The Ever Changing Sky

One of the things I enjoy most about living on Mount Desert Island (and being surrounded by water), is that the skies are always changing.   There have been days when I have seen the skies go from completely clear and blue to totally overcast and back again 3 times within 12 hours.

This “ever-changing sky” makes for interesting pictures.   The scene you shot just a few hours ago will look completely different when you come back to it a short time later.

ABOVE:  Clouds roll out and away over Sand Beach  and the Atlantic Ocean

As weather systems from the south collide with weather systems from the north, the struggle between clear skies and cloudy ones, dry air and humid air create a spectacular cloud show.    And there is no better vantage point for this show than from the top of Cadillac Mountain.

  BELOW:  The last remnants of a fog bank linger in Frenchman’s Bay

BELOW:  Just 10 minutes later, the fog finally leaves, except for one of the Porcupine Islands.

On this day within a few hours there was not a cloud in the sky.   Another hour later, the clouds had returned!    This “Ever Changing Sky” is teaching me to live in the moment!
