TUESDAY, JUNE 13th, 2017
We’ll take the Park Loop Road to Acadia’s Boulder Beach, located within view of Otter Cliffs, presents a variety of photographic opportunities as we watch the sun rise over the Gulf of Maine. We’ll explore along the Ocean Path until mid-morning, when we’ll break for breakfast, rest and lunch and have a chance to explore the town of Bar Harbor.
After lunch, we’ll head to Thunder Hole, where our senses will be overwhelmed with the beauty of the downeast Maine coast, the smell of the ocean air, and the sound of the waves crashing into Thunder Hole. The rocky Maine coast here provides excellent opportunities to capture dramatic images of waves crashing against the rocks with spectacular views to the north and south from Thunder Hole.
Otter Point will be our location for sunset, where the rocky coast picks up late afternoon color and the ocean waves crash against the rocks.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 14th, 2017
Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, sitting high above the entrance to Blue Hill Harbor, will be our location for sunrise. Depending on the tides, there are a variety of photographic opportunities available to you as you explore the area around the lighthouse.
For lunch, we’ll convene as a group and have a critique session while we eat. Then we’ll head to Cobblestone Bridge to photograph away from the coast for a bit. The stone bridges along the carriage roads are one of Acadia’s icons. We’ll photograph Cobblestone Bridge as it crosses Jordan Stream. From there, we’ll head to Jordan Pond to photograph the sunset over the Bubbles, the iconic rounded peaks at the north end of Jordan Pond.
THURSDAY, JUNE 15th, 2017
Cadillac Mountain is the highest point on on the North Atlantic seaboard, and at certain times during the year is the first place in the United States to see the sunrise. We’ll finish the workshop by photographing the sunrise from this viewpoint, looking down on Frenchman Bay below.
