DownEast2

So many great images... so hard to choose. After lunch, our 'road trip' took us along the loop trail which circles Acadia National Park. It's cliched, but around every bend on the road there was an opportunity for different images. In this photograph, one of the many carriage paths travels overhead, but below was where beauty was hidden for me. Startling... the camera is humbled here.

Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean. -John Muir

  1. I agree with you... good to take a nature's walk sometimes; away from everything... what best to bring along your camera and sharing what you experience ! Thanks !!!!

  12. Wonderful capture. It invites the mind to still itself and just soak it all in.
