Cadillac / Cranberry Isles Blue Day

Every visit to Acadia National Park is satisfying on so many levels. This is the tail end of a day of rain and storm, with clearing weather coming in from the south, looking off the shoulder of Cadillac Mountain over the Cranberry Isles and out to sea. There is still a lot of moisture in the air and no direct sun on the summit. A blue day. But with a beauty of its own.

Canon SX20IS at 28mm equivalent. F4.0 @ 1/1000 @ ISO 80. Landscape program.

In Lightroom 3, some recovery for the sky, Fill Light for the foreground, Blackpoint just barely right, added Clarity and Vibrance, Sharpen Narrow Edges preset.

From Acadia 2010.

And another view. One of my risky tripod-less panos. View as large as you monitor will take. Click the image, and use the size controls at the top of the page.
