Everything was unfolding for a quintessential sunset: low hanging clouds and a gap for the sun to sneak under the clouds. Captain Brenda piloted our boat to place Buoy #10 (just off Bear Island, near Northeast Harbor, Maine) in the foreground with the western Acadia National Park mountains in the background. And then we waited for dusk, a few minutes after sunset, for the clouds to light up with beautiful fuchsia highlights that reflected in the water. For a bonus, the red buoy light is on in the shot. This was taken during our Sunset Cruise Safari, needless to say everyone was please to see and capture this scene.
To learn how to create images like this, consider attending one of my landscape photography workshops in Acadia National Park.
