Wonderful scenery with great light and POV! #1187757

Gary Sagnor 10/3/2009 6:01:26 PM

Hi Donna! Thanks very much. I know this shot has been done by thousands if not millions of people and photographers. It really doesnít matter though, I had to do it too! I hope to go back and do it again. #8005771

An excellent but dangerous perspective. Excellent that sky. Nicely done. #8006844

Joyce Baldassarre 10/4/2009 8:36:06 AM

This is a magnificent shot!!! #8007140

Gary Sagnor 10/4/2009 10:11:28 AM

Wow! I'm not used to getting comments on my photos. Thank you all very much! Jack, yes it was a bit dangerous. I was as far out on the rocks as I could get. The wind was really beating us up! #8007342

Nikki McDonald level-classic 10/12/2009 6:07:53 PM

I think this is beautiful and I don't care how many times it has been done before :) I am on vacation and will be in Acadia tomorrow and the next day -- hope I can get a shot that is half as nice, Gary. #8031587

Gary Sagnor 10/12/2009 7:38:05 PM

Nikki, by the looks of your gallery, I don't think youíll have a problem as long as the light is good!! Enjoy Acadia, I know I did! Your compliment made my night, thank you. I look forward to seeing your work from there! #8031755

Nikki McDonald level-classic 10/14/2009 5:04:35 PM

It will be awhile before I post my shots but I can tell you they won't equal yours -- I was way too chicken to go out where you did. But the night was beautiful if very cold and it was an experience of a lifetime. Acadia is indeed beautiful and we were lucky to have sun today -- the rest of our trip promises to be rainy as well as cold. The exposure is great here, btw. #8037579
