Acadia National Park, ME
Cadillac Mountain Sunrise Glow
Sunrise lights up the summit of Cadillac Mountain, Bar Harbor, and Frenchman Bay in Acadia National Park, Maine.
The summer solstice, June 21, is the day with the most daylight out of any day in the year. So what better day to wake up wicked early and photograph sunrise from the top of Cadillac Mountain, one of the first places the sun hits on the East Coast? Cadillac Mountain is located in the center of Acadia National Park on Mt Desert Island, near Bar Harbor, ME. Luckily, there is a road to the summit. I woke up at 3:30AM and started driving towards the summit, hoping the low clouds would clear and my early alarm would be worth it. As the sky lightened and I got to the summit, the clouds began to glow a brilliant orange color. I scampered around the granite rocks of the summit and finally found this composition.
My personal favorite - the photograph is printed onto high-quality art canvas, coated with a protective acrylic finish, and stretched onto a 1.25” frame. Canvases include mounting hardware and are ready to hang in your home. I sign and title canvases on the back of the print.
I use 100% cotton acid- and lignin-free fine art paper with archival inks to produce a giclee print. These are museum quality prints that will last for decades without fading. The photograph is printed with a white border to allow for easy mounting and framing. I hand title and sign the border of each print in pencil.
The photograph is printed onto a specially coated sheet of aluminum using dye infusion. This brings out a stunning amount of color and clarity and is perfect for photos with lots of color and contrast. The final print includes a hanger which floats your print half an inch off the wall.
