Cadillac Mtn. a measure of the suns travels

Schoodic penninsula forms the eastern shore of Frenchman bay (Maine). From the west shore there is a great view of Mt. Desert (home of Acadia National Park) and Cadillac "Mountain" (yeah yeah, it is a mountain to us!) Mt. Desert runs North and south so is perfect backdrop for the movement of the earth in relation to the sun. Each equinox and solstice we mark where the sunsets on points along the Mount deserts shore. If you brush over the photo you will see the points of sunset through the seasons. Magically we found the place to view where the sun sets at the tip of Cadillac Mountain at the Equinox.


SUMMER SOLSTICE AND FULL MOON of 2005 (original post)


The summer solstice is back again.......time flies........This photograph was taken in 2005 but out it comes again to wish you all a happy summer... maybe there will be Peace by the next Solstice?


Since it was both the summer solstice and full moon last night, there was a lot to celebrate and photograph!!
