Acadia National Park is an American treasure located on the eastern seaboard in the state of Maine. The smallest of the great national parks, still it has the largest number of visitors, owing to its accessibility to the huge population along the east coast and into the industrial north of the country. Lyn and I spent three wonderful days there in October and these photos are the result.
By the way, while at Acadia Park I met another photographer, Bill Swindaman and he has recently posted some of his photos from that weekend. Bill is an incredible photographer and I recommend that you check out his work!
Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest Lyn, who does most of the hard part: the photo selections. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
This is the amazing bridge across the Penobscot River we drove over en route to the park. Any glare you see in the first few high up photos is because they were taken from the observation deck (the top three rows of windows you can just see in the photo below) at the top of the eastern pylon.
