Black Tang Cove Sunburst

A summer sunrise from a small finger cove off Otter Cliffs in Acadia National Park. Morning light is challenging to come by in Acadia in the summer because it requires getting out of bed at 03:30 at the latest to get in position for sunrise colors. All too often great plans of beautiful light are squelched by the ever pervasive "marine layer", a fog bank that blocks the light from getting through up to about a thousand feet. It takes commitment and determination to get up the next day and the next until the law of averages yields a rewarding morning like this one.
