Duck Brook, Acadia National Park

One of the best things about Acadia National Park in Maine is its network of carriage roads. These roads are open to pedestrians and bicyclists as well as horse drawn carriages. They provide a convenient way of seeing the park’s highlights without fighting automobile traffic. The roads are smooth gravel and go to each of the 17 stone bridges including the unique cobblestone bridge shown in yesterday’s post.

One of the bridges crosses Duck Brook where I tried my hardest to get a bird’s eye view of autumn leaves with the brook below. Unfortunately wind prevented me from getting a shot of sharp leaves with blurred water.

I did make this image of the brook itself. Please click the image to view a larger version.

    That is a tremendous. The tightness of the crop is bold but right. That is a shot to be really proud of Anne.

      Thanks Kris, I love doing the long exposures. For this one I think I just used the polarizing filter because it was pretty dark in there, but I have been enjoying using the 4 stop ND for the long exposures as well.

  4. Beautiful image! I love water art! perfect exposure, has a really nice texture to the water…love it!

      Thanks Ron! I experiments with different exposure times to get the texture I liked. I can never tell which one is best at the time. I have to wait to see it on my computer, so I always take a variety.
