Storm Surge, Acadia National Park
February 8th, 2013
It’s always a good idea to be out in the field when the weather is not cooperating. On this June morning in Acadia National Park, getting out in the field was a real chore for me. I was feeling awful with a chest cold and it had rained almost constantly for three days. Each morning leading up to this shot, I was down on the coast waiting in the rain for the light to break. It never did on those previous days and when I awoke in the wee hours of the night, I had very little motivation once I realized it was still raining. It would have been very easy to simply crawl back into the covers and get some much needed rest, but I drug my butt out of bed and made my way down to a spot I had scouted on a previous day. As the sunrise approached the sky began to clear just a bit to the east and all of a sudden the light went off in a big way. It was raining on me as I shot this image and I thanked myself for not missing this morning. As quickly as the light appeared it disappeared only moments later and it was back to rain again all morning. I treated myself to a long nap dreaming of what the rest of the trip had in store for me. I’ll take many days of bad weather for just one chance to get light like this!
Join me for this springs Landscape Intensive Photography Workshop in Acadia National Park -http://www.josephrossbach.com/acadia-national-park-instructional-photo-tour/
Acadia National Park contains some of the most dramatic coastal scenery in the eastern United States. Acadia National Park, where towering granite cliffs tower into the breaking surf of the Atlantic Ocean, and pristine lakes and ponds dot the landscape of Mount Desert Island. Over this workshop we will be visiting some of the finest scenery in the park including Otter Cliffs, Thunder Hole, Cadillac mountain, Jordan Pond, Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, Southwest Harbor and much, much more. Also, did we mention that we will be in Maine to catch fields of blooming lupines. Bar Harbor will be our base camp of discovery where we will have easy access to all shooting locations over the workshop.
