ACADIA PINNACLES 7 © 2006Acadia National Park, ME
I had heard stories about the beauty of Acadia National Park and was very excited when I had an opportunity to photograph it. The island is a beautiful jewel along the east coast of Maine, filled with soft, gentle green rolling interior spaces and a rugged, dramatic coastline. While exploring, I located a small trail and followed it into the woods until it came to a cliff overlooking the coast. To get the perspective I wanted, I had to place the 11″ × 14″ view camera right up to the edge of the cliff, which made it difficult to reach the front of the camera and work with the lens.
