Into the Distance, Acadia National Park, Maine

In stark contrast to my previous post, this is a peaceful image of the sunset as seen from Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park, Maine. The clouds were very thick and we were only able to get a brief glimpse of the sun as it set; it had faded from view momentarily as it sank into the distance.

"Into the Distance"

 

To obtain this single manual exposure, I used a Lee 3-step hard-edged graduated neutral density filter (part of a set I bought here), held in place with Lee’s foundation kit. Because this is a sunset scene, a Singh Ray Darryl Benson reverse graduated filter would have been even better. That’s on my shopping list. 🙂

 

“Into the distance, a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
Fatal attraction is holding me fast,
How can I escape this irresistible grasp?”
– Pink Floyd, Learning to Fly
