3 Acadia Landscapes & A Dining Room Still Life

A visit from Keith generated some wonderful pictures of Acadia National Park so I thought I’d share them here:

• There were no people but lots of snow at Jordan Pond on May 7. This is one of the most photographed scenes in the park and, during high season, this shoreline is packed like a Wal-Mart check out line on Black Friday. Amazing to have the place all to ourselves.

• The payoff for climbing the Beehive Cliff jungle gym bars and scaling its narrow ledges 500 feet above Sand Beach is a visit to a small lake called “The Bowl.” That’s Champlain Mountain in the background.

• Somes Sound is the diet soda of fjords. A valley on Mount Desert Island flooded by the sea, just not deep enough to qualify for a Norwegian fjord so they call it a fjard. Whatever, Sergeant Drive is the place to be at sunset.

• The Oxford American food issue recently published a wonderful table setting photo by Matt Armendariz. It inspired me to take this picture in our dining room.
