… on Blueberry Hill, on the auto road to the summit of Cadillac Mountain, in Acadia National Park, Maine.

As friend Bob Lussier might suggest, it’s “just another Acadia sunset.” Ay-yuh…
While Acadia National Park is one of the most beautiful places we know of, it’s also the second most heavily visited national park in the country. For those looking for tourist attractions and shopping, or to get rinsed off a rock in high surf, there’s no shortage of opportunity. But if you’d prefer solitude, you can find niches and other isolated spots where you’re just not aware of another person on the planet.
Blueberry Hill, however, is not one of those places of solitude. While we really wanted to get a good Cadillac Mountain sunset shot, so did 50 other people gathered at the spot. It was worth it for the view, and I met another nice photographer during the shoot.
This image is an HDR derived from nine frames, taken using the Promote Control. Those nine frames were processed in Photomatix Pro 4 using the Shadowmapping technique found in this blog, with a little help from Topaz Adjust. I found that very little needed to be done, though, as the scene spoke for itself.
