07/23/17 Night Skies

Posted: September 12, 2017 in Uncategorized

The night skies up here in Acadia National Park are just beautiful. I have tried to catch the Northern Lights at peak several times, but have not been successful. Seems I’m always thirty minutes late. Some of my friends have incredible images of the Aurora this summer. My quest will continue for the next two months. These photos have been taken over the last month. You may notice, Jordan Pond is my go-to place when I receive an Aurora alert. A few of these were photographed under strong moonlight, almost like shooting in daylight. The end of peak season for photographing the Milky Way is fast approaching. It’s pretty cool, when you can see the Milky Way right outside your front door.

  4. Ray, there’s a song purportedly by a pilot, with the phrase, “put out my hand, and touched the face of God.” That’s the way I feel as I gaze at your Night Skies. Thank you. c
