Winter's Ocean Blue

January 23, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Sand Beach, in Acadia National Park, is one of those places I remember visiting throughout my childhood. I love spending time on the coast and have some of my fondest memories here in Acadia. I loved to scale the rocky coast watching the waves, walk the beach looking for shells, swim in the cold ocean water, and climb a mountain or walk a nature trail. Let's be honest, this part of my childhood that I enjoyed, I STILL enjoy. These moments were few and farther between during childhood as "everyday life" often kept my family close to home. Now, I have made these moments a central part of my life.

In the height of summer Acadia is bustling with Mainers and tourists coming to enjoy outdoor adventures. I like to visit when it is busy, but I really love to enjoy the park during the off season. On this particular morning it was a mild and brisk standing on Sand Beach. The sunrise did not reveal the sun and the muted landscape was not what I was expecting. I did however, decided to capture a few images of the landscape. The landscape was muted but beautiful with just a little snow and ice along the land in the background. I used a three second exposure to slow the ocean waves and capture the wispy flow of the tide coming in leaving just a patch of the beach.

It is a bleak, yet very beautiful landscape and the desolate feel of the beach in the winter. Sand Beach, Acadia National Park, Maine, USA. January 2015 © Jlynn Frazier.
