Pink Granite Versus an Azure Sea
The waves were pounding the coast of Acadia after a storm unsettled the sea. Ocean Drive was simply stunning. The pink granite coast stood in stark contrast to the azure sea. Each wave seemed bigger than the last. It was a fantastic fall day.
This composition was inspired by well known Acadia photographer Ed Elvidge. He created an amazing black and white of a wave crashing into the coast. I had shown his photo to some of the participants on the Acadia tour as an example of excellent photography. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to make my own image later that day.
Crashing waves are simply mesmerizing. If we had the time, many of us could have spent the entire afternoon photographing the waves. The power of the sea is truly enchanting!
