Morning light illuminates granite, Acadia National Park

Sunrise illuminates granite boulders on Mount Cadillac in Acadia National Park
The golden rays of a mid-August sunrise cast a warm glow on the granite in Acadia National Park

My wife and I took a much needed final summer trip to Acadia National Park a few weeks ago. We've been wanting to see the park ever since moving to New England, and it did not disappoint! Two of our three mornings in the area we headed up to the summit of Mount Cadillac to catch the sunrise, which was a definite highlight of our time there. Acadia is certainly not a park to visit if you're hoping to photograph wildlife, but the landscapes are incredible. There's something very special about the mix of granite, water, trees, and sunshine on Mount Desert Island and I can't wait to return!
