The Bubbles over Jordan Pond

The Bubbles over Jordan Pond

The Bubbles over Jordan Pond is a classic Acadia view. I have taken 30 or more shots from this spot over the years, each one distinctly different.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide. F5.6 @ 1/800th @ ISO 100. Programed Auto.

In Lightroom, just Recovery for the sky, added Clarity and Vibrance, and Landscape sharpen preset.

From Bar Harbor 08.

    Great image! And it’s nice to see “how” you create the images. It’s helpful to us digital photo newbies! Now, if i could only find the time to study every image, plus all their settings…! : )

    Have fun in Maine. It’s a rugged, lovely state.

    Twin Peaks in Maine?

    I see many little rings on the water. Are they from rain drops, tiny fish feeding on knats, water bugs or as the title suggests gas bubbles from underwater vegetation.

    The purple hue reminds me of a scenery jigsaw puzzle of 1000 pieces I was confronted with as a child. When I finished it I wanted it preserved forever because I had never seen this purple hue in nature. I’ve seen it many times since and it always reminds me of that puzzle and brings back a bit of awe. (The jigsaw puzzle was impatiently taken apart and put back in the box since the card table was needed for poker. I didn’t fully appreciate this necessity at the time.)

    Thanks for the awe.
