With the combination of warm weather and relatively late sunrise times (6:30 ish), I really had no excuse not to set the alarm early and head out to Ocean Drive to watch the sunrise. Acadia National park is one of the first places on the east coast to experience sunrise, and the fact that I saw not one other person in over an hour really made me feel like the sunrise was all mine.
This is also the first time I attempted to photograph sunrise, and while I wasn’t thrilled with my results, I got a few shots that are pictured below. Practice makes perfect, and strangely, even after getting up so early, I found myself to be very energetic for the rest of the day! I’m sure the 75 degree temp that day didn’t hurt; it were as if myself and everyone around me were coming out of hibernation!
