Acadia Foliage - Thunder Hole, Acadia National Park, Maine

On our post Maine Lighthouse Photo Tour, we were lucky to time it perfectly with the peak of the foliage season in Acadia National Park. Pure luck, as the peak can occur over a six-week window from late September to the end of October. On our first morning in Acadia, we stopped at Thunder Hole to shoot the rugged coast. While we were hoping to hear the famous 'thundering sound" made when the tide is in, all we heard were a few low 'booms". Despite that, we had a beautiful sunrise, and we were able to capture some terrific shots. Walking up toward the parking lot, I happened to look north on the one-way Park Loop Road and saw this glorious scene with the Maine foliage on full display.
