Who Needs Blue Skies?

As wonderful as it is to wander outside, soaking in the Sun’s rays, basking in it’s warm glow, often this is not the best time to photograph the landscape. Drama in the sky above gives depth and detail to what is often a field of endless blue. During our trip to Acadia we were fortunate to have some weather roll in as we toured around Mount Desert Island. The rocks had been bathed in a soft mist earlier in the morning and sprinkles would occasionally patter on our raincoats, reminding us to take extra care with our footsteps. Looking out over the Atlantic, with the heavens churning, presented an amazing view of nature’s palette. We paused at inviting locations and composed images of the coming storm for an exciting half hour when the drizzle became more intense. This picture was my favorite from the fleeting moments spent on the rocks beside an intensifying ocean.
