Great image here. My wife and I are headed to Bar Harbor among other New England areas this fall (we hope) to see the color changes. Any advice for Bar Harbor?

Mike, we actually started to see the foliage starting to change this past weekend. Well, the wife did. Me, being colorblind, it's really never a big deal to me at all. As for Bar Harbor, such a beautiful place. One of the things I'll always remember is the weather. When we were there, it was 72-74 sunny and clear each day with little to no humidity. Perfect as perfect can get. Just read up on the trails and sites to see. Acadia is beautiful too.

Love the 2nd shot to help see how it is situated.

Next time, you have to swim out a few hundred meters off the rocks to get us that angle as well, ok? ;)

Both shots are truly nice Lester, but my favorite shot is the second one. By including a wider angle of view, you really put the lighthouse in real perspective to it's surroundings.

Often mistaken, but never in doubt.

Yes... My wife and I were just there last week as well. BEAUTIFUL all way around!!
If you get the chance, I'd definitely suggest a trip to Isle Au Haut. Take the fairy over and hike the cliff side trails.. AMAZING. You'll love it. Posting my pics shortly.

Very long shot of Sherries Lighthouse (Ynys Y Moelrhoniaid) in hazy weather.
The Skerries Lighthouse was first lit on the highest point of the largest island in The Skerries, Isle of Anglesey after 1716 by William Trench and rebuilt around 1759 by Morgan’s heirs for about £3,000. The rebuilt lighthouse was a slightly tapering limestone tower, 6.65 metres (21.8 ft) in diameter and about 8.5 metres (28 ft) high. Nearby are castellated dwellings having cobbled yards and entrance stairs, along with symmetrically sited privies, a garden, a stone bridge connecting two islets, and a unique stone well-head building. An axial corridor leads from the dwellings to the lighthouse tower's base.

IMAGE: http://www.ware.myzen.co.uk/GalleryPics/Photos/Architecture/arch%20Skerries%20Lighthouse_001_13-06-18.jpg

And close to it West Mouse (Maen y Bugail) is an islet lying 1.1 kilometres (0.68 mi) off the north-west coast of Anglesey, Wales. There is now a white beacon on the island which is used as a navigational aid if lined up with two other beacons, one on the Anglesey mainland and another on Coal Rock, an islet a mile and a half north. The Welsh name Maen y Bugail translates into English as The Shepherd's Stone.

I like #2 better. 1 looks a little "too much", but both are great

Thanks... I agree actually. #1 is slightly over sharpened and a little high on the saturation.
Here's a little story about it. We were in Acadia and stopped in the Katahdin Photo Gallery. They will print your photos there as well. I met the photographer Steven Barnes and he processed #1 for me and made a print. While it is a little over done on the computer, it prints out amazingly well. He gave me the processed file, so it's a combination, my photo and his processing.

If you ever get the chance to go to Acadia and stop by the gallery, look him up. He's great to talk to and his photos are awesome.

Thanks again for the compliment on #2. I'm thinking of reprocessing #1 for the giggles.....

Just finished up a trip to Bar Harbor and Portland, ME. To get this photo I had to wait for a clearing in the fog to get a clear shot of Portland Head lighthouse. I also waited for the waves to hit the shoreline. Was a wonderful park to visit.

Thanks for these, along with the narrative. All very interesting.
You have some interesting subjects

That is quite remarkable.
Very nice, colours, subjects, all pleasing to eye.

Well worth the wait, I'd say.
Love the seascape.
Very scenic
