Otter Cliffs

I’m taking you back to the East Coast today and Acadia National Park. This was on the last day, a final sunrise before heading back to Colorado. Bob Lussier, who was our tour host for nXnw, took us to Otter Cliffs for the final sunrise. The smooth rocks jutting up against the pine forest makes for an amazing coastline and this one did not disappoint. This is what I think of when I hear of Maine coastlines. If you  have never seen some of Bob Lussier’s work, be sure to click on his name and head on over to his website.  He’s an awesome photographer!

Once the sun rose above the horizon, it just gave this amazing glow to the rocks.  Nothing like I’ve ever seen. It has me wanting to go back and explore the area again.  Hopefully I’ll get a chance to head back soon.  I used my 10-stop filter to smooth out the water in this image and then added back in a coral filter to bring back some warmth to the rocks.
