to coastal Maine from the large cities in southern New England. There is an interesting blend of color happening this time of year. There is still much greenery but with some spots of color change here and there creating some nice accents.

To Show the Splendor, Panoramics Rule

Greg A. Hartford, photographer, author, publisherMost of us spend our days in places where we have a limited view of distant objects, and where there is much going on. Perhaps there are many distractions as well. But then, everything changes once we find our high ground, where we are able to look much further in the distance, and even move our heads from left to right, while taking in the great expanse that unfolds in front of us. It seems to pull the breath right out of our chests at the same time as it fills us with an appreciation for majesty. Cadillac Mountain, located on the coast of Maine in Acadia National Park, does this for us. A panoramic image capture is one of the ways that we hope to convey this experience.
