Acadia Rocks -1

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 25 July 2011 in Landscape & Rural.

Continuing with our "Sunglass Tour," we see some of rocky coastline of Acadia National Park. Ice age glaciers and shifting of the earth are primarily responsible, as always. But it was just an amazing experience, to me, to sit and gaze upon the rocks and think of the times that have passed by. All of the waves and winters and seasons that transpired while the rocks remained firm. To me. putting things into perspective is what Acadia is all about, in oh, so many ways.

This image was taken from 545 Ft Gorham Mountain, which is closer to the shoreline than the much higher Cadillac Mountain. I am doing as I always try to do: Show those who have not had a chance to experience our national parks and scenery the wonder of it all or, at least, what it looks like. I would also strongly suggest tapping in to Pam's photoblog (Wild Mustang Photography) as Pam has some phenomenal shots of our parks . I will have more from Acadia tomorrow ;-)

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
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"
