Little Long Pond is just down the street from the cottage we rent in Seal Harbor. It’s part of Acadia National Park in Maine. It’s where all the dogs come to swim. Otter Cliffs is a favorite spot for rappelling by the climbers in the park.

This was our last visit to see the loons on Upper Hadock Pond in Acadia National Park, Maine. The chick was getting big and doing fine. See you guys next year.

07/28/15 Barred Owls in Acadia

Posted: August 11, 2015 in Uncategorized

Last year on a hike on the Jesup Trail, we spotted a barred owl. Of course, at that time I had no telephoto lens with me. This year we decided to take a look again. Well, no owl on the Jesup, but on the way back on the Hemlock Trail, we got lucky. One of the owlets was sitting on a branch directly over the trail. The little guy didn’t seem to mind. After some time it actually flew down just to our side. A few days later we went back to try again. This time we found “mommy”. I walked right past, but Sharon spotted her. They blend in with the trees so well. The Park Ranger said there were four owlets, we only saw the one. It was 2-3 months old.

Blue Moon off Acadia.

Took advantage of the dark moon and headed to Sand Beach in Acadia Park to shoot the Milky Way. It was a beautiful clear, still night. Lots of people star gazing on the beach. I shot the stars with New Jersey friend, Joe Gilozzo.

Cadillac Mountain is always a great place for sunsets. Sharon and I spent the night with friend and photographer, Joe Gilozzo and his family.
