The Blue Hour


no images were found

This is another shot from Acadia National Park, taken during last summer’s camping trip.

After a full day of hiking, my son Ryan and I decided to hit the Park loop road at dusk for some photography. The waves were incredibly high. A hurricane passing 200 miles northeast of Acadia produced dangerous surf conditions along Maine’s coast. Park Rangers swarmed the area near Thunder Hole preventing people from climbing down on the rocks.

We settled in as close as the Rangers would allow. It was apparent by the number of  fellow photographers there, that we had picked a pretty good place to watch the show. I grabbed a few shots, trying to get some decent compositions in the crowd and trying to stay out of other photographer’s way. Not easy.

Then, as the blue hour started to turn dark everyone left. I was shocked. Within a minute, Ryan and I were the only ones standing there. I made the most of the rapidly fading light and grabbed a few more shots. This is one of them.

  1. Great shot! I really love this image, and I love this place.

    My wife and I were once there when some people (ahem – including us) almost got rinsed off that rock, but before the big calamity that happened recently.

    Acadia is, without a doubt, one of our favorite places. Thanks for posting this.
