First, if I may, I Just want to thank all of you for your wonderful and heartwarming comments made on my blog post of yesterday. We have probably all had someone or several "someones" in our life who has impacted us in important ways. It is always a moving experience for me to write things like that down, and then see the reactions that I get from other folks. I am so deeply touched by all of you and your wonderful, wonderful comments. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart <3

Now we return to Acadia National Park during A very short visit that Barbara and I made back in September of 2009 . I was not extremely happy with most of my images from this short trip because the vast majority of them were shot facing the wrong direction (duhhh) i.e. into the glare of the mid-day and afternoon sun. But one does what one can with the time and tools that he has. So, I shall try to find a few other shots that might not be half bad and put them up here.

Today's image we are looking off towrds Mt Deset Island to the East-Northeast of the main part of the Park. The rugged coastline and granite are magnificent elements along this coastline. I hope you enjoy!

We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
