When: October 15-17, 2010
Where: Departs from the North River Wildlife Sanctuary, Marshfield, MA
Leaders: Greg Lessard, Professional Photographer/Educator and John Galluzzo, Naturalist, Mass Audubon
Cost: $375; $325 discount for Mass Audubon or Plymouth Photography Meet-up Group. Full fee covers all transportation, lodging and park entry fees.
The place names are as familiar to New Englanders as the names of beloved family members: Otter Cliff, Cadillac Mountain, Boulder Beach. They stand for Maine, for rugged coastlines and the ancient pine forests that crawl right to their edges. And they make Acadia National Park one of the most beautiful places on earth. Join Mass Audubon’s John Galluzzo and photographer Greg Lessard on a photographer’s journey through the sunrises and sunsets of Acadia, along the Tarn Trail, to Jordan Pond, up the Shore Path and to Bass Harbor Lighthouse and Eagle Lake. We’ll focus on the natural beauty and the manmade additions to the landscape, catching them in just the right light throughout the weekend. While Greg will share his photographic knowledge, John will share insights about the natural world that we will be observing.
This trip is a fantastic opportunity to photograph some of the nation's most beautiful scenery. Acadia is a mystical land where mountains run into the sea. A long time playground for the nation's elite, Acadia has become one of our country's most treasured National Parks.
We will visit some of the park's most celebrated views and some lesser known secrets. The trip will include views from Cadillac Mountain, Jordan Pond and Ocean Drive. We will also explore Bass Harbor, a quaint Downeast fishing village.
