Title: “Sunrise in Bar Harbor, Maine on Mount Desert Island”
Photo Credits: Robert F. Bukaty
Location: Acadia National Park, Maine
“The sun just breaks over the horizon in Bar Harbor, Maine on Mount Desert Island (MDI). This view is from the short causeway between Thompson Island (on the left) and Mount Desert Island (on the right). Thompson Island is within the municipality of Trenton, Maine but is also part of Acadia National Park.” (x)
This photo stood out to me mainly because of its symmetrical nature. I am very much intrigued by the glassiness of the water and its ability to reflect not only the physical objects like the trees and the clouds but the vibrant negative spaces created by the sun’s light. Looking at this photo makes me feel as if I am about to take a deep breath of cold, refreshing, air. Even though I know the morning air in this picture would be quite cold, it is evident by the surface of the water that there is no wind. The rich red/orange tones of the sunlight add so much warmth to this photo and is enhanced by the dark almost blackness of the silhouetted trees. I would love to be on this beach with a hot cup of coffee and the companionship of someone I care about…it’s too beautiful not to share.
