Otter Cliffs at Acadia National Park, Maine   4 comments


~
I never was much of one for waking up early, nor much for black & white photography. But, some places suggest pushing past those preferences into finding something new.

Crawling out of the sleeping bag (the nice… warm… sleeping bag, mind you) at about 4:30AM each day, we made a daily pilgrimage down to the cliffs to catch the sunrise. Due to the great weather we had during the trip, the sunrises were a bit droll because of few clouds, so I started playing around with long exposures, neutral density filters, and alternative views of the area.

During post-processing, I tried to conjure up some of Bob Lussier’s great B&W photography. Bob sets the bar quite high, but at least it’s something different to try out.

1/8sec at f/14, 36mm, ISO 100, way too early.

  1. Very nice Rob, this places changes by the hour and cannot wait to get back there, love the long exposure. Do you camp in the park itself when you are there?

    • Mike — Yes, we camp in the park at a place called Mt. Desert Campground, near Somes Sound. It’s much better than the over-populated Blackwoods, although it isn’t very close to the ocean. It is on the Sound, though, so at least there’s a water view.
