Clearing Skies - Acadia National Park, Maine

Jordon Pond, Acadia National Park, Maine

The first morning that the nXnw crew had was a rainout and instead of getting up at an ungodly hour for the sunrise, we got to sleep in. The good news was that the forecast was for clearing up in the late morning. In anticipation of this weather improvement, we headed out to Jordon Pond (not sure why it is called a pond as it as big as many lakes). It was a great decision as the overcast skies began to clear up. We worked around the lake and I took this shot at the southern end of the pond showing the bubbles across the way. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Acadia, the Bubbles (north and south) are the two mountains in the distance. As you can see, they do look a bit like bubbles. Both measure less than 1,000 feet high (872 and 766 respectively) but look considerable bigger. We probably got to Acadia a week too early as the foliage was not yet peaking. The photo does show a good start to the changing of the colors that autumn brings to New England.
