Misty morning photography of a marshy area at Jordan Pond.
From Wikipedia: Jordan Pond is an oligotrophic tarn in Acadia National Park near the town of Bar Harbor, Maine. It covers 187 acres (76 ha), with a maximum depth of 150 feet (46 m) and a shoreline of 3.6 miles (5.8 km). The pond was formed by the Wisconsin Ice Sheet during the last glacial period. It is flanked on the west by Penobscot Mountain and to the northeast by the two mountains known as the Bubbles. The southern end, and outflow, are limited by the natural Jordan Pond moraine, which has been supplemented by a small dam. The pond has clear water, with visibility normally 46 feet (14 m) and occasions of up to 60 feet (18 m) recorded, the deepest in Maine. It serves as the water supply for the village of Seal Harbor. It does not experience dissolved oxygen depletion in the lake depths.
Some types of boating are permitted, but humans and pets must stay out of the water
Maine Acadia National Park is a National Park located in the U.S. state of Maine. It reserves much of Mount Desert Island, and associated smaller islands, off the Atlantic coast. Originally created as Lafayette National Park in 1919, the first National Park East of the Mississippi, it was renamed Acadia in 1929. The park is one of the most visited wildlife areas in the United States and a paradise for every photographer and outdoor enthusiast. The park loop road provides easy access to many of the iconic photography subjects, such as Monument Cove, The Beehive, Sand Beach, Jordan Pond and the Bubbles, Bubble Pond, Otter Cliff to name only a few. The carriage roads and hiking trails provide further access to more remote locations where the park continues to inspire and unfolds its full magic. It is a heaven for macro, seascape, and landscape photography that makes for great wall art decoration. Especially sunrise and the light of the golden hours paint the sky in beautiful blue and orange and brings out the beauty of the pink granite rocks. Spring and autumn are favorite times to go as the natural colors of foliage are stunning.
