Acadia Zen

This zen-like rock formation sits at Otter Cliff, among many others.  After I was done photographing the beautiful seascape I decided to spend some time walking the slippery rocks to photograph the formations.


I did not touch any of them, although I’m assuming no one would have really cared.

As it turns out, Acadia National Park is full of rock formations, made by visitors.

Two of us from the Acadia trip included rock formation photographs in our book.

One of the coolest parts about photography is being able to photograph the same scene as other photographers, and having the end results look so different.

That’s due to many factors of course.

  • The photographer’s eye
  • Angle
  • Shutter speed
  • Aperture
  • Lens focal length
  • Time of day photographed
  • Camera sensor size
  • Megapixels

I’m sure there are other factors, but those are the first which come to mind.

I mentioned before that Otter Cliff was one of my favorite locations in Acadia National Park.  The zen rocks added to that statement. When I caught the rocks at the corner of my eye while photographing the seascape, I immediately felt relaxed and the emotion of comfort and safety.

It’s amazing what simple objects, like rocks and water, can do to your mental health.
