A day in Acadia National Park

On the occasion of a return to Lexington, I walked the Freedom Trail and the Black Heritage Trail in Boston, before taking again a trip to Acadia National Park – for a third consecutive year. While in Acadia, as I was getting ready to set-up a time-lapse, I downloaded hurriedly a 32GB memory card on […]

Photo Spot 31: Acadia National Park – Cadillac Mountain

Acadia National Park is my favorite landscape location on the East Coast because it packs in a small area (only 40,000 acres) such a great variety of scenery. The shoreline includes beaches, headlands, boulders, and slabs with a range of orientations. Large and small freshwater bodies are surrounded by two major forest types (eastern deciduous […]

New images and trip report: Acadia National Park – Isle au Haut

I’ve posted new images of the Isle au Haut section of Acadia National Park. How can you photograph a truly remote place with a feeling of wilderness, in Acadia National Park, one of the 10 most visited National Parks ? Visit Isle au Haut ! During my entire visit to Isle au Haut, I did […]

New images: Acadia National Park – Schoodic Peninsula

I’ve posted new images of the Schoodic Peninsula section of Acadia National Park. Acadia National Park is made of three units. In my two previous stays in the park, I had visited only the largest and most well-known unit, on Mount Desert Island, which most equate with Acadia National Park. In March 2010, taking advantage […]

New Images: Coastal Maine villages

I have posted new images of Coastal Maine. Unlike in the western coast of the US, where much of the coastline is public land, almost every parcel of the 3500 mile-long coastline there is privately owned. The slogan that appears on Maine license plates is “Vacationland”. However, with a bit of exploring, it is still […]

New images: Acadia National Park in the rain

I have posted new images of Acadia National Park. As always, new images are mixed with old images. Use the button “List most recent images” on the home page to see which images are new. It had been a decade since my previous visit of Acadia in Oct 1997. Although that 1997 visit was short, […]

New images: Maine cities

I’ve posted new images of Portland, Bangor and Bar Harbor in Maine. I’ll be the first to admit that I spent only a couple hours in each of those places. In general I do not spend extended time in cities, but rather travel through them en route to or from National Parks. For instance, I […]

New images: Katahdin region, North Maine Woods

I’ve posted two sets of new images: Katahdin Region, and North Maine Woods, the final installment of images of the Maine Woods (trip report). Although there are a number of foliage images, those two series are more about the relationship of people with the land, both recreational (hunting) and commercial (logging). In a place that […]

New images: Allagash Wilderness Waterway and the Lacroix Locomotives (with directions), Maine

I’ve posted new images of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, the third installment of images of the Maine North Woods (trip report). There are not a lot of places where you can be hiking through a remote forest and suddenly stumble upon huge, rusting, but otherwise well-preserved, steam locomotives, stuck one hundred miles from the closest […]

New images: Moosehead Lake, Maine

I’ve posted new images from Moosehead Lake in Maine, the second installment of images of the Maine North Woods (trip report). Moosehead Lake, the largest in Maine, sits in a beautiful area of the Maine North Woods. The lake, bordered by low mountains and rolling hills, features an intricate lakeshore (280 miles long) and more […]
