Eagle Lake is just outside the 19 mile Acadia Park loop road.

... and you'll find it connected to everything else in the universe.”

With the temperatures returning to over 100F with matching humidity, I thought I'd post another landscape/waterscape from the Colorful Landscape class on wetcanvas. My intention here was to create a cool, quiet mood -


Our class is almost over and it has been very informative and fun, well-paced and filled with new ideas to try and incorporate into my everyday paintings. THANK YOU Virgil and participants!


Today is more readying for classes that will start in about three weeks. New programs, new lectures, orders to place and more -- another semester begins!


Stay cool today!




Large clouds were rolling across the horizon near sunset, and the wind was whipping across the water making waves on the lake's surface. There was another photographer sitting very quietly just out of frame to the left. I wonder what his picture looked like.

A tour guide told us that Acadia was once all evergreens, but a great and devastating fire cut through the area in 1947. On the bare and scorched patches of land, colorful trees began to grow in, creating the park's now famous Fall foliage.

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. This is not a waterfall. LOL. (though there are a few waterfalls within a mile or so of this location).


The Rim Fire near Yosemite is creating a lot of smoke and clouds and haze up at Lake Tahoe. I went up there Friday night in search of a nice sunset and I found one at Eagle Lake. Sweet.

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” John Muir

Acadia National Park - Mt. Desert Island, Maine. I already miss coastal Maine. I really wish I could have spent more time there. At least I have photographic memories to take me back.


A three image HDR. Enjoy your Sunday.

Explored 11/23 # 151 - thanks everyone!

Here's a fun shot. As I was walking past the dock at Eagles Lake, I saw an alligator slowly cruising through the water towards to dock. As I knew he often sunned himself there, I prepared myself to catch him lifting up. I was able to click off several shots. I think this is the best one. Actually, he was coming out to meet me and say hello. See him smile in anticipation!

At sunset there was a lively wind whipping up the waves and pushing the clouds rolling past the hills.

I'm back into my archive. This is from a bike trip we took around Mount Desert Island on Acadia National Park's carriage roads.


Adam and I are going out for a hike today. I will catch up with you all this evening!

Returned from a great vacation on Mount Desert Island, Maine (home of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park) -- looking forward to catching up with each of you in the near future!

Sometimes it's as if nature doesn't compute. Our eyes don't match what we know. Our feelings transcend ascribed limits. And the humility rarely felt hits like a ton of bricks. This is how I seem to experience the Wallowas each time I'm there.


For those interested, the establishment calls this particular locale Eagle Lake.

It's the start of a new week. I wish I was back in Maine though. This is a shot of Eagle Lake in Acadia National Park at sunset.


Enjoy your Sunday and Go Dolphins.
