Counting down the days until vacation. At last. It’s been 15 months since our last visit to Acadia National Park (ME).

It was just that kind of day yesterday. When I got up yesterday the forecast was for overcast with fog. I was really interested in shooting in the fog so I got charged up… until I looked outside and saw clear skies and no fog. Yep it was a cloudless morning with bright sun. I [...]
