Colorful autumn trees along the Jesup Path, Acadia National Park

Happy New Year!

This image is from my recent trip to Acadia in October 2016, and is a good example of how, as a landscape photographer, you have to roll with whatever weather conditions you're given. I don't usually like blue sky days- they're too 'postcard-y' and lack atmosphere. And windy days make it really hard to get a sharp picture of anything but distant mountains.

On this day, I had to deal with both situations so I went out looking for color, in whatever forms I could find it. Combined with a long exposure, this image of trees on the edge of a field of tall, yellow-green grass (near the Jesup Path) becomes a broad field of impressionistic color.
