Northeast Harbor, ME

photo of Northeast Harbor, MEIt seems that in some ways, the further north and east you go along the Maine coast, the more interesting the landscapes and the lighting get. And this certainly is the case with Mount Desert Island, which is where much of Acadia National Park lies. But outside of the park are equally stunning vistas, including some really haunting ones around the tiny town of Northeast Harbor. The black and white photo shown here, which was taken in May 2008, shows the foreboding beauty of the Maine coast from a spot called Clifton Dock. From this part of town, one can hear the sounds of buoys and a lighthouse in the distance, and little else.
