Photo of the Week – October 22nd

Posted by

Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island in Maine is one of my favorite photography locations, especially in the autumn.  It is loaded with photographic subjects to keep any photographer busy.  I try to spend five days here every autumn.  The fall foliage in the park tends to peak around October 16th -18th every year.  The crowds of tourists are more manageable in the fall compared to the summer however, there are more photographers in the park in autumn.  The park and the entire island offer unlimited landscape and nature opportunities.  Subjects like mountain-top vistas, ocean seascapes, wooded inland’s, lobster and fishing villages to natural wildlife.

This week’s photo was taken at an area known as the Tarn.  It was a windy day so the object was to try and incorporate the wind into the photo.  My idea was to use a slow shutter speed to allow this marsh grass to swing back and fourth in the wind while the autumn reflection of the adjacent mountain provides steady color.  The photo below is the result of the effort.
