This image is another from the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge in Wells, ME from my vacation in late August. As I mentioned in my previous post, this part of the refuge is a beautiful 1 mile loop that meanders through forest and salt marsh along Maine’s southern coast. This particular spot is one of several boardwalks along the loop that provide incredible views of the surrounding area.
Typically on sunrise shoots, I’m packing up my gear once the sun rises high enough above the horizon and the light becomes too harsh to shoot towards it. Thankfully on this day, I had a scene behind me worth shooting, and simply turned around from where I was capturing the sky to the east and was treated to beautiful warm light hitting the trees and boardwalk to the west. This location is really quite amazing, and I was taken by the transition of marsh to forest, while also witnessing the transition from dawn to daylight. And did I mention that I was the only one there the entire time? An awesome morning all around.
