10/22/2010: hidden cove, Acadia

I am certain this spot has another name, but to us it is Hidden Cove. It is off the Park Loop road in Acadia National Park, and only marked by a small parking area across the road from what, if you are looking closely, is the head of a set of stairs that promises to lead down to the ocean. The stairs put you on that pebble beach. Walking the “ready made” trails out to the north of the stair head takes you to one of the points that frames the cove, and I took this shot from there. As you see it was still a foggy day and the vista is limited by the moisture in the air. At the same time, the moisture brings out all the rich tones in the rocks at my feet.

Canon SX20IS at 28mm equivalent, f4.0 @ 1/160th @ ISO 80. Landscape program.

Fill Light in Lightroom for the foreground and to bring up the detail in the evergreens, Blackpoint right for intensity, added Clarity and Vibrance, and Sharpen narrow edges preset.

This is the view from the beach looking out to the point from where the first image was taken.

Similar exif and processing.

    Beautiful. I love your photography. That is Hunter’s Beach, for sure. There’s Hunter’s Brook that runs into the sea there…amazing. Good place for starfish. Even swam there once 🙂

    Grey is a beautiful color, too! That is Hunter’s Beach and Hunter’s Brook enters the ocean by those stairs.

    These just show that HDR can be overrated. I like the subtlety in these shots which might be lost in a HDR treatment.
