Water and Wind on Mt. Desert Island, Maine

When we stay in Southwest Harbor, I often wander down to the Cranberry Island Ferry dock close to sundown. It's often windy and cold, but the light can be spectacular:

We saw the moonrise one evening. The water often takes on a pinkish glow at sunset:

There's always a feeling of tranquility at this time of day, with all the dinghies tucked in for the evening:

Another cold, blustery spot offering dramatic scenery is the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park. When the wind isn't knocking you around, you can see the town of Bar Harbor and the Porcupine Islands in Frenchman Bay:

Eagle Lake is on another side of the mountain:

The Ledges, on Acadia's Park Loop Road, is yet another windy spot with interesting photo opportunities:

When it's time to get out of the wind and thaw out, there's nothing quite like a hot shower with a few crustaceans for company:
